After 25 years of marriage, Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Flavin are getting divorced.
On Friday, Flavin filed a petition “for dissolution of marriage and other relief” from the 76-year-old Rocky actor at a court in Palm Beach County, Florida.
Although Stallone and Flavin, 54, started dating in 1988 at a restaurant in Beverly Hills, California, they only got married in 1997.
The three daughters they have are Scarlet (20), Sistine (24), and Sophia (25). Search, a son from Stallone’s first marriage to Sasha Czack, is also his child. Sage, the oldest child with Starlin Wright, passed away in 2012.
Closer Weekly first reported the news of the filing for divorce. Stallone said in a statement to PEOPLE, “I cherish my family. We are resolving these private matters amicably and in private.”
Three months ago, the couple celebrated their silver wedding anniversary. They each posted an Instagram tribute to the other to commemorate the momentous occasion.
Stallone captioned a photo carousel of the couple with “Happy 25th anniversary to my amazing wife.” “What this incredibly selfless, devoted, patient woman has meant to our lives cannot be adequately expressed in words, and I only wish they could live another 25 years! I’m grateful, sweetheart.”
Along with her photo collection, Flavin wrote, “We wish you a happy 25th wedding anniversary! I’m grateful to you for keeping me happy, for loving and guarding our wonderful family.”
She declared, “Every year, our marriage gets better and better. I can’t wait to be with you for the rest of your life!” Since then, Flavin’s post has been taken down.
On August 10, Flavin shared a photo of herself giving a hug to the couple’s three daughters. She captioned the picture, “Everything else is secondary to these girls. Truth, family, and forever: the four of us.”
Sophia commented, “You are our rock, cheerleader, and a most incredible mom.” “We are so fortunate to have you; we adore you.” Sistine continued, “Strongest woman I know,” Scarlet added a single heart emoji.
