Sylvester Stallone will NOT be charged in 1990 rape case as two witnesses contradict accusers story
Stallone denied the accusation and filed a complaint against the woman, accusing her of lying on official document
Sylvester Stallone will not be charged for alleged rape of a woman, in a case that date back 30 years ago. The unnamed woman had filed a complaint in last December, claiming two sexual assaults by the actor in 1987 and 1990.
However, prosecutors shared that there were no witnesses who were able to confirm the claims made by the woman. As reported by TMZ, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office was able to determine that the evidence was not sufficient enough to charge the 'Rambo' actor.
Even though the 10-year statute of limitations had long expired in the case, authorities went ahead and investigated her claims. Stallone too filed a complaint against the woman, accusing her of lying on official document.
Sylvester admitted that he knew who the woman was and revealed that they had spent around 3 days together in Israel when they were working on a movie in the year 1987. It is likely that the film Stallone was referring to is 'Rambo III', part of which was filmed in Jaffa, which is near Tel Aviv. Stallone has denied the alleged rape claims though has never hinted at what the nature of their relationship was.
There is no evidence or record which match the claims made by the woman which say that she also met him at his office in the year 1990.
Last year, a report by DailyMail, revealed that there was a 1986 police report which was made by a separate woman against Stallone, and which claimed that the actor was in the same room in a hotel in Las Vegas when Stallone's bodyguard Michael 'Mike' De Luca forced the then 16-year-old to perform oral sex on him.
At the time, she told police in Las Vegas about the incident but did not press any charges. In the year 2013, De Luca was shot dead by the California police while at a traffic stop. During the time of the rape, De Luca was 27-years-old while Stallone was 40-years-old and the girl revealed she met both the men while she was staying in Las Vegas with some friends. Stallone was filming the movie 'Over The Top' at the time.
The girl also admitted to having consensual sex with Stallone in his hotel room while De Luca was in the bathroom. Post the incident, she claims that Stallone told her they "would have to beat her head in" if she spoke about the incident given that they were both married men.
The girl added that she did not pursue charges as she was 'ashamed.'
Stallone's representative denied her claims and accusations on his behalf. "This is a ridiculous, categorically false story. No one was ever aware of this story until it was published today, including Mr. Stallone. At no time was Mr. Stallone ever contacted by any authorities or anyone else regarding this matter," she said.
