After one year of dating that produced one child, Mel Gibson and girlfriend, Russian musician Oksana Grigorieva, have split up. This seems to be official news that all the big tabloids can agree on, despite reporting different versions of the how, when and why.
According to The National Enquirer, which first broke the news, Mel dumped Oksana after she confronted him over his increasing "indifference" toward her and their five-month-old daughter Lucia. When she angrily accused Mel of cheating and refusing to make an honest woman of her, the actor ended the relationship. Mel Gibson's Girl Hopeful of Marriage
However, People's sources say that the couple "just drifted apart," and still plan to raise Lucia together. The "amicable split" story is backed up by Us Weekly's source, who says: "No one dumped anyone. It’s all very friendly." The main difference in this version of events is that Mel and Oksana supposedly secretly split "months ago."
While we'd like to believe that some Hollywood couples still break up "just because," we're patiently waiting for Mel's mistress (or string of mistresses) to come forward. After all, Oksana herself was once the other woman. Mel Gibson's Other Woman Revealed
