Did Mel Gibson Hit His 2-Month-Old Child?
may have allegedly beat up his ex-girlfriend but did Mel Gibson also abuse his infant child?
RadarOnline makes the shocking claim that Mel's ex-girlfriend (and the mother of his child) Oksana Grigorieva has photographic evidence that Mel abused and left bruises on their then-2-month-old child, Lucia.
According to RadarOnline, Oksana has included the photos in a sealed declaration to the court which she will present before a judge later today when she launches her custody battle against Mel. The photos, taken after an incident earlier this year where Mel reportedly knocked out Oksana's front teeth and threatened her with a gun, allegedly show Lucia with bruises on her face.
Oksana claims that when Mel attacked her earlier this year, she was holding their 2-month-old child and Mel had hit the baby. It's an explosive claim against the Braveheart actor which, if found true, would not only make him lose custody but could also effectively end his career.
Mel has been under scrutiny over the past week as RadarOnline has leaked recordings between the 54-year-old movie star and his Russian pianist ex-girlfriend. In the tapes, Mel allegedly makes racist remarks, hurls misogynistic abuse against Oksana, makes sexual demands, and threatens to kill her several times. The tapes have caused the LAPD to investigate Mel on domestic violence charges and are at the center of a custody battle between Oksana and Mel.
This isn't the first time Mel's offensive rants have caused outrage: He infamously made anti-Semitic remarks after he was pulled over on suspicion of DUI in 2006. He has also been under scrutiny for making homophobic remarks in a 1991 magazine interview.
