While Sylvester Stallone’s career has been filled with high-profile successes, his personal life has been marked by triumphs and heartaches, particularly concerning his two sons, Sage and Seargeoh Stallone. Let’s delve into their lives and the challenges the Stallone family faced.
Sage Stallone: An Early Success Followed by a Tragic End
Sage Moonblood Stallone was born on May 5, 1976, in Los Angeles, California, to Sasha Czack and Sylvester Stallone. He grew up with a mix of siblings, including his full brother Seargeoh and three half-siblings.
Following his father’s footsteps, Sage graduated from Montclair College Preparatory School in 1993 and pursued a year of filmmaking at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.
From a guest appearance on ‘Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling’ to acting alongside his father in ‘Rocky V’ and ‘Daylight,’ Sage had a promising start in the entertainment industry. His talent was recognized with the ‘Best New Filmmaker’ award at the 2006 Boston Film Festival for his work on ‘Vic.’
However, Sage’s life was tragically cut short when he was found dead on July 13, 2012, at the age of 36. The autopsy and toxicology tests determined the cause of death as coronary artery disease. No illegal drugs were detected in his system, and the pain medication found was over-the-counter.
Seargeoh Stallone: Living Away from the Limelight
Seargeoh Stallone, born in 1979 in Los Angeles, is Sylvester’s second son with Sasha Czack. Unlike his older brother Sage, who followed their father into acting, Seargeoh’s life took a different path, largely shaped by his diagnosis of autism.
Diagnosed with autism at a young age, Seargeoh faced difficulties in communication and interaction. His parents were committed to supporting him, providing extensive counseling and autism-specific treatment to help him navigate life.
Sylvester Stallone has publicly discussed the challenges of raising a child with autism and his unique relationship with his son. In one of his previous interviews, he said:
“There is no real father-and-son thing there. I have to become his playmate. With a child like this, you have to put away your ego.”
Despite these challenges, Seargeoh appeared on screen in ‘Rocky II’ at only a few months old, playing the role of Rocky Balboa Jr.
Now in his 40s, Seargeoh lives a private life away from the public eye. Information about his current whereabouts and personal life remains limited. It is known that he resides with the family, possibly with his mother, but further details have not been verified.
