Sylvester Stallone settlement with late sister

Jan 24 2013, 5:22am CST | by

Sylvester Stallone secretly agreed a multi-million deal with his late half-sister amid claims he had abused her for years.

The 'Rocky' star agreed 16 years ago to give Toni-Ann Filiti $2 million plus $16,666.66 per month for her lifetime, as well as a trust with $50,000 per year for psychiatric and medical expenses.

According to the papers - which have been seen by the New York Post newspaper - Filiti "asserted claims for personal injury, including physical injury" against Stallone, who "vigorously denied and continues to deny and dispute all claims of wrongdoing".

Sources say Filiti - who died last August at the age of 48 - threatened a lawsuit, but the 66-year-old star settled before it was ever filed.

Stallone's mother, Jacqueline, says the settlement was the result of a "shakedown" and Stallone was a victim of blackmail.

She said: "This was nothing more than a shakedown. Toni-Ann was on 65 Oxycontin pills a day, and she threatened Sylvester. A drug addict will do anything. When Sylvester became famous, she didn't have to hook. He was trying to help her. He caved in.

"There were too many conflicting stories. At the time [in 1987] he was very hot, and his lawyers said, 'Give her something just to shut her up.' "

But Filiti's 19-year-old son Edd, hit back saying: "They've made my mother out to be the black sheep," and claims Filiti told him of the abuse allegations by "screaming about [them] over and over" while in a Florida hospital bed last year.

A Stallone representative said: "Unfortunately, celebrities, politicians and athletes frequently find themselves the targets of blackmail efforts by family members and associates who fabricate claims in order to extort payments from them."

From A Father And Son, What It Means To Be A Military Man

Aug 20 2014 4:45pm CDT | Source: WNYC Music

Military service once defined the lives of many men in the United States, particularly before the end of the draft in 1973. But today, many younger adults have no direct family ties to the military at all. For the men in Mark and Jeremy Pierce's family, however, military service is a tradition dating back to the Civil War. "My father always taught us growing up that there's service to the communi ...

Celebs Who Have Done Weird Sex Acts Onscreen!

Jul 14 2014 11:10am CDT | Source: PerezHilton

Some movies imitate reality exactly! They're totally realistic and completely believable. Sometimes, however, they tend to stray far faaaaaaar away from what life is really like. Especially during sex scenes. Some times those get suuuuuper weird. Like when Sandra Bullock and Sylvester Stallone had sex by not touching each other AT ALL in the futuristic film Demolition Man in 1993. It was SO odd. Curious to see which other actors and actresses have done weird sexua ...
