Sylvester Stallone's Son, Sage Dead at 36

By Garrett Godwin

Sylvester Stallone receives a fatal blow over the weekend with the sudden loss of his son Sage, who died Friday at the age of 36.

The investigation into his death remains ongoing, but a Los Angeles Police Department representative told The New York Post there is no evidence of "foul play or criminal activity", though pills were found in Sage`s apartment.

Sage is Stallone`s son from his first marriage to Sasha Czack (1974-85)

Both Sly and Sage shared the screen as father and son in 1990`s Rocky V, where The Italian Stallion suffers brain damage and financial setbacks as he becomes mentor and manager to young, hungry fighter Tommy Gunn (Tommy Morrison), while Rocky`s relationship with his family -- especially his son -- is literally on the ropes.  However, when Tommy turns on Rocky and challenged him, our champion took the fight to the streets.

Sage and Sly also worked together on the 1996 disaster film Daylight.
