The nanny who was employed by Mel Gibson and who witnessed the actor’s now-infamous meltdown has died. Reports say that the unnamed woman, who was a potential witness in the pending assault case involving the actor and his ex Osksana Grigorieva, had been battling stage-four cancer and died over the weekend.
The nanny was present at the actor’s Malibu home on the night of January 6, when Oksana dropped off her and Mel’s infant daughter Lucia before going out for the evening. Shortly afterward, Gibson flew into a rage, “slamming doors, cussing and screaming at someone on the phone,” sources said. The nanny then called Osksana and asked her to return because the Braveheart star was out of control.
The nanny apparently left shortly afterward and before the alleged assault took place but was still considered a potentially strong witness in the case.
