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.

Sylvester Stallone's 36-year-old son Sage Moonblood Stallone, who appeared with his father in Rocky V, was found dead in his Los Angeles home Friday.
"Sylvester Stallone is devastated and grief-stricken over the sudden loss of his son Sage Stallone," says a rep for the actor.
"His compassion and thoughts are with Sage's mother, Sasha. Sage was a very talented and wonderful young man, his loss will be felt forever."
Police officers were called to the house at 2:17 p.m. and discovered the body. There were no signs of foul play or forced entry.

He'll be back – in surgery.
Possibly feeling the painful effects of an action-movie comeback at age 64, Arnold Schwarzenegger posted a WhoSay photo of himself shirtless in the hospital nursing a bum shoulder.
But in a "huh?" moment, the photo shows his costar Sylvester Stallone, 65, also shirtless, plugged into an IV in the next bed.

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."

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."

REASSURED: Former President Bill Clinton, who will undergo a low-risk medical procedure on Thursday to remove fluid and scar tissue from the left side of his chest, told reporters in Washington on Tuesday: "It'll knock me out of commission for a week or two, and then I'll be back to normal. I'm not in too bad a shape," he added. "I feel good." The procedure, to take place at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center, comes six months after he underwent quadruple bypass surgery. Clinton, 58, will remain hospitalized for three to 10 days and is expected to make a "full functional recovery," doctors said.
