Sylvester Stallone’s wife Jennifer Flavin files for divorce after 25 years of marriage

Jennifer Flavin, 54, filed a petition “for dissolution of marriage” Friday in Palm Beach County, calling the marriage “irretrievably broken”.

In a new statement via People mag, Flavin shared, “I’m sad to announce that after 25 years of marriage I have filed for divorce from my husband Sylvester Stallone. While we will no longer be married, I will always cherish the more than 30-year relationship that we shared, and I know we are both committed to our beautiful daughters.” Adding “I ask for privacy for our family as we amicably move forward.”

The signs have been there for a while, what with Stallone’s public outbursts at ‘Rocky’ producer Irwin Winkler, for not sharing the rights to the iconic films, blatantly naming Winkler responsible for not having anything to leave to his children. Maybe he’s been known for a while that a divorce would take him for everything he’s got.

Flavin is accusing her husband, who is worth a reported $400 million, of hiding and moving marital assets. As yet, there has been no mention of a prenuptial agreement.

According to the legal documents obtained by extra, Flavin claims, “Upon information and belief, the Husband has engaged in the intentional dissipation, depletion and/or waste of marital assets which has had an adverse economic impact on the marital estate. Pursuant to Section 61.075, Florida Statues, equity dictates that the Wife be compensated and made whole by receiving an unequal distribution of the marital assets in her favor. Moreover, the Husband should be enjoined from, selling, transferring, assigning, encumbering, or dissipating any assets during the pendency of proceedings.”

In May, the couple celebrated their 25th anniversary. Stallone wrote “Happy 25th anniversary to my amazing wife, there is 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!” 

‘Wish’ there could be another 25? Yes, it seems the signs have been there all along. 

Flavin also shared the milestone “Happy 25th wedding anniversary to us! Thank you for always keeping me laughing, loving and protecting our beautiful family! Our marriage keeps getting better every year! I can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives together!” People mag noted that the former model later deleted the post. 

Stallone has released a statement, “I love my family. We are amicably and privately addressing these personal issues.”

Stallone and Flavin got married in 1997 and share three daughters: Sophia, 25, Sistine, 24, and Scarlet, 20. In an Instagram post on Aug 10th, Flavin shared a telling post, 

These girls are my priority ❤️ nothing else matters. The 4 of us forever🤍🙏🏻 #truth #family #forever,” she wrote.

Sophia replied, “You are our rock, cheerleader, and most incredible mom. We are so lucky to have you.”

“Strongest woman I know,” Sistine commented.

Scarlet responded with a heart emoji.
