Sylvester Stallone responded to estranged wife Jennifer Flavin’s divorce filing, denying any wrongdoing regarding their marital assets.
The “Rocky” star denied her allegations that he “engaged in the intentional dissipation, depletion and/or waste of marital assets which has had an adverse economic impact on the marital estate,” documents, seen by People, state.
Stallone’s legal team also affirmed that the movie star has “not engaged” in that type of behavior.
Stallone, 76, approved of Flavin’s request to have “exclusive use” of their Palm Beach, Fla., estate. He also did not fight Flavin’s petition to restore her maiden name; however, he did agree that their marriage was “irretrievably broken.”
“I love my family. We are amicably and privately addressing these personal issues,” a rep for Stallone previously told Page Six in statement on his behalf.
Flavin, 54, filed for divorce from Stallone in Palm Beach County on Aug. 19 after 25 years of marriage, court documents obtained by Page Six showed.
“We did not end the relationship on such a trivial argument,” the “Tulsa King” star told TMZ, although he did concede that the couple disagreed over “how to care for the dog” given they often travel and live in two homes.
While the exact reason for the split is unknown, sources later told Page Six exclusively that Stallone was “blindsided” by Flavin’s divorce filing.
“You couldn’t think of a nicer couple … she’s been visiting him in Oklahoma City, where he’s filming. It sounded like everything was great. I have no idea what happened,” one source told Page Six.
