Mel Gibson Confirms That His Mistress Is Pregs With His Child


Last week we learned from a report from TMZ that Mel Gibson’s mistress, Oksana Grigorieva (whom he recently started up a romantic relationship with while he was still married to his wife of 29 years Robyn) is pregs with his child … which resulted in Robyn filing for divorce. Mel appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night and confirmed to Jay that his girlfriend is pregs with his child, joking that he can now be called “Octo-Mel” since his mistress will be giving birth to his 8th child — classy, classy guy:

It’s official: Mel Gibson’s girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva, is pregnant. The actor confirmed the news during a taping of NBC’s The Tonight Show With Jay Leno to air [last night]. “I guess I’m ‘Octo-Mel,'” says Gibson, who already has seven kids with his wife of 28 years, Robyn. Robyn filed for divorce six weeks ago amidst speculation that Grigorieva, a singer on Gibson’s record label, was expecting a child. “My wife and I, our marriage ended three years ago and we’ve been separated ever since then,” Gibson tells Leno. “These things happen. It’s unfortunate, it’s sad, but you know she is an admirable woman — we still got kids together, we’re friends.” “Look,” Gibson continues. “When it’s all said and done, I did a pretty good hatchet job on my marriage myself. I’m to blame. If you’re inclined to judge, put it here.” Gibson also says his separation from Robyn had nothing to do with Grigorieva, whom he didn’t meet until 2008. When asked by Leno if they would wed, Gibson says: “Why would you get married twice?” According to reports, Grigorieva is in her second trimester and due this fall.

As a result of Mel’s confirmation on national television last night, his official rep issued a statement that was released in between the show’s taping (yesterday afternoon) and the show’s airing (late last night):

Six weeks after his wife Robyn filed for divorce after 28 years of marriage, Mel Gibson has some news of his own: his Russian musician girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, 39, is pregnant, the actor’s rep confirms exclusively to PEOPLE. “He couldn’t be happier,” says a Gibson friend. “He loves being a father.” Grigorieva, who is signed to Gibson’s record label, Icon Records, is in her second trimester and due in the late fall. For those eager to point to Grigorieva’s pregnancy as a catalyst for Gibson’s divorce, they’ll be wrong, says the close source: “This has nothing to do with the divorce. Mel didn’t even know Oksana was pregnant when they filed.”

Ha! Right! There really ain’t much damage control that can be done at this point so I guess saying that Mel didn’t even know his mistress was pregnant when his wife filed for divorce is all they could come up with. You know, even if you buy that “we’ve been separated for 3 years” line he’s trying to feed us, it’s pretty disrespectful to sleep around ON YOUR WIFE and the mother of your 7 children while you’re still married to her. WWJD? The hypocrisy of Gibson’s religiousness just grosses me out to no end. His pious bullshizz turned me off to him years ago, this just seals the deal and shows the man’s true colors, IMHO. I wish Ms. Grigorieva all the luck in the world … I hope that Mel Gibson doesn’t eff her and her baby over in the same way he effed over his wife.

    I agree with ya 100%. Claps for Mel.

  • Madsme

    Me too – well done calling his religious tirades for what they are: bullshit.

  • JJ

    Ugh, I completely agree. And like him cheating on his wife isn’t bad enough but then to make tasteless jokes about it? I get that we’re all human and we all make mistakes but being a Chrisitian myself, I think if you’re going to call youself a Christian (especially being a public figure like he is and making a movie like the Passion of the Christ) you need to live by the morals you preach at for other people not make jokes about cheating on your wife of 28 years. And if it doesn’t bother him as a Christian it should at the very least bother him as a father.

  • Amy

    Aren’t there schools in Russia where you can go to learn how to golddig? I’m sure getting knocked up has got to be at top of the list.

  • Zsofi

    I think the only reason why his new girlfriends gives birth to his baby is his MONEY.

  • kristin

    Incredibly tacky. He certainly has a high opinion of himself to think he can just go on Leno, make a couple of insensitive jokes and be loved by the public once again.

  • SMD

    Seriously…who cares! They were separated for a long time…maybe not the entire three years…but they were separtated… that means not together. Leave the man alone… It is what it is!!

  • Jadedkitten

    They were separated for 3 years? srsly 3 years if you’re separated from someone for 3 years your relationship is over and you’re free do do whatever and whoever you want.

    • @Jadedkitten — separation does not equal divorce. divorce equals divorce. three years is enough time, I think, to get divorced.

