Sylvester Stallone came out to defend himself against the allegations levied toward him and his bodyguard, Mike De Luca. Celebrity Insider reported last month that a woman claims Stallone and De Luca raped her in 1986 when she was just 16-years-old.
In response, Stallone and De Luca’s team wrote an official statement denying the accusations, and since then, Sylvester has addressed the claims personally.
As you may know, the woman in question accused Stallone and De Luca of “intimidating” her into a threesome over thirty years ago.
The bodyguard, De Luca, allegedly told her he would “beat her head in” if she didn’t comply; a charge the two men vociferously deny.
The woman – who was a teenager at the time – claims the incident took place back in Las Vegas, and she even filed a police report but eventually chose not to press charges.
She claims they met while Stallone was on the set of Over The Top. Additionally, the woman claims the police told her not to “tell anyone” because both men were married at the time.
When speaking with Radar Online on the 29th of December, Stallone said “that never happened,” and she was merely attacking the innocent.
He claims this “sullies” their “reputations.” Stallone said no one has to “make things up.” Reportedly, the Daily Mail published the police report and shared her experience back in November.
However, the authenticity of the story is unestablished. Stallone is just one of many men to be accused of such charges in the last three months. The charges follow the cascade of accusations amid the Weinstein scandal which prompted the social media movement, “#MeToo.”
