  • Hollywood superstar Mel Gibson has split from Oksana Grigorieva just five months after their daughter was born

    Hollywood superstar Mel Gibson has split from his Russian girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, just five months after their daughter was born.


    Mel is said to have ‘drifted apart’ from Oksana shortly after the birth of their baby daughter Lucia.

    This comes just one year after the break-up of his 30-year marriage to wife Robyn, who filed for divorce after learning of his infidelities.

    Reports suggest Mel and Oksanda have parted company on less than friendly terms.

    It’s alleged Gibson ditched the Russian beauty – who is 15 years his junior – after a heated row in which she accused him of going back on his agreement to marry her.

    And it seems a split may have been on the cards for weeks.

    Rumours that their relationship had turned sour have been gathering pace since Oksana failed to attend the big Easter opening of the Holy Family Chapel Mel built near Malibu.

    But Friends of the couple maintain the split is entirely amicable, and they plan to raise their daughter together.

    ‘They’re both working hard on their careers and trying to raise a sweet baby together. They’re still friends and they’ll both raise Lucia together,’ said one.
