Sad news. Many people didn't like the 5th installment of Rocky but I enjoyed it a lot and his son did great in that movie. May he rest in peace.

This is truly disheartening. He had a autistic brother. Years ago I read that the stress of Sly dealing with his initial fame and his son's autism significantly contributed to Sly and Sage's mother Sasha divorcing. That doesn't make too sense to me, but that was what was reported years ago when they divorced in the early '80's and I strongly assume his parents' divorce and dealing with his brother must have greatly affected Sage's life. I actually thought Sage's acting was the best thing about Rocky V. He's acting was really pretty good, especially working with a weak script. I had read about him over the years and he seemed like he was probably a low key, interest guy. I'm not a huge Kill Bill and Grindhouse fan, but they still are interesting movies and Sage's production company was involved in producing them. So sad.

I have no sympathy for these drug invested morons they do this to themselves all the time. It is their choice. They come from rich families and can't handle the pressure of fame and fortune because they are selfish little turds. They need to wise up and find the real meaning of life, and the value of friends and helping others, and becoming less selfish and self centered.

Sage Stallone, pills found, he lived like Howard Hughes, he was found alone in his trashed house, he committed suicide, he was always a very trouble kid, well, when your family isolates you and puts their attention on the other siblings, you as the isolated one will take your life, and leave no note!!!! Maybe my own dad wanted to be revived when he did it to himself, but maybe not.

Sage Stallone used to take Karate at my Karate school. I remember when his mother Sasha brought him in. Did you know he had a mental disorder, like Autism or something similar. The kid was never quite right. He had a brother too, and that kid was great on the karate floor. Sage signed up and showed one time and then never again. I remember him well.

Sly is Dyslexic, so is Tom Cruise! And so is an ex boyfriend of mine is, so that is a bad disorder. You see words backwards, and you are kind of F..cked up! It's a sad state. Stallone's kid was a mess. They hid him away and forgot he existed. Stallone was into his daughter and wife Jennifer Flavin.

I used to take karate at Jun Chong Tae Kwon Do Karatein Beverly Hills, CA in 1986. They met with Sasha and Sage and she thought Sage taking martial arts would help his mental state which was not good. I think it was ADHD. That's what it was. Maybe Dyslexic, but was always it was kept under wraps. I would not be surprised if it was suicide!

Can you all just wait until the results come back before you start calling someone a drug addict or alcoholic??? None of you know what really happened to Sage. I have hated Sly Stallone for many many years, he is a douchebag, and I came to that conclusion by watching an interview that Sage had given at one time. He never gave the attention or respect to his sons as he did to his new family he was too busy hooking up with the ladies. Even People magazine had interviewed Sly years ago about Sergeoh's autism and he said he bailed on his son because he couldn't deal with it. He would just write the checks. Be a MAN. Be a FATHER. Sage was a loner because he said prior he didn't know who to trust. "You don't know if they like you for you or who you're related to". Ppl that were his friends in childhood would take things as souveniers from his house, that's probably why the housekeeper was not allowed in his room. Sage had more talent in his pinky then Sly will ever have. It's a shame that he's gone. AGAIN, I say please stop saying he is a drug addict, let the tests confirm that first before you smear his name. He can't defend himself anymore.
