The Mel Gibson tapes are disturbing and reveal a terrible temper, but Oksana Grigorieva is still lacking for evidence that the actor physically attacked her.

Until now ... maybe.

Earlier this morning, Radar Online posted a photo of Oksana taken hours after she claims Gibson punched her in the face during a January 6 altercation.

The image is part of the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department's ongoing investigation of the deeply troubled actor, who may face domestic violence charges.

It’s also being used by Oksana in her custody battle with Mel over their eight-month-old daughter Lucia. You can see the awful photo for yourself here.

The question is: Did Mel Gibson do it?

The OG

Not necessarily. Oksana says he punched her twice in the mouth, knocking out her teeth and giving her a concussion. But is the pic consistent with that claim?

According to TMZ, Oksana's teeth were not damaged, despite her dentist submitting in a declaration that one veneer was knocked out and another damaged.

Experts who have analyzed the photos believe that Grigorieva's injury is inconsistent with being punched in the mouth since there is no soft tissue damage.

In other words, it may have been self-inflicted and this is a shakedown.

There is "no evidence of external or internal damage," a law enforcement source told the celebrity gossip site. Mel has denied physically attacking Oksana.

Gibson's lawyers are expected to accuse Oksana of trying to extort Mel out of more than $10 million in return for keeping the tapes of his tirades private.

As for the rant in which Mel apparently admits beating Oksana, telling her she deserved it after she referenced him punching her, that's questionable too.

Mel's legal team wants taped rants thrown out as evidence because of "strong evidence" they were edited and tampered with ... it's all extremely weird.

Basically, the Gibson tapes are what they are - in terms of vulgarity, and proving in chilling detail that one of Hollywood's biggest stars needs serious help.

But there's also so much we don't know: Why he is SO angry? Were the recordings altered? Is her injury really self-inflicted? Will either face charges?

That we'll have to wait and see.

John Stamos will guest star on Glee this fall.

But there's nothing gleeful about his current situation: the actor took to the stand yesterday to defend himself against Allison Coss, the young woman arrested in December for trying to extort $680,000 from Stamos in exchange for not releasing allegedly compromising photos of him.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

Testifying in U.S. District Court, Stamos denied all accusations that he used cocaine and/or accompanied an underage Coss in a hot tub. He admitted the following under oath:

  • He met the then-17-year old in Orlando in 2004. She told him she was 18 and on spring break from college.
  • The next day, Stamos and his friends met up with Coss and others in a hotel room, where they were "hanging out, socializing." There was no drug use of any kind.
  • Following the Florida trip, Stamos and Coss stayed in touch via e-mail, exchanges the actor described as "flirty" but "friendly."
  • Stamos asked for "wild" photos of Coss in 2007.

Coss and boyfriend Scott Sippola are charged with conspiracy and two counts of extortion against the actor. If convicted on all charges, they could face up to nine years in prison. No photos of the star have turned up in any investigation of the pair's home.

Near the end of his testimony, Coss' lawyer randomly asked Stamos if he was a friend of Charlie Sheen. He replied: "No, but I know Lindsay Lohan."

You've gotta love reality TV.

On Monday night, Bravo aired an epic fight between Danielle Staub and Teresa Giudice. It eventually resulted in Jacqueline Laurita’s 19-year-old daughter (Ashley Holmes) ripping out the former's weave.

This confrontation actually took place in November, however, as it was documented at the time and Holmes was forced by the court to pay a $189 fine. Case closed, right?

Wrong says Staub's lawyer, Paul Giblin. Speaking to Hollywood Life, he said of the incident:  “We are going to use this footage and prepare a case against these women. We are seeking assault and battery charges, defamation of character and punitive damages as well.”

Don't You Ever!

First, we'll need a few minutes to stop laughing over the concept that anything could defame Staub at this point. Pretty sure her arrest record and sex tape have done that on their own already.

Second, any case Staub and her lawyer wished to have brought against her castmates would have been filed months ago. This incident is old news. It was simply shown to the world this week, on a series for which Staub makes hundreds of thousands of dollars to appear.

