Sean Bean was stabbed during a fight over a 22-year-old “model”


This story was more scandalous when I thought Sean Bean was still married to his fourth wife. I had forgotten that they split up last year, but whatever. I want to write about Sean Bean, who is The Sex. He’s also a rather sketchy dude, but by now you know that’s how I like ‘em. So… Sean has a new girlfriend, apparently. In Britain, they call her a “glamour model” which I think means that she poses naked for magazines and tabloids. Her name is “April Summers” and she’s 30 years younger than Sean (who is 52). Anyway, here’s the story: Sean got into a fight with some dude over April, and the dude STABBED Sean. And Sean was all “meh” and he went back into the bar and ordered another drink! This is the kind of guy I always go for, I swear.

He became known to millions as the rugged, hero soldier in historical drama Sharpe. And now actor Sean Bean has proven once and for all that his tough-guy image is not just fictional. The Daily Mail has learned that Bean was ‘stabbed’ in the arm following a row over a beautiful young model.

The four-time married star was apparently attacked outside the Hill Bar and Brasserie in Camden, North West London late on Sunday evening. Mr Bean was said to have a cut arm and a bruised face, according to witnesses. However, extraordinarily, he declined to attend hospital. Instead, the star walked back into the bar and, after staff gave him aid from a first aid kit, ordered another drink.

A member of staff said: ‘Sean is a regular here and we’ve never had any problems before. He was with a very attractive woman and an incident occurred outside the bar. He came in with a cut on his arm and a bruise on his eyebrow. We saw to his injuries with the first aid kit. He seemed ok and wanted to have another drink.’

The row began when Mr Bean, 52, and April Summers – a glamour model who is 30 years his junior who had gone to the bar with him – were standing outside, having a cigarette. Miss Summers – whose real name the Daily Mail understands is Nadia Foster – lives close to Mr Bean in the same area. According to witnesses, a passer-by then made lewd comments about Miss Summers, a topless model who has appeared in a number of UK lads’ magazines as well as the Italian edition of Playboy. As a result, Mr Bean followed the man down the road to challenge him.

Later in the evening, Mr Bean went out for another cigarette and was then attacked by a man. The star, who lives close by, was said to have been stabbed in the arm – believed to be with a broken glass – and punched in the face, according to witnesses. Police were then called.

Bean – who also appeared in Hollywood blockbuster Lord Of The Rings – divorced his fourth wife Georgina Sutcliffe last December after just two years marriage. They said they had found it intolerable to live together. Miss Sutcliffe – who Mr Bean had first met when she was working at one of his favourite bars – had also once accused Bean of assault but the charges were dropped.

Mr Bean – who originally hails from Sheffield, South Yorkshire – was first married to hairdresser Debra James, his teenage sweetheart. He then wed actress Melanie Hill, with whom he has two daughters Lorna, 23, and Molly, 19. They originally met at drama college RADA but divorced in 1997. He married Abigail Cruttenden, who he had met on the set of Sharpe, that November. They had a daughter Evie, now 12, before divorcing in 2000.

It is not known if Miss Summers is Mr Bean’s latest girlfriend.

The star – who first rose to fame as Mellors opposite Joely Richardson in a 1992 BBC production of Lady Chatterley’s Lover – told the Daily Mail last month how he continues to enjoy drinking. He said: ‘I like a good drink like the next man. But on my own terms. I feel a bit queasy at the thought of attending premieres and stuff. I’m not that social type. But if you court publicity you can’t complain if you get pestered. And I don’t want to be pestered. To be famous and seen in clubs and bars – is that it?’

The police had no comment to make on the alleged fracas. Mr Bean was unavailable for comment.

Miss Summers – who also lives close to the bar – said she was not injured in the incident. She told the Mail at her home last night: ‘I’m fine, it is a private matter. I don’t want to make any comment.’

It’s a pretty standard story of a liquor-soaked fight over a woman, only in this case I think the attacker wasn’t so much drunk as a knife-wielding misogynist, right? I guess the stab wound was no big deal, then? Sean didn’t need stitches, he just needed a stiff drink and a bandaid. Bless him. He should try to go out with someone other than a 22 year old “glamour model”. He should try me!

These photos are from Sean promoting Game of Thrones in Monte Carlo last week, plus one photo of this “April Summers” chick. Very sketchy.