  • Anna

    I completely agree Mel is just gross and he apparently has thrown all his convictions overboard. I guess he’ll just do confession and be ok again…..

  • canuckistani

    Wow Trent, it’s not often you rant about someone. You’re usually pretty non-judgemental, but I get the impression Gibson’s religious stance gets under your skin and wonder why it runs so deep in you.

  • Luv Ya

    Agree with canuckistani. This is not the typical Trent. Some people just rub ya the wrong way, I guess. There’s Hollywood phoniness which is PR driven and all that. But then there’s bone deep phoniness, and when it’s combined with self righteousness, it gets even guys like Trent riled up. As for the three year separation. It was only announced AFTER the fact and the wifey and him couldn’t even agree upon the date it supposedly happened. Moving into a love nest is not a legal separation, Mel.

  • heather

    Actually… while it’s true that separation is not divorce, it’s also way different than married. Many people separate and decide that things are indeed ‘over’, but don’t bother with a full and official divorce because it’s a big hassle, costs a lot of money, lot of paperwork, etc etc.

    A legal separation (which involves lawyers and paperwork too) is considered different than married. Not quite divorced, but not married either. Many people don’t do the full divorce until it’s absolutely necessary– say, if you’re getting remarried.

    My ex-husband and I separated in 2001. We couldn’t afford a full divorce at the time. Then I was with my second husband for several years before we married, and indeed we were legally “common-law married” even though I was “only” separated from my first husband. I was no bigamist, and I was not cheating on him. That’s just how it works.

    When we decided to get fully married, I filed for the full divorce from my first husband. It was a technicality by that point.

    Now I don’t know if Mel’s separation from his wife was of the “legal” type, or just a mutual personal thing. And I also won’t say his behaviour isn’t skeevy and hypocritical. But if indeed he had a legal separation, then he never was cheating on his wife. I’ll agree with you on almost everything else in this situation, but not on that.

  • Z

    I get the impression he was trying to be a “Good Catholic” and stay married, even if it was in name only, but then when the girlfriend got pregnant, the wife decided to put an end the charade. I agree w/ Trent that behavior like this from someone who acts so holier-than-thou is really obnoxious.

  • I agree too!! Mel is gross!! I cannot stand people like him they make me sick! Just to think I thought he was so hot in Lethal Weapon YELK!! Gag me with a spoon!

  • Kat

    @Heather – I’m really positive that if you’re legally married to someone else, you cannot be “common-law married”. You may gain legal rights to property for co-habiting…

    @Trent – little strong reaction, definity the false piety getting the better of you — but isn’t part of it about that racist rant he did when he was drunk? I know I was really disappointed to hear what he really thinks…

    Who knows if the mistress is an opportunist… or what…

    But we definately learned that Mel was no christian a long time ago…

  • Grace

    I’m in the same boat as you. Mel Gibson is a joke and to go on National television and make this mess even more public than it already is is disrespectful, not only to his soon to be ex-wife who I think is lucky to finally be free of this moron, but to his kids who have to be old enough to read what is going on and to watch their father act like a jackass.

    Heather, I am pretty sure Mel can afford a divorce and while paperwork is “annoying” why not just get it done with?

  • Kristin

    I agree that Gibson is a hypocrite, but who sleeps with a man known to be a father of 7 and married (even if separated) to a woman for twenty-something years? Hello….?? bad decision.

  • katt

    trent- i totally agree with you. doens’t matter seperated or not, if he was the catholic that he claims, they don’t believe in divorce. or cheating.
    i think mel is embarassed by his action, hence the Octo-mel joke……….
    still, disgusting

  • Ella

    Well I’m glad he at least said the break-up of his marriage is all his fault, but that was pretty obvious all along. He’s probably trying to look like a good guy. It’s true that many people decide their marriage is over and separate but don’t get the full divorce. What I find disgusting about Mel is the many affairs he had when they WERE married and most of all, the anti-Semitism (that is so obvious no matter how many excuses people try to come up with about that).
    But yeah, when someone who is such a prick tries to be likable, it’s pretty obnoxious.

  • Kara

    I really liked Mel’s enthusiasm when he made “The Passion”, as it was a very powerful and well-made film depicting events straight from The Gospels. But this whole debacle with his wife and pregnant mistress turns my stomach. I am Christian myself and it’s this kind of behavior that makes us look bad as a whole. C’mon, Mel, surely you have read your Bible enough to know that this ain’t right? Divorce is one thing, but then parading around your pregnant mistress is wrong on so many levels! I don’t care how long you’ve been “separated”.

