Sylvester Stallone facing sexual harassment allegations

Sylvester Stallone has been accused of sexually harassing a 16-year-old girl over 30 years ago.
The Hollywood icon is the latest star to face allegations of historic sexual misconduct, after an unnamed woman claimed that in 1986 – when she was just 16 years old – Stallone forced her to have sex with him and his bodyguard in a Las Vegas hotel room.
According to a police report which was filed at the time and obtained by the Daily Mail newspaper, the woman did not want to press charges because she was scared and humiliated by the ordeal, and signed a ”no prosecution” form.
However, the ‘Rocky’ star, 71, has categorically denied the allegations made against him, and a representative for the actor has branded the claims as ”ridiculous” and ”false”.
Speaking to TMZ.com, his spokesperson Michelle Bega said: ”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.”
The allegations against Stallone come after disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein was accused by a number of women of sexual harassment cases spanning a 30-year period, and actor Kevin Spacey has faced claims of sexual misconduct from several males, including Richard Dreyfuss’ son Harry and ‘Star Trek: Discovery’s Anthony Rapp.
Comedian Louis C.K. was also accused of having exposed himself and masturbating in front of at least five women, and has since said the allegations are ”true”, but thought at the time his actions were okay because he had asked permission first.
He said: ”At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my d**k without asking first, which is also true. But what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your d**k isn’t a question. It’s a predicament for them.”
