Actor Sylvester Stallone has responded to the allegations of sexual abuse from an alleged incident in the 80’s involving a 16-year-old. According to one of Stallone’s representatives, the now 71-year-old star is denying any involvement in the matter.
„This is ridiculous, categorically false story. No one was ever aware of this story until it was published today, including Mr. Stallone.” States Mr. Stallone’s representative, Michelle Bega.
She added that the star was never contacted by the authorities regarding the incident nor by any other involved party.
Stallone’s response came just a day after the Daily Mail got hold of a police report that accused the Rocky actor and his bodyguard at the time, Michael De Luca, of forcing a minor into a threesome with them. According to the report, an employee of the hotel called the police when a friend of the girl let him know about her situation. The girl didn’t press charges at the time because she felt „humiliated and ashamed”.
The minor allegedly met with Stallone at the former Hilton Hotel in Las Vegas in 1986. The actor was shooting on location in Vegas for his movie Over The Top.
The girl, who was a hotel guest at the time, said she was introduced to Stallone through his co-star, David Mendenhall. She stated that Stallone sent De Luca to proposition her after she asked for the actor’s photograph. According to the report, that’s when De Luca gave the girl a key to Stallone’s rooms where she willingly had sex with the actor.
She then claimed Stallone asked her if she had ever had sex with two men at the same time. Before the minor could react to his question, the actor called his bodyguard, who was in the bathroom. According to the report, De Luca came into the room and the two men then took turns forcing her to perform oral sex on them and afterwards penetrating her.
The girl told the police that she wouldn’t have said anything if the encounter had been between her and Stallone. De Luca’s presence, however, made her feel uncomfortable and she said there was nothing she could have done at the time. After the incident, Stallone and De Luca allegedly told the girl to keep quiet or else they would „beat her head in”.
Stallone’s bodyguard, Michael De Luca, was killed by California police in 2013 during a traffic stop. Stallone was 40 while De Luca was 27 at the time of the alleged sexual encounter.
