A rep for Oksana Grigorieva is slamming reports that a brutal image of the singer with chipped front teeth has been altered.

"The photo released by RadarOnline.com is 'true and accurate' and real," Grigorieva's spokesman Stephen Jaffe tells Entertainment Tonight. "It was not doctored by Oksana or anyone associated with her.

"As a former photo analyst, I can say that I see no credible evidence of any alterations or 'doctoring' of the photograph as some have asserted," Jaffe continues. "The reports that it was doctored are simply false."

The photo shows Grigorieva, 40, with two damaged upper front teeth allegedly after a heated fight with Mel Gibson, with whom she is engaged in an ugly custody dispute over their 8-1/2 month-old daughter, Lucia.

In an UsMagazine.com poll conducted Friday, 67% of readers said they believed Grigorieva's injuries were authentic.

Experts who have examined the photo, however, tell TMZ it is inconsistent with being punched it the face. TMZ also claims that "law enforcement is investigating the scenario that the damage to the veneers could have been self-inflicted."

A Gibson source also tells Us that, although Grigorieva and Gibson, 54, did argue the day the photo was taken, it didn't turn physical.

Says the source, "They got into it, but he absolutely did not injure her."
