New, graphic photos of a battered Oksana Grigorieva — with deep bruises and swelling around her left eye — hit the web on Tuesday morning.

Radaronline has posted closeup shots of Grigorieva revealing the damage allegedly done by Mel Gibson during a violent January 6 confrontation; the site reports that the photos were taken one day later.

Grigorieva, 40, has claimed to police she was holding their infant daughter Lucia, now nearly 9 months, when Gibson punched her twice in the mouth and head.

A week and a half ago, Radar posted a pic of Grigorieva's battered mouth — her front teeth chipped from an alleged blow. (A rep for the dentist who examined her says that the damage was indeed caused by "being struck twice.")

The latest photos could be used as more evidence in the domestic violence investigation against Gibson, 54, currently locked in a custody battle with his former love.

The Oscar-winner's legal team has fired back back against Grigorieva, accusing her of attempting extortion and leaking the photos as well as audio of their shocking phone conversations. The Russian-born pianist has denied it. "Mel is lying," she said Friday. "He's a liar."
