Mel Gibson, 53, and his new girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, 39, appeared together for the first time at the Los Angeles premiere of ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’.
Gibson is not a man to waste any time. Only in the last few weeks has his estranged wife filed for divorce from the actor on the grounds of “irreconcilable differences”, and the mega-rich movie star has already bounced back.
I had one thought and one thought only while reading about this pair in the newspaper on my way home today. Looking through pictures of Grigorieva and making note of the age difference I found myself hoping one thing “Man, I hope this woman’s box and the mysteries held within are worth half a billion dollars”.
There is a lot in this relationship for Grigorieva. She is a former model and the publicity cannot do any real damage to revive her career, if that is what she would like. As for her current aspirations, I hear she also sings, and is signed to Gibson’s recording label Icon.
As for Gibson and what he gets out of this… who knows.
So far as I can see he gets a new thang on his arm and the world’s most expensive cooter. I damn sure hope this is love for real and all joking aside that the parting of a 28-year-marriage and family is worth it.
