Last week Sage Stallone, the son of Sylvester Stallone, was found dead at a home in Los Angeles.
After Sage’s death, rumors started circulating about how Sage died. Several reports came out that he was surrounded by liquor bottles and most likely overdosed on pills or committed suicide. An autopsy is currently being done on Sage and his father, Sylvester Stallone, is begging the media to stop speculating about his son’s death until the facts are known.
In a heartbreaking statement, Sly asked the media to stop “the speculation and questionable reporting” surrounding his son Sage Moonblood Stallone.
“When a parent loses a child there is no greater pain. Therefore I am imploring people to respect my talented son’s memory and feel compassion for his loving mother Sasha…. This agonizing loss will be felt for the rest of our lives…. Sage was our first child and the center of our universe and I am humbly begging for all to have my son’s memory and soul left in peace.”
The Daily Mail reports that an autopsy on Sage Stallone was completed yesterday but the results may not be known for a few more weeks. At the moment, the cause of death is unknown.
Sage Stallone’s final days also remain a mystery. His attorney and close friend George Braunstein said that Sage was happy and was planning to marry his girlfriend.
“He was very creative, energetic and very full of life. We were just joking about how he was going to get married and have a fun marriage. There was nothing dark or depressing, no problems, certainly no financial problems.”
Bruanstein added that Sage never drank or took drugs and that his death was most likely an accident.
“I never knew him to drink alcohol. I never saw him take drugs. I never knew of anything like that at all…. I’m going to wait to see what the coroner says. I think it was either natural causes or a terrible accident. I don’t think it had anything to do with drugs, he wasn’t that kind of guy. He wasn’t anyone trying to take his life.”
