Sylvester Stallone’s Wife Jennifer Flavin Files for Divorce After 25 Years of Marriage

by Suzanne Halliburton

Sylvester Stallone and his wife, Jennifer Flavin, are calling it quits. And the court documents suggest the divorce could get nasty.

TMZ reported the news, Wednesday. The site says Flavin accused her husband of moving money away from their mutual accounts. Flavin said Stallone diverted the money to his personal ones.

TMZ said Flavin filed for divorce from Sylvester Stallone on Friday. Her attorneys filed the paperwork in a Florida court. The court docs made these accusations. Stallone “engaged” in transferring, deleting or wasting marital assets. Flavin’s attorneys said Stallone’s maneuvering has had an “adverse economic impact on the marital estate.” Flavin wants to be compensated and made whole.

Fans have been all abuzz about a potential breakup after they noticed Sylvester Stallone had changed the tattoo of his wife and tried to replace with ink of his dog, Butkus.

Closer Weekly first reported the divorce news. And it noted that Flavin dropped a huge hint on Instagram earlier this month about the state of their marriage. For what it’s worth, Flavin doesn’t follow Sylvester Stallone on Instagram. She posted a beautiful photo of herself with the couple’s three daughters. The caption probably gave it away.

“These girls are my priority, nothing else matters. The 4 of us forever. She used some heart emojis and the hashtags #truth #family #forever,

Sylvester Stallone, Jennifer Flavin Dated for 8 Years Before They Married

When fans noticed that the Sylvester Stallone tattoo of Flavin looked different, the divorce rumors started escalating. Then a representative of Stallone’s tried to quash the talk. In hindsight, it’s not a good look. A rep told the Daily Mail: “Mr. Stallone intended to refresh the tattoo image of his wife Jennifer however the results were unsatisfactory and, unfortunately, unfixable.

“As a result, he had to cover the original image with a tattoo of his dog from Rocky, Butkus. Mr. Stallone loves his family. The Stallones are presently filming a reality show together which will debut on Paramount+.”

Stallone met Flavin in 1988. He’d already reached superstar status with the Rocky franchise. He’d also been married and divorced twice before he began dating Flavin, a successful model. He came into the marriage as a father of two sons he had with first wife, Sasha Czack. He and Brigitte Nielsen also were married from 1985-87.

After the two met, Sylvester Stallone and Flavin were an on and off couple for eight years. Then came the birth of oldest daughter Sophia Rose in 1996. The two married the next year. Back in May, Stallone didn’t reveal any marital woes when he offered very public words of love and respect to honor his wife for their 25th wedding anniversary.

“Happy 25th anniversary to my amazing wife,” Stallone wrote. “There is not enough words to describe what this incredibly selfless dedicated , patient, woman has meant to our lives and I only wish they could be another 25!”

Stallone worked all summer on his new show, Tulsa King, for Paramount+. The series premieres in November.
