Sylvester Stallone’s Son Found Dead at Age 36, No Foul Play Expected.
Sage Stallone, the son of Sylvester Stallone was only 36 years old. The son of the legendary action hero was found dead and reports say that there was prescription bottles recovered.
=>TVST: That does not mean he overdosed, or committed suicide, it just means that he had a prescription for something. By saying that they were there, it just makes an already interesting story juicier.
Friends of Sage had not heard from him in the last day and began to get concerned. The housekeeper found his body Friday afternoon.
Stallone’s publicist Michelle Bega released a statement on the actors behalf,
“Sylvester Stallone is devastated and grief-stricken over the sudden loss of his son, His compassion and thoughts are with Sage’s mother, Sasha.”
WERE THERE SYMPTOMS OF SUICIDE?
So far there has been none. Sage who acted in movies “Daylight” and “Rocky V” with his father had a bright career and life ahead of him. He was planning on getting married for the first time and had frequent requests to work on films .
Sage’s attorney of the last 15 years, George Braunstein, describes his client as,
“He was a full of life filmmaker with his whole future ahead of him, He was just very up and enthusiastic and positive.
Sage Moonblood Stallone is the older of two sons that Sylvester had with his first wife Sasha Czack.
Sly and Sasha’s other son Seargeeoh is autistic and now 31 years old. The children were born at a time where it was easy to shield Sheargeeoh and Sage from the media coverage that an autistic child would receive today. Stallone took an active role in trying to insure that Sage stood on his own and helped him in dealing with having an autistic brother. In a People magazine interview in 1985 Sly Stallone said in regards to raising Sage,
“Sage needs to learn that he can be bigger and better than I am. I really want to develop single-minded-ness in him. He should never introduce himself saying, ‘My father is…’ I am also trying to help him develop physically with weights and exercise. I want him to be able to handle himself. He will have encounters just because he is Rocky’s kid.”
In regards to having a younger brother with Autism and dealing with it, Sylvester Stallone told his son,
“Listen, God and nature made him different. We have to accept Seargeoh the way he is and understand that his way is just more quiet and reserved.”
