London: Mel Gibson`s former lover Oksana Grigorieva has declared that their relationship lasted much longer than previously thought - they were actually together for "three years".
The Lethal Weapon actor announced that he was with the Russian musician last year, shortly after Robyn, his wife of 30 years, filed for divorce.
The couple had a daughter Lucia, in October, but split up in April, and Grigorieva now insists they were actually together since 2006 - after Gibson and his wife legally separated.
"The truth always comes out. We`ve been together for three years - not one year as people have been writing. We were very much in love. He was the biggest love of my life and that`s what Mel always told me," The Daily Star quoted her as telling Hello! Magazine.
Grigorieva, however, refused to talk about the reasons for the split.
"The reasons I cannot talk about but it will come out at some point."
