Katie Holmes Car Explosion Story Goes Up In Flames

Gossip Cop

Oh my goodness, Katie Holmes barely escaped with her life in Australia, where she’s currently filming the movie, “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark.” Like many other sites, ContactMusic.com breathlessly reported, “Katie Holmes was shooting a scene in a car when the vehicle’s battery caught fire leaving her running to safety.”

“Katie was left shaken after dashing from the car just before it burst into flames,” the dramatic account continues.

Actually, “left” is probably the only accurate part of the story. Her rep told Gossip Cop that Holmes was NOWHERE near harm’s way because “she had already left the set 10 minutes prior to it happening.” Oops.

Not such an explosive story after all.
