Can Gradle consume maven version ranges in parent pom declarations? Ask

I am using Gradle to fetch a jar from a nexus maven repository.

In the location that I specify, there is a pom that refers to a parent, but the problem is inside that pom there is a reference to multiple versions when referring to the parent, a version range, which Gradle cannot seem to understand/find. [5,6)

[Could not parse POM, could not find parent.

I have tried [] and various intervals and plugins within build.gradle, but if Gradle cannot do this then it might be time for me to switch to maven.
