Heart be still. Is Sylvester Stallone ALIVE?! A scary report surfaced on Sept. 1, claiming the esteemed actor passed away. So, we decided to do a bit of digging to discover the truth. Here’s the NEW evidence we’ve found that he’s safe and well!
We’re certainly feeling a bit more relieved after Sylvester Stallone, 70, took to Instagram on Sept. 3. The Rocky Balboa star definitely appears to be in good condition, posted up next to Sergey Kovalev in the playful snap he shared with his 1.7 million followers. It’s captioned, “With the incredibly powerful unified light heavyweight champion, Sergey “Krusher”Kovzalev.” We could still use a bit more confirmation, but we’ll take what we can get! Maybe Sylvester hasn’t even heard of the reports yet! In case you missed it, a “breaking news” story, allegedly from CNN, made its rounds on Facebook for showing images of the star being rolled away in a body bag.
Rest assured, the story is reportedly another celebrity death hoax used for click bait! We certainly had our doubts about Sylvester’s passing, especially since he shared a photo with his daughter Sophia, on Sept. 2. He also recently attended the TELMEX Foundation National in Mexico, where he discussed his legendary acting career. He noted how there is a bit of his Rocky character in all of us, saying, “when you’re young you’re very brave and you feel like you’re going to live forever, and you’re just willing to take that chance. Never quit, because you would always regret it.” So, with the timing, reports of his death can’t be true right?!
We’ll be keeping an eye out for an official statement, but in the meantime we’re taking comfort in the fact that Sylvester isn’t the only celebrity who has faced falsified reports about his untimely “death.” Miley Cyrus, 23, Justin Bieber, 22, and Angelina Jolie, 41, have all been victims of this trend.
