Sydney: Mel Gibson`s ex-lover and the mother of his eighth child has claimed to have "explosive" photos that show her badly injured after a fight with the Oscar-winning actor.

Oksana Grigorieva has alleged Gibson punched her twice in the face, concussing her and knocking out two teeth, during an argument in January.

The Braveheart star, 54, has accepted the couple argued but denies assaulting the Russian pianist.

But, according to, new claims allege that Grigorieva has the photos to prove Gibson attacked her.

"You can see Oksana`s two main front teeth were broken and there are bruises all over her face," a news daily quoted an unnamed friend, who saw the photos.

"They will come out eventually and she is prepared to use them in their court case," said the pal.

Grigorieva and Gibson, who split in April and share a nine-month-old daughter together, are locked in a bitter legal feud.
