Hope this isn’t true

Christian Bale accused of assault by sister, mother

Batman actor Christian Bale has been accused of assault by his mother and sister, and will face police questioning.
‘The Dark Knight’ actor allegedly lashed out while staying at London’s Dorchester hotel on Sunday, where he has a suite. His mother Jenny (61) and sister Sharon (40) lodged a formal complaint against the star at a police station in Hampshire, Southern England. Bale (34) was permitted by police to attend the European premiere of ‘The Dark Knight’ – in which he plays superhero Batman – last night but will face questioning over the claims.
Police in London are expected to speak to the Welsh actor later today.
A police source told Britain’s The Sun newspaper: “It was a very difficult situation but it would have been wrong to have wrecked the premiere over a complaint which we don’t yet know is founded in truth. But Mr. Bale will be contacted at the earliest opportunity and be asked to provide an account of anything that happened.”
A spokesperson for London’s Metropolitan Police said: “We can confirm we have received an allegation from another force in relation to an alleged incident in central London.”
