He is one of the most successful actors of all time, but Sylvester Stallone wasn’t always alone in his incredible journey — his now-estranged wife Jennifer Flavin Stallone was by his side for more than 30 years of it.
Upon meeting in 1988, Sylvester was already well known and had established himself as an action hero legend. Jennifer, on the other hand, was just starting off her career as a model. But of course, they hit it off and ended up tying the knot in 1997.
“I’ve never had more fun. I learned that from my wife … It took me 19 years to realize she’s always right,” the Rocky star jokingly told The Daily Telegraph in 2010. “I realized that women have a knack, at least Jennifer, for making incredibly erudite, wise, smart decisions. I always leap without looking.”
Despite what seemed like the perfect marriage, Closer exclusively confirmed in August 2022 that the couple called it quits after 25 years of marriage. Jennifer filed for divorce on August 19 in Palm Beach County, Florida.

Jennifer has shown up on red carpet events
Jennifer is always supporting her man, as she has appeared numerous times at events next to her love. In 2020, she and Sylvester were side-by-side at the premiere of DAZN’s One Night: Joshua VS. Ruiz, a documentary produced by Sylvester.
