Oksana Grigorieva is cryptic & bizarre about her split from Mel Gibson

Mel Gibson's ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva gives press conference
“Crazy Eyes”

Mel Gibson’s latest ex, baby-mama and golddigger Oksana Grigorieva, is in Russia to perform at some charity concert. To promote her gig, she gave a press conference to a Russian media outlets, and some quotes are now being picked up worldwide. Question: how good is Oksana’s English? Very good, right? I’ve read her print interviews before, and she does come across as very bright, and very fluent in English. So don’t use the “lost in translation” excuse when trying to understand what the f-ck Oksana is trying to say in this interview. Here’s the bizarre part – when asked about her split with Mel, Oksana says in part, “I can tell you that after three years of relationship we have split up – suddenly and recently. Unfortunately, I cannot give you the reason. But you will find out everything quite soon. Here is the official version: We split up by mutual consent…” What? Three years together? We’ll “find out everything quite soon”? Is there an unofficial reason for the split?!? Here’s more:

Mel Gibson’s ex-girlfriend and the mother of his eighth child – Russian pianist Oksana Grigorieva – will perform in Moscow to help raise money for the “Give a Life” charity.

The singer/songwriter has arrived in her homeland after 17 years of living overseas.

Grigorieva told the press-conference in Moscow that she “always wanted to help children by means of music” and to attract attention to sick children in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus.

When asked about her own emotional state after splitting up with Hollywood heartthrob Mel Gibson just several months after their daughter was born, Grigorieva made it clear she preferred not to comment on their recent break up.

“I am anxious to talk about children; it is more important for me than my relations with Mel. But if you want to know I can tell you that after three years of relationship we have split up – suddenly and recently. Unfortunately, I cannot give you the reason. But you will find out everything quite soon. Here is the official version: We split up by mutual consent and we will raise our daughter together. She is currently with my mother in my Los Angeles home.”

The charity event on April 20 will feature Gibson’s ex-girlfriend playing the piano and singing songs from her album.

“Mel himself has directed several video clips for my songs. He has written lyrics for two of my songs and has always greatly supported me. He also gave me an incredible opportunity to become a producer of my own album. It doesn’t happen a lot these days,” Grigorieva said regretfully.

So what are the unofficial reasons for the split? My guesses:

1. Because Mel would continuously get drunk and call Oksana “Sugart-ts”.
2. Because Mel would continuously get drunk and call the baby “Sugart-ts”.
3. Because of the Jews.
4. Because Oksana found a new sugar daddy who is less crazy.
5. Because Oksana found a new sugar daddy who is more sober.
6. Because the Mayor of Malibu doesn’t do relationships.
7. Because Oksana sounds like a drowning cat when she sings.

I have more but I fear I’ve already gone too far. Us Weekly also pointed out that Oksana confirmed she’s going to have a tattoo removed now that the relationship is over – the tattoo was a hammer and sickle, “which Gibson had suggested for her.” What? Since when is Mel into communist iconography? Jesus.

    octo mom!

    I miss 1990’s not-so-crazy “Braveheart” Mel. I want that Mel back. Same goes for Tom Cruise.

  3. kai says:

    who gets a hammer and a sickle for a tattoo?? dumb.

  4. Jag says:

    @ simone

    That’s who I thought it was, too. Confused me for a second. lol She’s prettier in the top two photos, and looks weird in the third.

    Interesting. Maybe he got another gold digger pregnant?

  5. S says:

    In the first photo she has the same crazy eyes, that Mary Louise Parker makes.
    They split up because he cheated on her and was never home to take care of the baby, and he refused to marry her.

  6. Victoria says:

    How much work has she had done on her face? Just curious. In this day and age when someone has puffy lips I dont believe they are real.

  7. lucy2 says:

    3 years together??? Everyone else was reporting 1 year of dating. When did he and his wife separate?
    “You will find out everything soon” translates to “I am shopping a book/reality show/tabloid deal and won’t spill the beans for free”.

  8. Susette says:

    Even if that interview was given in Russian and badly translated back into English, it wouldn’t explain the weirdness of it.

    I call shenanigans on the US Weekly article about the tattoo, though. I read a few weeks back, that she was asked about the sickle and hammer tattoo and said it was faked for the video, because Mel thought it would be a good visual. The tattoo was never real.

