Ground collision at Memmingen

Is there any truth in this?

German media are reporting that Thailand’s King Vajiralongkorn was involved in a ground collision when his 737 hit another aircraft at Memmingen airport on October 4

This via google translate.
The Allgäu-Airport in Memmingen has just been put into operation after a two-week renewal of its runway when it crashed again on 4 October. Two planes collided with their wings. On board the Boeing 737 from Thailand, which was involved in this hitherto concealed collision with sheet metal damage, was just "904", as the security code for Thailand's king Maha Vajiralongkorn alias Rama X is. He has a pilot's license for the twin-jet jet for years. However, it is unclear whether Phrabat Somdet Phra Vajira Klao Chao Yu Hua, according to the official title of the monarch, was sitting in the cockpit himself.
