Sylvester Stallone Asks For Speculation Over Son's Sudden Death To Stop: [ send to a friend ]
Sylvester Stallone is asking for the speculation to stop regarding the sudden death of his son, Sage Stallone, who was found dead in his Los Angeles apartment on Friday.
"This is in reference to the speculation and questionable reporting surrounding the death of my son Sage," the actor says in a statement. "Because when a parent loses a child there is no greater pain."
"Therefore I am imploring people to respect my wonderfully talented son's memory and feel compassion for his loving mother Sasha, because 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," Stallone concludes.
The speculation about what caused the 36-year-old Sage's death began after Ed Winter of the Los Angeles coroner's office revealed prescription bottles were recovered from the apartment.
Although he did not say what the bottles contained or whether they had a role in Sage's death.
The final cause of death has been deferred for additional testing and should be known within six to eight weeks, as per the LAPD.
