- He was presented with a certificate of recognition by California Gov. 'Arnold Schwarzenegger' (qv) for filming _Rocky Balboa (2006)_ (qv) in Los Angeles at a time when other filmmakers are moving their business to cheaper states or overseas locations to cut costs. (22 December 2005).
- On June 27th, 1998, his second daughter, 'Sistine Rose Stallone' (qv) was born, with third wife 'Jennifer Flavin' (qv).
- 14 February 2002 - Sylvester sued his former business manager, Kenneth Starr, for giving him bad business advice. He claims $17M in damages. Part of the advice was for him to hold onto his shares in Planet Hollywood, the now bankrupt restaurant chain, despite it already being in a financial bind.