  9. curious says:

    It all looks now that the whole “relationship” thing was all about the minute weakness of Mel that cost him too much.
    He went for a fling that was cleverly and professionally manipulated into an “unplanned” pregnancy after couple(!!!) of month into a “relationship” – if there was no one , there would never be another.
    And the girl could not take chances- she HAD to get pregnant ASAP to secure the $$$ stream, and this part she was the most skillful at- after all it became her career of so many years of clever planning and hitting the right A celebrity targets.. So simple – the pattern is there and way too obvious.

    So man got trapped- feeling stupider than ever. So he had to stick with the whole charade for a while- as long as he possibly could. Obviously enough was enough.
    Now she is only trying to rehab her reputation of a “career gold digger ” by all her charity,,,

  10. susieqinBA says:

    “We will find out everything soon” doesn’t sound like splitting on “friendly” terms!! I think she is VERY upset and angry and out to get him because he DUMPED her before SHE could dump him!!!

  11. snowball says:

    Maybe Mel’s gay and secret Scientologist, Robin was his beard for a jillion years and the kids are all L. Ronnies. Hypothetically.

    OctoRussian’s the 2nd Gen Mel’s Katie and their baby is actually Tommy’s, the swimmers got mixed up at Xenu’s headquarters?

  12. e says:

    maybe he is getting back w his wife

  13. Shay says:

    She must be soooooooo happy, and I don’t blame her. She gets uber money now and she no longer has to suffer the cringeworthy Mel foot-in-mouth moments.

  15. Sumodo1 says:

    @ “e” — Ding ding ding! We have a winner. Mel is going back to his wife. (He’s cheap).

  16. Q says:

    I’m with you, Lisa – gimme back my only slightly nutso 90’s Mel. Braveheart was on all weekend and I couldn’t not watch, even though I just kept thinking “BIGOT” every time he was on screen.

  17. Tia C says:

    Well, that was quick.

  18. Tazina says:

    Gold Digger. She got out of that as quick as possible. At least Heather Mills stuck it out for four years to get her payday.

  19. Wench. says:

    I’ve never noticed before but, goodness gracious moi, she’s pretty.

  20. kiddin says:

    You are kidding, right?
    she is not pretty more like she is petty
    she’s spent Mel’s doe to get herself
    expansive facials and luxury spas
    but man she ain’t pretty. She has no pitty for 10 year old Tommy.
    She is the UGLIEST HUMAN ever—
    is all about her and how much she can fuck this family over—-

  21. d says:

    My bet is he paid her off and dumped her. The end. I know I shouldn’t, but “sugart_ts” always makes me laugh. I don’t know why it’s funny to me, but it is.

  22. Jazz says:

    Robyn would never take his crazy old ass back!

  23. snapdragon says:

    she looks insane.

  24. CYANN says:

    The shape of her face turns me off. She would be cute otherwise…

  25. Jeri says:

    She sounds pissed. Is she threatening Mel?? That might not be wise.

  26. Uzi says:

    Anyone who’s read Oksana’s other interviews knows that she’s delusional and possibly crazier than Mel. After all, she truly believes that she has a legitimate music career. Of course she’s “cryptic and bizarre;” that’s the world according to Oksana. The press release about their split was pure PR spin, especially the part about them dating for a year (Do the math: she got pregnant before they became a couple?) Also, if the two of them are raising the baby together, why is the baby with Oksana’s mother instead of Mel? There’s definitely much more to the story. Either Oksana’s giving an exclusive interview to a media outlet, or she’s playing some sort of mind game with Mel (threat of legal action perhaps?)

  27. Eye Opener says:

    Cue JT’s song: “What goes around comes around”…..

    She probably got smacked around and cussed out every day!

    She didn’t look happy AT ALL from her first pictures coming out of his trailer a few years back – and she never EVER did after she purposefully got knocked up!!

    He don’t want her OR the kid!

    Have fun on the curb, homewrecker! But hey, you can always go check John Edwards for a place to live too.

  28. snappyfish says:

    why would the wife want that sack of crazy back? I’d take the 1/2 billion dollars and have a nice life.

    My guess is little Miss Hammer & Sickle wouldn’t sign a pre-nup. Just like she wouldn’t sign one with Timothy Dalton.

    Why sign a pre-nup when you get 18 years of alimony?

  29. CathyT says:

    The baby isn’t with Mel because he is out of the county filming “How I Spent My Summer Vacation.”

    Judging by the video of Oksana at the press conference, she looked like she was having the time of her life in the spotlight. No heartbreak was on display about her breakup with Mel. The timing of the press conference was just perfect.

