Sylvester Stallone under investigation by police sex crimes team

Los Angeles prosecutors said on Wednesday that their sex crimes team was reviewing a case against Sylvester Stallone. However, media reports past year indicated a woman had filed a police report in Santa Monica against Stallone about an incident in the 1990s. Singer reiterated the statement to Deadline today.

"If this is the same woman, he categorically disputes this", Singer said. One woman came forward and said that she was asked to lie for this woman to say it occurred.

A woman accused Stallone of raping her in the 1990s in a police report she filed last December, according to Reuters.

On Wednesday, a representative for Stallone repeated that the actor meant to press a case against his accuser. SMPD says the initial complaint was filed with police in November 2017 relating to an allegation of sexual misconduct from the 1990s.

Stallone's camp has denied both of the allegations of assault, and even threatened to file claims accusing the alleged victims of filing false police reports. "At no time was Mr. Stallone ever contacted by authorities or anyone else regarding this matter".

The increasing scrutiny on allegations against Stallone come in the wake of the #MeToo movement and reports about widespread sexual abuse allegedly perpetrated by Harvey Weinstein and other powerful men in Hollywood.
