Response to Brigitte Nielsen’s Defense of Sylvester Stallone in Midst of Sexual Abuse Allegations
Nielsen, one of Stallone’s ex-wives, is now rushing to Stallone’s defense in the midst of allegations that Stallone, in 1986, pressured a teen girl to perform sexual acts on himself and his bodyguard, de Luca.
Here are a few links to Nielsen’s defense, followed by my critiques of her response:
Sylvester Stallone’s ex-wife slams sexual assault accusation – Nov 20, 12017
Via the Daily Mail:
…But in an interview with TMZ, the star’s ex-wife Brigitte Nielsen, said the incident could not have occurred because the couple were inseparable at the time
‘During the summer of 1986 we were newlyweds. I was inseparable with Sylvester when Over The Top was being shot in Las Vegas.
‘The story claims that at approximately 8:30 in the evening during the shoot of the movie the person claims she was in our suite at the Hilton Hotel.’
She continued: ‘This incident did not occur. Most of the day, I would watch him film, then we’d have dinner and go to our room. No other person was in the room with him, but me.’
I would be interested in knowing why Nielsen is speaking up in defense of Stallone at this point?
Did Stallone or one of his P.R. people privately contact her and ask her to speak up in his defense?
Did Stallone offer Nielsen a role in one of his upcoming movies maybe?
Is she really just doing this out of the goodness of her heart?
Did Stallone’s people pay Nielsen to do this, I wonder?
The last I read, Nielsen was not doing well financially or otherwise since her 1980s divorce from Stallone. Perhaps Stallone’s people offered to pay her to speak up publicly in his defense, and she could really use a pay-off.
From 2012, The Daily Mail:
All that aside, Nielsen’s defense of Stallone on this subject is not without flaws.
Nielsen is claiming she was married to Stallone at the time of the alleged incidents.
The fact that Nielsen and Stallone were married at the time of the accusations is something everyone already knew, and it’s a fact that was mentioned in the sex abuse allegations in the police and subsequent media reports –
All because the teen girl victim herself told the police in 1986 said that Stallone told her after allegedly assaulting her for her not to tell anyone about the incident or else he’d have to “beat her head in” because he and deLuca were married at the time (with Stallone being married to Nielsen in 1986).
Secondly, even if Nielsen was at the hotel during the time of that trip, where and when Stallone was filming the movie Over The Top, when the teen-girl was telling police these abuses took place, it does not stand to reason Stallone and Nielsen, were “joined at the hip” twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, that they were never apart.
During the alleged sexual exploitation of the teen girl by Stallone and De Luca, perhaps Nielsen was out shopping, dining, getting manicures, sipping a martini or two at the hotel bar, or lounging out by the pool.
Further, based on a report I saw by Doug Poppa, and if I am understanding his report correctly, it was intimated that Nielsen participated in (most likely non-consensual) sexual trysts with Stallone and Stallone’s half-sister, Toni-Ann Filiti (also known as Toni D’Alto).
And I say “most likely non-consensual” in the previous paragraph, given Stallone’s troubled past with his half-sister, who claimed for years that Stallone sexually assaulted her.
Source for the following:
Also, allegedly compromising photographs were taken at the Carlyle Hotel in New York in the 1980s. Photographs of Stallone, Filiti and Brigitte Nielsen, whom Stallone was married to from 1985 to 1987. These photos were allegedly taken prior to the 1987 settlement agreement.
Above link: photos of Sylvester Stallone and Brigitte Nielsen at Carlyle Hotel – showing Nielsen and Stallone were at that hotel in the 1980s, though these are obviously not the same set of photos referenced above. But these photos do place Nielsen and Stallone in that hotel in the 1980s.
Stallone’s half-sister Toni-Ann who died of cancer in 2012, alleged that her half-brother, Stallone, who was 18 years her senior, sexually, psychologically, and physically abused her from around 1979 to around 1987. I believe her allegations, for reasons I explain in a previous post on these matters.
If it’s true that Nielsen took “compromising photographs” comprised of herself in sexual acts with Stallone and Stallone’s half-sister Toni-Ann Filiti, I would not expect Nielsen to have the character or integrity to object to or care if she were to walk into a hotel room in Las Vegas and see her husband performing sex acts on a teen girl, though Stallone apparently thought she would care and become angry.
According to a woman on Twitter, Stefanie Iris Weiss, who was 13 at the time this incident took place in 1985, while Stallone and Nielsen were participating in a beach-front Vanity Fair magazine photo shoot in 1985, Stallone sent a life guard over to sexually proposition Weiss (who again, was only thirteen years old at the time).
Nielsen was with Stallone during that Vanity Fair photo shoot (as can be seen here, here, and here), so it’s not unlikely that if Stallone was allegedly willing to proposition a teen during a photo shoot on which Nielsen was present he would not also attempt to sexually exploit a teen girl at a hotel during the filming of a movie, even if Nielsen was on the grounds.
Here is one screen shot of Weiss’ Tweets (see previous post for more screen shots, or use the Tweet links below to view):
As we can see in Weiss’s Tweets, having people near-by, according to Weiss, even his wife Nielsen, did not prevent Stallone from allegedly “hitting on” and making sexual overtones to teen girls during a photo shoot on a beach.
As I noted on the last post about all this, the girl who was alleging that Stallone sexually attacked her was not the one who publicized any of this information, nor did she report this to the police.
A friend of hers at the time was the one who informed hotel staff of the matter, the staff called the Las Vegas police, and it was the police who contacted the girl, asking for an interview. Later, Doug Poppa of the Baltimore Post Express and then the Daily Mail published the contents of the police report.
The victim, the then-teen girl, has nothing to gain from any of this. She’s not the one who sought out police or media.
And I don’t care what the age of consent laws were in Vegas at the time of the alleged event: it’s morally wrong for a 40 year old man to have sexual relations with a teen girl.
According to a gossip site I linked to previously, Stallone was known to intentionally travel to states with low age of consent laws precisely so he could troll for very young girls.
A woman named Margie Carr claims that Stallone sexually assaulted her around 2000, in a gym they both visited.
We have about 4 or 5 different women saying over the years that Stallone sexually assaulted them. It’s not even just the one teen girl (now adult) from the Las Vegas hotel story from 1986; there are others.
I believe, based on all such reports I’ve linked to in this post and in previous posts, that the guy is a deviant, a serial sexual predator.
One of Stallone’s exes, Janice Dickinson, said when she became pregnant while dating Stallone, and he assumed he was the father of the baby, that he offered her a million dollars to abort the baby (also mentioned on this page).
That a man was supposedly willing to pay his girlfriend off to run out and abort a baby he believed they conceived together, because he could not be bothered to help raise the baby and take personal responsibility for his actions, speaks to his selfishness and lack of character.
I wouldn’t put it past this sort of guy, to yes, also make passes at, or sexually proposition under-age girls.
I would like to be wrong about all this, because I did enjoy Stallone’s “Rocky” character in the boxing movies – but I do think all these horrid accusations are true.
