Rumours Circulate Online That Sylvester Stallone Is Dead


Sylvester Stallone has taken to social media to prove he’s still alive after the Rocky star was the victim of a gross death hoax.

The Hollywood star shared a picture on Instagram of himself ‘sparring’ with champion boxer Sergey ‘Krusher’ Kovzalev but didn’t address the sick rumours of his demise, the Mirror reports.

The Oscar nominee captioned the post:

With the incredibly powerful unified light heavyweight champion, Sergey “Krusher”Kovzalev ” … Whatever he hits, he destroys” @sergeykovalev (sic)

Fans of the iconic action star were shocked over the weekend when cruel rumours of Stallone’s death began to do the rounds on social media after a fake news story, allegedly from U.S. news site CNN, appeared on Facebook.

The fake news story claimed that the 70-year-old Rocky star had died of a pill overdose.

When news of the hoax broke, fans were left confused with one writing: “Is Sylvester Stallone dead or it was just a hoax? #StalloneDead? (sic)”

Thankfully, Stallone is alive and well and has been active on his social media accounts – on Friday he shared a selfie of his daughter Sophia as they ate a meal together.

Only last month, Jayden Smith was the victim of a similar hoax after a ‘video’ was uploaded to Facebook allegedly showing the After Earth star saying goodbye to his dad before supposedly committing suicide.

Jayden is also thankfully alive and well.
