  • L.A. District Attorney’s Office Reviewing Sex Crimes Case Against Sylvester Stallone

The Los Angeles District Attorney's office is reviewing a sex crime case against Sylvester Stallone, spokesman Greg Risling said Wednesday. Police didn't elaborate on the nature of the allegation.

CNN reported that Santa Monica Police say the alleged incident took place in the 1990s. But he told CNN that Stallone "categorically denied" the allegations. Media reports from previous year, however, outline at least two alleged incidents of sexual assault from his past.

Stallone broke his silence to Radar exclusively last December about the rape allegations against him, claiming that he was completely innocent and that the claims were false. He is free on $1 million bail, but must wear an ankle bracelet. The Daily Mail obtained a police report last November, detailing what allegedly went down.

Police in Santa Monica and Stallone's attorney, Martin Singer, could also not be reached for comment.


The increasing scrutiny on allegations against Stallone come in the wake of the #MeToo movement and reports about widespread sexual abuse allegedly perpetrated by Harvey Weinstein and other powerful men in Hollywood.

Sylvester Stallone on a recent visit to the White House. The outlets reported the teen said Stallone, then 40, forced her into a threesome with his bodyguard.

A woman claimed the action hero raped her decades ago and she filed a police report with the allegations in November. At the time, though, lawyer Marty Singer said Stallone had a brief relationship with the woman while shooting a movie in Israel in 1987.
