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.”

10+ pictures inside of Nicole Kidman getting run down by a bicycle…

    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!!

  • Dave

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

  • Nightwish

    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

  • Jeneane

    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!

  • tjader

    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.

  • Sam

    @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.

  • behind the curtain

    “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.

  • Mott

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

  • dean

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

  • an opinion

    @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

    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.

  • Fellow Aussie

    @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.

  • @ Aussie

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

  • http://yahoo JoBeth

    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.

  • Suri=meal ticket

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

  • just wondering

    @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

    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.

  • Danielle

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

  • just wondering

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

  • http://yahoo JoBeth

    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.

  • lolatoopointoh

    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!

  • kary

    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?

  • Wurry

    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.

  • Desert

    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.

  • ?

    nice wig

  • not that stupid

    @just wondering: Sue Raddatz the paper pusher is a doctor now? How did you fit in med school with all that Urban Kidman stalking you’ve done for the past 8 years?

  • Don’t forget -

    Sue thinks she’s a doctor because she examines her son’s balls nightly.

  • jen

    Why is it in other countries the paps have to obey laws about staying a certain number of feet away from celebrities?
    Why is it we can not enforce that here? You would think that in Hollywood with all that $$$$ they could pass a law.

  • Oh dear

    Naughty Nicole! Drunk and disorderly outside the Carlyle Hotel.

  • Lenny

    Kidman probably stumbled while tottering along on her 4 inch heels and pushed the innocent cyclist off his bike. He should sue her!!

  • it’s moron o’clock

    Welcome to the Stupid Skeptic Hour starring Sue Raddatz, the resident Just Jared pathological liar.

  • On deaf

    Nicole sobered up and headed off to the calvin klein after party.

  • April

    @Wurry: Your comment was the best one yet, it had me ROTFLMAO. Hope she is OK.

  • it’s SM again and again and

    7 – behind the curtain
    13 – @ Aussie
    17 – wakeup call
    18 – Danielle
    26 – not that stupid
    27 – Don’t forget

    is all the same person, Skewer Mistress, obsessed with a nobody call Sue. She thinks everyone is Sue. Must be lousy for her to have Sue with her blowjobs, son’s balls, anal beads, belly fat, etc so etched into her brain, that she can’t now see the wood for the trees. A miserable existence she must have, scouring the internet for her ammunition, trolling the Kidman threads, always to the very bitter end. Bullying anyone she thinks is Sue.

    Why does she change her name so much?? So the everyone can’t see how sickly obsessed she is. Shame.

    oops, I didn’t think to use SM’s trick … to avoid censorship:

  • Just an accident

    Stop gawking people and move along.

  • Toni

    @tim: You obviously have not seen all the images. Nicole landed heavily on the ground. These images are after she was helped up again. The pap should have he assed sued off.

  • Toni

    @just wondering: This occured AFTER the fashion show. She was returning to her hotel.

  • Toni

    @dean: She CAN sue him, because he was taking photos of her, while riding straight at her.

  • Just an accident

    She was at another event later on. She is just fine. Quit gawking and move along.

  • Bitc.H

    @tim: The only reason he’s getting arrested cuz he’s been riding his bicycle on the side walk!!!

    What happened to mt comments JJ????

  • Charlie

    DONT BE AN IDIOT SHE COULD HAVE GOT SERIOUSLY INJURED WATCH THE VIDEO PROPERLY http://www.tmz.com/2013/09/13/nicole-kidman-paparazzo-bicycle-bike-crash-video/

  • Clare

    There are many catastrophes in the world. This isn’t one of them.

  • Alliana

    For those of you, to put it kindly, making light of this. The bike rider was Carl Wu – a very aggressive pap who has had other complaints filed against him. This could easily have been a pregnant Halle Berry or Angelina Jolie with her kids or Katie Holmes with Suri. Or Nicole could have been carrying Faith and had Sunday by the hand. His actions in trying to get a photo are indefensible.

  • Clare

    How did Wu know to arrive at the hotel on a bike at that precise moment?

  • Jada Knows

    Eff off Sue. Are you still obsessed with Clare, the fan that took some skeptics down and off the internet? You’re a huge embarrassment and a pathetic excuse for a human being.

    That video is horrendous. Even at a distance it’s hard to watch him barrell through and knock Nicole over. He easily could have easily hurt many more people. And it does beg the question – what if the woman standing there was pregnant or was holding a child or was elderly. It’s not about Nicole Kidman. It’s about this man’s atrocious behavior. I hope she does take him to court. I can understand between family and work it may be something she doesn’t want to focus on, but more power to her if she sues him.

  • Jada Knows

    @Alliana: It’s one woman Sue Raddatz who has been trashing Nicole Kidman for 8 years. She’s the one in the tight white tee with the belly rolls.

  • Gabriela

    POOR NICOLE!
    SHAME ON YOU PAPARAZZI!

  • JOY

    He also NARROWLY missed another woman who was walking out of the place. He went around her and aimed directly for Nicole. Was pretty intense. Good thing her children were not with her.
