Son of Sylvester Stallone..Sage..found dead at 36..”moonblood”
Hollywood star Sylvester Stallone has been left “devastated and grief-stricken” following the sudden death of his actor son, Sage.
Sage Stallone, 36, was found unresponsive in his flat in Studio City, near Hollywood, on Friday.
He was pronounced dead at the scene, amid some media reports of a medication overdose.
There was no sign of foul play or trauma, and no suicide note was found, a coroner said.
Sage Stallone appeared alongside his father at the age of 14 in Rocky V.
Bottles of prescription pills were recovered from the flat, but it was unclear what medication they contained or whether they were connected with the death, Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter said.
A post mortem examination will be performed in the next few days, but it will take several weeks before toxicology tests can be completed, Mr Winter told the Associated Press.
The website TMZ quoted unidentified sources as saying that Sage Stallone had died of an overdose of pills, and that the authorities were trying to find out whether it was accidental or intentional.
Sage Stallone’s lawyer, George Braunstein, said the body had been found by a housekeeper.
“He was in good spirits, and working on all kinds of projects… He was planning on getting married,” Mr Braunstein told the New York Post.
“I am just devastated. He was an extremely wonderful, loving guy. This is a tragedy.”
Sage Stallone appeared in several films and made his debut as Sylvester Stallone’s on-screen son in the 1990 film Rocky V.
He also acted alongside his father in the 1996 film Daylight.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Sage Stallone was the son of Sasha Czack and Sylvester Stallone. He was the brother of Seargeoh Stallone, and half-brother of Sistine, Sophia, and Scarlet Stallone. He came from a show business family. His uncle was actor and singer Frank Stallone, and his grandmother wasJackie Stallone. Jennifer Flavin was his stepmother, and his godfather was actor Joe Spinell. Stallone was of Italian, French and Russian-Jewish ancestry on his father’s side.
As a child, Sage Stallone had made a guest appearance on the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, brought by his grandmother Jackie Stallone, who promoted the series. Concerned about security, Sylvester Stallone refused to sign a release and demanded Sage be blanked from the syndicated version of the show.
He was married briefly to Starlin Wright. The childless marriage was annulled in 2008.
