The Russian Hottie Who Says She's Mel Gibson's Mistress

Mel Gibson has his own $42 million ultra-traditionalist Catholic church near Malibu. And the "other women" behind his divorce? Well, the tabloids are still sifting through at least four ladies on three continents.

So far, the front-runner among his purported mistresses is Russian pop singer Oksana Pochepa, who has been telling the press she's in a "serious" thing with the movie star. From The Sun:

We are different people, but Mel is a grown man and knows precisely what he wants and me too - I know what I want.

There's also some unidentified brunette in Costa Rica Gibson was spotted hugging on the beach. The Mail reports that Gibson's womanizing began spiraling out of control after he filmed Apocalypto in Mexico more than two years ago and was drinking heavily in Veracruz. The tabloid added that his wife, who Gibson once told the New Yorker was "a much better person than I am," got tired of setting him straight.

Maybe Gibson's congregation can pick up the slack. Its members would probably like some sort of explanation for his behavior, too. Especially the ones set to live in the houses his construction company is building "inside the walled grounds."
