Sylvester Stallone previously said it would be “mass suicide” if his model wife Jennifer Flavin ever left him.
A few months before filing for divorce, Stallone and Flavin appeared as guests on their daughters’ podcast, “Unwaxed with Sophia and Sistine Stallone.” The two discussed their relationship in depth months before ending their 25-year marriage.
“If she were to walk out of my life, it would be mass suicide — which suggests that I have multiple personalities,” Stallone said on the podcast, which was reported by Entertainment Tonight in January.
Flavin also gave a glimpse of how Stallone has kept his life “very organized” for the past two decades.

“I keep him super organized, so I do everything. From getting him coffee from when we wake up to putting him to bed, every morning to bringing him cookies in bed, then going downstairs,” Flavin explained. She added, “And then we’re ready. I make you breakfast in the morning and then I make sure you’re all good for the day.”
“I go by your schedule, and then you tell some joke, I laugh,” she added of the couple’s routine. “That’s what drives us, because I laugh, and I laugh, and I laugh, because he’s so funny. Sly is the funniest guy I’ve ever met, and I’m telling you, I’ve hung out with a lot. Funny comedian. He Cracks me up.”
The “Samaritan” star noted that the couple’s marriage was successful because Flavin always did his own thing.
“I think for a happy marriage you have to let people follow their natural instincts,” the “Rocky” actor said during the podcast. “Some people don’t want to work, some people want to work. That was her thing. She’s been on her own since she was 12, 13, so I thought, ‘You know what? Let her go’.”
“I don’t understand when people try to subjugate others and put a lion’s paw on them and not let them do what they want to do, and then you come home and you wonder why your wife is in a bad mood,” he later added. “…I think that’s the worst thing, to get in the way of someone’s dreams, just to crush them. Then don’t marry her. Don’t marry her. Don’t marry him.”

She felt that Flavin helped the marriage survive.
“I think that was the biggest thing that helped our marriage because I made my own money. I paid my own bills and I did very well. So I didn’t need Sly’s money. His movie, I’m not an actress. I don’t need any of his friends. was not
“It’s very rare in this town.”
