A new report has alleged that Sylvester Stallone is already dead at the age of 69. Amid this supposed update, it has been surmised that he might have committed suicide to end his life.
What could have been his reason for doing so, if these reports were to believe? Is it something so enormous that he decided to totally disappear from the face of the Earth?
As soon as September started, several Facebook users reportedly gone crazy about the supposed “CNN report” claiming that the widely-popular “Rambo” star has already passed away.
According to Snopes, the report was “fraudulent.” Based on the death hoax, Sylvester Stallone was reportedly found dead inside his home in Los Angeles. In the fake CNN Breaking News, it was reported that “Stallone Dead at 69, Exclusive Video Footage.”
As reported by Why Macintosh, it was alleged that the actor, who starred recently in the “Expendables” film series, might have taken his life by drug overdose. Accordingly, his housekeeper discovered him and that “Prescription Pills Were Found At Scene.”
The site even shared an interview with the spokesperson of Sylvester Stallone. However, the report was several years ago, as it was about his son’s death.
“Sylvester Stallone is devastated and grief-stricken over the sudden loss of his son,” Michelle Bega reportedly revealed. “His compassion and thoughts are with Sage’s mother, Sasha.”
Looking at the satire report, it can be noted that the mention of “prescription pills” and being found dead in his Los Angeles home were similar to the allegations hurled at the late young Stallone when news about his death broke.
Hasn’t fans seen these things?
Back in January, the actor opened up to Mirror UK how it was losing Sage who was only 36-year-old when he died of heart attack. “Any time you can vent emotions that are real is very helpful,” Sylvester Stallone said. “Most importantly, I wanted to respect his memory and I think we have done that. It was good.”
