No love lost: Sylvester Stallone covers up second Jennifer Flavin tattoo following divorce petition
Sylvester Stallone is searching for other ways to exclude his ex-wife from his life, starting with his tattoos. Even though the divorce hasn't yet been legally finalized, a second tattoo that originally paid homage to Jennifer Flavin has been covered up by the actor.
Photos of the actor with a brand-new tattoo of a vividly colored leopard face on his left arm appeared on Page Six on Tuesday. Sylvester has already had the area around his eyes tattooed. He revealed a new tattoo earlier this year that included the dog from his Rocky persona and covered up a picture of his wife's face.
After 25 years of marriage, news surfaced in August that Jennifer and Sylvester filed for divorce. The former claimed her husband had engaged in “the intentional dissipation, depletion and/or waste of marital assets which has had an adverse economic impact on the marital estate," court documents reveal.
According to Florida law, a spouse often brings these charges if the other spouse overspent or took out loans against the marital estate.
Jennifer is requesting the majority of control over their estate. She wants Sylvester to be “enjoined from, selling, transferring, assigning, encumbering, or dissipating any assets during the pendency of these proceedings." She demands "unequal distribution" of their assets and sole use of their 2020 purchase of their primary residence in Florida.
Since Jennifer filed for divorce, there have been several rumors. Sylvester, however, refutes her claims in the document sent by his legal team, claiming that he "has not engaged" in the conduct alleged. He didn't object to the divorce in his statement to the court but disputed having to pay her attorney's expenses. Their bond was "irretrievably broken," he said. The circumstances that caused the couple's breakup are still unknown.
After Sylvester's initial tattoo cover-up, there was one idea that went about - that the new dog was to blame. Apparently, he and his wife couldn't agree on how to take care of the rottweiler. Sylvester later clarified to TMZ that the claims weren't accurate. "We did not end the relationship on such a trivial argument," he said.
Sylvester and Jennifer dated on and off starting in the late 1980s. They ultimately got married in 1997 and have three children.
