Robert Pattinson's rep has dismissed reports the actor was involved in a minor car accident in California on Saturday (24Jul10) following claims he shunted another vehicle as he reversed out of a driveway.
The Twilight hunk is said to have bumped his car into a Kia hatchback parked nearby as he left a friend's home in Malibu.
The owner of the Kia, Rob Gottschlich, told America's OK! magazine his vehicle suffered minor damage in the accident but he took it in good humour, saying, "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 incident was not reported to local police and a spokesperson for the British actor is adamant the accident never took place, adding, "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."
