more Leo not siding with Mel after the jump…

Radar Online reports, “Not a chance,” said a source close to the Inception star, when asked if Leo was still planning to star in Gibson’s next project. “Leo has earned the right to pick and choose who he works with and Mel Gibson is not one of them,” the source added.

Mel’s ex, Oksana Grigorieva, 40, has accused Gibson, 54, of punching her in the face twice as she held their baby daughter Lucia during a domestic dispute at his Malibu mansion on January 6.

Oksana claims that Mel after allegedly hitting her on the head and mouth, he then choked her.

I think Leo is smart, why risk your reputation especially when you’re cream of the crop?

Do you think anyone else would want to risk their reputation working with Mel after his alleged racial slurs and wife beater scandal?
