A photo of Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva‘s bruised and cut eight-month-old baby Lucia was revealed on RadarOnline.com July 21 — but a Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services insider tells HollywoodLife.com that the Sensitive Case Unit (SCU), which handles high-profile cases like Mel’s, has already seen the photo — and believes that it was an accident.
Since their war of the roses battle begun in March, Oksana Grigorieva has claimed she has proof that her former lover, Mel Gibson, harmed the couple’s daughter during a January domestic assault. Now, a photograph of 8-month-old Lucia has leaked onto the Internet via RadarOnline, and Mel could be in even deeper trouble.
The latest news in the Mel Gibson saga is perhaps the most harrowing as Oksana Grigorieva has told authorities Mel said he would kill her, himself, and their own daughter Lucia. Radar Online reports that after Mel punched her, “Oksana finally was freed from Mel’s grip and jumped up to leave but she says Mel then pulled a gun from the pocket of his short, pointed it at her head and threatened to kill her, Lucia and Sascha (Oksana’s son with Timothy Dalton), as well as himself, in an apparent murder-suicide plot.”
It’s been nothing but a physical and emotional battle for Oksana Grigorieva to get her life back after she split from ex Mel Gibson back in April 2010. Since she filed a restraining order against him in June, Mel has gone mad, repeatedly threatening her life. For her own safety, Oksana captured Mel’s disturbing words on tape as evidence of his erratic behavior in order to protect herself and their 8-month-old daughter Lucia. And experts say she made the right decision getting out and taking control of the situation. “The first thing you have to do [in a situation like this] is protect yourself and get help,” Pat Love, co-author of How To Improve Your Marriage Without Talking About It, explains to HollywoodLife.com.
Oksana Grigorieva may be completely lying about what happened on Jan. 6 when she claimed that her ex Mel Gibson punched her in the month. Not only does her very own dentist, Dr. Ross Sheldon, say that she was not hit directly in her mouth, but we went to our very own dental experts for their opinions and they agree … She did get hit, but not in the mouth!
We’ve all heard Oksana Grigorieva‘s claims that Mel Gibson attacked her Jan. 6, leaving her with a concussion and broken teeth, but we haven’t had photographic evidence — until now. RadarOnline.com just published the shocking photo of Mel’s baby mama with chipped teeth and a clearly swollen face, allegedly caused by abusive Mel in a fit of rage. “Oksana lost a veneer and the right front tooth was severely chipped.” says a source close to the Oksana-Mel investigation.
Mel Gibson managed to escape losing joint custody of his eight-month-old daughter Lucia, July 15, when his attorney Stephen Kolodny, appeared in an LA court to battle it out with his ex-lover Oksana Grigorieva. Oksana alleges that Mel attacked her on Jan 6, leaving her with two knocked out front teeth and a bruise on Lucia, who was only 2-months-old at the time. But for now, Mel still has visitation with Lucia, which includes daytime visits and one overnight visit a week. Read more
