“Rocky” star Sylvester Stallone and his wife, Jennifer Flavin, are upending their lives in the Golden State for a new home in Florida.

The longtime spouses, who married in 1997, confirmed last week that they would “permanently” leave Southern California.

“We already have the place; it’s a done deal,” Stallone told his three daughters during the Season 2 premiere of their Paramount+ reality TV series, “The Family Stallone.”

Stallone and Flavin officially revealed their big move after more than a year of speculation. In December 2022, Sly reportedly listed his Hidden Hills mansion for upward of $22 million. Stallone and Flavin are set to relocate to their $35 million property in Palm Beach.

The “Rambo” and “Expendables” actor, 77, said he has lived in California since the start of his acting career in the 1970s. Flavin, 55, was born in Los Angeles and met her superstar husband in Beverly Hills. The model and the action star were seemingly headed for divorce in August 2022 but called off the split a month later.

Their three daughters — Sophia Rose, Sistine and Scarlet Rose — all seemed to be surprised by the news of the big move. Sophia Rose, 27, and Sistine, 25, both live in New York and were excited for their parents’ newest chapter. But youngest daughter Scarlet Rose, 21, wasn’t as enthusiastic.


“It’s my home,” said Scarlet Rose, a student at the University of Miami.

Flavin explained to them that the Stallone family home had started to feel like an “empty nest” after her children had gone off to college and begun living their own lives. “I need to change it up,” she said.

She added: “I raised all three of our daughters in California. Everything’s a memory to me — memories of them not being there anymore. So I needed a big change, and Sly went along with it.”

After trying to console his daughter, the “Creed” star reflected on his family’s roots in California. He said he knew that it was not going to be easy to move the primary Stallone home across the nation but his wife “really had her heart set” on the change of scenery.
