Radar Posts Photo Of Oksana Grigorieva After Allegedly Being Punched By Mel Gibson

Throughout this whole Mel Gibson/Oksana Grigorieva debacle, there has been one source leaving a trail of bits of information: Radar Online. It seems like they must have an inside source here—someone in the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department? Oksana herself? A close friend?—because they were the first to break the news of several of the disgusting quotes in Mel’s 30-minute tirade. They also were the first to post several clips from the tape, which we then listened to in order to tally up the grossness. And now they have posted a photo of Oksana, taken less than 24 hours after Mel allegedly punched her twice while she was holding baby Lucia. The image shows Oksana with a swollen face, her front two teeth broken. “Oksana lost a veneer and the right front tooth was severely chipped,” a source tells them. The site also revealed the name of the dentist who fixed her teeth and says that he saw signs of “blunt force trauma.” If you want to see the image, click here. But I have to ask—has Radar gone too far here? It reminds me of when an image of Rihanna, after Chris Brown beat, her was leaked onto the internet. Personally, I think publishing this kind of image is wrong and a huge disservice to the victim. What do you think? [Full disclosure: The Frisky was one of the sites that posted this photo. My explanation for why can be found here. — Editor]

In other news, Gibson’s camp continues to deny the allegations. And his ex-wife of 28 years has written a sworn declaration defending him. “Mel never engaged in any physical abuse of any kind toward me before, during or after our marriage,” it reads. “Mel was a wonderful and loving father.” [TMZ]
