Robert Pattinson’s taxi-collision reports ‘exaggerated’June 20th, 2009 - 3:22 pm ICT by ANI
London, June 20 (ANI): Movie bosses have claimed that reports saying that Robert Pattinson was running away from fans when he was hit by a taxi are completely false and “exaggerated”.
The ‘Twilight’ star was mobbed by fans on Thursday, while shooting for his new film ‘Remember Me’ in New York.
But internet gossip columns claimed that Pattinson was clipped on the hip by a yellow cab while he was trying to run across a road in downtown Manhattan in order to escape the swarm of teenage girls.
According to the Daily Express, a report on RadarOnline.com says that a bodyguard checked the 23-year-old for injuries before screaming at fans: “You see what you did, you almost killed him!”
However, a spokesperson for the movie’s production company has downplayed the reports, claiming that the film’s shooting is continuing normally after the drama.
“The reports are exaggerated. It was not caused by his fans. Production continues,” Vivian Mayer told the New York Daily News. (ANI)
