Stallone’s lawyer DA trying to appease ‘#MeToo generation’ with sex assault case

Los Angeles District Attorney's office spokesman Greg Risling said in an email that the case was being reviewed by its sex crimes task force, but did not give details.

Earlier last year, the Daily Mail reported that in 1986 a 16-year-old autograph-seeker told Las Vegas police she was sexually assaulted by Stallone and his bodyguard.

The allegations first came to light in December previous year, relating to an alleged assault which is said to have taken place in the 1990s. Police didn't say anything about the nature of the allegation against Stallone.

Stallone's camp has denied both of the allegations of assault, and even threatened to file claims accusing the alleged victims of filing false police reports.

"If this is the same woman, he categorically disputes this", Singer said. "At no time was Mr. Stallone ever contacted by any authorities or anyone else regarding this matter".

The Santa Monica police department said in December it was investigating a report of alleged sexual misconduct by Stallone.

The increasing scrutiny on allegations against Stallone come in the wake of the #MeToo movement and reports about widespread sexual abuse allegedly perpetrated by Harvey Weinstein and other powerful men in Hollywood.
