On the night before his ex Oksana Grigorieva goes on national TV to dish the dirt on their rocky relationship, a casual looking Mel Gibson stepped out in Hollywood to attend a 20th birthday party for his son Milo, and RadarOnline.com has the new photo of the controversial Mad Max star.
The Oscar winning director/actor joined in the celebration at Musso and Franks restaurant in Hollywood Tuesday night, before the party moved to Premiere nightclub in nearby West Hollywood.
Gibson has seven children with ex-wife Robyn (Hannah, twins Edward & Christian, William, Louis, Milo, and Thomas ) and an eighth child, one-year-old Lucia with former love Oksana.

During the interview – which was taped over this weekend – Oksana admits that staying with Gibson for as long as she did “was a mistake.”
Oksana – who claims Gibson was both verbally and physically abusive towards her – told King: “I stayed a little bit too long. But, again, I immediately left…”
She also recounted the emotional moment he asked her to take him back. “I gave him the last chance. He asked me for the last chance. He begged. He cried. He cried on his knees. What am I supposed to do?” she told King.

“I wanted my mother to be able to prove that if I’m dead that this is who did it…”
