Nicole Kidman Knocked Down by Bicycle Riding Photographer

Nicole Kidman Knocked Down by Bicycle Riding Photographer

Nicole Kidman tries to regain her balance after being knocked to the ground by a photographer riding a bicycle on Thursday afternoon (September 12) in New York City.

The 46-year-old actress was heading back to the Carlyle Hotel after attending the Calvin Klein fashion show earlier in the day when the photog came roaring up on his bicycle, tried to hit his brakes, but slammed into her, according to TMZ.

Nicole reportedly said at the scene that she plans on pressing charges and she called the cops, who only issued a ticket for riding his bike on the sidewalk. They will not arrest him for a criminal offense as “an accident’s an accident.”

Press charges??, why because her shoe fell off, the guy obviously got hurt more than she did, even if it’s his fault it was just an accident, the amount of the celebrity’s arrogance these days is utterly UNBELIEVABLE!!

# 2

She should press charges. This guy is a well-known idiot for brains papparazzo.

Thats the infamous Carl Wu, pain in the ass pap always up to no good. She is not young, and falling down can really hurt people sometime. look at her elbow

It looks like Nicole Kidman is okay but nobody should be riding their bike on an NYC sidewalk. he could have hurt more people. Nicole should press charges at the very least so maybe the man won’t do it again. If he doesn’t have enough common sense maybe his wallet will convince him!

I’m not a fan of Nicole Kidman, but paparazzis are really pushing it these days. She could’ve gotten really hurt because a guy was trying to take pictures of her.

@tim: Because he shouldn’t have been following her around and trying to get pictures in the first place. This guy, along with other paparazzi’s, need to learn to back off. They endanger themselves, celebrities, and bystanders with their recklessness. Paparazzi’s shouldn’t even be legal.

“tim” is Sue Raddatz, psycho skeptic from Minnesota, known to most as nomorefan online. No reason to give her “opinion” any weight. She’d put Kidman in jail for “being in Wu’s way” if she could. She’s that warped.

lady gaga and nicole kidman need to get their legal teams together and put the hazard out of business!

# 9

She can’t sue him. It was an accident. There is no law suit here.

@dean: What? People sued all the time when they are injured because of an accident. She should sue. These paps don’t need to get close to the celebs to get a photo.

Poppyseed @ 09/12/2013 at 7:29 pm

Dean’s never been in a car accident or known anyone who has I guess…

If a pap stalking Keanu Reeves was dumb enough to sue him from an altercation he caused then Nicole Kidman can and should sue this doofus for slamming into her, riding illegally no less.

@tim:

We here in Australia have seen the picture of her laying on the ground which isn’t shown above so it was not just getting her shoe knocked off. How would you like to be hit hard by a bike.

The full story is in the text. Sue aka tim doesn’t care about facts.

Who else could get knocked down and not have one wrinkle in her dress or a hair out of place? BTW, Tim, she was knocked to the ground (this was shown on the nightly news), and undoubtedly will be quite sore tomorrow.

Press charge!
Taking pix is one thing, knocking down people is another!

just wondering @ 09/12/2013 at 8:34 pm

@an opinion: What personal loss can she claim for suing him? She didn’t get hurt. Has no medical expenses. She didn’t lose pay from her job? She continued onto the fashion show, so she must be fine. Don’t call the paps and they won’t come.

wakeup call @ 09/12/2013 at 8:47 pm

He ENDANGERED everyone near him and his bike ”just wondering”. Cited for reckless riding, biking on sidewalk, and no helmet. How would you know she’s not hurt? Injuries don’t always show up right after. At the very least she’ll be sore and bruised tomorrow. If someone rammed into you how would you feel? No I know, she’s Nicole Kidman and she took your fantasy man away so she has no right to sue. Unbelievable how much jealousy and spite clouds your judgement.

@dean: your comment is embarrasing… @tim: f*ck off

just wondering @ 09/12/2013 at 9:01 pm

Unless she fractured her fibula, any leg injuries would be evident since you walk and put weight on your legs.

According to one of the news accounts, Nicole wasn’t hit directly by the bicycle; the bike hit a gentleman who was standing there and he knocked her over. Either way, it’s not fun to fall down in front of everyone; it hurts your pride. I think she may have been wearing a wig, and if so, that could have been very embarrassing.

My friend’s father was killed by speeding bicyclist who knocked into him and killed him nearly instantly. Bikes can be dangerous, thank goodness she seems ok!

I am 100% in favor of her pressing charges so a message is sent loud and clear to these reckless paparazzi. Imagine if this was a heavily pregnant celeb and they took a fall?

That’s actually very scary. She probably thought it was a Scientologist trying to kill her again.
You people have a distorted placement of empathy. The woman was mowed over.

They will not arrest him for a criminal offense as “an accident’s an accident.”

So if someone loses control of their car through no fault of their own and they hit a pedestrian they still can’t be charged because “an accident’s an accident”?

I think not.
