Action movie veteran Sylvester Stallone has denied allegations of an historic sexual assault that took place in the 1980s, after the Daily Mail uncovered a police report filed at the time.

The report alleged that Stallone forced a 16 year old female fan into having a threesome with him and his then-bodyguard, Michael de Luca, in a Las Vegas hotel room in July 1986. It also claimed the actor threatened to “beat her head in” if she told anyone, according to the report.

The case was later dropped and no charges made against Stallone, after the girl decided against pursuing things further.

However, Stallone’s spokesperson Michelle Bega labelled the allegations as “a ridiculous, categorically false story” in a statement issued to the same publication on Thursday (November 16th). “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.”

Laura Meltzer, a spokesperson for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, told The Independent that the department’s records didn’t go back far enough to confirm the authenticity of the report.

However, she did say that the formatting of the report was consistent with procedures at the time, and the original Daily Mail report cited a retired detective sergeant, John Samolovitch, who stated that the officer’s report was real.

The report says that the girl met Rocky star Stallone (now 71 years old, and 40 at the time) when she stayed at the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel, where the actor was also stationed when he was filming the movie Over The Top.

The allegations against Stallone come in the context of a large number of high-profile Hollywood figures and politicians being accused of sexual misconduct by women and men over the last six weeks.
