Sage Stallone was dead in his room for a minimum of 3-4 days and possibly as long as a week … this according to law enforcement sources connected with the case.
Our sources tell TMZ … Sage “lived like Howard Hughes” … he often spent days in his room which was “littered with junk,” including an enormous number of cigarette butts, beer and soda cans, and food.
We’re told there were two drawers filled with various pill bottles, some of which were “huge.”
Our sources say Sage was living like a hermit … no one had spoken with him since a week ago Friday. Although the housekeeper had been there earlier this week, she had specific ongoing instructions never to enter Sage’s room. In fact, we’re told the housekeeper was told to never even knock at the door.
One law enforcement source called the room “disgusting,” saying it reeked of various smells.
We’re told Sage’s mother called the housekeeper yesterday after being unable to reach him, asking her to stop by and check on him. That’s when she discovered the body.
Law enforcement sources tell us it’s pretty clear from the evidence they saw … Sage’s death was an accident.
It’s being reported that the son of action star, Sylvester Stallone, Sage Moonblood Stallone has died from a drug overdose at the age of 36 year old.
“Sage Stallone, the son of Sylvester Stallone, was found dead at his San Fernando Valley home Friday, a law enforcement source said.
Los Angeles police who were asked to make a welfare check at the home found the body, said the sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the case was ongoing.
No cause of death has been determined, and no other details were immediately available.
Sage Stallone was born in Los Angeles in 1976. He appeared as an actor in several movies, including some with his father, such as “Rocky V” and “Daylight.”
He was 36.
[Updated at 4:54 a.m.: Stallone’s body was found by his housekeeper in his Studio City home this morning, said his lawyer, George Braunstein.
He said the cause of death was under investigation. “We don’t have any of the details,” Braunstein said. “He wasn’t depressed. He was thinking about getting married. He just had his whole life ahead of him.”
He was the son of Sylvester Stallone and his first wife, Sasha Ash. Sage had no children.]
Ugh…this is awful. Just awful. We’ll keep you posted with more details, although this post is plenty horrific on its own.
Our hearts go out to the the Stallone family.
