Oksana Grigorieva was nine years old when Mel Gibson and his wife Robyn got married – she couldn’t have known then that she would someday be famous for breaking the marriage up. Now, the woman best known for getting knocked up with Gibson’s eighth child has spoken out about wanting fame on her own terms. Grigorieva started dating Gibson in 2006 after his drunk driving arrest. She told Reuters, “How can I be judged for falling in love? We live in the same city. I don’t control who I meet. I meet many people in art and music and film, but love is inexplicable.”
She also explained that their relationship wasn’t the cause of Mel’s divorce, saying, “I thought he was happily married until I was reassured otherwise.” And then she got knocked up. Funny how Mel, well known for his Catholicism, upholds the no condom rule but the cheating on the wife even if the marriage unhappy rule is flexible. ANYway.
The real point of the article though, is to point out that Oksana is a classically trained musician with an album being released on iTunes, so if you remember one thing about her, it’s that she makes music in addition to babies. “I’ve been working on my music all along, but eventually art has to be shared,” she says. “My heart is in writing and creation, but of course only when you share it with others, do you feel fully happy or fulfilled.” [Photo: GettyImages]
