Remember Violet Kowal? Mel Gibson's OTHER alleged mistress? No? Well, she wants to make sure she's not left out of the actor's recent saga - financially.
Kowal, a 39-year-old "fitness model" (some have referred to her as a porn actress) from Poland, has just retained the services of attorney Gloria Allred.
Back in May, we reported that Violet Kowal claimed she had an affair with Mel Gibson while Oksana Grigorieva was pregnant with their daughter Lucia.
If he were putting it to Violet while living with Oksana (while married to Robyn), that would add a new twist - if it's even true or he violated any laws.
It's unclear why Kowal needs legal representation at this point, but hey, it worked out for Rachel Uchitel fairly well. There's eight digits of motivation.
In case you haven't read any celebrity gossip for the past month or so, Mel and Oksana are engaged in a brutal legal and custody battle over Lucia.
The Mel Gibson tapes - in which he rants and berates her in the most foul way imaginable - and accusations of violence have dominated headlines.
Mel has personally been MIA lately and that's because he's on a family fishing trip with two of his sons, much to Oksana Grigorieva's consternation.
Oksana's laywers tried to schedule Gibson's deposition for the ongoing child custody battle in the middle of his trip. The court date has been delayed.
Her people think the delay is evidence that Mel is not committed to Lucia. TMZ reports Mel will be "front and center for his deposition in short order."
