Mel Gibson's ex-girlfriend OKSANA GRIGORIEVA has confirmed reports the couple has split at a press conference in her native Russia.
The singer/songwriter was promoting an upcoming concert in Moscow on Monday (19Apr10) when she went public with the break-up news.
She told reporters, "I can tell you that... we have split up, suddenly and recently. Unfortunately, I cannot give you the reason. But you will find out everything quite soon.
"We split up by mutual consent and we will raise our daughter together. She is currently with my mother in my Los Angeles home."
The pianist gave birth to Gibson's daughter Lucia in October (09).
News of the split leaked to the press last week (ends16Apr10).
