Today we have woken to the devestasting news that Sylvester Stallone’s son Sage has died.
Following on from a great Comic-Con appearance alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger promoting Expendables 2, Stallone received the news that his 36 year old son was found dead at his apartment in Hollywood.
Sources claim that Sage likely passed away following an overdose of pills, which were found at his home, but it is currently unclear if his death was a suicide or accidental.
An LAPD spokesperson confirmed that Sage was found dead alone after police carried out a “welfare check” when someone couldn’t establish contact with him.
Sage made his acting debut opposite his father in “Rocky V,” playing the role of Rocky’s son Robert Balboa.
He appeared with his dad again in “Daylight,” and then went on to direct, produce and write.
Stallone issued a statement through his rep Michelle Bega which read: “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.”
We send our condolences to the Stallone Family
