Singer/songwriter Oksana Grigorieva is speaking out for the first time since her relationship with Mel Gibson became public in April.
The two are expecting their first child together this fall — Grigorieva’s second child and Gibson’s eighth. The divorcing screen star recently announced his pending divorce from wife of 28 years, Robin Gibson.
In an interview with CNN on Tuesday, the 39-year-old musician calls the Lethal Weapon star an “incredible artist” and “a visionary.” Mel directed four of Oskana’s music videos, and she credits him with giving her the courage to record an album.
“They’re like dramatic miniature films,” she said. “If you think about it, every talent needs a serious push and help from somebody who is stronger, because it’s pretty much impossible for anybody to succeed in this industry.”
