Mel Gibson's pregnant girlfriend OKSANA GRIGORIEVA is tired of people branding her the "other woman" in the star's marriage - insisting she has no control over who she falls in love with.
The Lethal Weapon actor filed for divorce from his wife of 28 years, Robyn, in April (09), and announced a month later (May09) that he was expecting his eighth child with his musician lover.
But despite Gibson insisting he and his wife were separated for three years before they filed for divorce, Grigorieva is convinced she has been portrayed as the 'other women' who broke up the couple's lengthy marriage.
And the classical pianist, who is set to release her first album, has hit back at the media's representation of her - stating that she and Gibson had a "working relationship" for a long time.
She says, "It's not like I was planning to meet Mel specifically. Life happens.There was a working relationship for a long time.
"I thought he was happily married until I was reassured otherwise. And then it happened.
"We live in the same city. I don't control who I meet. I meet many people in art and music and film, but love is inexplicable."
Grigorieva, who is signed to Gibson's record label, already has a 12 year old son with Bond actor Timothy Dalton.
