Dark Knight star Christian Bale has been accused of attacking his 61-year-old mother Jenny and 40-year-old sister Sharon at London’s Dorchester hotel on Sunday. He’s denied the claims and has a team of hot-shot lawyers on hand to clear his name.

Welsh-born Bale, aged 34, was arrested by Met police and spent a day being quizzed at Belgravia police station. Well, makes a change from endless press junkets…

His legal team have stated that “Christian Bale… gave his account in full of the events in question, and has left the station without any charge being made against him by the police.”

As for Mum and Sis, they’ve been keeping a low profile. Sharon spoke to the press from the window of her Dorset home and told them it was a “family matter”. Hmm…

Whatever happens, Warner Brothers has said that the inquiry won’t affect Dark Knight’s international press tour. “Everybody is continuing with business as usual,” a spokesperson said. Looks like all publicity is good publicity after all.

StumbleUpon It!
