Thirty-six-year old Sage Moonblood Stallone, Sylvester Stallone's son, was found dead at his Los Angeles home Friday by his housekeeper. The cause of death is still pending, but an autopsy on the late filmmaker has been completed. Sage's father issued a statement to TMZ:
"When a parent loses a child there is no greater pain. Therefore I am imploring people to respect my talented son's memory and feel compassion for his loving mother Sasha.
"This agonizing loss will be felt for the rest of our lives," adding, "Sage was our first child and the center of our universe and I am humbly begging for all to have my son's memory and soul left in peace."
While the cause of death is still unknown, a friend of the Stallone family told E! News that Sage "wasn't trying to take his life." Watch the interview below:
