Sylvester Stallone brings the family to Golden Globes red carpet
Sylvester Stallone has broken his silence on his recent marriage split.
It comes just hours after it was revealed that his wife Jennifer Flavin filed for divorce.
The Hollywood actor, 76, had been married to Jennifer, 54, for 25-years before their split.
In a statement through Stallone’s publicist on Wednesday, he said: “I love my family.
“We are amicably and privately addressing these personal issues.”

It came in stark contrast to a comment made earlier this week and after Jennifer had filed her court papers on Friday in which she states, “The marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken.”
Earlier this week, Stallone’s publicist insisted all was well and he had wanted to update his tattoo.
“Mr Stallone intended to refresh the tattoo image of his wife Jennifer however, the results were unsatisfactory and, unfortunately, unfixable,” Michelle Bega said.
“As a result, he had to cover the original image with a tattoo of his dog from Rocky, Butkus.

“Mr Stallone loves his family. The Stallones are presently filming a reality show together which will debut on Paramount+,” she added.
As well as handing the Rocky actor divorce papers, Jennifer has also reportedly accused the actor of moving assets from their shared marital funds.
The former model filed divorce documents in Florida on Friday, according to TMZ, after weeks of speculation their marriage was on the rocks.

The 54-year-old has allegedly requested sole domain over their home in Palm Beach ahead of their divorce proceedings.
In the divorce papers, obtained by TMZ, Jennifer claimed her husband Sylvester has been ‘hiding assets’.
The documents read: “Upon information and belief, the Husband has engaged in the intentional dissipation, depletion and/or waste of marital assets which has had an adverse economic impact on the marital estate.

“Pursuant to Section 61.075, Florida Statues, equity dictates that the Wife be compensated and made whole by receiving an unequal distribution of the marital assets in her favour.
“Moreover, the Husband should be enjoined from, selling, transferring, assigning, encumbering, or dissipating any assets during the pendency of proceedings.”
The Mirror has reached out to Sylvester’s representatives for comment.
