Christian Bale Arrested on Assault

Christian Bale walks the red carpet at the UK premiere of The Dark Knight held at the Odeon, Leicester Square on Monday.

The Dark Knight star allegedly lashed out and assaulted his mother and sister at London’s Dorchester hotel on Sunday, where he has a suite. Bale‘s mother Jenny, 61, and sister Sharon, 40, went to a police station on Monday to lodge a formal complaint against him.

Bale was allowed to go to the premiere but police in London were expected to question him soon after.

A Met Police spokesman said: “A 34-year-old man attended a London Police Station on Tuesday by appointment and was arrested in connection with an allegation of assault.”

    I hope this isn’t true…

  • kristin

    I don’t get it- did he assault his mom?

  • ally

    WHAT THE HELL?!

  • lulu

    Crazy, her rmom and sister pressing charges ?
    I hope it’s not true, He seems to had a very mild manner.

  • Deb

    Maybe his mom and sister wanted money and to go to the premire. I have heard horror stories about family wanting everything from the family member that makes it big, giving guilt treatments on how the don’t care about the family unless they take care of everyone finanically. That is why there are some celebrities that don’t talk to their families anymore.

  • Deb

    I would not talk to my mom or sister again after this.

  • kitty

    OMG, he looks so handsome. Just saw his profile on m’illionaire d’ating s’ite “”"”"M e e t i n g W e a l t h y.c o m”"” ” last week. I am wondering what kind of relationship he is looking for on that site. Is he single now? Just curious!
    ————————————————————–

  • anon

    He seems exhausted and agitated both in these pictures..
    I really hope this isn’t true, it would be so disappointing.

  • http://zoqy.net Victoria

    This story is bizarre!
    I can’t believe he would assault his own mother/sister?
    I hope it’s not true.
    It seems serious though, if his mother/sister felt the need to report him to the authorities.

  • samantha

    ya, it probably is serious if his mother and sister felt the need to report him. :(

  • twilight

    Me too!..but he does look like something’s bothering him and he’s not “there”. Hope it’s just a misunderstanding, but if it’s true, then it’s really sad and disheartening. He’ll lose a lot of fans as well…

  • fresh

    Damn, with family like that you really dont need enemies. I’d definetly cut them off from my money.

  • Deb

    I wonder what his kids are going to think about their grandma and aunt now.

  • Jess

    He is a seriously weird person. This actually doesn’t shock me.

    People need to stop being so naive about movie stars. Most of them are damaged goods.

  • bejeebus

    this is too weird….last night, i was telling my husband how much i liked christian and how even though he started out as a child actor…he had always seemed to stay out of trouble and was really coming into great success….i hope this is a misunderstanding of some sort…..of what sort…i can’t even begin to guess….unless his mom and sis are shady?

  • lori

    i just googled the story and it’s alreay everywhere. i bet the pressure of hearing all about heath ledger’s performance being praised beyond reason finally pushed him over the edge. i can handle one of my co workers getting praised at work but when i’m totally over looked i get a bit on edge and pissy. i’m sure that wasn’t all of it, but it’s so weird that it happened right in the middle of the batman frenzy. i hope he can bounce back, i really like christian and still do.

  • edna

    His mom and sister are alcoholics and drug addicts, they showed up at his hotel uninvited and highly intoxicated. they were calling him big shot and that he needs to take care of his own. His mom was yelling that he would be nothing without her and he owed her. His sister was begging for money and when he was pushing her toward the door his mother came from behind and started hitting him on his head and kicking him. He managed to push them both out the door and his mom fell, they called the police and wanted him arrested. I believe that Chirstian is the victim here not his mom or sister

  • bla

    hes the most boreing peson ever,,, christian bale is a plank of wood,

  • jk

    OMFG American psycho!! lol

  • mandy

    edna, how do you know all that?

  • The incredible edward!

    I’ve had a crush on him since he was a little boy in “Empire of the Sun”… hope this is not true, but even if it is… who bloody cares… angry he is even hotter!

  • [☆I n F a m o u s☆]

    you gɛt arrested in london for yɛlling at your mummy? lol

    this ish is bull, bale wasnt arrested. the ‘lady-who-gavɛ-birth-to-him’ and heɹ ‘daughtɛr’ sound like haters.

    the bad side of success – hateɹs. even worse – hating ass family mɛmbers.

  • Amy

    jk – Welsh Psycho ;)

  • Helena

    I thought his mother died?

  • edna

    My father works security at the hotel, and he said it was a mess. His mom and sister wanted the front desk worker to let them into his room to wait for him. When they were told no they started cussing and yelling. they sat in front of his door for an hour until he finally arrived.

  • maybe he’s the psycho?

    I can’t believe everyone is assuming that Christian’s mom and sister started the altercation. Personally, I don’t know what happened and I’m reserving judgment until more is known. Until both sides are heard, no one will know the truth.

  • Deb

    # 24 Helena @ 07/22/2008 at 10:20 am I thought his mother died?

    ___________________

    That was his father that died, in 2003 i believe.

