Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva, his Russian musician-singer girlfriend and mother of their 5-month-old daughter, Lucia, have split after about a year of dating.
They most likely drifted apart because of their busy careers, a breaking point in many Hollywood couples. Mel is currently in Mexico filming How I Spent My Summer Vacation, while Oksana is working on her music career, planning an upcoming charity concert in Russia, benefitting children with life-threatening illnesses.
Mel and Oksana plan to “stay friends” and co-parent Lucia. In addition to Lucia, Gibson has seven children with his estranged wife of 28 years, Robyn, while Oksana has a son with her former actor boyfriend, Timothy Dalton.
As always, we hope that Lucia will be unaffected by her parent’s personal drama.
