New details surrounding the sudden death of Sylvester Stallone's death have emerged. According to law enforcement, Sage Stallone was already dead a minimum of 3 days, possibly as long as a week, before his body was discovered by a housekeeper in his Los Angeles home on Friday, July 13 afternoon.

TMZ's sources said the reason Sage was not found until that long because he was used to living like a hermit.

Sources said he was living "like Howard Hughes" and his room was filled with junk such as cigarette butts, beer and soda cans, and food.
