LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) The audio clip of Mel Gibson using the N-word and calling ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva a "whore" during an argument are not the last ugly words the public will hear from the actor.

The celebrity website that posted the recording Friday has released additional audio, audio that apparently features Gibson ranting and threatening his ex-girlfriend.

In the newest audio, a voice that sounds like Gibson cursing and breathing heavily, calls Grigorieva selfish and says she needs a "bat to the side of the head" and a "soul."

When Grigorieva claims that Gibson assaulted her, the voice that apparently belongs to Gibson says, "You f***ing deserved it."

For 10 days, RadarOnline.com had posted written transcripts of secret recordings it said Grigorieva, a Russian singer, had made.

The snippet released Friday was the first audio of the confrontations that have been aired.

The two-minute clip included segments in which a voice that sounds distinctly like the Academy Award winner is heard telling Grigorieva that she is dressing too provocatively and that it would be her fault if she were raped. He uses the N-word at one point.

"You go out in public and it's a f***ing embarrassment to me. You look like a f***ing b***h in heat, and if you get raped by a pack of n***ers it will be your fault," Gibson is heard telling Grigorieva. "You provoked it. You are provocatively dressed."

David Perel, RadarOnline's founder and executive vice president, told The Associated Press that the site had heard "a substantial portion" of 30 minutes of recordings Grigorieva had made. Perel said more audio clips will likely be released in coming days.

The site reported the 40-year-old made the recordings because she was afraid Gibson might harm her.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is investigating allegations that Gibson was involved in a domestic violence incident with Grigorieva, with whom he has an 8-month-old daughter. That inquiry is expected to take several weeks before it reaches prosecutors, who will decide whether to press charges.

It is the second high-profile incident in which Gibson has been accused of using slurs and degrading women. He apologized after his drunken driving arrest in 2006 after it was revealed by another celebrity website, TMZ, that he had made anti-Semitic and sexist comments.
