Christian Bale's Mother Allegedly Insulted His Wife

Christian Bale's Mother Allegedly Insulted His Wife

Following Christian Bale's arrest and subsequent release and statement in London yesterday, the MailOnline reports today that Christian reportedly lost his temper after his mother allegedly insulted his wife.

The incident apparently comes at a time when his marriage is enduring difficulties and he has been depressed over the death of Heath Ledger. A source close to the actor claims Christian is confident he has done nothing wrong and he blames his mother:

"Christian was stressed, 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.

"Christian's attitude is that this was his mother's fault because she became very provocative in an argument they were having...

"Christian has admitted that something just snapped, but he didn't threaten anyone with violence".

To find out more about the effect of Heath's death on Christian, and to see what Christian's mother and sister have said,

The source also claims that Christian had been deeply affected by Heath's death, saying: "They had become very close during the making of The Dark Knight and Christian went into virtual hiding for the six weeks after Heath was found dead".

Christian's mother, Jenny, and sister, Sharon, have spoken to The Daily Telegraph about the incident, which was reportedly over a long-running family dispute.

Sharon said: "OK, there was an incident but the police are dealing with it. It is an extremely sensitive situation. There is nothing more I can say".

Jenny said: "Yes I was there and yes there was a family situation but the police are handling it and I cannot say anymore at the moment. We didn't call the police to the scene. I can't say anymore but we didn't call the police".

Stay tuned for more updates.

I'm siding with Christian right now. It makes sense that Christian would angrily defend his wife and that he would be in a state of depression, especially in light of recent events. He also doesn't seem to be terribly close to his mother or sister.

It's called "a breach of the peace" and can encompass many things. No doubt someone in the hotel called the police, I've called them when I've heard a ruckus outside of my house before, less it escalate into violence. In this case it shouldn't go to court though. How awful for him that this should have been made public, Warners must be wringing their hands too.

What a good husband defending his wife, but still it's sad that he's depressed.

I don't blame him...especially if she was bashing his wife, whom he obviously loves....more men should grow some hairy boys and stand up for their wives IMO...I love him even more now...I can imagine him screaming and sounding like he did in American Psycho lmao

Thanks for giving us more to go on. He gets husband of the month for standing up to his mother about his wife.

So a police investigation is warranted in London for verbally cussing out your mom? Okaaay.....?? I side with Christian Bale until more info comes available.

Since he has been with Sibi for so long and you rarely hear anything bad about either of them, I tend to side with him too. Nothing against his mom but if she slagged off his wife, then yelling is not exactly unheard of in any other household..putting him on some sort of pedestal would be entirely unfair in this case.

If this isn't the biggest LOAD of B.S. I'm already sick of hearing about it because the details don't add up.

I know, he just doesn't seem like someone who would break the law! Especially since he's done so well keeping his private life private, why would he go and do something like this when all eyes are on him?

So you have to go to the police station for verbal assault? Couldn't that have been cleared up without a trip to the station? The cops in London are weird.

Ugh, I too am biased in this situation. I love Christian and his work, and I am happy to hear that he stood up for himself and his wife.

If this is how it happened, kuddos to him for standing up to his mother to defend his wife!!!

I hope for him that this all just goes away. I think if it had happened at any other point than during the opening week of pretty much the biggest movie ever, we wouldn't have heard much about it. Probably just a little side-bar item. Too bad it has to be splattered EVERYWHERE.

I think my love for him and his work provides a biased view on this whole assault matter, because I side completely with him. I do hope that Christian and his family problems get resolved!

Oh i love him. I can sympthasize with him, family disputes can get way out of hand but i do not think they needed to go to the police. They should've walked out and let him cool off, he's obviously upset about other things as well. Poor Christian, i will give you a hug.
