Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Flavin were a popular romantic couple from the 90s. After 25 years of marriage, Sly Stallone and his long-time wife are splitting after Jen filed for divorce. Now the veteran actor has spoken out after his wife Jennifer Flavin filed for divorce after 25 years.
Following the news that the pair are ending their marriage, reports emerged that it was down to disagreements over a new pet as Sly wanted to get a Rottweiler for protection while Jennifer did not. However, the 76-year-old actor denied the reports in a statement given to TMZ,
“We just went in different directions. I have the highest respect for Jennifer. I will always love her. She’s an amazing woman. She’s the nicest human being I’ve ever me”.
The Rocky star was recently spotted getting his tattoo of his wife covered up with one of his former pet Butkus, although the actor insisted that was due to his tattoo of Jennifer getting botched. Additionally, in his statement Sly reiterated his representative’s comment that he had other reasons for getting his tattoo covered up.
Sly explained that he was actually getting the Jennifer inking refreshed when it went wrong and had to be covered. He added that he still has a big tattoo of Jennifer on his back. It should be noted that despite their separation, the couple will remain involved in each other’s lives because they have three daughters together, Sophia, Sistine and Scarlet Stallone.
Meanwhile, the Stallone Family is set to have a reality television show that will debut on Paramount+ in December. Perhaps the show will give fans more insight on the split. Keep checking Thirsty for more updates.
