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.”

    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 Says:

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

    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!

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

    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.

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

    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…

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

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

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.
