Mel Gibson: The Passion Is Kaput with Oksana

Share

Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva are kaput-ski. He said “das vidaniya ” to her.

Let’s see: she got an album recorded, paid for and released on a label invented just for her: Icon Records. Of course, it was just on ITunes. But the whole thing, including a song called “When It’s Over,” can be heard for free on www.oksana.fm. I wonder if Mel ever listened to the lyrics to these songs. “A girl’s gotta do, what she’s gotta do.” Indeed.

Oksana also got a baby. This is called insurance. Or an investment. Her other kid was fathered by ex James Bond Timothy Dalton. I mean, hats off to Oksana. And she’s not even 40.

The relationship cost Mel his marriage, and around $500 million to ex wife Robyn if her lawyer did a good job.

Mel and Oksana’s last public appearance, by the way, was at Hollywood Reporter ex publisher Eric Mika’s pre Oscar party at the mayor’s residence. Mayor Villiaragosa actually gave Mel an award, along with the Mexican Chamber of Commerce, for shooting a new movie in Mexico despite the protests of locals. Mel was there, looking disheveled and asleep, with Oksana. They left quickly.

So who’s the next artist on Icon Records?
