Sylvester Stallone’s Wife Filed for Divorce Because He Wanted Another Dog

Sylvester Stallone’s wife, model Jennifer Flavin, reportedly filed for divorce after the couple disagreed over whether or not to get a new dog.

Puppy Destroys Marriage?

TMZ reports that Stallone wanted to adopt a Rottweiler to help protect their family, but Flavin wasn’t into the idea — spurring a heated argument earlier this summer that apparently brought up a number of other issues between the couple. 

Regardless, Stallone adopted a Rottweiler anyway and named him like his character on the upcoming Paramount+ crime drama series Tulsa King.

On August 5th, he shared an Instagram post dedicated to Dwight, captioned: 

“So incredibly happy with my newly acquired four legged friend ‘DWIGHT’ my characters name from the Series, keep punching and keep barking !!! Thank you very much to Trainer and breeder Dave Smith and his wonderful wife !!!” Another Instagram post arrived three days later, captioned: “‘DWIGHT’ Definitely a true friend! KeepPunching And Keep barking!”

However, this seemed suspicious after Flavin shared a photo August 10th of her with the couple’s three daughters. “These girls are my priority,” she wrote. “Nothing else matters. The 4 of us forever.”

Previously, Daily Mail shared a photo indicating that Stallone had gotten his bicep portrait tattoo of Flavin covered up with a portrait of Butkus, the bullmastiff who appeared alongside Stallone in the first two Rocky films.

The Response

Stallone commented on the reason why his marriage ended.

“We did not end the relationship on such a trivial argument,” the actor told TMZ. “We just went in different directions. I have the highest respect for Jennifer. I will always love her. She’s an amazing woman. She’s the nicest human being I’ve ever met.”

He also said that he covered up his tattoo of Jennifer as he went to get it refreshed, but it was messed up in the process.
