It’s going to be a “Rocky” split for Sylvester Stallone.

The actor, 76, has covered up a second tattoo dedicated to estranged wife Jennifer Flavin, who filed for divorce in August after 25 years of marriage.

Stallone once again tapped Oklahoma City artist Zach Perez to design a brightly covered leopard face to mask the tattoo of Flavin’s eyes on his left arm.

This is the second Flavin-themed tat Perez has covered for Stallone; shortly before news broke of the divorce filing, he transformed a huge portrait of her face into an image of Butkus, the dog from “Rocky.”

Following reports that a dramatic fight over a new (unrelated) dog named Dwight led to the demise of the couple’s relationship, Stallone set the record straight, telling TMZ, “We did not end the relationship on such a trivial argument.” He admitted they disagreed about “how to care for the dog,” however.

A canine companion wasn’t the original plan for Stallone’s first tattoo cover-up, either, with artist Mike DeVries saying Wonder Woman was the actor’s top choice.

DeVries told People he talked Stallone out of that idea, which he thought wouldn’t “work” because of the superhero’s signature tiara; “All of [Flavin’s] hair would just shine through,” he said.

While it was DeVries who inked the Flavin portrait back in 2007, Perez wound up covering the piece with Butkus.

Flavin “blindsided” Stallone by filing for divorce last month. The couple have been married for 25 years and share three daughters.


The “Rambo” star showed off his tattoo of Flavin’s face on a 2008 episode of “The View.”


One day before news broke that Flavin had filed for divorce, Stallone covered her portrait with one of Butkus, the famous dog from “Rocky.”
