The Los Angeles District Attorney’s office is reviewing a sex crime case against legendary Hollywood actor Sylvester Stallone, 71.

A Spokesman from the  Los Angeles District Attorney’s office, Greg Risling confirmed this on Wednesday, saying the case was presented by police in Santa Monica, California.

The Santa Monica Police Department turned over the case, which was first reported to it in November 2017, Risling told CNN in an email.

According to Lt. Saul Rodriguez of the Santa Monica Police, the alleged incident at the center of the case took place in the 1990s.

 

In a statement to CNN, Stallone’s attorney, Martin Singer, said: “My client categorically denies the allegations.  It’s outrageous that the DA’s office and PD would announce this information because it makes the public think that there’s something there.”

Martin said the woman who made the complaint had a consensual relationship with his client in the 1980s.

“It’s not appropriate to try to ruin someone by doing this,” he said.

According to report, the case is being reviewed by a Los Angeles County task force that investigates possible sex crimes in the entertainment industry.
