Was Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Flavin divorce drama staged? Family signs up for Kardashian-style show
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Following his announcement in August to split from former model Jennifer Flavin after more than two decades of marriage, actor Sylvester Stallone's personal life has been splashed across newspapers and online media. While fans were just coming to terms with this shock separation, Stallone surprised everyone after he and Flavin were spotted together and then news of them trying to make their marriage work again began doing the rounds. However, the timing of the separation and reunion is suspect according to FEMAIL.
It is reported that Stallone and his family have been filming their own 'Kardashians'-style family reality show since August, the same month that his wife filed for divorce. This surprise split and reunion have all aspects of a story made for television. The story appears to revolve around an old Hollywood legend with beautiful model daughters who suffers a painful public divorce from his much-loved wife of 25 years before they come back together in dramatic fashion. Stallone, 76, caused drama when it was reported he covered up two tattoos of Flavin's face and eyes after his 54-year-old wife filed for divorce. He replaced the inking on her face with a picture of his late bull mastiff dog Butkus, while the artwork on her eyes was changed into a snow leopard. People had expected their relationship would be one of the few marriages to endure time and the spotlight, but it appeared to be very dramatic.
Cut to one month after Flavin's filing for separation, the couple reunited as if nothing happened. It was a love drama deserving of its own TV series. Just when it seemed as though it was splitsville for the couple Stallone started posting several heartwarming throwback photos of himself and Flavin. This led fans to believe that there may be hope for the couple. Images then showed the on-again, off-again, on-again couple looking every inch the loving husband and wife. The 'Rocky' star even said that his family was his focus in the wake of the divorce filing, and that they would be 'privately addressing' their 'issues'. "'I love my family,' he said via his publicist. "We are amicably and privately addressing these personal issues." So, was all of that marital strife and separation and accusations about Stallone being “engaged in the intentional dissipation, depletion and/or waste of marital assets" impacting their property, just for the TV screens?
Stallone and Flavin's relationship drama has certainly increased interest in the family's reality series. Sly has confirmed that he and his family have signed up for a reality show, produced by the same company that runs the hit TV show 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' and it will be aired on Paramount+. The actor was spotted making this admission in an Instagram video posted by his brother Frank Stallone.
While details of the show are still under wraps, in light of the association with the makers of the Kardashian reality series, one could expect that the Stallone family drama is likely to contain the same ups and downs and made-for-TV events that Kris Jenner and her daughters are known for. One may also get to see a glimpse of the luxurious life and influential friends and other personal family drama that once catapulted the Kardashian sisters to stardom being imitated in Stallone's reality series.
His daughters have already made their mark in the fashion and acting industry. Stallone's 25-year-old daughter Sistine is a fascinating newcomer to the acting world. She counts 'Midnight in The Switchgrass' co-starring Bruce Willis and Megan Fox and horror film ‘47 Meters Down: Uncaged' in 2019 as part of her filmography. Modeling is also something that Sistine does since she made her runway debut at age 17 in 2016, with a contract with IMG. She's walked the runway for Chanel, shot campaigns for Dolce & Gabbana and has been featured in magazines like Glamour, Elle Russia, Town and Country and Harper’s Bazaar.
Sophia, 26, Sly's oldest daughter, has worked for iconic brands such as Samantha Vega and Dolce & Gabbana. She has also appeared on shows like 'Access Hollywood', 'Entertainment Tonight', 'Home and Family' and 'Late Show with David Letterman'. She was also a guest judge on the fashion reality show 'Project Runway' for its episode “Client on the Go”. Rather than becoming an actress, Sophia plans to become an entrepreneur. The Hollywood Reporter reports that she is inspired by Kylie Jenner and even wants to debut her own fashion line and make-up line. Sophia is also a successful social media influencer. Sophia and Sistine also co-host the podcast Unwaxed. Together, the sisters have over three million Instagram followers.
The youngest Stallone, Scarlet, made her screen debut at the age of eight in the 2010 documentary 'Inferno: The Making of The Expendables', alongside her father. Her debut film was 'Reach Me', which also starred her father, at the age of 12. Although she has appeared in TV shows like her sisters, Scarlet has not acted in any other film since. She has 800,000 Instagram followers and often posts images of her opulent lifestyle. There is no doubt that Rocky's three gorgeous girls will compete with their parents for screentime, regardless of the potential romance highs and lows.
