Sylvester Stallone is ready to rumble.
The actor is reportedly fighting back against a woman who accused him of rape. Stallone has stated that he was falsely accused and plans to take legal action against his accuser.
Stallone's lawyer, Marty Singer, said that they were notified of a woman who falsely reported that the actor raped her in his Santa Monica Office in 1990. Stallone admitted that he and the woman spent three days together in the late 80s while he was shooting a movie in Israel, but did not see her again after that. In the report, the woman also claimed that at that time, she was a minor, which Stallone is denying as well.
Stallone and his lawyer are waiting for the woman to make an official police report before filing a report of their own and demanding a full investigation into her claims.
Not A First
This wasn't the first time the Creed actor was accused of sexual misconduct.
Earlier this year, Stallone was facing another accusation. An unnamed woman alleged that she was forced into a threesome with Stallone and his bodyguard, Michael De Luca.
The woman, who claimed she was 16 at that time, stated that she arrived at his hotel and was shocked to find his security guard present as well. When it ended, she claimed that Stallone beat her head and threatened her if ever she told anyone.
The actor vehemently denied those allegations when the report made headlines.
"This is a ridiculous, categorically false story. No one was ever aware of this story until it was published today, including Mr. Stallone. At no time was Mr. Stallone ever contacted by authorities or anyone else regarding this matter. It never happened," a representative for Stallon stated.
Stallone was also accused of pinning an exotic dancer, Margie Carr, against the wall and tearing off her gym clothes in 2001. The actor was also implicated by his half-sister Toni-Ann Filiti of being too aggressive with her.
Stallone joins a list of other men in the industry that have accused of sexual assault and misconduct. Actors, Kevn Spacey, Ed Westwick, Dustin Hoffman, and Louis C.K. have been named sexual predators by certain men and women in Hollywood.
The allegations began after producer Harvey Weinstein was outed by an exposé article, which led to over 80 women accusing him of rape and assault.