This makes Giblin's concluding comments positivelty hilarious:

“We will get restraining orders by the judge against Teresa, Ashley and all others involved... We are going to ask to impose sanctions against these women, whatever the law allows... This is some kind of conspiracy, it’s like a gang mentality.”

If Giblin is referring to the gang of Bravo writers that came up with this storyline, then he's absolutely correct.

The tape of Mel Gibson's racist, misogynistic tirade leaked a few days ago already proved what a disturbed guy he is, but we held out hope that at least Oksana Grigorieva's claim of him physically assaulting her was not true.

Not only is it true, he threatened to do it again ... and worse.

In a new eight-minute audiotape so vulgar and shocking it defies comprehension, Mel admits to hitting Oksana, says she deserved it and threatens her further.

This recording makes the previous Mel Gibson rant look tame.

Mel’s deeply disturbing remarks on the tape, which you can listen to after the jump (it is extremely upsetting) could be a powerful piece of evidence against the star in the criminal investigation that is being conducted by the authorities.

An Oksana Pic

Mel Gibson needs serious help. Now.

Rambling and so enraged that he's gasping for breath, Mel pants heavily in between vile insults on the tape, at times nearly incapable of speaking. It's not an exaggeration to call this the most bizarre, infamous celebrity meltdown in history.

Equally strange? That Oksana remains perfectly calm throughout, presumably because she's taping it. Not that Mel's conduct is in any way justified, but there are no words capable of describing this ... no one should ever be THAT worked up.

What could have happened to trigger this kind of rage?

In any case, the tape, if legitimate, which it certainly appears to be after we've listened to it twice, the tape is not only big trouble for Gibson in the domestic violence investigation, but for his career prospects. It's that bad.

It's so much worse than you think, we can't come close to doing it justice, but you can listen to the entire Mel Gibson tirade here if you can stomach it ...

This is a first: The View is facing controversy, and it's NOT over something Elisabeth Hasselbeck said.

In fact, that conservative commentator - whose most recent example of opinionated nonsense involved a shot at Erin Andrews - has nothing to do with why GLADD is taking aim at this ABC talk show.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

Instead, the organization has its sights set on Sherri Shepherd and D.L. Hughley, the June 22 guest host. On that date, the pair talked about the influx of HIV among African-Americans and blamed it on gay black men that were in the closet, aka "on the down low."

"When you look at the prevalence of HIV in the African American community, it's primarily young women who are getting it from men who are on the down low," Hughley said.

Added Shepherd, offering no data to back up her assertion: "It's so big in the black community with women because they're having sex with men who have been having sex with men."

In response, GLADD has taken out a full-page ad in Variety that reads:

"The Centers for Disease Control has publicly disproven this myth. And since June 22, thousands of people have written to ABC, asking that The View provide correct information to viewers. Unfortunately, those requests have been greeted with silence from both ABC and The View."

Panelists on the show are known for expressing their opinions and have the right to speak their minds, of course. But when making grand claims such as the one above, it would nice if they relied on facts to support their statements.

Mel Gibson's alleged racist tirade directed at Oksana Grigorieva is no longer alleged - the audio has been leaked, and it's even more disturbing than you think.

The enraged star can be heard below unleashing a profane, sexist rant against the mother of his baby daughter, using the N-word and other derogatory phrases.

Gibson accuses his ex-girlfriend of lying about fake breasts and trying to breastfeed eight-month-old Lucia, saying she dresses like ... we can't even repeat it.

Previous reports about Mel Gibson's racist tirade couldn't do justice to the hatred in his voice as his rage builds to increasingly palpable levels. It's kind of scary.

Whether or not he physically attacked Oksana remains unclear, but when you listen to the recording below, you won't find that allegation hard to believe either.

Be forewarned, the language Mel uses is extremely vile ...

Sickening. That these words and phrases even exist in the vocabulary of any person is deeply upsetting. What an absolute lowlife and disgrace to humanity.

UPDATE: If you thought this was bad, it gets way worse in a longer, more explosive recording leaked days later. Listen here to Mel threatening to kill Oksana.

Did I do that?

It was the catchphrase that made Jaleel White famous, uttered by the iconic character of Urkel on almost every episode of Family Matters.

