Was the "Cadillac Moon 1981" Already Defaced ?

According to news on several publications, The Art Inquirer informed its readers that the painting "Cadillac Moon 1981" by Jean-Michel Basquiat had been scribbled on its lower left side during the retrospective dedicated to the artist at the Museum of Modern Art in Paris.
However, a comment made by Olivier draws the attention to news that contradict the eventual time of that act, where photographs that prove that the scratches were made earlier, quite probably even before the exhibition at the Fondation Beyeler, are mentioned.
The Art Inquirer has contacted the museum and is now waiting for a conclusive answer.
