Sylvester Stallone previously said it would be like “mass suicide” if his model wife Jennifer Flavin ever left him.
Months before filing for divorce, Stallone and Flavin appeared as guests on their daughters’ podcast “Unwaxed with Sophia & Sistine Stallone.” The two discussed their relationship in depth months before ending their 25-year marriage.
“If she was out of my life, it would be mass suicide — which implies I have multiple personalities,” Stallone said on the podcast, first noted by Entertainment Tonight, in January.
Flavin also gave some insight into how she’s kept Stallone’s life “extremely organized” over the past two decades.

“I keep him extremely organized so I do everything. I do everything from the minute we wake up, from bringing him coffee to bringing it to him in bed, bringing him cookies in bed every morning and then downstairs” , explained Flavin. She added, “And then we get ready. I make you breakfast in the morning and then I make sure you’re okay for the day.”
“I go over your schedule, then you tell a few jokes, I laugh,” she continued of the couple’s routine. “That’s what keeps us going, because I laugh, and I laugh, and I laugh, because he’s so funny. Sly is the funniest man I’ve ever met, and I’m telling you that I have frequented a lot of funny comedians. He cracks me up.
The “Samaritan” star noted that the couple’s marriage worked because Flavin was always doing his own thing.
“I think part of having a happy marriage is letting people follow their natural inclinations,” the ‘Rocky’ actor said during the podcast. “Some people don’t want to work, some people need to work. That was her thing. She’s been single since she was 12, 13, so I was like, ‘You know what? Let her go.””
“I don’t understand when people try to subjugate other people and put a lion’s paw on them and not let them do what they want to do, and then you come home and wonder why your wife is in a bad mood,” he said. added later. “…I think that’s the worst thing, is to trample on someone’s dreams, just to crush them. So don’t marry him. Don’t marry him. Don’t marry him .”

“It’s very rare in this town.”
