Sources intimately familiar with the case tell TMZ ... on February 18, Oksana went to Mel's house and he allegedly flew into a rage. Sources say, according to Oksana, Mel had quit smoking that day and was in a "terrible mood." As TMZ first reported, Mel had also tried to quit smoking the day of their nuclear blowup on January 6.

On February 18, we're told Mel became insanely jealous ... allegedly accusing Oksana of having an affair with her landscaper. According to Oksana, she had to leave because she felt if she didn't Mel would hurt her and the baby. We're told after she left, an enraged Mel began calling ... and she began recording. 

Sources tell TMZ there was no physical violence on February 18 and the only type of violence between the January 6 encounter and the February 18 encounter was verbal ... not physical.

We're told all of the recordings were made on February 18.

I believe Oksana had an agenda before she ever hooked up with Mel! I don't trust her! "She" was the other woman so why is she upset that he's doing it again!!!

Have seen the video of the purported dental injuries---Would have been impossible to knock off two veneers without also knocking out the teeth and splitting lip to point where sutures would have been needed---Either Oksana pried off the veneers herself or had someone else do it for her. Also have seen video from Radar of purported bruised eye---Again, impossible to cause bruising like that without significant surrounding tissue damage and swelling...Maybe some bruising from her Botox injections or she used nmakeup to fake. What really worries me is whether the wacky woman also injured her own baby daughter. I feel very sorry for the baby and Timothy Dalton's son. Let's hear Timothy Dalton's story about dealing with her. who will protect those kids?
