Report: Robert Pattinson Involved in Car Accident

Report: Robert Pattinson Involved in Car Accident-photo

Robert Pattinson's charm and mojo are so strong, that even the guy whose car he reportedly smacked into seems to be wooed by his aura.

The Twilight actor reportedly got in a fender-bender on Saturday night, colliding with a parked car as he left a friend's Malibu, California, home. According to witnesses, the accident occurred at approximately 9 p.m., as R-Pattz ran into a parked Kia.

The car's owner, Rob Gottschlich, tells OK! Magazine that he isn't likely to pursue the issue—except for maybe hitting up R-Pattz for free movie tickets the next time he sees him: 

“If I had a nice car like a Lexus or something, maybe [I would be concerned], but I’ve got an old Kia. I am going to ask Rob next time I see him for free tickets to the next Twilight film."

The Malibu Sheriff's Office reports that no complaints have been filed regarding the alleged accident. The actor's rep, meanwhile, casts doubt on the accident story, noting that Pattinson isn't aware of having struck another vehicle. The rep suggests, however, that if an accident did occur, it might be because his client was distracted by the paparazzi snapping shots of him:

“Robert was pulling out of a parking space after a quiet day in Malibu yesterday and was relentlessly pursued by paparazzi. He has no knowledge of having bumped or damaged another car in the process.”

Pattinson did, in fact, exchange heated words with the shutterbugs over the course of the day Saturday, pleading with them to leave him alone and asking the police to intervene. Check out the video exchange below:

    Get your facts straight. He refuses to get tan because he doesn't like people with dark skin. Pure, unadulterated, racism. What a ridiculous thing to say """"""Maybe he refuses to get a tan because he needs to be deathly white for his role as Edward getting a tan would make that extremely hard to cover up I,m not his biggest fan or anything but that just seemed like a stupid statement that had a obvious answer

    I don't understand where people got an idea that Rob doesn't want to get a tan. He was asked in some interview and he said that he was spending time under the sun but he just doesn't get a tan. Some people's skin doesn't get tan, it gets burned. I know it myself first hand. I wish I got some tan, I like it but I don't get a lot of tan and always have to wear sunblock. That doesn't make me a racist. It's just my skin reaction to sun. As far as hit and run accident goes, the papz video doesn't show it. If Ron hit a car, papz would sure thing had pictures and video of it because they were following Rob all day. But they have zero proof that Rob hit anyone's car. If they had a proof, they would post those pictures in a heart bit. So I think it's all BS made up by X17 to get hits on their website and then OK! joined in and every other tabloid. It's all made up for sensation because headlines stating that Rob has politely asked papz not follow him doesn't make a good news.

    Get your facts straight. He refuses to get tan because he doesn't like people with dark skin. Pure, unadulterated, racism. Uh he can't "get tan" because of the twilight movies! Get YOUR facts straight. He has to be "pasty white" to play a vampire. Maybe you got the wrong celebrity, or maybe your just jealous because RPattz is the Shizz :P

    Nikki reed got in trouble from the producers because she got a tan (she told jimmey kimmel in an interview this year) - the make up artists can only do so much O.o She did...?Well they made her look pale.The make up artists do wonders,they made him sparkle,painted abs and etc. I doubt if he were a little tanned it would have been a problem.

    Playing a vampire forbids them to get a tan in real life?It's almost as ridiculous as being a racist simply because he refuses to get tanned.Nikki Reed has quite the tan I don't see her getting fired any time soon,Ashley Greene isn't exactly pale... I'm sure no one forbids them from getting a tan,it's a make-up artists job to keep them pale.

    Get your facts straight. He refuses to get tan because he doesn't like people with dark skin. Pure, unadulterated, racism. Get your facts straight! He isn't allowed to get a tan - if you've been living under a rock and don't know that he has to be pale so he can play Edward Cullen , all of the twilight cast that play vampires need to stay pale! You don't know him so don't make any judgements.

    This only further supports my previous claims: Robert Pattinson is an alcoholic (and racist). Rob wasn't "aware of having struck another vehicle" because he was probably too wasted to know what was going on. Someone get this guy into rehab. Dude. An if he did "bump" a car who cares? obviously the owner didn't, its an honest mistake. I mean who wouldn't hit a car when you got papz following you 24/7 alcoholic? lol.. someone reads too many gossip magz, 99% of the rumors aren't true buddy.

