ROSALIND ROSS’ CAREER

Before entering the entertainment industry, Ross was an equestrian who competed and won a gold medal at the World Equestrian Games in 2010.

Her success did not only lead to her being inducted into the AVA Hall of Fame but also attracted ESPN to cover her story and be featured in the 2011 ESPN magazine Body issue.

ROSS AND GIBSON’S LOVE STORY

Ross and Gibson met in 2014 while she was working in his production company, “Icon,” and they started dating shortly after.

The actor took a ten-year hiatus from Hollywood following her anti-Semitic verbal assault of a police officer in 2006.

The “Lethal Weapon” star was previously married to Robyn and was in a relationship with Oksana Grigorieva, whom he had a highly public and messy break up with because of his alleged abuse and alcoholism.

35-YEAR AGE GAP

Because of their decades-long age gap, many have talked about the couple, but Gibson has defended their relationship a few times. He once said:

“Regarding age and relationships, it’s just a number. We dig each other. She is an adult and we dig each other. It might cause a problem, and one has a trepidation about these things, but it’s working out great.”
