Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Flavin have called it quits after more than two decades of marriage.

As reported by Closer, Flavin filed for divorce from her husband of 25 years on August 19.

The outlet reports that the 54-year-old former model filed the paperwork in Palm Beach County, Florida, just three months before celebrating their milestone anniversary.

Rumors of a breakup emerged on August 23, as the 76-year-old Rocky star had opted to get a tattoo of a bullmastiff, in order to cover up the ink work he'd had done previously, which featured his now-ex-wife's face on the upper half of his right arm. The bullmastiff in question just so happens to be Butkus, the dog from the actor's Rocky movies.

In a since-deleted Instagram post, the tattoo artist responsible for Stallone's new ink shared a snap of the tattoo, writing in the caption: “Greatest day in my tattoo career!! Thank you for trusting me with your tattoo today @officialslystallone.”

News of their split comes months after Stallone took to Instagram in May to post an image carousel dedicated to his and Flavin's 25th anniversary.

The nine photos included in the post were of the two of them cuddling, linking arms, and standing lovingly beside one another.

Stallone captioned the heartfelt post: "Happy 25th anniversary to my amazing wife. There is not enough words to describe what this incredibly selfless dedicated , patient, woman has meant to our lives and I only wish they could be another 25! Thank you sweetheart!"

Clearly touched by her husband's words, Flavin took to the comment section to write: "Thank you my love! I love you so much and we will be spending the next 25+ years together! Keep me laughing and I'm yours for the rest of my life!"

She also shared a gushing post of her own on her Instagram page as she shared with her followers six photos - both old and new - of her and her longtime husband.

Flavin captioned the images: "Happy 25th wedding anniversary to us! Thank you for always keeping me laughing, loving and protecting our beautiful family! Our marriage keeps getting better every year! I can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives together!"
