Mel Gibson's ex-girlfriend insists the pair will continue to be doting parents to their daughter despite their recent split.
Oksana Grigorieva and the 'Mad Max' star - who have a five-month-old girl, Lucia, together - announced their relationship was over last week and while no details about the break-up have emerged the Russian musician has promised the real reason will soon be revealed.
She said: "I can tell you that we have split up, suddenly and recently. Unfortunately, I cannot give you the reason. But you will find out everything quite soon.
"Here is the official version - we split up by mutual consent and we will raise our daughter together. She is currently with my mother in my Los Angeles home."
Despite initial reports insisting they are still on good terms, it was recently claimed 54-year-old Mel ended their relationship following a huge row.
According to National Enquirer magazine, 40-year-old Oksana accused her partner of "cheating" and "lashed out" over his reluctance to marry.
A source said: "After the row Mel told Oksana it was over."
Mel has previously admitted he didn't intend to marry the brunette beauty.
He said recently: "She'd make anyone a wonderful wife, but for the moment, she's a mother."
Mel has seven children with estranged wife Robyn, who filed for divorce last May.
Following the legal proceedings, it emerged the couple had been separated for some time and the actor was in a relationship with Oksana, who has 12-year-old son Alexander with ex-boyfriend Timothy Dalton.
