Sage and Sylvester Stallone: A Story of Heartache and Reconciliation

Originally posted 07/17/2012 06:00PM

Life was not easy for Sage Moonblood Stallone, particularly as a child, when he had little connection with his busy Hollywood superstar father.

"I was an easygoing guy, and school was pretty much people trying to challenge me to a fight, y'know, saying, 'Rambo! Rocky!' " Sage, who died unexpectedly last week at age 36, told PEOPLE in 1996, when he was 20.

It galled him because his father, Sylvester Stallone, who had become famous playing a fictional boxer, wasn't often in his son's corner due to his demanding career. So, when Sage got the chance to play opposite his dad as Rocky Balboa Jr. in 1990's Rocky V, it was a painful as well as cathartic experience.

While reports have surfaced that Sage Moonblood Stallone may have been dead for several days before his body was discovered in his Hollywood Hills home Friday, his attorney and longtime friend George Braunstein dismisses such a suggestion – and points to the fact that photos of him at home were posted to Stallone's Facebook page only 17 hours before he was found.

In addition, Braunstein tells PEOPLE, although Stallone smoked cigarettes and consumed candy and soda, the 36-year-old never exhibited any signs of drug use or addiction.

They were father and son in the movies, too.

Sage Moonblood Stallone, who was found dead Friday at age 36, acted with his father Sylvester in one of the elder Stallone's biggest franchises – the Rocky series – playing Rocky Balboa Jr. in Rocky V.

Sage, who was 14 when the movie was released in 1990, was "agreeably natural in some scenes, improbable in others," New York Times critic Janet Maslin wrote in her review at the time.

Uma Thurman, Other Stars Targeted in $30-Million Ponzi Scam

Just because you're a celebrity doesn't mean you're immune from being ripped off. Witness the jaw-dropping tale of a "Scammer to the Stars" who allegedly operated a Ponzi scheme that bilked $30 million from the likes of Uma Thurman, Wesley Snipes, Sylvester Stallone, Al Pacino, playwright Neil Simon, directors Mike Nichols, Martin Scorsese and Nora Ephron, illusionist David Blaine, and celeb photographer Annie Leibovitz.

And though some of the luckier stars smelled a rat and got their money out in time, on Thursday federal prosecutors arrested so-called financial adviser Kenneth Starr, 66, in his $7.5-million Manhattan condo – where he was hiding in the closet, until federal agents spotted his shoes underneath the door, according to The New York Times.

Initially, Starr's wife, Diane Passage, a former dancer at the Scores strip club, told the agents that Starr was not home. But then, reports the New York Post, quoting the agents, she pointed upstairs and whispered, "He's upstairs."

Sly Defends Human Growth Hormone as Rambo Returns

Originally posted 01/26/2008 09:10AM

Sylvester Stallone is back on the big screen playing a bulked-up Rambo in the fourth installment of the series – and isn't afraid to talk about what helped him get in fighting shape.

The 61-year-old star tells Time that he pumped up to 209 lbs. with the help of prescription testosterone.

"HGH [human growth hormone] is nothing. Anyone who calls it a steroid is grossly misinformed," he says. "Testosterone to me is so important for a sense of well-being when you get older. Everyone over 40 years old would be wise to investigate it because it increases the quality of your life."
