Los Angeles - Christian Bale is giving up racing motorbikes to put his wife at ease. 

The American Hustle star is a huge enthusiast of two-wheelers and although he's cut back on stunt work for his films his wife, Sibi Blazic, wants him to quit outright. 

A source told National Enquirer magazine: "Sibi has always had a problem with Christian's love of fast bikes. She stopped him from riding them on the streets shortly after the birth of their daughter Emmaline, eight years ago. Since then, Christian has limited his riding to the race track under very controlled conditions."

However, Christian, 39, hurt his arm in a December 2012 accident and Sibi was said to be rocked by the recent death of Fast and Furious star Paul Walker in horrific car accident, and is now insisting her husband give up fast bikes for good. 

The source added: "Sibi doesn't want Christian racing at all, and that's going to be a real struggle for him ... As tough as it is for him, Christian is going to quit racing for her. She rules the household and his attitude is, she's the boss."
