Sylvester Stallone, 77, and his wife Jennifer Flavin, 55, were recently spotted enjoying a shopping spree in London's Mayfair district. The Hollywood legend, known for his role in Rocky, and his wife were seen admiring luxury watches at the independent family-run store, Maunder Watch, located in Burlington Arcade. Sporting a casual look, Stallone wore a black hoodie, jacket, and sunglasses, while Flavin rocked a stylish grey coat with a faux fur collar. The couple appeared relaxed and in good spirits as they held hands while walking through the crowd.
The shopping trip comes shortly after Stallone opened up about the "devastating" death of his son Sage in his newly released Netflix documentary, Sly. Sage, who passed away in 2012, played Stallone's on-screen son in Rocky V. The documentary reveals that some aspects of the film's storyline were inspired by the real-life relationship between Stallone and Sage.
In the documentary, Stallone discusses how he would use his writing to fulfill certain aspirations he had in his own life. He admitted that he had put fame and success before his family, leading to "radical and devastating" consequences. However, Sage acknowledged that after the film's release, things changed for the better between him and his father. They were able to express their emotions and strengthen their bond.
Despite the tragic loss of his son, Stallone has continued to focus on his career and family. He is a father to three daughters, Sophia, Sistine, and Scarlet, with Jennifer, and has two sons from his first marriage. Stallone's resilience in the face of personal tragedy serves as an inspiration to many.
As Stallone and Flavin indulged in a bit of retail therapy, their outing showcased their love and support for each other. The couple's relaxed and happy demeanor was evident as they strolled through the streets of Mayfair, hand-in-hand. Their shopping trip not only demonstrated their admiration for luxury watches but also served as a reminder of the importance of cherishing loved ones amidst life's challenges.
