Danny Glover has refused to back his under-fire Lethal Weapon co-star Mel Gibson after the actor was accused of using the 'N' word during a furious rant at his ex-girlfriend.
Gibson has been hit with a series of scandals this month (Jul10) after four separate tape recordings were released in which a man - said to be the actor - can allegedly be heard making various threats during bust-ups with Oksana Grigorieva.
Several Hollywood stars, including Robert De Niro and Whoopi Goldberg, have reached out to Gibson over the scandal - but his partner in the classic 'buddy cop' movies is remaining tight-lipped.
A representative for Glover, who starred alongside Gibson in all four Lethal Weapon films, tells the Los Angeles Times, "At this time, Mr. Glover does not have a comment, and there is no statement regarding Mr. Gibson... The decision is that he will not (comment)."
