Oksana's Camp: 'Self-Inflicted' Injury Claim 'Disgusting'

7/18/2010 2:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources connected with Oksana Grigorieva tell TMZ they are "outraged" by the claim that her injuries were "self-inflicted," calling the allegation "absurd and disgusting."

0715_oksana_grigorieva_EX_getty_3
TMZ first reported ... at least one expert who has analyzed photos and other evidence concluded the damage to Oksana's mouth was consistent with a self-inflicted injury.

Sources connected with Oksana claim they have plenty of evidence to prove otherwise, not the least of which is Mel Gibson saying on the recording that she "deserved it."

As we reported, Oksana's dentist believes she was not struck in the mouth, in part because there was no soft tissue damage or swelling consistent with a punch. 

Nevertheless, sources connected with Oksana say the dentist's testimony will ultimately provide powerful support, in part because she told him that Mel hit her and that she wanted to protect him at all costs.  As we reported, the dentist says he observed bruising to Oksana's left temple area, but she did not want the photos he took to show the injury so she covered it up with makeup and hair, and looked off to the side when the pics were taken.

And one more note.  Sources connected with Oksana's dentist, Ross Shelden, tell TMZ, the dentist regrets saying yesterday that the photo circulating on the internet was altered and "he may have jumped to a hasty conclusion."

I know this dentist, and he will say and do anything for attention. His comments are always getting him into deep trouble. She should ask for a refund for her veneers, since they pop off so easily!!! HACK! LOL

TIMOTHY DALTON did not just pop in to visit the son cuz children services were there. i've been a paralegal for over 20 years with 10 years in family court. CHILDREN SERVICES DOES NOT ALLOW ANYONE to be present while interviewing.

if oksana and TIMOTHY DALTON were not on REALLY GOOD TERMS she would NEVER allow him into her house. why would she allow TD in her house to let him upset her kid who is about to give statements that will prove she committed a felony (false police report)?

some of you morooooonnnnns need to freakin think before you post! DALTON has been at her house for over 3 days! why he is not making a public statement is obviously due to fear of the media. look what the media has done to oksana (even with all her evidence of abuse) and even to mel gibson's doormat wife!!!

NEVER IN 20 YEARS IN THIS BUSINESS HAVE I EVER SEEN A JUDGE NOT ORDER SUPERVISED VISIT ASAP in a case like this. 9 times of of 10 in these types of cases there isn't evidence and the COURT ALWAYS ORDERS SUPERVISED VISITS AS IT IS IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE CHILD UNTIL FUTURE HEARINGS THAT PRESENT BOTH SIDES OF THE EVIDENCE.

THE FACT THIS JUDGE DID NOT (as far as we know - cuz file is sealed) ORDER SUPERVISED VISITATION TELLS ME THE JUDGE HAS BEEN PAID OFF BY MEL GIBSON'S TEAM!!!!!

even if you love Mel Gibson for God's sake YOU KNOW THAT 8 MONTH OLD BABY IS ENDANGER WHILE ALONE WITH HIM AT THIS TIME!!!

"Maria, Mel is mentally ill. He is a known bipolar. His ex wife's testimony should mean NOTHING. Just because he wasn't violent then in NO WAY means he's not violent now. These conditions can be exacerbated at any time in a person's life. Conditions change, get worse, get better, who knows. Her testimony should have been IRRELEVANT."

Excuse me but you don't know what you are talking about. Mr. Gibson stated in an intervew many years ago that he discovered he was a manic depressive (BD). There are various levels and conditions associated with this desease, and any manifestations or sysmtoms would certainly have materialized during his marriage. Please stop throwing out medical terms and subsequent judgments about something you know nothing about. You only make yourself look foolish.

I thought that whore got pregnant a little too quickly. Mel never had problems like this when he was with his REAL wife. Think about it Mel, if you're reading.

Pravda interview II.

"Oksana’s mum has never denied her daughter lives with Dalton in a civil marriage with a contract. This contract states Dalton does only provide Oksana with current spendings, but should they part, she would unlikely receive anything. The child is much luckier: he is the successor of Dalton’s savings. However, American and British press claim there is no warning to teir family life. Dalton still works in TV series and sometimes in theatre. Oksana looks after the 6 years old son.

Reporters, regardless, wait for sensations from this family. It is known that two years ago Oksana’s sister came to England too. Media answers its own “why?”: “To find another James Bond for herself”

she and her dentist need to work on their story.

This dentist sounds more odd every new story.

1. I don't know of anyone who ordinarily wears makeup to go to the Dentist's office without foundation and blush already applied. If her mindset was to protect Mel, she wouldn't come to the dentist and THEN apply makeup.

2. If she claimed she wanted to protect Mel, why say anything to this man? Anyone who has veneers knows they can be unreliable. Certain glues breakdown, certain foods/drinks can cause them to weaken. Anyone else think one of her teeth look like a cap more than a simple veneer. No, her claim to this man most clearly demonstrates her aim was NOT TO PROTECT MEL.

3. Why would Oskana allow photos at all? The dentist doesn't need photos to fix her teeth. And unless he was planning to call authorities it made no sense.

4. If she TOLD him about physical harm wasn't this Dentist legally responsible TO report it? Apparently he didn't. So why would he take photos under those cir***stances which could be used to adversely affect him? Does he take photos routinely of his patients? Are there other patients of his who have similar photos? Here is where I am going. I wonder if he routinely takes photos to protect himself from lawsuits, lower his insurance, ... I also wonder how many times Oskana has had trouble with those front teeth. Did this guy do the original work? I doubt it. Maybe this guy takes photos when he is repairing someone else's work? And maybe Oskana had reason to expect photos to be taken? Hope LE has secured her dental records.

. The most odd of course was this dentist claiming in an earlier segment that he offered for Oskana to stay at his home because he was concerned for her safety. A 40 yr old with an infant yet he didn't call authorities. Did he call Mel? Did he call anyone? What exactly did he put in the file?

Now this has extended past the two principals hasn't it? This Dentist's actions/relationship also need to be examined.

This is why she needed the tapes. She knew Mel's camp would do whatever it took to dirty her name and reputation. I'm disgusted with Robyn for lying about Mel. Robyn's either covering up for him because of the money or because she feels threatened.

Surprise for Mel and his team. Mel forgot about TIMOTHY DALTON...and Oksana's Parents! She have Support and Protection like DALTON's ex.wife and Mother Of His Child and like Loved and Dearest Daughter of her Mom and Dad. Oksana was born in the very wealthy and successful family in the Eastern Europe. Her family very respectful and intelligent.

MLE the Str[4]nge    

There is always three sides to every story. His side, her side and the TRUTH. Team Truth! But I digress.

For those with short term memory and whom are claiming that Mel cheated on Robyn with the Gold Digger, the TRUTH (and very much OLD NEWS) is Mel and Robyn were separated following Mel's 2006 DUI fiasco. It was Robyn whom filed for divorce a few weeks PRIOR to Mel meeting the Gold Digger.

Robyn cited the still pending divorce as "irreconcilable difference" and has also stated that the reason was due to Mel's alcoholism.

I'm skeptical about that leaked photo of Gold Digger's chipped veneer and feel that the photo is NOT doctored but rather, it appears to me, that it is not the most recent photo (i.e. from her alleged claim that Mel punched her in the face) of her either.

For all we know, it could have been taken when she first got those veneers put in and that could have been years ago. Looks to me that it was done prior to her facial cosmetic surgeries since her dentist is now back-pedaling and is claiming that the photo is shopped and that it isn't her nose but most of us can see that it's clearly her in the photo. Bitch please! I call SHENA****NS!
