A spokesperson for the District Attorney's office in Los Angeles has said that a case has been presented to police in Santa Monica.

Limited details have been released.

Reps for Stallone did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment. The first involves the rape allegation from 1990, and a source close to the investigation said that this is the case being reviewed by prosecutors.

Santa Monica police confirmed to United States entertainment website Deadline that the complaint was made by a woman who in November 2017 said she meant to file a police report over an alleged sexual assault in the 1990s. A legal representative for Stallone denied the allegations for a second time on Wednesday.

California has a complex statute of limitations for criminal prosecutions of sexual abuse but offenses must generally be prosecuted within 10 years.

Hundreds of celebrities and powerful people, including actor Kevin Spacey and longtime broadcast journalist Charlie Rose, have been accused of sexual harassment in the wake of the Weinstein scandal.

A sexual assault case against Sylvester Stallone is being reviewed by the L.A. District Attorney's office.

In response to the allegation, the LA Times reports, Stallone's lawyers filed a complaint with Santa Monica police alleging that the woman who made the claim against the actor filed a false police report. "No one was ever aware of this story until it was published today, including Mr. Stallone".
