Los Angeles prosecutors are officially reviewing a sex crimes case against Sylvester Stallone.


The Los Angeles District Attorney's office said on Wednesday (June 13) that their sex crimes team was reviewing the case.

However, they did not reveal any further details apart from the fact it was presented to their office by Santa Monica police (via The Guardian).

"My client categorically denies the allegations," Stallone's attorney Martin Singer told CNN.

"It's outrageous that the DA's office and PD would announce this information because it makes the public think that there's something there."

He also claimed that the woman who made the complaint had a consensual relationship with the Expendables actor in the 1980s.

Singer added: "It's not appropriate to try to ruin someone by doing this."

Digital Spy has reached out to Stallone's representatives for further comment.

Santa Monica police said they were investigating a complaint from November 2017 in regards to an alleged incident of misconduct in the 1990s.

Stallone is perhaps best known as the star of Oscar-winning movie Rocky, and has since become one of the biggest action stars in Hollywood.

Most recently, he starred in The Expendables movie series as Barney Ross, and also made a cameo appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. He also reprised the role of Rocky Balboa in 2015's Creed, and will play him once again in the 2018 sequel Creed II.
