SYLVESTER Stallone’s mom, Jackie Stallone, has reportedly died at the age of 98. 

The matriarch of the famous Hollywood family passed away from unknown causes recently, according to TMZ. 

The outlet also reported that exact circumstances surrounding her death are currently unclear.

In addition to bringing the legendary Rocky Balboa into the world, Jackie was also mom to singer Frank Stallone and late actress Toni D’Alto.

The famed celebrity astrologer had married three times in her life - first to her sons father, Frank Stallone Sr. 

They tied-the-knot in 1945 and had their two boys in their 12-year-marriage however, they divorced in 1957. 

Jackie went on to marry Anthony Filiti - whom she shares daughter Jackie with - in 1959.

They divorced sometime later, though the year of their separation was not revealed publicly.

In 1998, she got hitched to her current spouse, Stephen Levine.

The Washington, D.C. native is survived by her husband, three kids and seven grandchildren.

She was a prominent business woman who also previously held a career as a dancer and as a women's wresting promoter.

The entertainer first appeared on screen in the 1980's on the popular wrestling show GLOW: Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling.

In January 2005, Jackie joined the UK’s version of Celebrity Big Brother as a "surprise" housemate.

She was brought onto the show to ruffle feathers in the house - as her former daughter-in-law Brigitte Nielsen - with whom she notoriously did not get along, was also a contestant.

We all remember uttering those immortal words "yeah Jackie" when she entered the house.

She was voted out first by viewers after spending just four days in the house.
