Robert Pattinson got fed up with paparazzi hounding him all day Saturday. The “Eclipse” heartthrob lost his cool upon emerging from a Malibu house party and finding himself surrounded by photographers who planned to trail him to his home.
“Robert got really upset seeing photographers waiting outside for his picture and following him home, as he stopped twice asking the photographers to leave him alone,” a source told the blog Celebrity Gossip. After waiting in vain for them to disperse, “Robert came out of the car and confronted the photographers and talked to them, explaining they wouldn’t find out where he lives.”
Eventually, the actor asked the police for help. When they were unmoved by his plight, he conceded defeat and headed home.
But, that’s not all. In the course of his attempt to escape, Rob got into a fender bender, bumping a parked Kia near the house. The damage wasn’t serious, however, as the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department told OK! magazine “nothing was reported.”
“Robert ... has no knowledge of having bumped or damaged another car,” his rep said.
Either paparazzi are responsible for all the vehicular incidents in L.A., or publicists are really good at passing the buck.
And Baby-Daddy Makes Three
Halle Berry and baby-daddy Gabriel Aubry are moving halfway across the world together, but that doesn’t mean they’re getting back together.
The Oscar-winning actress is preparing to film her next role, for “Dark Tide,” in South Africa. Since her model ex-beau didn’t want to be deprived of time with daughter Nahla, he opted to accompany them, Radar Online reported. The group was spotted Saturday boarding a flight at LAX.
Sources told the gossip website that they’re not expecting Halle and Gabriel to reconcile.
Speaking of Oscar-winning actresses and hunky male models: It seems that Kate Winslet is moving on quite nicely after her split from Sam Mendes, with a drool-worthy dude who’s done Burberry ads.
Six-foot-tall model Louis Dowler, 34, met the “Titanic” star through friends a few months back and they’ve struck up a romance, the U.K.’s Sun reported.
“Louis has been spending a lot of time with Kate recently and they were in New York together while he was shooting an advert,” an insider said. “They’ve been on lots of dates and get on really well. It’s early days for them, but they enjoy each other’s company. They have been desperate to keep the relationship under wraps, so they’ve been a bit low-key so far.”
Kate announced her split from brainy-but-not-exactly-smokin’-hot director Sam in March and has denied rumors of reconnecting with him.
“Louis has a good sense of humour and really is a lovely guy,” the source said. “He’s a good-looking guy and gets lots of attention when he’s out and about, but he’s not your typical model.”
Sounds like Kate picked herself a winner. Enjoy, girl!