    Wow….he makes Gerry Butler look like a choirboy! The chick reminds me of Blake Lively…lol!

  2. RocketMerry says:

    Meh. She looks like the average overly made up, overly hairbleached and overly tanned girl that taste-less men go for.
    She makes me think a little less of Boromir.

  3. Quest says:

    These twenty-somethings sure do look old for their actual age..or are they lying about their age. I hope they are

  4. Gwen says:

    It’s a shame he’s got such a bad way about women. He’s such a good actor and looks great too.

  5. Shay says:

    I disagree about him being ‘The Sex’. That may have been the case years and years ago, but after his years with alcohol, I doubt he can live without Viagra.
    I don’t see the controversy behind the woman’s age. They both have the same mental age and, I bet, intellect.
    Men like him are not only emotionally blunted, but they are dumb to boot. Unfortunately, Darwin’s theory of natural selection, didn’t really consider this reality. That men like Sean Bean have more chances to reproduce, which kind of craps on Darwin’s logic doesn’t it? Because if future generations rely on men like him, then what hope is there for humanity or what hope was there for humanity, but even so, humanity has progressed. I don’t know, I’m thinking there is really something up with Darwins’ view.

  6. Praise St. Angie! says:

    he looks pretty good in these pics…usually he looks much more ragged when I see him. and that chick looks like LOHAN! AGGGHHHH!

    I can’t help but think of a different “Bean” every time he’s referred to as “Mr. Bean”, though.

  7. Micki says:

    So, I don’t care about Fassbender, there’s a sort of friendly equanimity towards Gerard Butler but I’ll QUEUE for Sean Bean

  8. Grandizer says:

    She obviously has no problem with the age difference, and at his age, he is FLATTERED to be seeing someone that young. EVERYONE knows they are not seeing each other to talk about politics or religion or philosophy.
    They are seeing each other to put / keep their names, their brand in the forefront of the people, the masses.

    In my opinion, he could do far worse. She is a hottie.
    And she could do worse as well, he is not ugly.

  9. BW says:

    I read that bar name as the “OvertheHill Bar and Brassiere.”

  10. MarenGermany says:

    wow. I always liked him, and I was about to upgrade him mentally hearing that story until I saw the picture of his girlfriend.
    meh…pretty bad taste. she looks beautiful but somewhat like a trashy famewhore. he could do SO much better.

  11. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    I didn’t even recognize him as Ned Stark until you said Game of Thrones! I just don’t see the hotness. However, I love me some Jason Momoa (sic), Kahl Drogo from GOT. Lisa Bonet is at least 10 years his senior and she still bagged him. So jealous!

    Jason Momoa for HGF!

  12. Kimble says:

    Blokes this age fighting outside a pub and chasing a bit of 22 year old skirt? So embarrassing and super skeevy!

    I’ll bet his kids are proud …

  13. DanDan says:

    I really liked his performance in GOT. Great actor, bad person? :-(

  14. Roma says:

    Yes, Jason Momoa! Jason Momoa!

    I used to find Sean Bean the hotness but Ned Stark has to be the stupidest man on tv (has anyone seen the meme?) and for some reason that has killed it for me.

    Edit: And Aidan Gillen for HGF. I’ve loved him since the Wire.

  15. snappyfish says:

    Always liked him, she just seems generic…What in the world do they ‘talk’ about as she looks as dim as a 20 watt bulb.

  16. Violet says:

    I don’t know what kind of father he is, but he and Kelsey have interchangeable girlfriends. Both of them have turned into dirty old men.

    Good actor, what a shame he’s got the emotional IQ of a houseplant.

  17. dread pirate cuervo says:

    He doesn’t look too much like the Sex here, but give me “Patriot Games” Sean Bean & I will forget I only like brunets.

  18. Circe says:

    I’m pretty sure he’s an asshole, but at least he’s a badass asshole, not the wimpy kind who bleats about being treated badly at every opportunity.

  19. Kiska says:

    He USE to be a hot number but now he’s just an old bloated drunk. Tis a shame.

  20. foozy says:

    now here’s a sexy guy… him!

  21. TG says:

    I have never heard of this guy, but I am a new fan. Getting stabbed over a whore and then going back in to order a drink is awesome. What a rake. But he needs to find more attractive women this chick isn’t worth it.

