A representative for Sylvester Stallone has denied claims that the actor is a member of Donald Trump’s private Florida club Mar-a-Lago.

Reports in the US had suggested that the Rocky star had joined the exclusive Palm Beach member’s club, prompting a response from the actor.

Mar-a-Lago is well known to the public from Trump’s spell as US president. The twice-impeached politician had often hosted social gatherings at the club for friends and donors throughout his time in office.

After recently moving to the Palm Beach area, Stallone was spotted at the venue, leading to reports that he had joined.

However, in a statement provided to PA, Stallone’s representative confirmed that the actor is not a member, but had visited the premises as an “invited dinner guest”.

Michelle Bega said: “Sylvester Stallone has never been and is not now a member of Mar-a-Lago as has been falsely reported.

“He was an invited dinner guest at the Club but is not himself a member there.”

Stallone himself addressed the false reports on social media, writing: “I would like to say to everyone that this never happened.

“This is just not true. It NEVER ever happened.. I mean no disrespect to anyone, I’m simply not a member . . . So Keep Punching Folks.”

Mar-a-Lago has been owned by Trump since 1985.
