Jackie Stallone was a manifest devotee of plastic surgery, and had no compunction over shaving many years off her age, even when to do so suggested that she had given birth to Sylvester while barely pubescent.

Her singer son Frank Stallone confirmed on Instagram: "This morning my brothers and I lost our mother Jackie Stallone".

She also worked as a promoter of "G.L.O.W: Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling", the 1980s women's professional wrestling show that inspired the Netflix series "GLOW", portraying the manager of the outfit in the ring. I will never be able to call my mom again or have her yell at me why I never got married.

Stallone was born Jacqueline Frances Labofish on November 29, 1921, in Washington, DC.

As well as 74-year-old Rocky star Sylvester and Frank, Jackie was also mother to son Tommy and the late actress Toni D'Alto, whom she had with Anthony Filiti.

It is still not clear what caused the initial fire that ignited the chemicals, and so far no one has been held accountable. Damage was shown in an adjacent house where the floor was covered in glass and what appeared to be a pool of blood.

Stallone married her first husband Frank Stallone Sr, a hairdresser and occasional actor, in 1945. "She will be remembered forever for her charism and unconditional love". D'Alto died of cancer in 2012.

Jackie became a famous astrologer in the 1990s and made several appearances on television. Stallone married her third husband, Stephen Levine, in 1998.

Frank said he is "drowning my emotions in tears and too much vino" following his mother's death.

In 2005, Stallone had a memorable stint in the UK's version of Celebrity Big Brother, entering the house as a surprise contestant. "Because that's what separates me from the rest and that's what separates you from the rest - is we're very sensitive and we're sensitive to other people's feelings".

Upon seeing Stallone, a stunned Nielsen exclaimed: "Oh my God!"
