Lyudmila Chernukha, a retired Russian music teacher whose daughter Oksana Grigorieva is dating Mel Gibson, denies Grigorieva broke up the actor’s marriage, but remains mum on rumours the pair are expecting a child, people.com reports.
“I can’t say anything,” Chernukha, speaking in Russian, told People exclusively from her home outside of Moscow. “Wait for the official statement from them.”
Chernukha said Grigorieva — a singer signed to Gibson’s record label — started seeing him well after the actor and his wife separated, which the mother says happened in 2006.
“He split up with his wife three years ago, so to suggest that she has broken up their marriage is rubbish,” she says. “He was no longer with his wife so he was bound to meet some woman at some point, it just happened to be Oksana.”
