Mel Gibson may now be in a relationship with former model and aspiring musician Nadia Lanfranconi.
Mel Gibson, 56, appears to have found himself a new girlfriend. Much like his former girlfriend, Oksana Petrovna Grigorieva, Lanfranconi is also an aspiring singer and songwriter who is originally from Italy. In the past, Lanfranconi was part of an all-girl punk band.
"I spent my adolescence hanging out in the punk scene of my small town and learned to play music," the singer said on her webstie. "My first band was all girls, rock noise disaster but that's ok, we were 17 ... blue hair and violet clothes ... the dream of every parents!"
The singer has since matured, however, and last year modeled for an "F Me" jean brand. As of late she has also been "spending a lot of time" with actor Mel Gibson, according to TMZ.
Lanfranconi accompanied Gibson to The Grove in L.A. this past weekend. Gibson was seen giving Lanfranconi a public neck massage. The couple was also spotted at a sushi dinner earlier on this month.
In the past, Lanfranconi admitted that she has had a difficult time building friendships in her new Hollywood environment.
"I still shiver, when I think about my prior years, and how hard I had to work to overcome many obstacles," the singer said according to Mail Online. "Hollywood is a different place; it is an amazing place if you want to fulfil your dreams, if you work hard at it, but cold and calculated when it comes to friendships."
Despite the amount of time that they have been spending together, other sources insist that the relationship is more casual than serious. Gibson went through a difficult breakup in 2010 after his former girlfriend accused him of domestic abuse and filed a restraining order to prevent him from seeing his child.
