Sexual assault case haunts Stallone 31 years later

THE fallout generated by the sexual assault cases slapped by numerous Hollywood actresses against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein continues to impact other industry bigwigs whose skeletons in their closets are beginning to unravel before the public eye.

Already, several respected names in Hollywood like actors Kevin Spacey, Dustin Hoffman and filmmaker Brett Ratner among others have fallen by the wayside.

Hoffman and Ratner were accused of sexually molesting numerous women and in the case of Spacey he was accused by at least 24 men of sexual misconduct.

The latest in the growing list of Hollywood bigshots to be accused of sexual molestation is veteran action star Sylvester Stallone who allegedly committed the crime back in 1986.  

Stallone however quickly dismissed the allegations describing them as “ridiculous”.

"This is a ridiculous, categorically false story. No one was ever aware of this story until it was published today, including Mr. Stallone. At no time was Mr. Stallone ever contacted by authorities or anyone else regarding this matter," a representative for Stallone recently told reporters.

The unidentified victim had filed a report in 1986 with Las Vegas police after Stallone and bodyguard Michael de Luca allegedly "intimidated" her into having sex with both men.

Stallone reportedly threatened to "beat her head" if she said a word about the attack, the victim charged.

The teenager claimed she met Stallone when she was staying at the Las Vegas Hilton hotel during a 10-day vacation with relatives. 

She said she was introduced to Stallone by actor David Mendenhall, who was playing Stallone's son in the film.

The actor, who was 40 then, was in Vegas to film the arm-wrestling movie "Over the Top". 

The reports indicated that the teenager decided not to pursue charges against Stallone because she feared that the actor might get revenge to her.

Retired Las Vegas metro police department detective sergeant John Samolovitch, who was head of the sexual assault unit at the time, confirmed that "the copy of the police report published in the media is in fact a true copy of the original report".

Since The New York Times published allegations of sexual harassment and assault against Weinstein in October, multiple women have surfaced and also spoke of assaults by known personalities from entertainment, media and politics in the U.S. 

Certainly, the accusations against Weinstein have opened a floodgate, sparking an international condemnation and calls to fight sexual harassments in the workplaces.
