Singer Denies Reports Of Gibson Affair

Russian singer OKSANA KOLESNIKOVA has spoken out to deny rumours she had an affair with Hollywood actor MEL GIBSON and ended his 28-year marriage.
Gibson's wife Robyn filed for divorce on Monday (13Feb09), citing "irreconcilable differences".
Internet rumours have since suggested Gibson's close relationship with Russian musician Kolesnikova was behind the break-up.
But Kolesnikova vehemently denies the claims - insisting she has only ever enjoyed a professional relationship with the movie star.
A representative for the singer tells, "Sorry to hear about Mel Gibson's divorce. Somehow Oksana is being linked to Mr. Gibson's (sic), but there are no emotional ties between the two that I am aware of.
"Oksana has in the past entertained Mr. Gibson with her piano music as he dined at the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel. I definitely welcome the opportunity to set the record straight. Our Oksana is not romantically involved with Mr. Gibson."
The Gibsons wed in 1980 and have seven children. According to legal papers, Robyn is seeking joint physical and legal custody of the couple's youngest son, Tom. She is also asking for spousal support and attorney's fees.
