Sylvester Stallone Dog Tattoo – And Relationship
Before marrying Flavin, Sylvestor was married and divorced twice. From his first wife, Sasha Czack, Stallone had two children, Sage Moonblood Stallone and Seargeoh. The Rocky actor met Jennifer Flavin in 1988, following his two divorces and the two soon hit it off. In the early 1990s, Stallone left Flavin to be with Janice Dickinson, who was pregnant with Stallone’s alleged daughter. However, a paternity test revealed the contrary and the two split. Stallone and Flavin finally tied the knot in May 1997.
The pair happily married for over two decades and only recently celebrated their 25-year silver jubilee. Flavin and Stallone have three daughters together, namely Sophia (25), Sistine (24), and Scarlet (20).
Celebrating 25 Years of Togetherness
For years, the couple seemed to live happily together. For their 25th Anniversary, Stallone took to his Instagram to wish his wife on their 25th Anniversary.He captioned it,
“There are not enough words to describe what this incredibly selfless, dedicated, patient, the woman has meant to our lives, and I only wish they could be another 25! Thank you, sweetheart!”
Moreover, Jennifer Flavin also posted pictures of the two on her Instagram account and wished her husband a Happy 25th Anniversary. She stated,
“Happy 25th wedding anniversary to us! 🥰❤️❤️❤️ Thank you for always keeping me laughing, loving, and protecting our beautiful family!”
She further concludes her post by stating that their marriage keeps getting better and better each year.
Based on these adorable Instagram posts, no one could expect that there was trouble in paradise. Unfortunately, all was not as euphoriant as the pair made it out to be.
Jennifer Flavin Files for Divorce
After spending over three decades together (dating + married), the couple is finally calling it quits. 54-year-old Flavin filed a petition “for dissolution of marriage and other relief” from her 76-year-old husband, Stallone, on the 19th of August, 2022. The petition was filed in a court in Palm Beach County in Florida.
While talking to People magazine, Jennifer Flavin announced she filed for divorce from her husband, Sylvestor. She further added that although the pair would no longer share the marriage bond, she still treasures the past 30+ years of her life that she spent with the True Blood actor. Furthermore, Flavin asked that the media and fans provide her and her family privacy during these trivial times.
Further, Flavin shared a close-up picture of her hugging her three daughters and captioned it:
“The 4 of us forever”
All 3 of her daughters took to the comments section to express their love and support for their mother.
The International Boxing Hall of Famer chooses to keep his personal family life out of the media. Therefore, even in this regard, he decided to stay silent, for the most part. In a conversation with People magazine, the Rocky actor expressed his love for his family. He added that they are “privately” and “amicably” addressing their family issues.
Sylvestor Stallone Dog Tattoo
Amidst the constant media attention towards Stallone’s inevitable divorce, he gained attention through his latest tattoo. Sylvestor got her face tatted on his bicep in honour of his love for his wife. However, fans could not help but notice that the veteran actor covered up his wife’s face tattoo. The bicep now has the Sylvester Stallone dog tattoo instead.
While the actor did not directly comment on the change of tattoo, his publicist Michelle Bega came forth in support of him. She claimed that Stallone wanted to refresh the tattoo of Flavin. However, it did not work out as expected. As a result, he got the dog tattoo instead.
For those who do not know, this is not just any random dog tattoo. The bull mastiff dog, Butkus, is from the actor’s popular Rocky films. The actor got the tattoo to honour Butkus, who died due to heart disease.
While both Stallone and his publicists try to cover up the apparent ink replacement, fans are quick to connect the dots. Regardless, we hope and wish the couple the best in their new paths in life.
