A father can endure no loss greater than that of his eldest son.
It's a difficult and private time for the famed action-star and we understand when he calls for "the speculation and questionable reporting" surrounding his son's tragic and mysterious death to cease.
Sly released a statement Monday morning, asking media to respect the pain his family is experiencing.
"When a parent loses a child there is no greater pain. Therefore I am imploring people to respect my talented son's memory and feel compassion for his loving mother Sasha."
"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."
This is such a sad, sad story.
We continue to extend our thoughts and prayers to the entire Stallone family.
