Sylvester Stallone’s ex-wife, Brigitte Nielsen, has come to the actor’s defence amid allegations he sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl in 1986. Nielsen says there is no way Stallone could have committed the sexual assault against the 16-year-old in Las Vegas because she was with him the entire time.
The Daily Mail wrote that the 16-year-old met Stallone in 1986 during the filming of Over the Top and he invited the girl to his hotel room at the Vegas Hilton where he, along with a bodyguard, sexually assaulted her.
Nielsen tells TMZ, “During the summer of 1986 we were newlyweds. I was inseparable from Sylvester when Over the Top was being shot in Las Vegas. The story claims that at approximately 8:30 in the evening during the shoot of the movie the person claims she was in our suite at the Hilton Hotel.”
Nielsen goes on to say, “This incident did not occur. Most of the day, I would watch his film, then we’d have dinner and go to our room. No other person was in the room with him, but me.” Nielsen isn’t the first to come forward to defend the actor against the allegations the Daily Mail reported.
Stallone’s Over the Top costar David Mendenhall, who the Daily Mail reported had allegedly introduced the 16-year-old girl to the actor, told TMZ, “It’s completely false that I introduced a 16-year-old female stranger to Mr. Stallone near an elevator in the Hilton, or anywhere else for that matter.” Mendenhall, who was 15 at the time of filming, asserted that his relatives were the only people he introduced to Stallone because they visited him on set.
Sources tell TMZ that Nielsen and Stallone haven’t spoken in nearly 30 years. Still, the model said, “I can say for certain that it is impossible for this incident to have occurred,” adding, “It’s unbelievable that Sylvester and his family have to suffer through this over something that never happened.”
The Daily Mail article, which includes what looks like a police report filed by the 16-year-old, says the girl decided she did not want the case prosecuted so Vegas police dropped it. Vegas police are claiming to have no record of the report.
