As detectives launch a domestic violence investigation against Mel Gibson, the actor's rep wants fans to know that the troubled star, 54, has no plans to flee the country.

Over the weekend, reports swirled that Gisbon -- now engaged in an ugly custody war with ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva -- is heading to Australia, where he and his family moved when he was 12.

But his rep says "there’s no truth" to those reports.

Gibson is focusing on work, his rep says.

His rep confirms that the actor resumed shooting the Jodie Foster-directed comedy The Beaver in NYC "two weeks ago," after the July 1 release of his first expletive-ridden leaked tape and after he was dropped by his talent agency, William Morris Endeavor.

On Friday, a shot of a roughed-up Grigorieva, 40, hit the web. The photo was allegedly snapped after she got into a January fight with Gibson.

Despite rumors that Grigorieva may have doctored the photo, her rep says the disturbing pic is "true and accurate."
