American actor, Sylvester Stallone has sparked separation rumours with his wife, Jennifer Flavin.
Stallone, 76, who has been married to Flavin for 25 years recently covered a giant tattoo of her on his right bicep with a picture of Butkus, Rocky’s bull mastiff from the hit movie.
Meanwhile, Flavin, 54 also hinted that it might all be over following a post on her Instagram page.
In the post, she shared a picture of herself hugging their three daughters. In the caption, she wrote,
“These girls are my priority,’ she wrote on the post on August 10. ‘Nothing else matters. The 4 of us forever.”
Glamsquad also noted that Flavin has unfollowed her husband on Instagram.
However, Stallone’s publicist, Michelle Bega has claimed that there are no problems between the couple and it’s all a misunderstanding over a botched refresh of his wife’s portrait on his arm. She said,
“Mr Stallone intended to refresh the tattoo image of his wife Jennifer however the results were unsatisfactory and, unfortunately, unfixable.
“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.”
Stallone is married for the third time to Jennifer Flavin. The couple first dated in 1988 shortly after his brief second marriage to Brigitte Nielsen ended.
They married on May 17, 1997, at the posh Dorchester Hotel in London, and with Stallone’s reputation as a playboy, few predicted they would last long.
Stallone has four children, – two sons, sons, Sage and Seargeoh with his first wife Sasha Czack. Sadly, Sage, died of coronary artery disease in 2012 aged 36.
He also has three daughters – Sistine, Scarlet, and Sophia with his third wife, Jennifer Flavin.
