Sage Stallone's Cousin Blames Sly!
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.
