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:
Pattinson did, in fact, exchange heated words with the shutterbugs
“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.”
