Mel Gibson faces further condemnation after details emerged Wednesday of the actor allegedly admitting to punching the mother of his child twice in the face because she "f***ing deserved it."

RadarOnline, who broke the original story of the star's alleged racist, sexist outbursts against his former Russian girlfriend, has released more details of a recording featuring the Oscar-winning star.

According to the gossip site, a "teary" Grigorieva is heard confronting Gibson while holding the couple's nine-month old daughter, Lucia.

"What kind of a man is that who would hit a woman when she is holding a child in her hands, hitting her twice in the face? What kind of a man is that?" she asks.

The 54-year-old then allegedly responds: "You know what -- you f***king deserved it."

The outburst came during a fight between the former couple at their Malibu mansion on January 6.

The admission sheds new light on a tape leaked to the gossip site last week, where Gibson is allegedly heard making racist, sexist remarks to Grigorieva, a Russian pianist.

"You look like a f***ing pig in heat. If you get raped by a pack of n*****s, it will be your fault," Gibson was recorded as saying.

Grigorieva has accused Gibson of punching her in the face twice during a fit of rage, giving her concussion and knocking out two of her teeth, but her lawyers "vehemently denied" she leaked the tapes.

A lawyer for Gibson has previously denied Grigorieva's claims, saying: "Oksana's deceitful conduct in trying to terminate Mel's access to his daughter continues."
