Sylvester Stallone divorce filing denies wife’s claim of wasted assets

WEST PALM BEACH — “Rocky” and “Rambo” star Sylvester Stallone has responded to his estranged wife Jennifer Flavin’s petition for divorce in the Palm Beach County Circuit Court, acknowledging her claim that the couple’s marriage is “irretrievably broken” but denying accusations that he wasted marital assets.

In a response to the court filed Monday, attorneys for Stallone wrote that he “has not engaged in any conduct which constitutes intentional dissipation, depletion and/or waste of marital assets.”

In the response, Stallone, 76, also opposed Flavin’s request to have exclusive use of the couple’s Palm Beach home during the proceedings to end their 25-year marriage.

Flavin, 54, filed for divorce Aug. 19 on the grounds that the marriage cannot be saved.

Days after Flavin’s petition to dissolve the marriage, Stallone refuted rumors that a disagreement over the care of a family dog ​​was a factor in the split, telling the TMZ website “we did not end the relationship on such a trivial argument.”

“We just went in different directions,” the Hollywood icon told TMZ. “I have the highest respect for Jennifer. I will always love her. She’s an amazing woman. She’s the best human being I’ve ever met.”
