Iconic Hollywood star Sylvester Stallone accused of sexual assault
Iconic Hollywood star Sylvester Stallone has been accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old fan along with a body guard, the charges he vehemently denies.
Stallone is the latest Hollywood star accused of sexual assault after producer Harvey Weinstein made headlines around the globe for sexual harassment and assault scandal that rocked the American film industry.
The Rocky star denied reports that he and a body guard had coerced a 16-year-old fan into having sex with them in Las Vegas in the 1980s.
Speaking to the Fox News a spokesperson for the action star said “This is a ridiculous, categorically false story. No one was ever aware of this story until it was published today, including Mr. Stallone. At no time was Mr. Stallone ever contacted by authorities or anyone else regarding this matter”
According to the Mail Online, which published the police report, the girl got an autograph from Stallone, then 40, in July 1986 in what was then the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel.
She claimed a bodyguard gave her keys to a hotel room where she later had sexual intercourse with both men on July 26, according to the report.
She said Stallone threatened her that she could not tell anybody about the incident and if she did, they would have to beat her head in, the report said.
It said that she told the police that she was not physically forced to have intercourse but felt “intimidated”.
She said she was left feeling “humiliated and ashamed” by the event and did not want to prosecute so the force dropped the case, according to the report.
