LATEST: Orlando Bloom was involved in a war of words over a woman prior to crashing his car on Friday morning (12Oct07).
The British actor was driving a black Toyota Matrix, belonging to a friend, when he collided with a parked Porsche in Los Angeles, leaving his unnamed passenger with minor neck injuries.
Fashion photographer Damon Kidwell, 36, claims he came close to physically attacking the Pirates Of The Caribbean star after he attempted to chat up the snapper's ex-girlfriend Veronica Taylor.
He says, "I'm not going to say what he did but she told me, so I told him if he ever spoke to her again I would f**king beat him up.
"He wasn't behaving like an English gent. Photographers surrounded us and that's what saved his bacon."
