Sylvester Stallone is the latest celebrity to be the victim of a cruel death hoax, according to the Mirror. Rumors ran wild last week that the Expendables star had passed away, yet Stallone was able to dismiss the rumors with a few carefully timed yet lighthearted selfies on his social media accounts, including some taken with his daughters.

Sylvester Stallone is regarded as one of the most successful action stars in Hollywood, and now his 19-year-old daughter Sistine Rose Stallone has aspirations to be one of the towering figures in the field of modeling.
Sylvester Stallone’s daughter is the latest amongst the numerous celebrity children who are taking baby steps to establish themselves in the glamorous world of fashion modeling. It was natural for Sistine Stallone to be attracted to modeling as Jennifer Flavin, her mother, was a successful model in her youth.
Recently, Sistine Stallone was spotted at the 73rd Venice Film Festival along with her mother, and the mother-daughter duo looked like sisters in their fashionable outfits. According to the Daily Mail, Sylvester Stallone’s daughter has proudly displayed her fashion sense while walking on the red carpet at a number of her father’s film premieres.
And she has already begun to make her mark as she has modeled for publications like Teen Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar Kazakhstan, and Express.
Apart from being the parents of Sistine Stallone, Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Flavin are also the happy parents of Sophia Rose Stallone and Scarlet Rose Stallone. It is clear that the Rocky actor, who plays a muscleman in movies, does not exhibit machoism in reality, as his personal life is very much dominated by women. While Sistine takes after her mother, Sophia, Sylvester’s eldest daughter, unquestionably takes after her father with regard to his likes and interests.
Sylvester Stallone’s wife once revealed in a magazine interview that Sylvester Stallone is especially fond of Sophia as she is not only a voracious reader like him, but she even displays the same gestures and has the same thoughts and feelings as her legendary father. In fact, Sylvester Stallone’s darling daughter has read the entire collection of Shakespeare’s works, a feat that has been earlier achieved by Sylvester Stallone himself.
Unlike many of his Hollywood counterparts, Sylvester Stallone proves to be a very protective parent who wants his children to pursue their university education under his watchful eye. According to the Daily Mail, Sistine Stallone spoke about how her parents have proven to be “bodyguard parents” in their personal lives.
“My parents would love to keep me near. They’re protective, and they want their little girl home.”
It seems natural for the Hollywood heavyweight to be so overprotective of his children, due to the painful losses and calamities that he has suffered in his personal life. In 2012, Sylvester Stallone tragically lost Sage Stallone, his 36-year-old son who died of a heart attack. That same year, Sophia had to undergo heart surgery that aimed to repair a defect in her heart’s functioning.
Like any doting father, Sylvester Stallone occasionally posts photos that show him enjoying good times with his daughters. Recently, the Rambo star posted a selfie on his social media accounts that showed him enjoying a quiet dinner with Sophia.
While it is not uncommon for Sylvester Stallone to share loveable photos with his fans, this particular selfie was posted at a time when there were rumors going around that suggested that the legendary actor had died. According to the Mirror, the rumor started doing the rounds when a fake news story posted on CNN’s website was shared by countless people around the world.
Fortunately the Creed actor took the cruel prank lightly and later posted a photo that featured the actor flashing his fists along with Sergey Kovalev, the Russian professional boxer.
Sylvester Stallone’s picture was a clear message to rumor-mongers that the Cliffhanger star intends to crush any false news regarding his death. Later, the legend posted the father-daughter photo on social media to drive home the message that life is beautiful, and he is enjoying it thoroughly to the fullest.
