Sylvester Stallone’s Son Dies Of Reported Drug Overdose

Though he was pronounced dead on the scene Friday, Sylvester Stallone‘s 36-year-old son Sage had actually passed away three to four days earlier, TMZ reports.

Sage Stallone, who was Sylvester’s first child with ex-wife Sasha Czack, was discovered in his Los Angeles apartment July 13. Reportedly, he died from a drug overdose.

Sources say Sage lived like a “hermit” and “no one had spoken with him since a week ago Friday.” He “lived like” the reclusive Hollywood mogul Howard Hughes. Sage often spent days alone in his room, which was “littered with junk,” including cigarette butts, beer cans and food. A law enforcement source adds that Sage’s room was “disgusting” and reeked of various odors.

Shortly after the Rocky star learned of his son’s passing, he released a statement. “Sylvester Stallone is devastated and grief-stricken,” his rep said. “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.”

Sage followed in his father’s footsteps by making his big-screen debut as a teen in Rocky V, playing Rocky Balboa’s son, Robert. In 2006, he made his directorial debut with Vic.

Sage is survived by his two parents, brother Seargeoh, 33, and three sisters Sophia, 15, Sistine, 14, and Scarlet, 10.

    That is heartbreaking. What an awful loss for his family…

    He posted on his facebook a few hours before he died. Why don’t we wait for the autopsy before we label him a drug addict, shall we?

      I should say he posted on his facebook a few hours before he was FOUND dead, so odds are he was alive only a short time before being found.

        The authorities are saying that there’s no way, and that he’d been dead for days.;

    So sad. But it does sound as though Sage had a mental illness of some sort. hopefully his parents have aknowledge as much and did their best to help him. If I’m not mistaken, I believe that his brother Seargeoh also has a mental or physical disability as well. He may be autistic or mentally retarded. ?. Thankfully it seems as though Sly’s daughters are all healthy,…… so far. If feel so bad for Sly, but especially for Sasha, I remember when he dumped her (yeah I’m that old), and treated her poorly.
