Robert Pattinson got tangled in a fender bender. Eyewitnesses told OK! Magazine that the Edward Cullen of "Twilight" saga was involved in the minor car crash after leaving a friend's home in Malibu on Saturday evening, July 24.

The incident was said occurring at around 9 P.M. and Pattinson's car was in collision with a Kia parked near the driveway. However, no report or complaint was made over the fender bender. On Saturday, Scott Chew, the Malibu Sheriff Watch Commander, confirmed, "Nothing was reported that I can see."

On why the owner of Kia, Rob Gottschlich, was not worried about the scrape, he told the site, "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."

Pattinson's rep, in the meantime, detailed about the collision, explaining "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."

Robert Pattinson is currently busy filming his forthcoming movie "Water for Elephants", co-starring Reese Witherspoon, Christoph Waltz and James Frain. The Francis Lawrence-directed film is scheduled to be released in the U.S. in 2011.

i think that rob could have been seriously hurt or worse. a fender bender is no laughing matter and i think it is very immature for ppl to make fun of it.

Such bull. I saw the video of Robert backing his car out and he never hit the car... I SAW it. Such lying paps! No wonder he says he hardly ever goes out; this is what happens all the time; I hope it doesn't make him want to take a break from acting because that's what is going to happen. These so-called photographers and stalkers and are dangerous. Rob was being so nice and was just pleading with them to leave him alone, I mean they got their pictures and video, wasn't that enough; NO, they wanted to follow him home so they could find out where he lived. Creeps. I feel bad for him. I mean I know he has made a lot of money from being an actor but he deserves the basic human need of his own space and some privacy so he can feel human and normal once in a while.

I can believe that if there was pics of the fender bender it would be plastered all over the gossip rags. It is sad when the paps have to make stuff up on top of all the stalking. I understand they need to make a living just like the rest of us, but good grief people where are your ethics? Oh yea I forgot what ethics!

When do the paps stop, when somebody is hurt? It realy has to stop. Fortunatuly everything is ok with Rob.

Where's the paps pics? They were there and would have witnessed the whole thing. If nothing comes out in 24 hours, it's got to be bogus. Just say'n.

It would be nice if there was a law to keep the Paps from all this harrassment that goes on with actors etc it's amazing no one has been killed. These idiots with their cameras are abusing these people and it should be stopped like now. Thank Heavens he wasn't hurt or anyone else.

The paps hunted Rob like an animal. He seems like such a nice guy. They should leave him alone!
