Days after Mel Gibson's wife of 28 years, Robyn, filed for divorce, a 24-year-old Russian pop singer has come forth, claiming that she had a romantic relationship with the 53-year-old actor and has now fallen in love.
In a new interview in Britain's The Sun, Oksana Pochepa also confirms that she is the mystery brunette photographed kissing Gibson on a Costa Rican beach in March.
"This is serious and I hope that our union will be real and strong and long-lasting," she told the paper Tuesday.
"They would come out and attempt to walk around separately, but then at the end of the day, they both returned to the same hotel," the on-set source tells Us. "She was there on and off for a week, but it was clear she had no business there other than to be with Mel."
