Quick! Somebody call Maury! Mel Gibson has demanded that his pregnant girlfriend submit to a DNA test to determine if he is the father of their unborn baby. Insiders tell The National Enquirer that the actor “had no choice” but to demand a DNA test from Russian pop singer Oksana Grigorieva, 39, because the child will be one of eight heirs to the actor/director’s estimated $1 billion fortune.
In April, Robin Gibson filed for divorce from Mel after nearly 30 years of marriage.
The source adds six of Mel’s seven older children with his estranged wife — as well as other close family members — convinced the actor to request a paternity test. A source says: “Some members of Mel’s family believe Oksana is a gold digger. It’s hard for Mel to hear that. He says he’s agreed to the DNA test not for himself, but for his family.”
“Mel really loves Oksana, but he’s a businessman, too. He really had no choice but to ask for a DNA test,” an insider tells The National Enquirer. “Some of Mel’s closest friends in his church convinced him that it’s the practical thing to do. There’s just too much at stake.”