    The video never shows any "hit and run". The video doesn't match up what the site wrote in their sensational headline. X17 are liars, not Rob. How would Rob go to the cops if he was drunk? This is nonsense, he went to the cops to complain about being harrassed by the paps.

    It's sick really, paparazzi's don't have any moral norms I guess. Cop's can't do anything not just cuz they don't want but just cuz they can't, street count's as public space, and in public space people are free to do anything.

    What a liar. There's pictures of the damage he cause to the Kia vehicle. Also the victim was interviewed about it, and confirmed the damage. Said it was no big deal. Mr. Pattinson is not a very honest person. That's a bad quality as a human being. Shame. Unbelievable -- read it again. He did not say that - it was a statement from his publicist. You need to understand the content instead of jumping to ridiculous conclusions.

    poor robert...now i know why his co-stars in twilight says they wouldn't want to be in rob's place...it's because of this... i think robert is a really nice guy but he just had enough of all the hounding he gets from the papz. & i'm really disappointed with the cops, they didn't even help him, they just stood there...unbelievable!!! i think it's about time to make a law against the papzz... the things they do just to make money is really getting so horrible...

    I think it is very terrifying how the paparazzi followed RP the entire day especially at night. He was always polite and let them took photos so they would leave him alone. I think their should be line where to stop (law?!). The cops???. They should have helped him out!

    Seiously can't the damn pappz cant give him a break seriously!!! it was probably not rob's fault to get into the car accident it was the pappz because they were chasing him around and were taking pics when rob was telling them to stop chasing him.... i feel so sorry for him..

    I think it is absolutely horrible the way the paparazzi followed him the entire day while he was trying to spend time with his Mom and friends. He took the time to pose for them to try to get them to bug off and you go and print absolute libel about him. Thank Goodness he has grace because I for one would never be able to put up with that crap. There really needs to be something done about the paparazzi. I understand they are a celebrity and that people out they love to hear and see what he's doing but you clearly crossed a line on Saturday. I hope he sues your ass and as for the cops, you were just as much to blame. You have a civic duty to perform and you failed miserably!

    Holly, there are more important things in life than money... like strippers and free candy. I'm fortunate enough to date a stripper and my father owns a candy factory... so my life if all set.

Oh noah, nothing better to do than write some stuff and sit back hoping to get everyone all up-in-arms about your ridiculous statement? Your version of daily entertainment I suppose. Come on, don't be jealous of the guy simply because he makes more in a year than you will in your entire life. Don't be so hard on yourself! By the way, Rob once said that Wesley Snipes is actually his favorite vampire of all time. Peace!

    This is so sad. I couldn't imagine living my life under microscope. Not to be able to go to a grocery store, mall, or take a walk without someone taping me. The celebs are like hermits in their homes (some of them) bc of the paparazzi. They should have rights to say they do not want their picture taken.

    The jacks following rob around all day are the ones to blame, look at the KIA it is beat up from the owner not taken care of it, robs NOVA has no sings of damage on it sense they followed him all night you see when he drives away the back of his car is straight. love the A** who asked rob if the fame was getting to him, with people like that out there it is know wander Celebrity's cope an attitude, rob never cursed anyone or said anything negative to them he just wanted to be left alone . They where going to cause an accident and someone was going to get hurt. Love the police to great job I thought rob was pretty level headed for as much sh^t he had to put up with. If he got in there face or cursed them out than why haven't we seen that part of there tape. Hope this doesn't drive rob over the edge he has better genes than that.

    That has got to be the worst pap video I've even seen. They are so relentless and cruel. He just didn't want them to follow him home! He even just stood there so they could get a picture and they coudln't even let him leave in peace? And the cops did NOTHING! I hope they feel horrible. And GossipCop confirmed that Rob didn't really hit anyone's car. Stop making up lies just for a headline. Rob is the most gracious celebrity out there. He didn't even raise his voice at them! And yet here you are saying he hit a car and then left. You are all pathetic. I think that they should get there pictures and then let him go and stop following him and that is right he didn't yell or raise his voice but that is probably what they had hoped he would do that is pretty bad to hound someone like that.
