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 find it rather odd, that Stallone would acknowledge or respond to a gossip site.Let alone provide a personal family photo.Most people would be too absorbed in the situation and their grief to be worried about the "publicity." hmmmm?

I love to hear people say "we doing God's work" then do something as dispicable as protest a families loss of a child. God's work my ass. I love the picture of sly and his son, more men should show their son's affection like that. Then us women will have more loving husbands

No parent shoud have to bury thier child. It is so very heart wrenching - no matter the cir***stances. I hope there is some compassion for the Stalone family - they are after all just a family. They should be able to take the time necessary, however long, to grieve, recover, and carry on.

We, as a society, should give our support to the Stalone family if for noo ther reason than how many hours did we spend watchig Rocky, Rambo, Oscar, etc. Personally, when I was younger, I figure skated to the theme of Rocky. It gave me the rush of adrenile I needed to win my competitions.

So fellow human beings, be human and let the family grieve. They need time to regroup and I bet Sly and Sasha will surprise us in the near future.

So, Sly asks the public to stop speculating by... trying to manipulate the public with a strategically placed glamour shot of himself and his son and by making glorifying statements about his effed up family life... Really?
