Her attractive face and build also landed her numerous modelling contracts. However, since her teenage years, Flavin faced a constant struggle with acne. While most teens and young adults go through this, Flavin was in the media business. Hence, her outlook mattered a great deal to her. After trying countless skin remedies and skincare brands, the model started her own skincare line.
While she was undeniably beautiful at a young age, even at the age of 54, she still radiated beauty. Flavin truly aged like fine wine, and even in her middle age looks extremely attractive.

Other products from Serious Skincare also tackle many age-related skin problems, such as fine lines and wrinkles.
Furthermore, the diverse price range of her products makes them accessible to the general public as well. Flavin’s brand has also been featured on Home Shopping Network (HSN) numerous times and is truly a brand to look out for. Largely through her entrepreneurial efforts, Jennifer Flavin managed to make quite a living for herself. The Rocky star’s wife’s net worth comes out to be approximately $10 million USD.
Marriage to Sylvestor Stallone
During the very early stages of her career, Flavin started getting linked with actor Sylvester Stallone. The two met each other in a restaurant in 1988 in Beverly Hills. At this time, the young Jennifer Flavin was just 20 years old, whereas Stallone was 42. The pair dated till 1994, when Stallone confessed his affair with Janice Dickinson. However, in 1995, the pair rekindled their romance and tied the knot 2 years later, in 1997. The marriage took place at The Dorchester Hotel, followed by a chapel ceremony at the Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire.
Flavin and Stallon have three daughters, namely Sophia (25), Sistine (24), and Scarlet (20). Sistine Stallone is also a model and actress, like her mother.
For 25 years, the pair seemed to live a happy and fulfilled life with each other. For their 25-year Silver Jubilee, the couple shared some heart-touching captions and pictures of each other on their Instagram accounts. Unfortunately, recently, in August 2022, Flavin filed for divorce from Stallone. The news took the media by storm as many fans did not see this coming.
Both Sylvester and Jennifer prefer to keep their personal lives out of the media. As a result, they asked for privacy during these testing times. From the looks of it, it seems like the daughters are on their mother’s team as Flavin posted a picture of the four of them, captioning it “The Four of us Forever.”
