Sage Stallone’s mother Sasha Czack has broken her silence since the death of her son. Czack is quick to defend her son’s honor, saying that a drug overdose isn’t as simple as what the press is making it out to be. The grey area that Czack is talking about is the claim that Sage might have over dosed on pain medications due to extensive dental work.
Czack claims that son Sage, the son she shares with actor Sylvester Stallone had five teeth pulled about two weeks ago, which made her warn Sage about the addictive nature of pills. Telling the NY Post, “I told him not to do that. I’ve heard about people dying having multiple procedures done to your mouth. Do not have more than one tooth [removed.]”
When Czack was asked whether or not she knew if Sage had actually taken pills for his pain, she was quick to defend her son’s intentions saying, “Wouldn’t you be?” In addition, according to a close friend who spoke with RadarOnline.com Sage was in good spirits and “seemed great” when he was last seen, and was planning to get married to his girlfriend.
In a statement released to TMZ, Sage’s father, actor, Sylvester Stallone has asked for compassion following the death of his son. “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 [Czack].” Stallone continued stating, “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.”
Sage Stallone was found on Friday in his Los Angeles home with pill bottles in the vicinity. He was 36 years old.
