According to The Daily Mail this week and singer Elton John, Sylvester Stallone and Richard Gere both had a thing for Princess Diana. And at an upscale party in the 1990’s, Richard Gere seemed to be getting the edge over Stallone.
She was separated from Charles by this point, and Richard had broken up with Cindy Crawford. They ended up sitting in front of the fireplace together, locked in rapt conversation.
As the rest of us chatted, I couldn’t help notice a strange atmosphere in the room. Judging by the kind of looks he kept shooting them, Diana and Richard Gere’s newly blossoming friendship was not going down well with Sylvester Stallone at all.
This did not sit well with Stallone who confronted Gere in a hallway of the premises.
It transpired that he’d discovered Sylvester Stallone and Richard Gere in the corridor, squaring up to each other, apparently about to settle their differences over Diana by having a fist-fight.
Both were separated, before Gere renewed his offensive on Diana after dinner. A furious Stallone left the building and said; ‘I never would have come,’ as he was shown the door, ‘if I’d known Prince fuckin’ Charming was gonna be here.’ Then he added: ‘If I’d wanted her, I would’ve taken her!’