  30. j. ferber says:

    Mel has been screwing around on his wife for years. This time he hooked up with a woman with an agenda. Someone goal-oriented. Not any of this sleeping-with-his-co-stars bullshit. Serves him right.

  31. susieqinBA says:

    If child support isn’t enough (that’s probably why they “drifted apart” and she’s upset because she got dumped, friendly of course, without getting what SHE wanted) for her she could probably get a job working as a sex toy (errr, I’m sorry administrative assistant) for Steven Segal, taking his shoes off or something???? I think he’s already got two Russian ladies working for him.

  32. Uzi says:

    @Cathy T…Remember that Mel always liked to have Robyn and the kids with him while filming on location, so I think if he really wanted to be with the baby she’d be in Mexico with a nanny. I wonder why Oksana didn’t bring her to Russia; you’d think she’d want to show her off to her friends and relatives. I agree with you about the press conference. Oksana is thrilled to be the center of attention and once again shine the spotlight on her “music.” I’m afraid we’re going to be stuck with her and her ego for a while!

  33. Debbie says:

    Karma is a bitch,

    She is nothing but a slapper, whore ,slut, she planned this all along.

    Mel finally saw the light, She doesn’t seem upset nor sad about it, Why should she, 18 years of child support. As for parting as friends and raising the baby together, all I can say is bullshit, That’s PR propaganda, nothing more, nothing less.

    If The baby is Mel’s, He’ll pay the minimum child support. Don’t get me wrong if the baby is his she will want for nothing, but as for the relationship parting on friendly terms, I have never heard such crap in all my life.

    My mind is boggling at the moment to as her saying you will hear the truth soon?
    I too every-time I hear sugar tits crack up, I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall when they had the fight. Man alive what a scoop that would be.

    But then again if you go right from the start of this Mel has NEVER looked happy, even when they were pictured together it just didn’t seem right.

    Any way may be this nasty experience will keep Mad Max zipped up for quiet a while, Let6s hope so any way,


  34. CathyT says:

    @Uzi..that would be pretty rough on a 5 month old baby. It also may be tramatic for Lucia to be without her mother while Oksana visits Russia. I don’t think a mother should cart an infant out of the country or leave the baby for days unless absolutely necessary. Mel appears to be with his three oldest sons in Mexico now.

  35. Debbie says:

    I’ve been watching some clips of the couple on you tube, The restaurant bust up,
    Mel looks so pissed of and Oskana looks as if she’s nearly shiting herself when she gets in to the car, some one duly noted was that the DNA results he had there in his hand, I mean if looks could kill, They say he received the results in November some time.

    There is also some claims that the baby could be on of his older sons. Maybe barking up the wrong tree there but something never had added up here, It’s all very strange to say the least, and I do feel sorry for the little baby being let loose with The stupid Grandmother, Poor kid, Any I guess time will tell.


  36. Whatever says:

    Her actions have always seemed calculated to me. She “accidentally” got pregnant and tried to sink her claws in. I agree with the comment that her response seems like a threat. In other words, if Mel doesn’t fork over a lot of money, she’ll sell her story to the highest bidder.

  37. Uzi says:

    @Debbie…I think that if the DNA test showed that Mel wasn’t the father he’d have dumped Oksana a long time ago and made a public announcement denying paternity. Most likely the November “papers” were some sort of legal agreement concerning child and baby mama support. Based on his past history with his side piece women I’m sure Mel made Oksana sign a confidentiality agreement in exchange for a lump sum payout or monthy stipend. He’s obviously supporting Oksana’s mother too.

  38. susieqinBA says:

    I don’t think any of Mel’s sons would be the father to the baby, it just doesn’t make sense; I don’t think he would have been seen with the woman if that was true (maybe he’s been with his son’s GF). I think she might be trying to use something he’s confided in her about that he’s done or been involved in against him; and telling the truth that he’s NOT the “doting” father he wants people to believe.

  39. Aurora27 says:

    We know Mel’s lost it. Oksana is apparently nutty. But what the hell was wrong with Tim Dalton?!! He’s always struck me as fairly level-headed, and he was with this woman for how many years? How does one go from Vanessa Redgrave to Oksana?

    I feel sorry for her children. Especially, her pre-teen son, who has to be mortified by this.

    I do agree with other posters who long for the pre-whackjob/bigot Mel of the 80s and 90s.

  40. Lyon says:

    “There is also some claims that the baby could be on of his older sons.”

    Absolutely false. The person that was ranting on and on about Oksana sleeping with Mel’s sons (amongst other claims) is a lunatic.

