(Newser) – The Mel Gibson-Oksana Grigorieva drama drags on—and now sources are coming forward (anonymously, of course) to claim that this isn’t the first time Grigorieva has accused a babydaddy of abuse. “Multiple sources” tell TMZ she previously complained to Gibson and her lawyers that Timothy Dalton, the father of her son, had “rages” and had physically abused her.

Though at least one complaint was in the form of an email that police have, TMZ found no evidence that Grigorieva ever filed an official complaint. Now, sources say investigators have been told about these past claims because it could signal a pattern of behavior for Grigorieva. Her lawyer calls the allegations “a complete lie,” and Oksana herself calls Dalton “a wonderful father.” In other news, you’ll soon see Grigorieva on Oprah. For more on that, click here and here.