    He’s a tacky, selfish jerk! He’s joined Tom Cruise on my list of “Used to be a hot box office magnet, now a creeper”.

  • Jadedkitten

    @ Trent that’s just a legal technicality if 2 people aren’t emotional or physically invest in a relationship for a years then your both free to do whatever you want.

    • @Jadedkitten — a legally binding contract is not a technicality. additionally, to a religious person, a vow before God even supersedes human law. Mel fails on both counts.

  • KellyK.

    I can truly see both sides. My brother just finalized his divorce that dragged on for almost 2 years. And both of them moved on to new relationships in the meantime. I do understand that things happen preventing it from being a speedy procedure. (Hell, in Michigan, couples can be required to take 6 months of marriage counselling before a judge will grant a divorce.) Be that as it may, it’s sad to see a person in this situation joking about it and taking for granted the very right that many loving and committed couples are denied. (for now…)

  • Elle O. Elle

    While it’s probably not the case here, I can see a former couple staying married in the legal sense only if there was some sort of benefit to it, such as health insurance.
    Also, it isn’t cheating if both parties agree to see other people, even if the couple is still very much in love and happy with each other. Again, that may not be the case in this situation.
    As far as him not knowing about the pregnancy until after his wife filed, it is possible, depending on how far along his girlfriend is. “Second trimester” can be anywhere between four months, where a woman might not be showing, to six, when she probably would. Also, it’s not unheard of for a woman to have her period during a pregnancy, and not have complications. I have an aunt who had periods up until the fifth month, if she hadn’t already known, the thought probably wouldn’t have crossed her mind. I had a pregnancy scare in November, and because of my aunt’s experience I was still taking tests until March. And if my partner hadn’t been at my side while I was puking my guts up, he wouldn’t have known, because I wouldn’t have told him unless I had decided to keep it.
    And that’s assuming she didn’t know, she might have known for awhile and didn’t tell him. Lots of people don’t tell until the second trimester, because there is a high chance of something going wrong during the first. I don’t believe that he didn’t know, but it’s not outside the realm of possibility.
    So, he IS a hypocrite, and probably a liar, but assuming he’s telling the truth about both, it doesn’t make him a bad guy. The bigotry and hypocrisy do.

    Good lord, sorry about the massive wall of text (and the double post), I assure everyone reading this that I put spaces in. ;)

  • J

    Trent you are just one eyed with have a narrow opinion of not just this Mel Gibson stuff but for these circumstances in general.

    Who cares if Mel Gibson is very religious etc. etc.. – maybe that was one of the reasons he & his wife chose not to actually file a divorce. They are both really religious as the other. And to deny the fact they have been separated for 3 years is absurd, if they said they have been separated for 3 years, they must have been, why lie about that?!

    I ain’t praising Mel Gibson, it’s is life, just like it’s your life to do what you want. He is happy obvioulsy with his girlfriend and becoming a father once again. So honor him for that happiness.

    We don’t know whats gone wrong with his relationship with his ex-wife, but don’t succumb to tabloids with our opinions. But wait, thats what you do Trent.

    For all we know Mel’s ex-wife has a boyfriend of her own. But we won’t know that because she isn’t FAMOUS!

    I salute you Mel Gibson, because obviously you & your girlfirend are in a happy relationship and shouldn’t have to deal with a Gold Digging ex-wife who is trying to steal half of your fortune (who yes, she has been there for before day one) but seriously don’t has to act like a White Trash Hoe to get it all.

    Even the most religious people are sinners. There is no minister or priest out there that can say they have not sinned. No one here knows if he as asked God for forgivness or how he has personally handled it. One major rule of christianity is to not judge others. Looks like most of you on here are no more Christians than Mel who you critisize so thoroughly.

  • Louisa

    I hope Mel is going to be OK in this relationship. One must remember that some Oriental mail brides and Russian women whether they are mail bride or not can be very predatory. They have been known to trap American men with pregnancy and anything else and Mel did say he did not know she was with child until after he filed for divorce. He did back her music video which certainly is great for her. Mel is a gold mine for this Russian lady. To be a celebrity and caught in this personal triangle is hard on everyone. I observe, though, that 39 really is too old to get ‘accidently’ pregnant. Other than that I wish everyone well and I know nothing else.
