ACTOR SYLVESTER STALLONE has said allegations that he sexually assaulted a 16-year-old in the 1980s are “categorically false”.

The UK’s Daily Mail reported today that the allegation was made against Stallone to police in 1986.

The report said that the woman did not press charges because she was “scared”, “humiliated and ashamed”.

It alleged that the girl met Stallone and his bodyguard at a hotel in Las Vegas, and got an autograph from the then-40-year-old.

She alleged that both men then sexually assaulted her in a hotel room.

The report said: “She said that after she got dressed, Stallone made the comment to her that they were both married men and that she could not tell anybody about the incident and if she did, that they would have beat her head in”.

In a statement, however, a spokesperson for the Rocky actor described the allegation as “ridiculous”.

They said: “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.

Stallone was in Vegas shooting the film Over the Top at the time the alleged assault occurred.
