Sage Stallone

Dead for at Least

Three Days

EXCLUSIVE

0713_sage_Stallone_article_2Sage Stallone was dead in his room for a minimum of 3-4 days and possibly as long as a week ... this according to law enforcement sources connected with the case. 

Our sources tell TMZ ... Sage "lived like Howard Hughes" ... he often spent days in his room which was "littered with junk," including an enormous number of cigarette butts, beer and soda cans, and food.

We're told there were two drawers filled with various pill bottles, some of which were "huge."

Our sources say Sage was living like a hermit ... no one had spoken with him since a week ago Friday. Although the housekeeper had been there earlier this week, she had specific ongoing instructions never to enter Sage's room. In fact, we're told the housekeeper was told to never even knock at the door.

One law enforcement source called the room "disgusting," saying it reeked of various smells.

We're told Sage's mother called the housekeeper yesterday after being unable to reach him, asking her to stop by and check on him. That's when she discovered the body.

Law enforcement sources tell us it's pretty clear from the evidence they saw ... Sage's death was an accident.

The irony here is horrifying.


The millions upon millions of people Sly has inspired, lifted, encouraged, helped.


Either indirectly or hands-on.


Yet a complete inability - to get to his own son.


And why - because there was shame involved.


Sage didn't want Sly to know.


So the people closest-to-Sage:


Kept Sage's pretense and cover.


Same with me - same exact thing - brings my own nightmare back.


"Why didn't anyone TELL me all this had been going on - and with my kid brother?"

Sounds like "Sly" was just as bad of a father as he was an actor. He must have been afraid of what would happen to his career if it got out his son was living like this. I don't like "Sly" because he left our country during the Viet Nam War to avoid service. Fair enough I guess that was his right. What I can't stan is he comes back and makes millions off of the Viet Nam War by portraying a veteran. I think he gave up the right to portray that part when he decided to hide out in sweden and make "Soft Porn" I feel bad for his son, with a father that is that ambitious and morally bankrupt the guy didn't have a chance.

When fathers marry again and make a 2nd family many of the children of the first family suffer too much and turn to drugs because they emotionally stop after the divorce and remain at that stage emotionally in adult life.

Accident my ass! A very depressed person took their life. He probably didn't leave a suicide note cuz he was depressed. You would have to be a fahking moron to not come to the conclusion that Sage Stallone was depressed and didn't want to live.

I have an adult child. We are very VERY close. But, if she didn't work for a living (that is, if she didn't show up for work, I would hear about it), I wouldn't be overly worried if I didn't hear from her for a few days. And, even when I visit her, I'm rarely actually in her bedroom. This kind of struggle is actually pretty easy to hide. I would not assume that because a 36 year old man hadn't been in touch with his parents for a few days it means that there was any sort of failure on his parents part. A lot of "regular" people with stable upbringings have suffered from depression and addiction. This is just a sad story all around; blame doesn't do anyone any good.
