Actor Mel Gibson's relationship with singer Oksana Grigorieva has hit the rough patch. They are said to have split and are staying separately just five months after their daughter was born. The celebrity couple had hit the headlines after the Braveheart star's wife Robyn had filed for divorce last year.
It is said despite having a baby together, they have maintained separate homes. Sources claim that Mel Gibson is staying at his family compound in Malibu and Grigorieva at a home in Sherman Oaks, a suburb of Los Angeles. The reason for their break up is that they both are working hard on their careers.
"They just drifted apart. They"re both working hard on their careers and trying to raise a sweet baby together. They're still friends and they'll both raise Lucia together," the Daily Mail reports sources as saying.
However, the news of their break up comes almost one year to the day when Robyn filed for divorce. Robyn is a former dental nurse and she has seven older children (six sons and a daughter) with Gibson. Last year, she had filed for divorce after learning that her husband was expecting a baby with the Oksana.
Presently, Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigoriev are busy with their upcoming projects. The actor is filming his latest film How I Spent My Summer Vacation in Mexico. And his girlfriend has been to her native Russia to sing in a charity concert next week to raise money for children with cancer.
