“We left California for Florida because I’m incredibly happy,” says Sylvester Stallone’s wife.

Sylvester Stallone’s Wife Jennifer Flavin Speaks Out On The Family’s Move To Florida

In recent years, California has seen a significant exodus of its residents, including many A-list celebrities looking for a better life elsewhere. One of the latest high-profile individuals to make such a move is Sylvester Stallone and his family, who relocated to Florida in 2021. Now, his wife Jennifer Flavin is speaking out about their decision to leave California, saying she has no regrets about it.

“It’s an incredible move, I have to say I’m really happy with our move and our change,” said Flavin, 55, in a recent interview with Fox News. “I was born and raised there, two of our kids were born there, but now everyone’s out, our daughters moved to the East Coast … so there wasn’t really anything left for me in California. A few of our best friends also moved, so I think it’s [a] good change, just making new friends, living a totally different lifestyle, I love it, I’m really happy.”

This statement comes after Stallone, 77, addressed the move in his Netflix documentary “Sly,” saying, “I wasn’t moving because ‘Oh, wow, I wanted another beautiful view.’ Any time changing that paradigm which you become used to, it’s literally to jump-start that process again.”

Flavin clarified that their decision was not driven by concerns over crime in California, saying, “There’s crime everywhere, there’s crime in Florida, too, so I didn’t move because of crime.” She added, “I think California is probably the most beautiful state in the United States, I absolutely love it, but I just needed a change. I felt like I’ve been there long enough, and life is short, so I wanted to make a change and not just be sitting in one house the rest of my life.”

The family’s move is part of a larger trend of celebrities leaving California for other states. Dean Cain, known for his role as Superman, shared similar sentiments earlier this year when he explained that he fled the state due to its “terrible” policies. “The things that our leaders in California have been doing have driven out anybody who can really afford to get out. People are flocking out of there in droves,” he said.

Another star, Scott Baio, known for his role in “Happy Days,” also recently relocated to Florida due to rising homelessness and crime in California. He spoke out about the dire situation in a conversation with the Clay & Buck show, saying, “I see people defecating on the sidewalk. You see people in parks shooting up. There’s people passed out everywhere. I mean it. It’s not the isolated. It’s all over the place. And I’m about ready to get out of the state.”

This widespread exodus of celebrities from California reflects a growing trend of people leaving the state due to concerns over its policies and quality of life. The left-leaning leadership in California may need to reevaluate their stance on various issues if they hope to retain the likes of stars such as Stallone, Cain, and Baio.
