According to a Jan. 30 Radaronline.Com report, several taped conversations between actor Sylvester Stallone and his half-sister Toni-Ann Filiti have been destroyed. The destruction of the recordings was reportedly part of a settlement agreement or blackmail agreement, depending on whom you ask, between the siblings. The agreement arose out of abuse allegations asserted by Filiti against the actor.
Relying in part on documents obtained by The New York Post’s Page Six, RadarOnline.com reported that an agreement was signed 26 years ago, wherein the actor agreed to pay his half-sister a $2 million settlement, including a $16,666.66 monthly stipend for her natural life and a $50,000 trust fund for medical and psychiatric expenses.
The settlement documents allegedly include references to personal and physical injury claims against the “Rocky” star. The actor’s mom, Jackie Stallone recently weighed in on the tapes, opining that “This was nothing more than a shakedown.”
Attorney memoranda from the Filiti’s attorneys to their client reveal some sort of agreement to destroy the tapes. “This is to acknowledge receipt from you of a total of six cassette tapes, four of which contain conversations between you and your older half-brother who we are referring to as S.” reads a letter dated Aug. 3, 1987. “You understand that in accordance with the terms of the settlement agreement between you and S., I and your father are required to destroy all tapes.”
The truth behind the confusing allegations, the settlement and the tapes may never be fully revealed as Filiti succumbed to a battle with cancer last year. Stallone has denied the allegations levied against him.
