Yesterday, The Daily Mail ran a story saying that it had obtained a copy of a police report filed in 1986 alleging that Sylvester Stallone and his now-deceased bodyguard Michael De Luca had assaulted a 16-year old girl, forcing her to give both men oral sex and threatening to “beat her head in” if she reported what happened. At the time, the victim declined to press charges, saying, “I’m humiliated and ashamed, but I don’t want to prosecute.”

Now Stallone’s representative Michelle Bega has denied the allegations in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, saying: ““This is a ridiculous, categorically false story. No one was ever aware of this story until it was published today, including Mr. Stallone. At no time was Mr. Stallone ever contacted by any authorities or anyone else regarding this matter.” As THR notes, while Las Vegas police have verified that the report “appears to be authentic,” the original record of the report on file no longer exists “given the time which has passed.”
