Sylvester Stallone Talks About His Grief Over Son's Death: It's Very Tough


Sylvester Stallone


The 'Rocky' lead actor says that taking part in 'The Expendables 2' promo tour helps him 'get back and try to start reliving your life.'

Sylvester Stallone talked for the very first time about coping with his son Sage's tragic death. When coming to "Good Morning America" on August 14 to promote his new movie "The Expendables 2", he said, "It's tough. It's very very tough."

The action movie veteran continued, "But if you have good friends and your family's support, it's just something that's a horrible situation but ... hopefully it will heal and you try to get through it but it's something that is a reality in life."

Sly added that participating in the promo tour for the sequel of "The Expendables" helped him move forward. "It's important to get back and try to start reliving your life, otherwise you can go into a spiral," so he explained.

Sage was found dead in his Los Angeles Home on Friday, July 13. He was 36 years old. Police believed that there was no foul play, but the cause of his death was still unclear pending toxicology tests by the Coroner Office.

Sly begged media to stop making speculations and spreading rumors about Sage's passing. "Because when a parent loses a child there is no greater pain," he said. "Therefore I am imploring people to respect my wonderfully talented son's memory and feel compassion for his loving mother Sasha, because this agonizing loss will be felt for the rest of our lives."

"Sage was our first child and the center of our universe and I am humbly begging for all to have my son's memory and soul left in peace."

Sage portrayed Sly's on-screen son Robert Balboa in 1990's "Rocky V". In addition, the father-son duo played opposite each other in 1996's "Daylight".
