Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Flavin reportedly suffered from marital problems long before she filed divorce papers to end their 25-year marriage last week in Palm Beach, Florida.
The 76-year-old ‘Rocky’ star has been accused of engaging in the ‘intentional dissipation, depletion and/or waste of marital property which has had an adverse economic impact on the matrimonial estate’ in court records.
Flavin and Stallone, who married in London in 1997, had “problems for years” until their decades-long marriage ended, according to People magazine.
“It really wasn’t a single issue that caused her to file for divorce,” a source said. “They had a lot of problems for years, and she had just had enough.”

Flavin, 54, “got tired of going in circles” after the couple continued “to have disagreements that Jen says will never be resolved”.
The family source added, “They have been unhappy for some time and have had discussions about waiting until their children are older to officially separate.”
Stallone and Flavin have three daughters, Scarlet, Sofia and Sixtine. The “Rambo” actor was previously married to Brigitte Nielsen from 1985 to 1987 and had sons, Seargeoh and Sage, with his ex-wife, Sasha Czack.

Sage died of heart disease aged 36 in 2012.
Despite the breakup, “Jen is fine,” the insider revealed.
“Divorce is never an easy or fun choice to deal with, but she thinks it’s for the best.”
Flavin apparently filed the paperwork in Florida, where the estranged couple had spent much of their time since purchasing a $35 million estate in late 2020.
The sprawling 13,241 square foot mansion features seven bedrooms and 10 bathrooms with two guest houses located on 250 feet of private water frontage.

Stallone and Flavin had a shared love for the South Florida area and sold a nearby Coconut Grove home in 1999 for $16.2 million.
In court documents obtained by “Entertainment Tonight,” Flavin asked to stay at the Palm Beach home during the proceedings.
Florida laws require equitable distribution of marital assets and liabilities, which can be assumed to be split down the middle in a 50-50 split.
“I love my family. We address these personal issues amicably and privately,” Stallone said in a statement to Fox News Digital shortly after the matter became public.
