Sylvester Stallone And Wife Jennifer Flavin Are Getting Divorced

After 25 years of marriage, Flavin has filed for divorce!

Sylvester Stallone and his wife Jennifer Flavin are divorcing after 25 years of marriage. Flavin filed a petition “for dissolution of marriage and other relief” from Stallone last Friday in Palm Beach County, Florida. The 76-year-old Stallone and 54-year-old Flavin, who began dating in 1988 after meeting at a restaurant in Beverly Hills, California, were married in 1997.  Stallone and Flavin share three daughters: Scarlet, 20, Sistine, 24, and Sophia, 25.

News of the couple’s split comes just three months after they celebrated their silver wedding anniversary. At the time, Stallone captioned a photo carousel of the couple on Instagram in honour of their anniversary: “Happy 25th anniversary to my amazing wife. 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! Thank you sweetheart!”  However recently, Stallone fueled breakup rumours after he was photographed with a tattoo of his onscreen Rocky dog Butkus, covering up a tattoo of Flavin’s face he previously had on his arm.

After the divorce filing went public, Stallone said in a statement to People: “I love my family. We are amicably and privately addressing these personal issues.” 

Flavin issued her own statement to People: “I’m sad to announce that after 25 years of marriage I have filed for divorce from my husband Sylvester Stallone. While we will no longer be married, I will always cherish the more than 30-year  relationship that we shared, and I know we are both committed to our beautiful daughters. I ask for privacy for our family as we amicably move forward.”
