Sylvester Stallone won’t be prosecuted over an historic r@pe allegation. The Expendables actor was reported to police in Santa Monica by a woman who claimed that they had had a consensual relationship in 1987, but that he had assaulted her in 1987 and 1990.
Although the unnamed woman provided witnesses, who she said she’d confided in at the time, the Los Angeles’ District Attorney’s office said thatthey did not corroborate her account and were not able to find any other evidence to back up her claims.
The case was rejected due to insufficient evidence, and because it falls well outside the statute of limitations.
She said: “This is a ridiculous, categorically false story. No one was ever aware of this story until it was published, including Mr. Stallone. At no time was Mr. Stallone ever contacted by authorities or anyone else regarding this matter. It never happened.
When the story was first reported, it was claimed that a police report was filed at the time of the alleged incident, but that the woman did not want to press charges because she was scared and humiliated by the ordeal, and signed a “no prosecution” form.
It was previously claimed that the veteran actor planned to take legal action against his accuser over her allegations, which he branded “ridiculous” and “false”, though it’s not known if that’s a course of action he still plans to take now that the case has been dropped.
