A Body Blow
In July of 2012, Sylvester's son Sage Stallone was found dead in his home in Studio City, Los Angeles. He had already been dead for at least three days when police discovered his body. Despite speculation about possible drug abuse, an autopsy found that the 36-year-old had died of a heart attack resulting from atherosclerosis. A month later, Sly's half-sister Toni-Ann Filiti died of lung cancer. News recently broke that Sylvester paid her millions of dollars over the years to settle allegations that he had abused her. Stallone's mother, Jacqueline, claims the settlement was a result of a "shakedown," not abuse on the part of Sylvester.
