Sources close to Christian Bale tell the Daily Mail that there was no physical assault or threat of violence directed towards his mother. Also, they say Bale has become depressed over the death of Heath Ledger and is currently dealing with problems in his marriage.
‘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, and his wife.’
‘Christian’s attitude is that this was his mother’s fault because she became very provocative in an argument they were having,’ the source said, adding: ‘Things got out of control and he now says he wishes he just left the room.
‘Normally Christian would just call a friend and go out to a pub to cool off. But he was literally trapped into this confrontation with his mother and sister because there was an army of fans and paparazzi outside.’
Who hasn’t gotten into a heated argument with their mother and exchanged verbal jabs? I do it all the time. Behind her back. When she’s not paying attention. And it’s not so much shouting as it is silently mouthing the words. So, yea. I know the situation exactly.
