Mel Gibson has met with detectives to discuss his claims that his ex-girlfriend attempted to extort money from him.

Los Angeles County sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore says the interview occurred on Sunday.

He says detectives only spoke to the Academy Award-winner about his claims against ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.

The sheriff's department is also investigating claims by Grigorieva that Gibson abused her during a January confrontation.

Neither has been arrested and no charges have been filed.

Stephen Jaffe, a spokesman for Grigorieva, declined comment on the meeting. The 40-year-old Russian singer denied the extortion allegations to celebrity photographers in video shot Friday.

Gibson's interview was first reported on Tuesday by celebrity website TMZ.com.

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
