A former friend of Sylvester Stallone's extended family whose name is Kenneth Chiaramonte has filed charges against the famous actor's sister, Toni Ann Filiti, for hiring him and then wrongfully terminating his contract.
Here's what the official complaint said:
"At the commencement of the contract and continuing thereafter, Toni Ann Filiti promised Kenneth Chiaramonte that their relationship was long-term, based upon friendship and would continue indefinitely. Toni Ann Filiti made these promises in an order to induce Kenneth Chiramonte to abandon his previous career as a successful real estate agent. Toni Ann Filiti further made these promises to induce Kenneth Chiaramonte to move into her residence and to move his mother into her residence."
Problem arose, however, later on when the former real estate agent refused to participate in unlawful activities. Or so he claims.
"Chiaramonte refused to facilitate narcotics consumption by Toni Ann Filiti, nor would he facilitate her obtaining a narcotics prescription from a physician once he came to believe that the prescription was not warranted by any genuine medical condition….the continued drug abuse, refusal to obtain treatment for the long-term effects of sexual abuse and threats of firing and homelessness (due in large part to a failure to pay wages combined with the threat of eviction and discharge) were combined with a demand to sign a non-disclosure agreement. The threats included economic threats, threats of lawsuit and arrest."
The most shocking allegation by far is that Tori Ann was sexually abused by unknown family members.
"There was never any disclosure by Employee of the facts of the familial sexual abuse or drug use prior to this harassment. In addition, Employee had knowledge of these facts prior to accepting employment. Any additional facts obtained during employment were not covered by any confidentiality agreement, written or oral made in relation to the employment."
Tori Ann has recently been diagnosed with cancer and is now living with her mother.
Kenneth says the harassment started in August of last year and was not paid upon his termination.
We'll keep an eye on this bizarre case, but these are some serious allegations, so we'll definitely be curious who comes out victorious.
In cases like these, though - nobody wins.
