Miley Cyrus

The Return of the

Mysterious Scratch Marks

7/13/2012 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0713_miley_cyrus_x17It's been a few months since Miley Cyrus denied having a self-mutilation problem -- but today in L.A., the singer surfaced with several ominous-looking scrapes on her left forearm.

Back in April, Miley sported similar marks on her arm, causing a firestorm of speculation that the singer had been harming herself.

Miley responded to the rumors, insisting she does NOT self-mutilate ... but she never explained what caused the mystery marks. Now, they've suddenly returned.

We reached out to Miley's camp for comment -- so far, no word back.

I think the kid is messed up, but doesn't she have a lot of dogs/puppies? They can scratch.

Yeah, it looks like dog scratches. If these were cut marks, we would have seen 2 weeks worth of pics with these looking much worse, since they are practically healed. The skin isn't even really broken. Light day?

Some people are just prone to getting cuts, scrapes, bruises. I get like that from thorns, or grasses when I'm hiking all the time. I am also somewhat clumsy...all the women in my family are If I had to explain every scratch / bruise I had there wouldn't be enough time in the day. lol

It doesn't look like anything more than cat scratch to me. Maybe she got them pruning the roses. LOL right, the pampered pooch probably don't wipe her own Nose.

I was going to suggest it's from her puppy but that might be a stretch.

You gotta be kidding me. The kid has a couple of superficial scratches on her arm and she's a self mutilator? Lame, stupid and desparate reporting.

If she is self-mutilating (and recurring marks lean toward yes), the fact that they are where they can easily been seen should be taken as a cry for help. Those who don't want to be stopped are more likely to harm where they aren't public, or they make an effort to hide them.

You can see the cuts more clearly at ROL. They are three parallel lines and an "X". She's obviously pretending to be a cutter to get attention, even making sure they are right under her new tattoo. She's desperate.

omg. maybe she was playing with her new puppy. . that has claws. . i have two HUGE scars going down my arm from before i got my cat declawed. if it was mutilation it would be in more places then just her arms and since we've seen her whole body i'm doubting we'd miss it
