TMZ is reporting new deets in the arrest of and alleged assault by Christian Bale. According to them, there was physical contact between Bale and his estranged mother and sister … but there is a disagreement as to whether that contact was a “push” or a “brush”:
Sources directly connected to the Christian Bale case tell TMZ there was physical contact between Christian and his mom, but it amounted to next to nothing. We’re told Bale pushed his mom out of the way during the altercation. She was not hurt and did not fall down. There’s a division of opinion on whether the contact was a “push” or a “brush.”
There is other unsubstantiated information going around that Bale’s mother and sister, Jenny (61) and Sharon (40), showed up uninvited at the Dorchester hotel (where he was staying) late Sunday night in an intoxicated state, looking for money (and trouble) and causing a scene. When Christian finally showed up at his hotel the incident ensued where he, apparently, tried to either get out of the hotel himself or get them ejected from the hotel — and that is when the physical contact occurred. Now, BE AWARE, this information is conjecture at best … only those involved with the police investigation (and those involved directly) know for sure what went down. I am quite comfortable believing that the truth will set Christian Bale free. I cannot for the life of me envision him purposely assaulting his mother and sister. These are people he may have been estranged from for many years but, even still, it doesn’t make sense that he would actively decide to assault anyone … especially when he is in the middle of a huge promo tour for a blockbuster movie. The idea that he assaulted these women doesn’t make sense … the scenario described above does make sense. Christian Bale is still clean in my eyes.
