Stallone’s Ex-Wife Brigitte Nielsen Disputes Assault Claims
Sylvester Stallone's former wife has refuted claims that the star sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl in the late 1980.
Brigitte Nielsen who was married to Stallone between 1985 and 1987 says he was with her the entire time in Las Vegas where the incident is alleged to have occurred.
Stallone, 71, has been accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl while filming Over the Top in Las Vegas in 1986.
The Rocky star was 40 years old when the unnamed teenager told police she had been 'intimidated' into having sex with Stallone and his bodyguard Las Vegas Hilton hotel.
But Nielsen has told TMZ the incident could not have occurred because the couple were together the whole time.
'During the summer of 1986 we were newlyweds. I was inseparable with Sylvester when Over The Top was being shot in Las Vegas. '
'The story claims that at approximately 8:30 in the evening during the shoot of the movie the person claims she was in our suite at the Hilton Hotel.'
She continued: 'This incident did not occur. Most of the day, I would watch him film, then we'd have dinner and go to our room. No other person was in the room with him, but me.'
Michelle Bega, spokeswoman for Stallone, told DailyMail.com earlier: '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 any authorities or anyone else regarding this matter.'
