Sylvester Stallone’s wife, Jennifer Flavin, has filed for divorce, Page Six can confirm.

The former model, 54, filed paperwork to dissolve her 25-year marriage to the “Rocky” star, 76, in Palm Beach County, Fla., on Aug. 19.

Stallone addressed the news Wednesday, telling TMZ, “I love my family. We are amicably and privately addressing these personal issues.”

Four days after Flavin’s filing, the actor made headlines for covering a large tattoo of his spouse’s face on his shoulder.

Stallone replaced the tribute with ink of Butkus, the famous bullmastiff from the “Rocky” movies.

Tattoo artist Zach Perez showed the cover-up in an Aug. 16 Instagram post.

“Greatest day in my tattoo career!!” he gushed. “Thank you for trusting me with your tattoo today @officialslystallone.”

After many fans commented on the social media upload to ask whether Flavin minded the shady move, Perez deleted the slideshow from his feed.

Stallone’s publicist, Michelle Bega, subsequently told the Daily Mail that the Oscar nominee “loves his family” and explained away the updated tattoo.

“Mr. Stallone intended to refresh the tattoo image of his wife, Jennifer. However, the results were unsatisfactory and, unfortunately, unfixable,” she told the newspaper. “As a result, he had to cover the original image with a tattoo of his dog from ‘Rocky,’ Butkus.”
