Sylvester Stallone being investigated for sex crimes

"A case was presented today by the Santa Monica Police Department regarding Sylvester Stallone". It is under review.

No details of the alleged crime were provided by authorities. However, media reports past year indicated a woman had filed a police report in Santa Monica against Stallone about an incident in the 1990s.

Marty Singer, a well-known show business attorney who also worked for Bill Cosby and Michael Jackson, said that prosecutors in Los Angeles put the allegation back in the limelight as a publicity grab. Risling declined to clarify.

"My client categorically denies the allegations", Singer told CNN on Wednesday.

Weinstein, who has denied the allegations against him, turned himself in to police in NY last month and pleaded not guiltylast week to rape and criminal sex act charges.

Actor Sylvester Stallone looks on during a signing ceremony to grant of Clemency for former heavyweight champion Jack Johnson in the Oval Office of the White House on May 24, 2018 in Washington, DC.

"Stallone had a relationship with her for less than a week while shooting a movie in Israel in 1987; he was single at the time and she was of legal age", he explained.

Santa Monica Police started to look into the allegations against Stallone in November.

"There would be no reason to file such a report since she knew that it was too old a claim". A 1986 Las Vegas police report was uncovered that revealed the unnamed girl was intimidated into having sex with Stallone's bodyguard Mike De Luca, and performing oral sex on Stallone himself.

"It is under review by our sex crime task force". But he has yet to be charged with a crime there. The DA's office did not specify the timing of the alleged incident or say how long the case would be under review. But the revised law applies only to crimes committed after January 1, 2017, and offenses for which the statute of limitations had not expired by that date. Any crimes committed out of that time frame can not be prosecuted in California.

In an interview with the New York Post, Singer said a decision to review the case, announced Wednesday, was part of an effort to "get it out there" that they are investigating claims of Hollywood wrongdoing.

Sylvester Stallone accepts the Best Supporting Actor award for "Creed" at Critics' Choice Awards on January 17, 2016 in Santa Monica.

Making his name in the 1970s in boxing film Rocky, Stallone went on to become one of Hollywood's biggest action stars thanks to the Rocky and Rambo film franchises.

Strangely though, a photograph of Stallone standing next to Trump in the Oval Office makes it into a four-minute video the Trump Administration recently made to persuade Kim Jong Un to rejoin the world community.

"It wasn't until after the #MeToo movement began making headlines a year ago - following the Harvey Weinstein scandal - that she surfaced with the allegations", Singer said.
