Sylvester Stallone is now being investigated for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman in the 90's, and detectives say they are gathering evidence to determine whether the crime happened or not.

Police in Santa Monica, Calif., are investigating historic accusations of sexual misconduct against Sylvester Stallone after an alleged victim filed an official complaint. He denies the claim.

Technically, the alleged incident is past the statute of limitations for California.

The girl said she was left feeling "humiliated and ashamed" by the event and did not want to prosecute so the force dropped the case, according to the report.

Stallone, 71, admits to having spent three days with the woman in Israel during a movie shoot in 1987, but denies seeing her at all in 1990. She's also reportedly the ex-wife of a convicted hitman.

The Rocky star is not taking the recent allegations made against him lightly. The actor's attorney, Marty Singer, told the gossip rag that he and his client believe that the woman in question, who remains unidentified, filed a false police report with the Santa Monica Police Department. Stallone's team was allegedly tipped off about the report by an unnamed media outlet earlier this year, though the filing apparently wasn't confirmed until this month. The officers tried unsuccessfully to get her to press charges against the actor and his bodyguard, but she didn't. The accuser says she consented to have sex with Stallone but not De Luca, and that Stallone threatened to "beat her head in" if she told anyone.

Previously, Stallone's spokeswoman Michelle Bega described the Las Vegas allegation as a "ridiculous, categorically false story". No one was ever aware of this story until it was published today, including Mr. Stallone. "It never happened", a representative for Stallon stated.
