Red Carpet Shocker as Mad Mel Walks Hand-in-Hand with Girlfriend, Oksana
Mel Gibson made a red carpet appearance last night at the screening of X-Men Origins: Wolverine at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. His escort for the evening was girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, the 39-year-old Russian singer signed to his record label, Icon Records. The couple ignited flashbulbs as they held hands while walking the carpet before taking a seat at the movie screening. “They came in quietly and as under-the-radar as they could and they were pretty low-key,” says a source. “Mel seemed very comfortable.”
The appearance could be a public relations attempt at smoothing over the backlash surrounding Mel and Oksana’s relationship, which has been under a microscope since Mel’s separation from his wife of 28 years, Robyn. Now that Gibson has been seen in public holding hands with Gregory, there is no question about where his feelings are, and which Osama is the real girlfriend. Mel’s rep even told People Magazine, “Mel has been single for almost three years and it’s nice to see him getting out and enjoying himself”.
Sean Penn Files for Legal Separation from Wife, Robin
Sean Penn has filed for “legal separation with minor children” from his wife of 13 years, actress Robin Wright Penn. Penn, 48, initially filed for divorce in December 2007, followed three days later by Wright Penn, 43, who filed her own paperwork. But the couple worked things out and in April 2008 their divorce petition was dismissed at their request. The couple has two children, Dylan, 18, and Hopper Jack, 15
Rumors of a marital rift started after Sean Penn didn’t thank his wife while accepting his second Best Actor Oscar for his role as gay rights activist Harvey Milk. Later he told Oprah Winfrey about his acceptance speech, “I wanted to keep things focused on the professional team around this movie”.
