Photos, Video Raise Questions About Oksana's Story

7/16/2010 3:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources connected with the Mel Gibson investigation say the photos and video of Oksana
Grigorieva
's alleged injuries are raising "serious questions" about her story that Gibson struck her.

Law enforcement sources who have analyzed the pictures and video -- yes, we've learned she had video shot as well -- tell TMZ there is "no evidence of external or internal damage," making it inconsistent with being punched in the face.

As we have already reported, Oksana's teeth were not damaged -- they were intact.  The dentist has submitted a sworn declaration saying one veneer was out and one was cut in half, but the teeth were not damaged.

Furthermore, several experts who have examined the photos and video say there is no evidence of any soft tissue damage, which would be present if someone were struck in the mouth, and it would be "highly irresponsible" for the dentist to so quickly replace Oksana's veneers.

We're told law enforcement is investigating the scenario that the damage to the veneers could have been self-inflicted.  We're told at least one expert who has evaluated the photos and video believes it's a self-inflicted injury.

As we first reported, Gibson's lawyers will make a presentation to the Sheriff's Department ... in part arguing that Oksana made false statements to authorities.

Mel Gibson would never hit another woman. Those tapes are completely modified.

First of all, she had some nasty looking teeth before the veneers, yuck!!!!!!. But for someone who got their teeth knocked out, she sure don't looked to be in any pain. The pic looked like she was smirking a bit.....

It does not matter because the damage has already been done. Mel has ruined his reputation. He has lost money (and will be losing more). He left his wife and family. In the end, Oksana will be the winner because now she has her 15 minutes of fame. After this incident subsides, she will be getting paid for interviews, modeling, acting, and reality shows.

In the end the truth will ALL come out. This opportunistic russian skank sees Mel as her retirement fund and Mel is pissed at having been duped, which no doubt is the driving force behind his rants. I read that Mel doesn't think he has friends but he's very, very wrong. Hang in there, Road Warrior. As it's said this too shall pass. When it does the next time you make a movie and it's released you can count my ass as one of those that'll be down there in the seats.

She's going to jail - extortion, filing false police reports, etc etc etc. And she should go to jail It's was most of us felt all along - she's not a victim - she's a victimizer. Sociopath - no conscience - will say and do whatever it takes to benefit herself. She's going to jail. She ought to go to jail just for trying to use the kid as a tool to get free things for herself..

Russian lying whore. No fat lip, no busted gums, no bruising. You can't get an injury like that and have no external damage. Probably got one of her russian mob friends to help her manufacture crap for her. The tapes are false, the evidence is bull. Mel's still an idiot for getting involved with the skank and not having better control of his own pecker.

So Mel's lawyers are feeding you, and Oksana's are feeding Radar. Fine, that's the way the world works. But, please do not suspend your own common sense. Mel is *on tape* admitting that he hit her -- "you f***ing deserved it."

And no matter how staged the tapes may be, which is more likely: that someone with an obvious huge rage problem went one step too far and struck the object of her rage, or that she struck herself in the face hard enough to knock the veneer off her teeth? THere's an old saying (from House, MD ;-): if you hear footsteps, think horse before you think zebra. Self-inflicted veneer injuries are zebras; domestic violence is a horse.

Why Mel's ex.wife involved? He say on the tape... his wife know about Oxana using him! Mel's ex.wife "brain washed" him about Oxana using him. All problem in his ex. Mel's ex.wife Set Up all problems with Oxana. Mel's ex. wife know him very well (!) She's now how push his buttons(!)Just thinking! Gibson's ex.wife and her 7 kids
can have Everything! But right now another women on the picture with her 2 kids! What that Mel's ex.wife and her older kids make Mel thinking that Oxana don't love him and using him. And finally Mel become Mad! Gibson's ex.wife make all this problem between Mel and Oxana! If he's ex.wife left them alone... Mel, Oxana and baby can be happy.

What kind of so called woman that is battered makes a video of herself. If women like her cry wolf what will happen to the women that are truly being physically abused the authorities will start taking them less seriously. I worked at a womens shelter and people should be outraged she is doing an injustice for women that are truly physically abused.

TMZ didn't get the tapes, so y'all have decided to carry the water for Mel Gibson. Nice one, TMZ.

Radaronline is being dishonest in not reporting that forensic experts have claimed the tapes have been tampered with.. there are edits/ gaps / fades.. it was recorded with a professional mike for distribution.

after seeing the picture my first thought was, how did Mel do all this damage yet, not bust open a lip or something! Doesn't make any sense at all and I gave her the benifit of doubt. She proved me wrong! Golddigger! You had me going, your children should be taken away and charges should be brought against you for being so cruel as to use your daugther as a tool! To claim Mel hit her too and now we know he didn't even hit you!!

Ok, she got me mad now....
Still doesn't excuse Mel's rage and I still think he's got a lot of rage in him too cause....well, you can get me angry and I still won't say 1/4 of the things he says in the most heated of arguments. I NEVER say bad things about other ethnic groups or anything so, I have zero tolerance for that crap. Basically, they are just a toxic couple that don't need to be togther.

Throw her in jail and have Mel and the maid raise the baby. Oskana and Mel both agreed, the maid was good with Lucia!

Oksana is a golddigging b*tch who set up Mel to gain money and fame.

I feel sorry for Mel. She is trying to take him for everything he is worth.

Yeah, Mel is a racist....so what? It doesn't diminish his talent any more than Michel Jackson being a child molester diminished his.

Grow up people. MEL IS THE VICTIM HERE.
