In November, Mel Gibson’s girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva gave birth to their daughter Lucia. Mel wasn’t there at the birth, but he flew back to Los Angeles for a few hours to spend time with Lucia and Oksana, then flew back to New York to finish filming on a new movie. After she gave birth, Oksana gave the first photos of the baby and an exclusive interview to Britain’s Hello! Magazine, and she went on and on about how Mel is “solid and faithful” and how he was a “hands on” father who “has been very doting and nurturing”. Well, that didn’t last long, according to the Enquirer:
Oksana is biting her tongue after praising Mel’s parenting skills. Oksana is suddenly steamed because Mel’s not helping with Lucia as much as she’d like. He’s not even living at the house he bought for his mistress – and worse, he’s back to night-clubbing with both hands.
“Mel can go days without even stopping by Oksana’s home and checking on Lucia – much less feeding her, putting her down for a nap or changing a diaper,” said a friend.
“Mel tells Oksana he isn’t raising Lucia any differently than he did his other passel of kids, and that Robyn really did the raising.”
Now, pals say, Oksana fears Mel’s ready to ditch the relationship.

This is both delicious and sad, right? I mean, I’m human – I feel for Oksana because she’s got this little innocent baby with Crazy McSugart-ts for life, and she’s starting to understand what a f-cking ordeal it’s going to be. On the other hand, what took her so long to realize it? And she got what she wanted – she made sure that she and Mel got together, and that he was stuck with her, so this is all her own bitter answered prayer. As for Mel, I have no doubt that he’s out there, solo, getting drunk at bars and doing everything that a raging alcoholic does. And for him, I have no sympathy.
