Sylvester Stallone's wife of 25 years, Jennifer Flavin, has pulled the plug on their marriage, but the writing was on the wall. The former model, Closer Weekly reported, quietly filed divorce documents in Florida on Aug. 19. In those docs, she accused the "Rocky" actor of hiding marital assets and asked a judge to put an end to it. Jennifer also made it clear she wants sole rights to their house in Palm Beach, Florida. Before the split news broke, photos showed that Sly had covered up a portrait of Jennifer's face that he had tattooed on his shoulder. An Aug. 24 report claimed Sly and Jennifer's marriage hit the skids after an argument over a dog (he wanted a new one, she didn't, and he got it anyway) that led them to bring up other issues that irked them. Sly denied they split over a dog. "We did not end the relationship on such a trivial argument. We just went in different directions," he told TMZ, adding, "I have the highest respect for Jennifer. I will always love her. She's an amazing woman. She's the nicest human being I've ever met."
Irene Bedard, the actress who voiced the title character in the 1986 Disney animated movie "Pocahontas," was arrested in Greene County, Ohio, on disorderly conduct charges. She was released from custody on Aug. 21. According to TMZ, police were conducting a welfare check on Aug. 19 following a report of a woman passed out in the bushes on a residential street. After arriving, authorities found the voice actress exhibiting a "range of emotions" in a nearby parking lot. While chatting with police, TMZ reported, Irene ran away and nearly knocked over a table. Police eventually backed the former Disney star into a window and grabbed her by the wrist for fear she would shatter the glass. Irene reportedly tried to pull away from an officer's grip in the process of her arrest, forcing additional officers to restrain her with handcuffs, according to the report. Then, while cuffed, she allegedly became dead weight, forcing police to hold her up while being taken to the cruiser.

Joe E. Tata, who played beloved Peach Pit owner Nat Bussichio on "Beverly Hills, 90210," passed away after an eight-year battle with Alzheimer's disease, it was announced on Aug. 25. He was 85.
