Mel Gibson is dating singer Oksana Pochepa



Whatever could drive Mel Gibson away from his wife Robyn after seven kids and 28 years together? Try a 24-year-old Russian pop singer named Oksana Pochepa (and not pianist Oksana Kolesnikova, as some reports had said). That'd do it, all right.

Pochepa, who is known as the Russian Britney Spears (watch her video Utro Bez Tebya above), tells the UK's Sun that she started dating the 53-year-old after meeting him on the set of a movie in Boston last summer. And hey, they were built to last.

“This is serious and I hope that our union will be real and strong and long-lasting," she tells the paper. “We are different people, but Mel is a grown man and knows precisely what he wants and me too — I know what I want.”

You know what Robyn wants? A half-billion dollars. And thanks to this tartlet blabbing all over the press, a California divorce court will probably give it to her. But you know what's more important? The Juice* is just old enough to remember when Russian women were portrayed as hulking beasts who always needed to shave their faces, not the youthful lust objects the media often shows today.Truly, this is an age of progress!
