Prosecutors review Stallone sexual assault allegation

A sex crime allegation involving Sylvester Stallone dating back to the 1990s is being reviewed by the Los Angeles County prosecutors' sex crimes task force, authorities said Wednesday. The Daily Mail in November reported that it had obtained a police report alleging that Stallone forced a 16-year-old girl into a threesome with himself and his bodyguard, Mike De Luca, at a Las Vegas hotel. While no specifics were given about the case, or the accuser, the alleged incident took place in the 1990s, according to Santa Monica Police Lt. Saul Rodriguez. That assault was alleged to have occurred at a time that would be beyond the statute of limitations.

Singer also strongly denied the rape allegations against his client at the time they were first reported in December. He is free on $1 million bail, but must wear an ankle bracelet.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the case against Stallone that is now being reviewed by the DA is from an incident that took place in 1990.

A Santa Monica Police Department spokesman did not immediately return messages seeking additional details about the referral.

Stallone has been enjoying a career boost lately, in part due to the box-office success of his "Expendables" franchise, as well as "Creed", the critically-acclaimed and popular 2015 sequel to "Rocky" that netted him a supporting-actor Oscar nomination (his first since the original film).

"It wasn't until after the #MeToo movement began making headlines past year - following the Harvey Weinstein scandal - that she surfaced with the allegations", Singer said.

Strangely though, a photograph of Stallone standing next to Trump in the Oval Office makes it into a four-minute video the Trump Administration recently made to persuade Kim Jong Un to rejoin the world community.

A woman claimed the action hero raped her decades ago and she filed a police report with the allegations in November.

In an interview with the New York Post, Singer said the rush of #MeToo stories that followed accusations against Harvey Weinstein are what led to the claim being made against Stallone.
