The Stallone family is in mourning. On Monday, September 21, the TMZ site announced the death of Jackie, the mother of Sylvester Stallone, at the age of 98. A “recent” death affirmed the family of the astrologer, known to skim for many years the television sets, but also, the red carpets at the side of the star of Rambo.
A true jack of all trades, Jackie Stallone has never hesitated to use the fame of her son Sylvester to also make her talk in the media. Often cited as an example of the ravages of cosmetic surgery, which she admits having abused, she is also famous for practicing rumpology, a divinatory art which consists in reading the future in the intergluteal groove. Born in 1921 in Washington, Jackie Stallone, née Jacqueline Labofish, was the mother of three children, Sylvester and Franck, born from her marriage to Francesco Stallone, and actress Toni d’Alto, who in 2012 died of cancer .

A true sports addict, especially fitness junkie, in the 1980s Jackie Sylvester was the first woman to have a daily TV show on exercise and weightlifting in Washington, the Daily Mail reports, which prompted her to open her own women’s gym, Barbella’s. In the 1980s, Jackie Stallone was also the producer of GLOW, which featured women’s wrestling on television, and which was the subject of a series on Netflix. Sylvester Stallone’s mother also made her television career on the British show Celebrity Big Brother, during two seasons, where she notably reunited with her ex-daughter-in-law, Brigitte Nielsen, who was married to the Rocky actor from 1985 to 1987.
