Sylvester Stallone under review for sex-crime allegations


Sylvester Stallone has recently come under the radar of LA prosecutors, who are currently reviewing a sexual assault complaint against the actor.

Although Stallone's attorney, Martin Singer, called this investigation “outrageous” because “it makes the public think that there’s something there," it is yet unclear what allegations the 71-year-old actor is facing.

The complaint was originally filed at the Santa Monica Police Department in November 2017, wherein the alleged sexual assault is dated back in the 1990s. In December, the Santa Monica Police Department was investigating a claim that Stallone raped a teenager in the 1990s, an allegation that the actor denied at the time, although he admitted to spending three days with the woman in Israel on a shoot in 1987.

In light of the recent developments, Greg Risling, a spokesman at the Los Angeles District Attorney's office said, "A case was presented today by the Santa Monica Police Department regarding Sylvester Stallone. It is under review by our sex crime task force." With scarce details available on the case, it is unclear if California's 10-year statute of limitations applies in the case.

This isn't the first time such allegations have been made against the Rocky actor. A 1986 police report had a 16-year-old alleging she was forced into a threesome with Stallone and his bodyguard Michael De Luca in Las Vegas. Stallone's spokesperson denied these rumours calling them "categorically false".