  • rayt

    He IS a weird person, I’m not shocked at all. My friend met him and she said he was a total ass and wasn’t paying attention to what was going around him at all.. like he was drugged up or something.

  • mike

    Jess your a retarded bitch…not every movie star out there is fucked up….there are some good talented people out there….who work hard…and stay out of trouble…so don’t go stereotyping ever single person…

  • Jess

    I didn’t say fucked up but if you’re looking for role models Hollywood should be the last place you look. Don’t confuse talent with being “good” people. Trust me they don’t get where they are by being what any normal person would define as “good”.

  • [☆I n F a m o u s☆]

    ……um, are peōple supposed to believe bale went american psy·cho… on his ōwn mother and sister? haha!

    in a fɛw hōurs they’ll be talking about hōw this wholɛ thing is a big misundɛrstanding.

  • balehead

    I am gutted to hear the bull! I love Christian. I just hope he manages to clear his name. He’s never been in trouble and all of a sudden at the height of his career his family accuse of him of assault?! It’s just a bizarre story. And why did his mother and sister report the assault to a police station in Dorset and not in London where it happened?

    Hope he is released soon and gives a statement.

  • marty

    @ DEB – This is EXACTLY what I was thinking about!!!

    This is so sad.

  • TF

    Aw, poor baley. I don’t think his mom and sister would charge assault charges against him, unless he has a long history of assault. I’ve never heard anything about him being an angry, aggressive person before. I doubt this is anything serious. Hopefully this will all blow over. If his mom and sister do charge him and its for money… than obviously they just want a piece of his cheese. With Dark Night record breaking at the box office, he sure has a lot of dough now for people to start making accusations to get a piece. I hope thats not the case!

  • marty

    Jared… I forgot to mention – You’ve reported it FIRST! ;)

  • lurking

    The story is everywhere on the net now. I seriously think his mom and the sister are up to something. How could you turn a family member in? It doesn’t make any sense. I would wait for the facts before we can make any judgement. Christian has so much going for him, wife and child and awesome career. In the mean time as fans, we should give him the benefit of a doubt.

    Yeah, you’re right. I remember one of them dying.

  • elle

    What a Pig!!! HE SHOULD SEE A PSYCHIATRIST

  • Passing Through

    Holy shite! I hope this isn’t true. Not Christian! I thought he was one of the good guys!

  • daga

    what the…… this cannot be true.. can it?

  • George

    I hope that this story isn’t true. A son should never lay a hand on his mother in anger. Popping sis isn’t cool, either.

  • wtf

    So good to know that 99% of you in here use you common sense!

    Of course this is some kind of a set up! I think his family was whining about money. He didn’t gave it to them. They’ve made this little “plot”. It is so damn OBVIOUS!

    Now they’ll have the money. How? They’ll settle it out of court. Remember this.

    They don’t want only the $. They want to finish him off.
    And if true (I hope it is) it’s simply despicable!

  • BETSY SMITH

    MAYBE IT WAS ALL THOSE SIGNS THAT SAID “RIP HEATH LEDGER”
    IT MUST BE FUN GOING TO ALL THESE PREMIERES ONLY TO TALK
    ABOUT HEATH LEDGER.. AFTER WORKING SO HARD ON A MOVIE
    THAT HE GETS ALL THE CREDIT FOR IT..OSCARS ARE NOMINATED
    BY THE ACTORS… SO WE WILL SEE IF THE ACTORS AGREE…
    THIS SPECIAL OSCAR SHOULD BE NOMINATED BY THE
    AND MEDIA…SORRY THAT IS THE GOLDEN GLOBES.. MAY HE MIGHT
    WIN THAT TOO..WHY NOT HAVE CHRIS NOLAN SHOW UP BY HIMSELF AND PROMOTE THE MOVIE SINCE HEATH A DEAD DRUG ADDICT .. WAS THE ONLY ONE HONORED THE POLICE SAID A 34 YEAR OLD MAN….THEY DID NOT SAY IT WAS CHRISTIAN…

  • bozzer

    if he did assault those women, they would be in a bad way. bale is a tank. he would batter them lol

  • More to it

    There has got to be more to it than this. I can not believe he would do something like this. I hope its all a misunderstanding. But anything can be seen as an assult this days so it may not be anything serious. If he did push his mother out of the way, just laying a hand on her to do that could be seen as an assult.

  • Deb

    I hope it comes out that he has had problems with his mom and sister before, so he can clear his name. He will not be losing me as a fan, I have heard too many horror stories like this before. Money does really stupid things to so called family. I know, when my uncle died and gave money to his children some of the family acted in a way I would have never guessed. To this day I don’t talk to any of them. How can you trust people that would try to hurt you just so you will give them money.

  • heh

    In Bale’s defense, he did tell those b1tches not to touch the mini bar.

  • Caite

    the fact that this happened on sunday and was reported by his mother and sister the next day, and that bale went willingly to the police station after his premier make me think that this is not as serious as everyone initially thought. i hope it all gets worked out!

  • Caite

    and i love bozzer’s comment :)
