Struck with the unimaginable tragedy of having to bury a child, Sylvester Stallone has sadly lost his son, Sage Moonblood Stallone, who passed away at the young age of 36-years-old on Friday. First reported by TMZ, 36-year-old Sage is said to have been found unresponsive by a housekeeper who called police to the residence at 2:17 p.m. PT.
With initial reports indicating that Sage – whom Sylvester fathered with ex-wife Sasha Czack – died from a prescription drug overdose, LAPD Commander Andrew Smith cautioned the media and public from rushing to conclusions, explaining, “It could have been a heart attack or a stroke.” Meanwhile, Sylvester, who’s understandably said to be a “wreck” at the current time, released a grief-stricken statement through his rep reading, “Sylvester Stallone is devastated and grief-stricken over the sudden loss of his son Sage Stallone. His compassion and thoughts are with Sage’s mother, Sasha. Sage was a very talented and wonderful young man, his loss will be felt forever.”
Echoing the complimentary words was Sage’s attorney, George Braunstein, who told People magazine, “(Sage) was full of life, a wonderful, loving person. The last time I talked to him a few days ago he was saying he was getting married, he had a lot of things he was working on and seemed very enthusiastic. There was no indication there was any problem.”
