London: The woman supposedly carrying Mel Gibson’s unborn child after an alleged fling, has set the record straight on the rumour.

Laura Bellizzi has spoken to TMZ and stated clearly that Mel Gibson is not the father of her child.

Bellizzi, mother-of-two and businesswoman, also conveyed through her representative that any alleged ‘friends’ telling gossip outlets that she’s been privately identifying Gibson as her baby’s daddy are being 100 per cent dishonest in a misguided effort to seek five seconds of notoriety and fame.

The statement said that she is ‘greatly dismayed at the rash of intrusive and irresponsible stories about her pregnancy.’

Though she admitted knowing the actor, she refused to be drawn on the nature of the relationship they shared.

Gibson’s representative had dismissed the reports as ‘complete and utter rubbish, 100 per cent untrue,’ last week.

Friends had alleged that Bellizzi did not want the news to go public yet was telling her friends ‘that the Braveheart actor is the father of her unborn baby.’

According to Star magazine, Bellizzi, who is based in Orange County, California and appeared on VH-1 reality show ‘Secrets of Aspen’ last year, is more than four months pregnant.

Gibson has already fathered eight children - seven by his ex wife Robyn - with one daughter Lucia, by former girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva with whom he split last April.
