Just a few months after losing his beloved son Sage Moonblood, Sylvester Stallone is dealing with another close family member death. The actorís younger half-sister, Toni-Ann Filiti, reportedly passed away on Sunday evening from lung cancer. She was just forty-eight.
According to Radar Online, Toni-Ann fought the disease as best as she could, but after her fate became clear, she decided to check out of the intensive care unit and spend what time she had left with her family. Mother Jackie Stallone reportedly opened up her home a few days ago, and thatís where her daughter passed.
Given the circumstances surrounding Toni-Annís passing, itís likely everyone close to her was prepared for the end, but still, that doesnít make her absence any less sad or troubling. By all accounts, she was a wonderful woman.
Pop Blendís sincerest thoughts go out to Toni-Annís entire family including Sylvester. The loss of a loved one is always hard to deal with, but the loss of two in a short amount of time is something no one should be forced to go through. According to The New York Daily News, Sly told his mother he couldnít take any more pain upon hearing the news. Hereís to hoping thereís nothing but positivity in the family for the next few years.
