Sage Stallone's mother has blamed his dental surgery for his death.
Sasha Czack - first wife of The Expendables
actor Sylvester Stallone - said her son was taking painkillers after having five teeth removed two weeks before he died. She told the New York Post
: "I told him not to do that. I've heard about people dying having multiple procedures done to your mouth. Do not have more than one tooth [pulled]."
When asked if he was taking painkillers for it, she answered: "Wouldn't you be?"
Sage, 36, was found dead at his home in Studio City, Los Angeles, last Friday (13.07.12) of a suspected drug overdose. The Los Angeles coroner confirmed pill bottles were recovered
from his house, but toxicology results could take up to six weeks to be released.
Sylvester, 66, said he was "devastated and grief-stricken" at hearing of his son's death. The pair had become close after filming 1990 movie Rocky V
together, in which Sage played his father's onscreen son.
Sage previously said of the filming: "When I was screaming 'You never spent time with me! You never spent time with my mother!' that was true. I was looking into my father's face and really saying that.
"I got a lot of things out. We broke into tears a few times. After the film, everything changed. We'd do anything for each other."
