Oscar-winning actor Mel Gibson made an eye-brow raising red carpet appearance with his Russian lover Oksana Grigorieva, just two weeks after his wife of 28-years filed for a divorce, People magazine reported.
The 53-year-old actor arrived with Oksana during the premiere of X-Men Origins: Wolverine in Los Angeles.
"Mel has been single for almost three years and it's nice to see him getting out and enjoying himself," actor's representative said.
The couple's appearance last night at the LA industry screening confirmed reports that his relationship with 39-year-old Oksana was the reason behind his wife Robyn's decision to file for divorce.
The Braveheart star, dressed in a black suit with a dark gray shirt, stepped out with Oksana, 39, who has been signed by his record label, Icon Records.
The couple held hands as they walked the red carpet before taking a seat inside the screening at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.
"They came in quietly and as under the radar as they could and they were pretty low-key," said a source adding, "Mel seemed very comfortable."
