Sylvester Stallone's wife Jennifer Flavin files for divorce

Sylvester Stallone's wife Jennifer Flavin is seeking a divorce from her husband of 25 years. 

Flavin, 54, filed a petition "for dissolution of marriage" Friday in Palm Beach County, according to online court records. 

The former model said the marriage was "irretrievably broken," according to court documents obtained by The Palm Beach Post, part of the USA TODAY Network 

In a statement to USA TODAY via Stallone's rep Michelle Bega, the "Rocky" actor, 76, said, "I love my family. We are amicably and privately addressing these personal issues." 

Stallone and Flavin got married in 1997 and share three daughters: Sophia, 25, Sistine, 24, and Scarlet, 20 

The document indicates that Flavin is requesting that she "be compensated and made whole by receiving and unequal distribution of the marital assets in her favor." 

Flavin is also seeking exclusive use of the Palm Beach estate during the pendency of the divorce proceedings, records show. 

"Happy 25th anniversary to my amazing wife," the "Creed" actor wrote. 

"There is not enough words to describe what this incredibly selfless dedicated , patient, woman has meant to our lives and I only wish they could be another 25! Thank you sweetheart!"
