Sources close to the Russian baby mama now claim that Gibson allegedly punched Grigorieva in the face and knocked her teeth out during an altercation in early January.
TMZ quotes a source who claims Gibson “punched Oksana in the face two times, breaking her teeth and giving her a concussion.”
The claim comes after Grigorieva filed a restraining order against Gibson, claiming he was violent towards her earlier this year.
Gibson’s camp say there was physical contact during their argument, but the actor did not get violent with Oksana – he was trying to get their baby daughter, Lucia, away from her.
Another source told TMZ: “Mel and his camp are spinning the facts in a desperate attempt to protect his reputation.
“She tried to protect his reputation, depsite her fears of him and his verbal and physical abuse. She regrets having believed in his empty promises to obtain professional help to control his violent nature.”
Gibson’s camp are denying the allegations.
Grigorieva’s lawyer said: “The true facts will be brought out in a court of law. Oksana will continue to abide by the ethical obligations and rules arising from a confidential paternity action and will let the court decide the issue in this matter.”
It’s difficult to know who to believe at this stage. But, as always, truth will out…hopefully.
