Christian Balewatch, Day 2: No one knows anything
Not much concrete news out of the Christian Bale family beatdown saga on Wednesday — but there are plenty of rumors floating about. TMZ posits Bale and his mom, Jenny, 61, have a longstanding beef, and Bale reportedly believes she was jealous of his success. The assault report, TMZ says, is nothing more than a “shakedown,” and that some tabs have been throwing a lot of zeroes at Bale’s family to tell their side of the story.
Meanwhile, London’s Daily Mail reports the brouhaha went down after Bale’s mom and sis badmouthed Bale’s wife Sandra Blazic, which sparked the actor’s considerable temper.
The New York Post gets closest to the heart of the story, as they talked to both Jenny and Bale’s sister Sharon, who said: “It is an extremely sensitive situation and I don’t know how the press got hold of it. We don’t want the press to affect the investigation.” Added Jenny: “We didn’t call the police to the scene. I can’t say any more, but we didn’t call the police.”
The bottom line, as always: Nobody knows anything. Please carry on with your day.
