According to Jennifer Flavin’s claims, another reason for the divorce seems to be Sylvester Stallone financial wrongdoings in his marriage. She believes that her husband had presumably “engaged in the intentional dissipation, depletion and/or waste of marital assets which has had an adverse economic impact on the marital estate.”
Thus, she has exclusively requested:
