Sylvester Stallone’s wife, Jennifer Flavin, has filed for divorce, Page Six can confirm.
Former model 54 filed papers to end her 25-year-old marriage to the Rocky Star, 76 in Palm Beach County Florida on August 19.
Court documents obtained by Page Six state that the marriage is “irretrievably broken” and note that Flavin is requesting assets accumulated during the union to be “equitably distributed” between them.
Flavin claims that Flavin is also the Rambo star has “engaged in the intentional dissipation, deplete and/or waste of marital assets”, which has negatively affected the “marital estate”. She’s requesting to be “compensated and made whole” by receiving more money than Stallone does from the estate.
Flavin wants to restore her maiden surname and also has exclusive rights to their Palm Beach marital property, Florida while Stallone is in California.
Stallone addressed the news Wednesday, telling Page Six: “I love my family. We are amicably and privately addressing these personal issues.”
Four days after Flavin’s filing, the actor made headlines for covering a large tattoo of his spouse’s face on his shoulder.
Stallone substituted ink from Butkus for the tribute, the well-known bull-mastiff of the Rocky movies.
Zach Perez, tattoo artist, posted the image on Instagram August 16 showing his cover-up.
“Greatest day in my tattoo career!!” he gushed. “Thank you for trusting me with your tattoo today @officialslystallone.”
Perez removed the slidehow from his Instagram feed after many people commented to the post asking whether Flavin was behind the move.
Stallone’s publicist, Michelle Bega, subsequently told the Daily Mail that the Oscar nominee “loves his family” and explained away the updated tattoo.
“Mr. “Mr. However, the results were unsatisfactory and, unfortunately, unfixable,” she told the newspaper. “As a result, he had to cover the original image with a tattoo of his dog from Rocky, Butkus.”
Flavin raised eyebrows before when she posted an image of Flavin hugging her daughters with Stallone. It was Sophia, 25; Sistine 24, and Scarlet 20.
“These girls are my priority nothing else matters,” the businesswoman, who notably no longer follows the Creed Instagram star captioned August 10, 2014 snap. “The 4 of us forever.”
Sistine commented: “Strongest woman I know.”
Flavin and Stallone were married in May 1997. This was almost 10 years after their first meeting at a restaurant.
Sasha Czack, the Golden Globe Winner from 1974-1985 and Brigitte Nilson (1985-1987) were previously his spouses. Czack and he had two sons, Sage (who died July 2012) and Seargeoh (43)
