Sylvester Stallone Blackmailed by His Own Sister for Years & You Won't Believe for How Much
Posted by Jacqueline Burt
I've always kind of rolled my eyes at the "mo' money, mo' problems" concept, but it definitely seems to be true in Sylvester Stallone
's case. First there was the tragic death of his son Sage
, now comes the disturbing revelation that the 66-year-old actor was blackmailed for years by his late half-sister
, Toni-Ann Filiti
. According to recently released documents, Stallone paid Filiti off in 1987 when she threatened to accuse him of abusing her physically for years -- even though Stallone always denied Filiti's accusations (and their mother, Jacqueline Stallone
, still stands by her son).
And wait until you hear the astronomically high price
At "the height of his career," Lawyers drew up a settlement which required Stallone to play Filiti "$2 million
plus an additional $16,666.66
per month for the duration of her lifetime, with a $50,000
a year trust for psychiatric and medical expenses."
