Christian Bale — whose family had him arrested in July 2008 on assault charges after an incident at London’s Dorchester hotel — is unlikely to offer his sister Sharon any of his $60 million fortune, despite the charges later being dropped, because they have not spoken since, femalefirst.co.uk reports.
His sister Sharon, 42, faced a bankruptcy hearing at Bournemouth County Court, and is in the precarious financial situation because of a number of disastrous property investments.
“Christian doesn’t know about the bankruptcy. I wouldn’t expect him to help,” she says. “We don’t speak anymore. It’s totally his decision and it makes us all very sad. I started my own property investment company and made some mistakes.”
Bale’s 61-year-old mother Jenny — whose daughter now faces the possibility of losing her home — revealed they not had any contact with the actor for the past year.
“Sharon is in a pretty dire situation and has always tried her hardest to support her family,” says Bale’s mom. “We don’t have Christian’s current number and he doesn’t know anything about what’s happening.”
