Sylvester Stallone has been accused of sexual assault by a 16-year-old girl while shooting a movie in Las Vegas in the late 1980s.
The unnamed teenager alerted Las Vegas police to how she was ‘intimidated’ into sex with the Rocky star and his bodyguard, Michael ‘Mike’ De Luca.
The alleged assault is said to have taken place at the former Las Vegas Hilton hotel, in July 1986, when Stallone was 40-years-old.
The teenager opted out of pressing charges against the pair because she says she felt ‘humiliated and ashamed.’
De Luca, who was 27-years-old at the time of the alleged incident, was shot and killed by a California policeman during a traffic stop in 2013.
The teenager was staying at the Hilton hotel between July 18 and July 28 1986 with family friends.
She met the actor on July 23 after David Mendenhall introduced her to the star, along with her cousin.
As per the police report, Stallone gave her his autograph before asking how old she was and ‘how she got such a build.’ After exchanging kisses on the cheek, all three went their separate ways.
The next day she reportedly returned to the area of the hotel where they were filming, where she then met De Luca.
He’s said to have asked her what she’d do if Stallone made a pass at her, with her replying, ‘[I’d] probably make a pass back at him.’
De Luca then handed her two keys for a room on the 27th floor and told her to go up as soon as possible – when she went up, she met Stallone and De Luca in the hallway.
She states she and Stallone then had sex while De Luca stayed in the bathroom.
However, before long, Stallone is alleged to have brought De Luca out from the bathroom, who then allegedly forced the teenager down onto his penis. It’s also been reported Stallone then did the same, before ejaculating in front of her.
The two men are said to have then told the teenager not to tell anyone as they were both married at the time.
Police said ‘during the interview, [the teen] became emotionally upset numerous times, crying and sobbing.’
Asked if she wanted to press charges, she said:
I’m humiliated and ashamed, but I don’t want to prosecute. I’m kind of scared and I’m very ashamed. I don’t want anybody else to have that happen to them, but I don’t want to prosecute.
I cannot talk about this anymore, please leave me alone.
She eventually signed a no prosecution form and the case was dropped.
