Sage Moonblood Stallone, 36-year-old son of Sylvester Stallone, is dead — the victim of an apparent overdose.
Sylvester’s publicist reportedly described him as “devastated and grief-stricken,” saying the Hollywood superstar’s thoughts are with Sage’s mom, Sasha Czack, Sylvester’s first wife.
Sage and Sylvester starred together in Rocky V, with father and son recreating their real-life relationship as Rocky and Robert Balboa.
The tragic news comes just one day after Sylvester appeared at Comic-Con to promote Expendables 2.
A friend says Sage seemed “healthy and upbeat” two weeks ago, and his lawyer tells the L.A. Times that Sage was not troubled. This is sad news indeed.
