My piece on Stallone for Daily Beast:
A friend of the family fumed, “[Statements like Filiti’s] are vicious lies, being told by people who have an agenda and who positively do not know anything about any relationship between them. They weren’t there. This is so heartbreakingly hurtful that people are speaking to the media with a determination to slander and destroy.”
Indeed, this reporter once had dinner with Stallone several years ago, and the actor spent the evening bragging about his wife and children—including Sage. At the time Stallone was in a slow spell in his career, but instead of worrying about his next role he seemed to revel in his downtime as it allowed him to spend more time with his children.
