Sylvester Stallone's Son, Sage Stallone, Found Dead; Autopsy Pending
Sylvester Stallone's son, Sage Stallone (pictured here with uncle Frank Stallone), was found dead in his home in Studio City, Calif. late last night. He was 36.
"There were a number of prescription bottles found at the scene but it did not appear to be suicide and no note was found," a source told RadarOnline.
Radar also reports that an autopsy is to take place as early as tomorrow, but results for toxicology reports (which are expected to be performed) will not be available for several weeks.
Sage was the owner of two movie companies, MoonBlood Pictures and Grindhouse Releasing, which restored and preserved old B-movies. A source told the New York Post that Sage was burdened with "financial problems" but refused to turn to his father for help.
Sylvester is, of course, the star of the Rocky franchise. His rep released the following statement: "Sylvester Stallone is devastated and grief-stricken over the sudden loss of his son Sage Stallone. His compassion and thoughts are with Sage's mother, Sasha. Sage was a very talented and wonderful young man. His loss will be felt forever."
Sylvester was attending Comic-Con in San Diego when he received the news.
