London, July 24 (IANS) Christian Bale reportedly lost his temper when his sister asked for money to help raise her three children. According to, Bale’s sister Sharon needed 100,000 pounds. When she asked him to lend her the amount, he “pushed and shoved” her and his mother as well.

A source associated with the case said: “Bale is a very wealthy young man and was asked to help his sister out financially. He was asked to loan her 100,000 pounds, but he refused and that caused an almighty row. During that row, the women claim, he assaulted them by pushing and shoving them.

“Both Jenny and Sharon are terribly upset over what happened. They did not want any publicity and the last thing they wanted to do was wreck his premiere evening. But they say he bullied them. They are both devastated that it has come to this but want him to be taught a lesson.”

In an interview before his film “The Dark Knight” was released, Bale admitted he has a bad temper.

Bale admitted that he was a difficult person to live and work with. He also seems to be having some problems with his wife.
