Report: Christian Bale Accused of Assaulting Mom & Sister


This is disturbing.

The British media is reporting that Christian Bale is being questioned by police, after allegations surfaced that he assaulted his mother and sister the night before the European premiere of The Dark Knight.

According to Britain's Press Association, the actor's mother and sister claimed that Chris got physical with them at a west London hotel. They reportedly went to a police station in south England on Monday to report the incident, which was then passed on to Scotland Yard in London.

Christian is expected to be questioned today, though Scotland Yard would not confirm that the actor was a part of their investigation.

What is that about? That whole story creeps me out, as I just picture Christian in American Psycho, running through the halls of his apartment building with a machete. Except this story may be for real -- and the victims are said to be his mom and sister. Stay tuned...

Update: Christian was released from the station. He'll have to return in September pending further inquiry. TMZ is reporting that the assault was apparently verbal, and not physical. Hmmm...
