Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Flavin attend Golden Globes in 2018

Sylvester Stallone has been seen for the first time since wife Jennifer Flavin filed for divorce.

The Rocky star failed to crack a smile as he was snapped at the screening of his new movie Samaritan in New York City.

Sylvester looked glum as he stood in front of the film poster in a smart dark navy blue suit, complete with a button-down shirt and shiny shoes.

The 76-year-old then shook hands and met some of his mesmerised fans who weren’t expecting to see the star at the AMC Empire 25 theatre.

According to IMDB, the film tells the story of a young boy who learns that a superhero, thought to have gone missing 20 years ago, may still be around.

The surprise outing followed the end of his whirlwind 25-year marriage to Jennifer in what was one of Hollywood’s longest-running couplings.

Jennifer, who has reportedly accused the actor of moving assets from their shared marital funds while Sylvester told fans in a statement ‘personal issues’ were being addressed.

A day before the split was made public, Sylvester headed to the tattoo parlour to cover up a huge tattoo of his wife’s face with a picture of his dog Butkus.

Jennifer first met Sylvester in 1988 when she was 19 and the actor was 41.

The pair are said to have crossed paths at a restaurant in Beverly Hills while Jennifer was enjoying a night out with friends.

Things were seemingly going well, that was until 1994 when Sylvester broke it off with Jennifer after cheating on her with supermodel Janice Dickinson.

Shortly after the affair she fell pregnant, leading her to believe that Stallone was the father. Her daughter Savannah was born in 1994 – but a paternity test revealed that he was not the father.

Just one year later, in 1955, Jennifer and Sylvester got back together, pushing all of the previous drama to one side – including Stallone’s brief romance with Angie Everhart.

Sylvester and Jennifer tied the knot a few months later surrounded by a handful of close friends and family members at a low-key bash at The Dorchester Hotel in London.

It was in May of this year that they celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary, both taking to social media to share gushing posts about their long-lasting relationship.

Fastforward just a couple months to the beginning of this month when Jennifer shared a cryptic post about prioritising her daughters. “These girls are my priority, nothing else matters,” she posted on Instagram – sharing a picture of her three daughters.

And now, after everything, Jennifer no longer follows Sylvester on Instagram and has filed divorce documents in Florida on Friday, according to TMZ.

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.”
