Sage Stallone's Cousin Blames Sly!

Categories: Celebs

In Facebook messages that have since been taken down, Sage Stallone's 18-year-old-cousin Edd Filiti lashed out at Sly Stallone and wife Jennifer Flavin, claiming they have some culpability in Sage's death--quite possibly by drug OD--the other day.

Filiti claimed that Sly had cut off his son, and he added:

"Neither you [Flavin] or he could return a phone call, which is all he wanted, a father.

"I know you don't care what happened but you'll care when you're squirming under the burning magnifying glasss of public opinion. You people make me fucking sick."

Yo, Adrian! Help!

Meanwhile, Sly (who's grieving privately) has said that he wants an end to the speculation on what happened.

Apparently, so do the cops; they're sticking to the story that Sage didn't kill himself, seeing as there was no note.

But the last time I wrote about such a case, a suicide group chimed in that most suicides don't leave a note!

In this case, whether the net result was intentional or accidental, Sage was obviously medicating himself against some kind of horror.

yes...but you're talking about "normal people"...celebrity kids are a different story...when Mom/Dad is a star, you have different realities...you can't be normal since you're "so-and-so's kid" whether you like it or not.

If you're a celebrity you're open to reporting and dissection. That's the deal. Deal with it.

Why can't people let this family alone. To be a celebrity is sad because you make people love you when the movies are great but then the tabloids love to destroy you for publishing the details of every inch of your life. There is no money in the world worth all the destruction!

John, I have the distinct feeling your a red-state inhabitant. Everything black & white / cut & dry kinda guy. I'm glad you were not my parent.

Stallone was too strapped from paying  his facial reconstruction bills to slip the kid a few bills. And -- just a guess here -- having Dad leave Mom for that silicone blow-up doll Brigitte Nielsen may have messed up Sage's head a bit.

I'm sorry but Sage's cousin is under the misconception that a parent, especially a celebrity parent is required to give their children money from birth to death.   Sage could have gone out and gotten a job or training to do something outside of the entertainment field.   Sly was only required to support Sage to the age of 18, after that it was at his discretion!    Celebrity Parents like all parents eventually expect their children to leave the nest, get a job, go to college etc and eventually be able to support themselves!!  Sly was under no moral or legal requirement to continueing pay his grown sons bills.

It's possible Sly cut him off because he was such a mess and it was tough love. Who knows? In any case, Musto, I agree with your frequent writeups about how rough it must be to be the child of a star.

I wonder who pressured him to take down the messages? Rambo?
