Reports say that Jennifer Flavin, a model, and Sylvester Stallone‘s wife, filed for divorce because they couldn’t agree on whether or not to get a new dog.
TMZ says that Stallone wanted to get a Rottweiler to help protect their family, but Flavin didn’t like the idea. This led to a heated argument this summer that brought up several problems between the couple.
Sources told TMZ that none of these problems seemed to be big enough to end the marriage, but we think the timing is a little too good. Even so, Stallone didn’t give up and got a Rottweiler anyway.
The dog, Dwight, has the same first name as Stallone’s character in the upcoming crime drama series Tulsa King, which will air on Paramount+.
Sources say that the actor thought he and Flavin could have worked things out, but now that the divorce is happening, he seems to be embracing his new role as a dog dad. On August 5, he made an Instagram post about Dwight and wrote, “So incredibly happy with my newly acquired four-legged friends ‘DWIGHT,’ my character’s name from the series, keep punching and keep barking!!! Thank you very much to trainer and breeder Dave Smith and his lovely wife!!!” Three days later, there was another Instagram post that said, “‘DWIGHT’ is a true friend! KeepPunching And Keep barking!”
All of that seems to be fine, but when Flavin posted a picture of her with the couple’s three daughters on August 10, it seemed strange. She wrote, “These girls are my top priority.” “The rest doesn’t matter. We’ll always be 4.” That seems like a very specific number!
As the last thing to do: This week, Daily Mail posted a picture that seemed to show that Sylvester Stallone had covered up his bicep tattoo of Flavin with a picture of Butkus, the bullmastiff who was with Stallone in the first two Rocky movies. So, what we’ve learned today is that it doesn’t matter how hard you hit; what matters is how good your tattoo artist is. Look at the comments below.
There have been more shady talk about Stallone than just this. In December, he posted a selfie that made people wonder if he was a member of the alt-right conspiracy movement QAnon. He was on a list of famous people who were accused of breaking strict water rules in Southern California this summer. This meant that he had gone over his monthly water budget by at least 150% at least four times since the end of last year.
