Mel Gibson's 'Russian lover Oksana Grigorieva pregnant and moving in'
April 26, 2009 07:19am
IT'S been revealed that Mel Gibson's wife finally sued for divorce after hearing his Russian lover say she's pregnant.
British newspaper The Sun says Robyn, 53, a former Adelaide dental nurse who has seven children with Gibson, ended their 28-year marriage after Oksana Grigorieva told friends she was pregnant.
She was also horrified to find the Braveheart star had moved the stunning 39-year-old and her son, 11, into one of his mansions in California.
A source told the paper that Robyn put up with the New York-born, Australian-raised Oscar winner for years but when she found out Oksana was telling friends she's pregnant it was the last straw.
The paper says Robyn wants a quickie divorce, one that isn't contested, with their assets divided later.
Robyn filed for divorce on April 13, saying they had been secretly separated since August 2006, weeks after the star's arrest for drink-driving.
The Sun says Oksana was spotted outside Gibson's mansion on Friday chatting on her mobile phone with what appeared to be a baby bump under her pink shirt.
Last month the pair were spotted frolicking on a beach in Costa Rica.
Gibson stands to lose half of his estimated $1 billion fortune in the divorce.
His spokesman refused to comment, the paper says.
Well we know Mel is as fertile as a stud bull and it may be true but I will take a wait and see attitude. BTW how can such a devout, extremist Catholic take the view that taking lovers is okay let alone while married and how can he justify his excesses when also spruiking the word of God? He's making it up as he goes along, methinks!
Another Celebrity (sort of) scandal/beatup isChris and Jana Rawlinson spilt: Canberra home on the market for $1 million

JANA Rawlinson has put a $1 million price tag on the chic Canberra home unit she is seeking to unload after her split with husband Chris Rawlinson.
While their separation became public only last week, The Sunday Telegraph has learned that the couple's home has been on the market for more than a month.
The upmarket three-bedroom unit - part of a new five-star complex in Barton, in the shadow of Parliament House - is being offered by LJ Hooker for more than $1 million.
Rawlinson has moved back in with her parents in Sydney, originally bringing her son, Cornelius, with her, but lately he has been staying with his father in Canberra. Those close to the couple said the marriage could yet be reconcilable.
"They might be back together next week - that's Jana and Chris," one source said. "The fact they've been blueing - that's not a new thing.
As Rawlinson's marriage is tested, Athletics Australia is lending support to try and salvage her historic world championship defence in August.
Rawlinson has the chance to become the first Australian to win three consecutive world titles.
But she is running out of time to be fit for the world championships in Berlin, on August 15.
High performance manager for Athletics Australia, Eric Hollingsworth, has been helping Rawlinson to track down a new permanent coach. She's expected to return to the Australian Institute of Sport under a new mentor.
Rawlinson ran in only one race last year and withdrew from the Beijing Games because of injury. She has not raced this year because of a calf problem. Hollingsworth said Rawlinson would probably need to head to Europe for racing by June.
"We're not going to put Jana in the World Championships, unless she's at Jana performance level," he said.
"At the end of the day, Jana's super-talented, so the normal rules are a little different for her than
for other athletes. As long as she gets some solid training in from now on, she'll be okay." http://www.news.com.au/entertainment/story/0,28383,25387463-5013560,00.html
Can anyone tell me why couples fight, make life miserable for one another and their offspring, seem to despise one another and reconcile only to do it all over again, repeatedly?
My second marriage lasted 19+ years and we never had a 'fight' and he hated that I would not argue with him. My philosophy is... 'why fight when you know you're right?'
