Sasha Czack Stallone, Sage Stallone at the world premiere of “Rocky Balboa”at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, Hollywood, CA December 13, 2006.S Sage Stallone, the son of legendary action star Sylvester Stallone and Sasha Czack, was found dead at his L.A. home Friday at the age of 36. According to TMZ, the cause of death was an overdose, but that has not been confirmed by authorities.
Paramedics found Sage at his LA home and pronounced him dead at the scene. Today, reports indicate Sage could have been dead for at least three days. Sources say he lived a very solitary life and wouldn’t come out of his room for days at a time. Apparently his maid was there earlier this week but had ongoing instructions not to disturb or contact Stallone while at the house. However, when his mother couldn’t reach him, she sent the maid to check on him. That’s when Stallone’s body was discovered.
The Rocky and Rambo star’s son was an actor himself, appearing with his dad in Rocky V, while also working as a director, producer, and screenwriter.
A statement was issued by Sylvester’s camp shortly after the news broke: “Sylvester Stallone is devastated and grief-stricken over the sudden loss of his son Sage Stallone. His compassion and thoughts are with Sage’s mother, Sasha. Sage was a very talented and wonderful young man. His loss will be felt forever.”
