Sage Stallone, Son of Sylvester, Dies of Possible Drug Overdose [UPDATED]

Sylvester Stallone's son Sage died last night of an apparent overdose on pills. While his death was initially thought to be a suicide, law enforcement now says there is no evidence that it was intentional. He was 36.

Sage Stallone had two notable acting gigs — both alongside his father — in Rocky V (as Rocky's son) and in Daylight. Sage, pictured above at Daylight's 1996 premiere, also dabbled in producing.

Sylvester Stallone's rep Michelle Bega gave TMZ the following statement—

UPDATE:
TMZ reports that Sage Stallone was dead for at least three days, and possibly as long as a week. Apparently no one had spoken to him since last Friday.