  22. bluhare says:

    @dread pirate: Yes!!! The terrorist in Patriot Games. He was so hot the screen in my movie theatre sizzled.

  23. Christine says:

    I get it. I get him. I wish I could get him. He is hot.

  24. rosmarina says:

    Damn. I’ve always loved this guy, and agree completely that he is THE SEX. But what a sleazeball! Sigh, I guess I’ll just think of him as whatever character he’s playing. Ned Stark’s a good one – integrity and honor mean a lot to him. The books are fantastic, by the way.

  25. really says:

    Daddy wants to play hard!

  26. stella says:

    The alcohol is killing his face. Knight in shining armor is he? The girl is pretty in a fake way but way too young for this old geezer.

  27. Lizzie B says:

    He’s well known in the UK for beating up his wives. Every one of them. And that’s why they get divorced. Plus I don’t think he can keep it in his pants.

    He’s one of those guys whose characters are hot but he’s a wife-beating shithead so I wouldn’t touch him with a bargepole.

  28. Mairead says:

    Micki – get in line girl! God love him, but he is as skeevy as hell. I’ve fancied him something rotten for years, but he would make a terrible boyfriend and is a rotten husband. He puts his football team above all family relationships; always has, always will.

    Roma: you must watch the original “Queer as Folk” from the UK. ;) And if you can get it, the series Love+Hate with himself and Robert Sheehan.

  29. gobo says:

    He is The Sex. And badass. I like to think of him as being a great lay but dude is not and never has been boyf material.

  30. Ari says:

    I love him so much. That broad definitely is…not worthy. But if that’s his type he might have dropped on the sexy factor for me :L


  31. lemniskate67 says:

    she’s a pornstar. Look her up on wikipedia.

  32. ShirlyMay says:

    Now that is a real man.
    I was talking to a guy at work that was moaning like a girl because he thought the little scratch he had was going to leave a scar.
    I wanted to ask him if he was cranky because he was expecting his period!

  33. Jilly Bean says:

    loves Eddard Stark!!!!!!!!!!!!

    GAME OF THRONES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  34. Boromir's bytch says:

    That’s my boy!

    He doesn’t change, it’s just the same old, same old. Accept and move on. (kinda sad though, eh?)

  35. Gossip Owl says:

    He may be 52 but I would so leave feathers in his bed given the opportunity. My only request is to give him a role where he doesn’t die!!!!!

  36. Charlotte says:

    As a woman who has a friend dying in a hospital right now from xerosis of the liver/kidneys due to excess drinking, I feel the need to wish he would cool it a little bit.

  37. I am Legend says:

    He USE to be a hot number but now he’s just an old bloated drunk. Tis a shame.

    …and apparently an asshole to boot. Next!

  38. chris says:

    Your taste in men is gross. You say horrible things about women and yet this borderline pedophile is hawt stuff. I don’t get it. Ewww..

  39. Rep says:

    The chick reminds me of that Heidi chick from the Hills….

  40. jemshoes says:

    Boromir always did have issues.

  41. pato says:

    he´s 52?? still hot, too bad he´s an idiot.
    LOL @Shay excellent post! LMAO

  42. Laura says:

    She actually made a comment about this? I ‘m surprised as most of these glamour models aka oxygen thieves we have here in the UK have yet to master the basics of speech! Hence taking their clothes off and sleeping with footballers/actors/singers for a living…

  43. blackangel says:

    Sean really had me going. The heartbreak in Dec., over the divorce, only to start nailing this chick in Jan. Must have been really broken up over Georgina, huh? Actually felt sorry for him at one point. Oh, and April, you don’t flaunt yourself naked all over the world and then get upset when a guy in a bar says something rude. No wonder Sean had to come to her rescue, she’s left herself wide open for such harassment. Now she has “plans to go global”? Wonder who’s the sugar-daddy going to pay for that? On the upside, his daughters must be thrilled with their new playmate.

  44. blackangel says:

    Okay, maybe my last comment was a little too bitchy. But, let me say this. Never will forget the day I fell in love with Sean Bean. National Treasure — don’t ask. But now, sadly, I shall never forget the day I fell out of love with him either. Or the reason. Today; April Summers. What a shame. 22 is 2 young. Still thinks he looks a little sad though. Around the eyes. Maybe its just me.
