The Stallones are back on. Sylvester Stallone and his wife, Jennifer Flavin, have decided to reconcile a month after the former model filed for divorce.
Sly’s representative told news outlets that the pair “decided to meet back up at home, where they talked and were able to work out their differences”.
“They’re both extremely happy.”
The Rambo star hinted at a reconciliation early last week when he posted lovey-dovey photos of him and his wife on Instagram.
Just a day after the telling social media post, the pair filed an order of abatement at the Palm Beach County Circuit Court, which means they’re suspending the divorce proceedings.
According to the court filing, Jennifer (54) and Sylvester (76) agreed “that it’s in the best interests of each of them individually, and more importantly collectively as a family, to resolve all issues attendant to the dissolution of their marriage in a dignified, amicable and private manner out-of-court”.
“They’ve decided to let it ride again. They just decided to reverse course and try again,” a well-placed source says of the pair.
The action movie star and the Serious Skincare founder recently celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary, and have three daughters: Sophia (26), Sistine (24) and Scarlet (20).
Jennifer filed for divorce “for dissolution of marriage and other relief” from the Tulsa King star in August, and was seen without her wedding ring shortly afterwards. She alleged that Sylvester “engaged in the intentional dissipation, depletion and/or waste of marital assets which has had an adverse economic impact on the marital estate.” He denied these allegations.
Sly then appeared to take permanent steps to cement the split by covering up two tattoos which had been in honor of his wife.
After her divorce filing, Jennifer told People magazine, “I’m sad to announce that after 25 years of marriage, I’ve filed for divorce from my husband Sylvester Stallone. While we will no longer be married, I’ll always cherish the more than 30-year relationship that we shared, and I know we’re both committed to our beautiful daughters. I ask for privacy for our family as we amicably move forward.”
Several rumors were circulating about why the Stallones were calling it quits in the first place, and although the exact reason for the fallout wasn’t made clear, gossip abounded that the married couple got into a big fight over the acquisition of the action star’s new dogs.
The insiders claimed the dispute allegedly led to “an extremely heated argument that brought up other issues” in their marriage.
Sly later denied those rumors, telling news outlets, “We didn’t end the relationship on such a trivial argument.” He did, however, go on to admit that they disagreed on “how to care for the dog”, given that they often travel and share their time between two homes.
