Christian Bale Denies Assault Claims

Christian Bale‘s is denying assault allegations made against him by his mother and sister.

His attorneys released a statement on Tuesday that reads: “Christian Bale attended a London police station today, on a voluntary basis, in order to assist with an allegation that had been made against him to the police by his mother and sister. Mr. Bale who denies the allegation, co-operated throughout, gave his account in full of the events in question, and has left the station without any charge being made against him by the police. At this time, there will be no further comment by Mr. Bale.”

Yesterday, Bale‘s mother Jenny, 61, and sister Sharon, 40, went to a police station to lodge a formal complaint against The Dark Knight actor.

    Apparently his sister and mother are drunkasses. In the UK, assault is only verbal assault…I can not believe he got arrested and especially by his family.

  • Regina

    I believe that Bale is innocent.

    Anyway, Estelle Getty died! RIP.

  • ugh

    Bogus bullshit. Sounds like he just has a really f’d up family. Sad situation. I think the media is being typical and blowing things out of proportion and making it sound like he attacked his mother and sister. I don’t believe that for a second or they wouldn’t have waited to take him in the the station, and wouldn’t have let him go without charging him.

  • heh

    There you go!

    Now those two birds will be on every bloody TV channel to make money! Wanna bet?!

    If there were a law in the US like that in England, 99.999999999% of the population would have an arrest record longer than Route 66.

    He and his family are a mess. mental.

  • gina

    This whole thing is shocking, and bad timing with the movie release. I can’t believe his own family turned him in. Families fight all the time. I know mine does. We don’t call the cops in for it.

    his family seems to be mental.
    I believe that his innocent.

    Can you read, #14?

    The statement was given by Bale’s attorneys. “Mr. Bale, who denies the allegation…”

  • Vio

    It’s hard to tell because the media always twists things around. We won’t know for sure unless Christian releases a statement!

  • Ha!

    Um, [☆I n F a m o u s☆] , they’d have to build a fence around the desk where your computer sits.

  • shoes4life

    Nothing like envious/jealous family members to try and mess up your good name.


  • pinkydoo

    He looks a bit mental. I think it’s sad that you can’t even have a family fight without it leaking to the press . Next thng you know photographers and reporters will be haniging out in bathrooms and letting everyone know who has tummy trouble.

  • shoes4life

    Well we will definitely know the mom & sisters motives for all of this if they end up selling their story to the tabloids.

  • ugh

    Can you read, #16? The statement was released by Bale’s attorneys. “Mr. Bale, WHO DENIES the allegation…” If his spokesperson/lawyer says he denies it, then he denies it. Derr.

  • Buzz

    He fingered me once in the girls toilets at school. That’s my claim to fame, people. OUAT I got freaky with Batman.

  • Chuck

    His mother and sister are estranged – both have attempted to contest his father’s will. He died in 2003. His two other sisters are in the entertainment industry. People forget that Bale is a child star. Show Business moms. Ugh. And he wasn’t even arrested, so I don’t know why headlines are saying he was.

  • Deb

    I knew it – don’t pay you mom and sister anything…..sounds so much like my family. Augh!!!!!!

  • Taylor Blue

    Team Christian all the way!!!! :)

  • Jennifer

    what #31 said.

  • Maria (Shorty)

    Christian hasn’t gotten along with his Mum for years! I think both Mum and Sis went to hotel to start a mess. THEY’RE the ones that need to be locked up.

  • Diana

    All sounds like BULL SH*T to me!! Poor Christian, it just happens to take place during his European premiere. He has one screwed up sister and mom. Seems totally bogus to me! Especially around the time this took place! PURE BS! He performance in The Dark Knight was amazing and this is what he gets!? Poor Christian.

  • anon

    one of the few actors who tries to keep a low profile, and during one of the biggest moments of his career, his family does this to him.
    if it is indeed true, i feel bad for him. his family should be ashamed of themselves.

  • andrea

    kick them to the curb Christian! They probably got mad cause he didn’t want to give them money or he did give them money and they spent that already and wanted more :-/ he probably told them to go to hell and they called the police on him.

  • Josh

    What kind of a mother would do that?


    When was the last time you saw Christian Bale with his mother…
    Ever since his father died.. you haven’t heard him talk about his
    mother or his sisters.. Just his wife and daughter…

    Who knew that Gloria Steinim was his step mother. And the last
    picture anyone has of Christian and his mother and sisters is when
    he was a teenager

  • Teresa

    I’m sorry, but that is so messed up that your own family would press assault charges. Especially knowing that doing so would go straight to the press. It sounds like he’s (obviously) not too close to his mom and sister and there are two sides to every story. Regardless of this headline, Christian is still one of my favorite actors.

  • hypnotikal

    eww obviously they are after his $

  • angie

    well, looks like Christian Bale needs a prayer to save him from his wacko family! Sweet Baby Jesus, Sister Mary Romano has a lot to say about this on celebrity prayer list

    I almost feel bad making fun of you. Merely because its too easy.
    And what fun is that?

  • Sharon

    His family may not be perfect but does not mean he is perfect. This guy may be on drugs too.

  • yuck

    Bale turns me off now. Batman is really a cursed franchise.

  • hello1

    sweet moment when he wins he thanks his family and his wife especially its a sweet moment, the crowd ate it up with awwwws lol


  • Marty

    Here is a little light over what really happened, and it is so, so sad because instead of helping him trough this times his family makes it even worse for him by going to the police!

    “Batman star Christian Bale allegedly assaulted his mother and sister after becoming depressed over strains in his marriage and the death of close friend Heath Ledger, it was claimed last night.”

    “A source close to Bale said the incident comes at a time when his marriage to Sandra ‘Sibi’ Blazic, a former model and make-up artist, is enduring difficulties.”

    “The source also claimed Bale had been deeply affected by the death from a drugs overdose of Ledger, who plays The Joker in the Batman film The Dark Knight.”

    ‘Christian’s attitude is that this was his mother’s fault because she became very provocative in an argument they were having,’ the source said. ‘Things got out of control and he says now he wishes he just left the room.

    ‘The thing that happened here was that normally Christian would just call a friend and go out to a pub to cool off. But he was literally trapped into this confrontation with his mother and sister because there was an army of fans and paparazzi outside.

    ‘He was feeling the stress, but he didn’t lay a finger on anyone. Instead, he flew off the handle and cussed his mother. He just got very loud because his mother was saying some very outrageous things about him, his wife and his child.’

    The source added: ‘His marriage is not perfect, but his relationship with his mother is in much more trouble.”

    Here is the whole read:
