(Newser) – More than hearts got broken in Mel Gibson's turbulent breakup with Oksana Grigorieva—sources close to the would-be singer-actress tell TMZ that Gibson punched his babymama in the face during their Jan. 6 confrontation, "breaking her teeth and giving her a concussion." And far from shaking their daughter, as Gibson's camp contends, her side says she was protecting Lucia during one of Gibson's tantrums.

Adding insult to injury, Grigorieva complains to the Daily Telegraph that the über-rich actor is refusing to pay child support. "There are so many lies being said about me," she says. "I was trying to keep things dignified and be respectful to the father of my daughter, but what he is doing is cruelty. I am having to live on credit cards and borrowed money. It is not a good situation."
