Brigitte Nielsen says the allegations of sexual assault on a 16-year-old against her ex-husband Sylvester Stallone are not true.

The Daily Mail reported last week that it obtained a copy of a police report that alleges Stallone sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl while filming the movie “Over the Top” in Las Vegas in 1986.

Stallone, 71, denied the allegations.

“This is a ridiculous, categorically false story. No one was ever aware of this story until it was published today, including Mr. Stallone,” a representative for Stallone said in a statement.

Nielsen told TMZ that she and Stallone were newlyweds during the summer 1986 and were together nearly all the time.

"I was inseparable with Sylvester when 'Over the Top' was being shot in Las Vegas," she said. "The story claims that at approximately 8:30 in the evening during the shoot of the movie the person claims she was in our suite at the Hilton Hotel."

Neilsen added that she watched Stallone on set most of the day, "then we'd have dinner and go to our room. No other person was in the room with him, but me."

Neilsen, now 54, and Stallone divorced less than two years after their marriage.

Stallone's co-star's comments on the allegations

David Mendenhall, 46, who played Stallone's son in the film also spoke to TMZ about The Mail's story, which claims he introduced the teen girl to Stallone.

"I was shocked when I read the Daily Mail article," Mendenhall told TMZ. "It's completely false that I introduced a 16-year-old female stranger to Mr. Stallone near an elevator in the Hilton, or anywhere else for that matter."

Mendenhall said his relatives who visited the set were the only people he introduced to the star.

The Mail reported it confirmed its story with retired Las Vegas Metro Police Department Detective Sgt. John Samolovitch, who led the sexual assault unit at the time.

The Las Vegas Police Department has no record of the so-called police report. A spokesperson for the Las Vegas police told The Independent its archives don't go that far back.
