‘Rocky’ actor Sylvester Stallone being probed for sexual assault

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

The case was presented by the Santa Monica Police Department.

"It is under review by our sex crime task force".

A Santa Monica Police Department spokesman did not immediately return messages seeking additional details about the referral.

The allegation against the star comes in the wake of the #MeToo movement that has focused attention on sexual harassment in Hollywood and beyond.

Russian women should not sleep with World Cup guests, warns MP
Unsurprisingly this lawmaker has made similarly prudish comments before, once criticizing the crop top of a local journalist. Pletneva previously criticised the #MeToo campaign against sexual harassment, tentatively spreading in Russian Federation .

One of Stallone's other attorneys, Blair Berk, has been talking to the investigating officer, Singer said, and she let it be known "that Stallone wanted to file a report that the woman - if it is the same woman - filed a false police report". However, media reports a year ago indicated a woman had filed a police report in Santa Monica against Stallone about an incident in the 1990s.

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.

The #MeToo campaign took off previous year following sexual assault allegations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. The Daily Mail in November reported that it had obtained a police report alleging that Stallone forced a 16-year-old girl into a threesome with himself and his bodyguard, Mike De Luca, at a Las Vegas hotel.

The accuser said she consented to have sex with Stallone but not De Luca, and that Stallone threatened to "beat her head in" if she told anyone. As Deadline notes, an attorney for Stallone told USA Today at the time that the actor "categorically disputes the claim".
