OKSANA GRIGORIEVA, the former girlfriend of Mel Gibson, is set to open up about her tumultuous relationship with the actor on The Oprah Winfrey show, according to US Magazine. It is reported that the Russian singer and pianist will speak about recent controversies in a face-to-face interview with the queen of daytime television.
A rep for Winfrey's production company, Harpo, is yet to make an announcement, but RadarOnline report that Grigorieva has decided to give an interview to Oprah, despite having a solid offer from the show '60 Minutes'. Among the topics expected to be discussed will be her marriage to the actor Timothy Dalton, and her volatile relationship with MEL GIBSON. In June 2010, an eight-minute recording of a phone conversation between Gibson and Grigorieva surfaced, with the Hollywood actor heard to be in an aggressive rage. The recording led to a series of other allegations being made, including domestic violence, and the pair are currently in the middle of a child custody battle.
Last week, the actress Jodie Foster came to the defence of her friend Gibson, telling More Magazine, "When you love a friend, you don't abandon them when they are struggling. But more importantly, he is and has been a true and loyal friend. I hope I can help him get through this dark moment"
