U.S. actor Sylvester Stallone poses with fans as he arrives for the German premiere of his movie "The Expendables" in Berlin in this August 6, 2010 file photo. A federal judge has reaffirmed his decision to dismiss a lawsuit accusing Stallone of copying someone else's screenplay to make his popular 2010 movie "The Expendables." U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff in Manhattan on December 27, 2012 rejected claims of copyright infringement damages by Marcus Webb, who contended that the movie's screenplay contained 20 "striking similarities" to his own "The Cordoba Caper."

News has recently surfaced that a series of old secretly taped recordings between well-known actor Slyvestor Stallone and his half-sister Toni-Ann Filiti have been destroyed as part of a multi-million dollar settlement.

According to the New York Post, Filiti, now deceased, had alleged that Stallone had abused her. Information came out last week that the 66-year-old movie star had previously reached an agreement to pay out his half-sister with over $2, which works out to be $16,666.66 per month for life.  He also paid her $50,000 annually for both psychiatric and medical care. 

In the 1987 settlement, Filiti "asserted claims for personal injury, including physical injury" against Stallone while he "vigorously denied and continues to deny and dispute all claims of wrongdoing," states the news source.

According to the confidential settlement paperwork, the tapes reportedly contain conversations between the late Filiti, who passed away in August, and Stallone.

"This is to acknowledge receipt from you of a total of six cassette tapes, four of which contain conversations between you and your older half-brother who we are referring to as S. You understand that in accordance with the terms of the settlement agreement between you and S., I and your father are required to destroy all tapes." reads a document dated Aug. 3, 1987, that was addressed to Filiti by her attorneys.

There are believed to be more tapes that still exist and could reveal more about Stallone's family history. However, Stallone and Toni-Ann's mother, Jackie, did defend her son by saying the respective settlement occurred after Filiti blackmailed him.

"Sylvestor caved in. It was a very serious thing: Toni-Ann blackmailed him. She threatened Sly, quite frankly. This was nothing more than a shakedown," Jackie explained.

Jackie also added that Filiti was "on 65 Oxycontin pills a day" and "a drug addict" who was really short on money at the time.
