You're probably going to have to remove the wheel from the car and beat that part of the fender lip back into position. Don't hit the metal of the car directly with a hammer. Hold a piece of 2x4 against the bent fender lip and hit the 2x4 with the hammer. That should move the fender lip back into place without doing any more damage to your paint. Keep the pliers and vice grips in your toolbox!

Do you think it's safe to drive with the fender bottomed out like that?
As long as you don't unexpectedly bottom-out the rear of the car, you should be OK. Remember that carrying rear passengers makes you more likely to experience rubbing issues in the rear.
Be sure to carefully examine the tire sidewall to make sure it didn't get cut/gouged in the process.
