Jackie Stallone, the mother of actor Sylvester Stallone, has just passed away. The celebrity was an astrologer as well as a women’s wrestling promoter. Furthermore, she was also well known among British TV watchers for her act on Celebrity Big Brother. She passed away this Monday morning. Her son, singer Frank Stallone, confirmed the news. Her age was 98 when she died. The cause of her death has not yet been revealed.
Frank shared a gallery of photographs of his mother covering her life. Frank revealed that his mother had “passed away during her sleep just like she wished.” He added that “her mind was as sharp as a razor up until the day she died”. Furthermore, he expressed that “she never wore a mask and was a true revolutionary girl.”
What Did Her Sons Have to Say?
“She was a remarkable woman who would work out every day. Her attitude was full of spunk. She was such a fearless woman,” the singer wrote. “It was quite impossible not to like her. She was such an energetic and flamboyant lady. She was born on November 29th, 1921 in Washington DC. Furthermore, the lady lived through the depression and World War II. I could talk to her for hours knowing about her 20’s 30’s and 40’s. It almost felt like a history lesson.”