  41. not says:

    They both are wearing each others necklaces,they have not broken up.It’s all publicity for her charity.

  42. Debbie says:

    Well according to other reports Mel hasn’t had much do do with Her since after the birth, According to various sources The pic’s at the premiere were purely a PR stunt. I also watched Mel walking the red carpet at his movie in Spain She was no were to be seen,

    He walked the carpet alone answering questions

    I saw the clip of him and his 3 sons He Looks a bit like the Mel Of Old, Not so stressed, more relaxed,


  43. Sincerity says:


    If I’m not mistaken, just before the baby was born, there was some indication that Mel Gibson did not plan to stick around indefinitely after the child was born. If so, he’s been planning this split for quite some time and his obviously sigh of relief is not surprising. I could imagine that Oksana tried her best to keep him interested but to no avail. She does not seem to have a very good “track record” of ending relationships well. Hopefully, she’ll just move on and let this family heal. She never had their “buy-in” from the the beginning and without it, the relationship was simply doomed!

  44. Uzi says:

    Oksana’s “cryptic and bizarre” comments aren’t about the actual split, they’re about the REASON for the split. Maybe it’s very simple: this past year was the wakeup call Mel’s been needing for so long. He destroyed his 30 year marriage, hurt and embarrassed his family, made a mockery of his Catholic faith and ruined what was left of his already tarnished image. His “comeback” film received a lukewarm response and his “new woman” and her make believe music career got a huge “thumbs down” from the public. Maybe Mel has finally decided to sober up and straighten out his life, and a major part of that is giving Oksana the boot. According to TMZ the Gibson divorce is close to being finalized, and after it is (the “soon” to which Oksana refers), he’ll do some sort of interview to announce and debut “the new Mel.” Let’s hope that happens…

  45. Lyon says:

    Uzi, I’d like to co-sign that, lol.

  46. linda k says:

    who knows what the reason is…could be they are playing the absence makes the heart fonder…you know he always needs a woman…it will be her or another, the destruction has already been done on his character, we have already been duped, it will be interesting to see what he comes up with it…it will be a new mel sans family…his past is gone, he can be single, see who he wants, etc..

  47. linda k says:

    you have to admit though,,,she does look pretty good in the new photos…younger…

  48. Debbie says:

    I don’t think so Linda.

    It’s over, The damage has been done If you look at Mel’s behavior since being lumbered with her and the baby he has always seemed on edge, Felt uncomfortable on the red carpet with her.

    As I said earlier when it was discussed about his attitude to some media interviews and being wound up I mentioned the main problem was the so called relationship with her. Going back to the times he was in public with her while she was due to have the Baby, The so called romantic lunch, What romantic lunch, he hardly even looked at her he was talking to a guy she was there as an after thought,

    The bust up at the restaurant, He was pretty pissed off. And she was nearly shitting herself when she got into the car.

    And the so called lunch in NY just before the baby was born, he seemed so uncomfortable with her in those pics, something never has and seemed to add up there, and finally going back to when the baby arrived, her suddenly saying she hoped to marry Mel, giving countless interviews and selling pic’s of the baby to the media. This was after she had said they never discussed marriage.

    As I said mo marriage is perfect, You don’t have 7 kids with someone and stay together with them for 30 years. They must of had some bond between them.
    Robyn gave him space when he needed it, was there when he needed her. This piece of works wanted to marry him, and according to some sources even wanted to have a say in some financial matters. Wanting to know why the divorce wasn’t through yet,How much money apparently was going to Robyn,

    So As I said before I still maintain Mel never though in a million years he would ruin his marriage, May be they would have gotten back together, The strange thing was When the divorce papers were signed Mel and Robyn gave the same address, So they may have been separated but still living at the same property. He maybe thought he could still carry on have his one night stands, flings BUT he never counted on such a manipulative Woman to fall pregnant so quickly.

    I’m sure he will take responsibility for the care of his new baby, but I think to an extent there will be problems coming from her side. She was never the stay at home type to look after the baby, Still self absorbed in her non existent music career


  49. Regina says:

    Ah… in hindsight, she sounded like making a threat. Was she referring to releasing her edited recordings of his rants. (unless he pays up)
    I wonder if in this visit to Russia, she gave her sister copies of the recordings. They might have even edited them together. Giggling toghether, two poor little Ukrainian girls making it to the big time with Mel’s money.

  50. Regina says:

    oh and she always points that they were together three years. It’s a lot less than that. I’d say just before she got pregnant.
