Grigorieva Set For Stage Return After Gibson Split
Singer OKSANA GRIGORIEVA has kept her promise to perform at a charity concert in her native Russia later this month (ends25Apr10), weeks after her highly-publicised split from actor Mel Gibson.
Gibson stirred controversy when he unveiled Grigorieva as his girlfriend shortly after his wife of 30 years filed for divorce last April (09) - but the new union was not meant to last.
The actor/director and Grigorieva reportedly ended their romance earlier this month (Apr10) - less than six months after Grigorieva gave birth to their first daughter, Lucia.
News of the split sparked reports Grigorieva's performance at a charity concert in Moscow would be cancelled, but Grigorieva has assured fans the show - to aid child victims of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster - will go on.
She says, "Children's pain hurts me too. I always wanted to help children through music."
