Sylvester Stallone denies assault allegations

According to the alleged victim, who refused to be identified, Stallone and his bodyguard at the time, Mike De Luca, had inappropriate sexual contact with her in 1986.

Brigitte Nielsen is vehemently refuting a sexual assault allegation against her ex-husband Sylvester Stallone from shortly after they Wednesday in 1986. "I was inseparable with Sylvester when Over the Top was being shot in Las Vegas", Nielsen told TMZ.

"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", she told the tabloid.

The actor's representative blasted the "ridiculous, categorically false story" at the time, and now model/actress Nielsen, who was married to Stallone between 1985 and 1987, has come forward to deny the allegation. No one was ever aware of this story until it was published today, including Mr. Stallone. "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".

She later signed a no prosecution form and the matter was dropped.

The actor was shooting the film "Over the Top" in Las Vegas when the incident happened at the Hilton hotel where he was staying. The actor was also accused by his late half-sister, Toni-Ann Filiti, of being too aggressive with her, an allegation he also denied.

DeLuca gave her a key to Stallone's room on the 27 floor and told her to go up as soon as she could, the police report said.
