Gibson's Rep Blasts Australia Move Reports
Mel Gibson's representative has dismissed reports the actor is planning to move back to Australia following his recent controversies with his ex-girlfriend.
The Braveheart star's reputation has been badly damaged following the release of several tape recordings which purportedly feature Gibson hurling abuse and vile threats at Oksana Grigorieva during phone calls.
Britain's The Mail On Sunday reported Gibson, who grew up in Australia after moving there with his family at the age of 12, has been planning to leave the U.S. and relocate back Down Under with his estranged wife, Robyn, who has defended the star since the release of the recordings.
But Gibson's spokesperson, Alan Nierob, has slammed the suggestion, telling NBC, "There's no truth to the Mail story."
The fall out following Gibson's split from Grigorieva has turned nasty in recent weeks, the singer has faced allegations she has tried to extort $10 million (£6.6 million) from her former lover to keep the tapes private, while her rep, Stephen Jaffe, has accused Gibson's camp of launching a smear campaign against her.
The pair shares a daughter together.
