Sylvester Stallone

I'm Grief-Stricken

Sylvester Stallone tells TMZ he is devastated by the death of his son Sage Stallone and wants "the speculation and questionable reporting" to stop.

Stallone -- who gave us this picture of him with Sage taken in 1991 by famed photog Bruce Weber -- says, "When a parent loses a child there is no greater pain. Therefore I am imploring people to respect my talented son's memory and feel compassion for his loving mother Sasha."

Sly goes on to say, "This agonizing loss will be felt for the rest of our lives," adding, "Sage was our first child and the center of our universe and I am humbly begging for all to have my son's memory and soul left in peace."

I agree with Sly. Leave the man and his kid alone.

No parent should ever bury their child.Everyone should give Mr Stallone and his former wife Sasha the privacy they need during this difficult time.

Different Rules Apply    

Prescription drugs are killing our youth, if not literally, then taking all of their ambition away and making them lazy. These "legalized" drugs are being used by our youth all over the country. Big business for the drug companies, sad news for the future of our country. Way too easy to get. Peace to Mr. Stallone and his family.

Life always looks better through Bruce Weber's lens.
Harvey, what about the Howard Hughes story? My sympathy to the family.

I lost my first child, a daughter at 35 to drugs. No matter who you are, until you feel this pain you will never understand.

I know that Sage's family is grief stricken and it's sad they lost a son.

When you choose the celebrity lifestyle, you don't really get to choose what the media covers. It's like marriage, the good, the bad and the in between.

That's celebrity life

I love how Sly speaks of Sasha in such a respectful manner...this shows true care on his behalf towards his ex.

Now TMZ, respect his wishes! This aint no Whitney Houston case .. Sage was never in the tabliods & never bothered anyone!

He's talking to you TMZ. Wait till the autopsy results are published. Quit trying to be first to post bad information. Have some respect
