Mel Gibson's ex, Oksana Grigorieva, is pumping up her domestic violence case against her former boyfriend by releasing a photo of her battered mouth, courtesy of RadarOnline.com.
The photo was taken just hours after she claims Gibson punched her in the face while she was holding their infant daughter. "Oksana lost a veneer and the right front tooth was severely chipped," said a source familiar with the law enforcement investigation.
The image is now part of the evidence in the ongoing investigation by the L.A. County Sheriff's Department. There are reportedly photos of bruises on their baby, Lucia, as well. Gibson's camp claims Oksana shook the baby, which she has denied.
The Department of Children and Family Services is going to interview Grigorieva's 12-year-old son Alexander (her child with ex-husband Timothy Dalton), who apparently witnessed the Jan. 6 incident.