But now the actor is in a legal battle that has him essentially stating the exact opposite: I so did NOT do that!

White is under investigation for battery, according to TMZ, as Bridget Hardy claims her baby daddy punched her in a breast implant while driving on the highway two weeks ago. She also alleges that White slapped her, and pushed her into a toilet once the pair got home.

Hardy filed this report on Tuesday and an investigation is underway.

Says a rep for the actor: "There was absolutely no battery... no abuse ... and the incident never happened. This is just a ploy in an ongoing custody battle over their young daughter to tarnish his name."

Between this allegation and the dirty Dustin Diamond sex tape, it hasn't been a pleasant couple years for some of our favorite TV dorks.

** UPDATE: The D.A. has chosen NOT to pursue charges against the actor.

Lindsay Lohan's day of reckoning has arrived, and an orange jumpsuit will soon follow - she'll be doing 90 days in jail for violating probation, followed by rehab.

The troubled actress must surrender July 20.

She's beaten the rap before, but from the very beginning today, the star's attempts to evade jail for skipping mandatory alcohol education classes were doomed.

She has now made good on the classes, but that wasn't true in May, when she bailed on her last hearing and ended up free on bail wearing a SCRAM device.

Whether she remained free or not rested with no-nonsense Judge Marsha Revel, who sentenced LiLo after incredulous prosecutor Danette Meyers took it to her.

Hard core.

UP AGAINST IT: The evidence against her too strong and the judge no pushover, Lindsay and lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley were unable to defy the odds again.

Court proceedings began with a victory for the troubled star. Revel ruled out the matter of the SCRAM device going off after the MTV Movie Awards June 7.

The hearing was thus exclusively about whether Lindsay Lohan violated probation by not attending enough alcohol ed classes at the time of the last hearing.

Not that she was out of the woods by any means.

The Office Manager at the Right On program testified that the program knew the judge wanted Lindsay to attend class once a week, which she did not.

Co-owner Cheryl Marshall testified that she violated the program by failing to attend the classes and coming up with a variety of excuses throughout.

Another year, another arrest for George Michael.

The singer was taken in Sunday night on suspicion of being unfit to drive, following a bizarre accident in which he crashed his car into a London building.

George Michael Concert Pic

The BBC has confirmed that Michael was behind the wheel and has been released on bail.

This is just the latest in a series of arrests for Michael. He faced drug possession charges in 2007 when he was found slumped over the wheel of his vehicle in Hyde Park.

Two years later, he was arrested for DUI, but released without charges.

In a statement, the singer says: "I want to apologize to my fans for screwing up again, and to promise them I'll sort myself out. And to say sorry to everybody else, just for boring them."

We have no idea what George Michael is talking about. The guy is many things. Boring is not one of them.

Paris Hilton was arrested in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium for allegedly smoking marijuana a few hours ago at a World Cup match.

Not as surprising as the Netherlands' 2-1 win over Brazil, but unexpected!

The socialite was taken to the Mount Road Police Station in St. Croix, S.A. just before 8 p.m., Det. Mark Magadlela later confirmed to local news organizations.

It is believed that Hilton was indeed at the police station but has since been released. No further specifics were given as to why the ho-tel heiress was busted.

Paris Pose

Details of Paris' arrest remain murky at best.

Paris Hilton's Los Angeles-based lawyer says the 29-year-old has served her probation period, after her 2007 conviction for alcohol-related reckless driving.

Unlike Lindsay Lohan, her probation is complete (as of January 2010), taking a lot of the potential heat off her from this screw-up, whatever it consisted of.

One TMZ source also reports that Paris wasn't smoking dope, but an officer has reportedly said that Paris was caught red-handed in possession of weed.

Another report suggests it was a member of her entourage caught with the stuff, rather than Hilton herself, but that the whole crew was subsequently booked.

More details to follow as the story develops...

UPDATE 7/3: Paris is off the hook for the whole thing, and has been released from custody, with police reportedly even apologized for misidentifying her. Her rep claims the culprit already pleaded guilty, paid a small fine and was released.

Sorry Paris!
