It’s a sad day in the Stallone household. According to new reports, after 25 years of marriage, actor Sylvester Stallone and his wife Jennifer Flavin are getting a divorce.
According to USA Today, Flavin was the one who filed for divorce, asking the court for a “dissolution of marriage.” Flavin filed the papers in Palm Beach County on August 19.

In a statement, given to USA Today, Stallone addressed the rumors of his impending divorce through his representative. The 76-year-old said, “I love my family. We are amicably and privately addressing these personal issues.”
Back in May, the couple publicly celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary. Both took to Instagram to share kind words about each other.
“Happy 25th anniversary to my amazing wife. There [are] 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!”
As People revealed, Flavin wrote, in part, “Our marriage keeps getting better every year! I can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives together!” However, her post has since been deleted.
On August 10, Flavin shared a photo of herself with their three daughters, Sophia, 25, Sistine, 24, and Scarlet, 20. “These girls are my priority,” she wrote in the caption. “Nothing else matters. The 4 of us forever.”
All three of their girls commented on the photo. Scarlet commented with a heart emoji, while Sophia wrote, “You are our rock, cheerleader, and most incredible mom. We are so lucky to have you. Love you so much.”
And Sistine added, “Strongest woman I know.”
However as Yahoo! News pointed out, shortly before the news of their divorce went public, it was pointed out that Stallone had the tattoo he had in dedication to his wife covered up.
His rep also addressed the cover-up in a statement shared with The Daily Mail. “Mr. Stallone intended to refresh the tattoo image of his wife Jennifer; however, the results were unsatisfactory and, unfortunately, unfixable. Mr. Stallone loves his family. The Stallones are presently filming a reality show together which will debut on Paramount+.”
It’s unclear if the reality show will detail the demise of Sylvester and Jennifer’s marriage.
