Jennifer Flavin’s Divorce Filing That ‘blinded’ Her Husband, Sylvester Stallone

Sylvester Stallone is said to have been blindsided by the divorce filing of his wife Jennifer Flavin, which was filed on Aug. 19, as friends told Page Six that they appeared “so happy” together a few weeks ago.

It was revealed recently that the “Rambo” star has been filming his upcoming Paramount Plus series titled “Tulsa King” in Oklahoma City, and friends said the actress – his wife of 25 years – has been constantly present on the set.

On Aug. 18, Sly was in Oklahoma when the papers were filed, and sources said he was shocked when he heard of the news.

“You couldn’t think of a nicer couple… she’s been visiting him in Oklahoma City, where he’s been filming the show.

The way it sounded, everything seemed to be going well. According to a source who spoke to Page Six, “I have no idea what happened.

It is Flavin, 54, who filed a divorce petition in Palm Beach, Fla., where she and her husband own a home, who claims that her husband intentionally has dissipated, depleted, or wasted the assets of her marriage — and she demands that Stallone be prevented from selling or transferring any assets during the divorce process.

In spite of that, a source familiar with the case said: “I have no idea why Jennifer’s lawyers put this in the divorce petition, it’s just a pure lie, it’s so ridiculous.” Having said that, it is unlikely that Sly will sell as much as a T-shirt.

A representative of Stallone gave Page Six a statement on his behalf in which he said, “I love my family very much.

Currently, we are addressing these personal issues in an amicable and private manner.

According to a friend of Sylvester’s, Sylvester intended to work things out with Jennifer in order to make it work.

At the moment, I don’t know what will happen because she has decided to go public with everything, so I don’t know what will happen.”

It was reported by TMZ, however, that the couple split up after a big fight over a dog.

The 76-year-old Stallone is rumored to have wanted a new Rottweiler to provide “protection for their family,” however Flavin reportedly didn’t want another pet to add to their household.

There are reports that this led to “a very heated argument that brought up other issues” in their marriage, although it has been reported that these other issues were not seen as things that they would never be able to resolve.

However, Stallone ended up getting the pooch anyway, and he named him Dwight after the character he played in the hit film “Tulsa King”.

His Instagram account was used to promote the show earlier this month with a photo of him and Dwight the dog.

In the meantime, it was revealed on Tuesday that tattoo artist Zach Perez had posted a now-deleted Instagram photo showing Stallone getting an arm tattoo of Flavin covered with a tattoo of Butkus – the bullmastiff from the “Rocky” movies.

Apparently, Stallone and Flavin’s daughters – Sophia, 26, Sistine, 24, and Scarlet, 20 – have been filming a reality show together, which their father helped them get and is scheduled to premiere on Paramount+ in November.

In spite of this, a Hollywood source told Page Six: “Sly got them a reality show, but I don’t know what will happen to it now that it’s in the works.”

In addition to this, other industry insiders said that Flavin is not a big fan of Sly’s longtime publicist, Michelle Bega.

Flavin has asked for sole ownership of the $35 million Palm Beach mansion the couple bought in 2020, and has put down $5 million as a down payment towards the purchase.

According to, Stallone has a net worth of $400 million.

It is with great sadness that I must inform you that after 25 years of marriage, I have filed for divorce from my husband, Sylvester Stallone. In a statement released by Flavin, he said: “Although we will no longer be married, I will always cherish the more than a 30-year relationship that we shared, and I know that both of us are committed to our daughters.

Page Six requested a comment from her representative, but they did not respond to our request for comments.

The couple met at a Beverly Hills eatery in 1988, when Flavin was a 19-year-old aspiring model, while the actor of “The Expendables” was 42 years old and had been divorced twice.

It was apparent, however, that their relationship was not conventional in any way. According to Stallone, “When we come together, it is a wonderful thing.” Stallone said in 1991.

There are no strings attached to our separation when we are apart. That’s just the way it is. There are no strings attached.”

It wasn’t until a year later that Flavin said to the newspaper: “I’m not naive about what may happen when I’m not around – I can’t change the way he is because he’s a 45-year-old man.”.

Despite that, he is definitely not a cheating dog every single day of the week. As we spend five nights out of seven together, I don’t know where he would find the time to do that.”

It was, however, in 1994 that Flavin’s trust was shattered when Stallone broke up with her via a FedEx letter after model Janice Dickinson, with whom he had an affair, claimed that he was the father of her child.

After a DNA test revealed that the couple was not related, Stallone and Flavin patched things up and said “I do” in 1997.
