Gibson`s ex claims she suffered from ‘battered wife’ syndrome

Washington: In a bid to explain why it took her so long to report Mel Gibson`s abusive ways, Oksana Grigorieva claims she was suffering from ‘battered wife’ syndrome.

Sources close to Oksana say that right after the alleged Jan. 6 attack, Oksana dumped Mel for about 3 weeks, but soon went back and became overly affectionate with the actor, reports TMZ.com.

Oksana told her friends that Mel tearfully convinced her the alleged attack was a one-time-only incident and that he would go into therapy to get better.

However, sources say her close relationship with bodyguard -- convicted felon Kristian Otto Herzog -- is further evidence she``s drawn to men who have violent tendencies.
