Sylvester Stallone76, and Jennifer Flavin54, officially filed to dismiss their divorce on October 7, and apparently their three daughters – Sophia25, Sistine24 and Scarlett Stallone, 20 – had a major role in their reconciliation. “Sly and Jennifer’s girls were heartbroken when their parents decided to end their marriage because they knew how much they still loved each other,” said a source close to the famous family. Hollywood Life EXCLUSIVELY. “Because they were women, they understood their mother’s concerns, but they wanted to support both of their parents anyway.”
One of Jennifer’s “concerns” that led to the divorce was her belief that Sylvester had relocated “assets from marital funds,” according to divorce documents obtained by TMZ. “Upon information and belief, the Husband has engaged in the willful exhaustion, depletion and/or waste of marital assets which has had an adverse economic impact on the marital estate,” the documents state.
However, once the Stallone girls spoke to each of their parents separately, per HL‘s source, they decided “there’s still a chance they can get back together.” The insider added: “No one knows Sly and Jennifer better than their girls and they could tell the love was still there just by the way they talked about the divorce and about each other.”
The talks led to Sistine, Scarlet and Sophia creating and executing a plan to save their parents’ marriage, which worked in the long run. “In a way, they almost acted like messengers and worked together to help address and eventually mend the issues that were between Sly and Jennifer,” the source explained. “It reminded them of how much they still love each other and how they really wanted to work it out because true love is hard to find, and they felt what they had was worth fighting for. It apparently worked because they decided to reconcile and it’s so sweet because their girls feel like they played a small part in it.”
Jennifer originally filed for divorce in August, but by September 19 reconciliation rumors were flying after the Escape plan actor posted a photo of him and Jennifer holding hands as well as a throwback photo of himself, Jennifer, and their three daughters smiling. “Wonderful….” he simply captioned the images. It was then reported that the divorce had been put on hold, and a report from Page six on September 23 claiming that they want to repair their relationship and stay together as a family. “They decided to meet again at home, where they talked and were able to work out their differences,” a rep for the actor told the outlet. “They are both very happy.”
The reconciliation news has Sylvester, Jennifer and their three beautiful daughters breathing a sigh of relief, according to a second EXCLUSIVE insider to Hollywood Life. “Everyone is so relieved that they’re giving it another shot because they really are soul mates,” they noted. “They put the time and work into their marriage to make sure they come back from this stronger than ever. The time apart made them both realize that what they have is worth fighting for.”
