And so … we may now know exactly why Mel Gibson‘s wife Robyn decided to file for divorce last month after about 29 years of marriage. According to a new report from TMZ, Mel‘s mistress Oksana Grigorieva (whom he took to the very public LA screening of X-Men Origins: Wolverine last month) is pregnant with his child. Uhhhh … yeah, I think that’s a pretty good reason for a wife to file from divorce from her skeevy husband:
We’ve learned Mel Gibson’s girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva, is pregnant with his child. Our sources say Gibson has already told his estranged wife, Robyn, and their children about the news. We’re told Oksana is in her second trimester. Robyn filed for divorce on April 13. By the way, Oksana is living in a house Mel got for her. And guess what else? Until recently, Oksana was living in a house purchased by songwriter/producer David Foster, with whom she also had a relationship.
Wait … wasn’t Mel Gibson spouting all this religiousness biz back when he was promoting his film The Passion of the Christ? Yeah, that talk kinda fell by the wayside when he got arrested for drunk driving back in the Summer of 2006 … but he has since kept his nose out of trubs — well, until this mess came out. If true, I hope his wife Robyn is able to take him for all he’s worth in divorce court. It’s bad enough that he, apparently, cheated on his wife but to father a lovechild in the process? That’s pretty low. I certainly would not look to Mel Gibson‘s moral compass if I were lookin’ for someone to emulate. I do hope the old adage that cheaters never prosper holds true in this case. What a totally crappy situation for the still-current Mrs. Gibson.
