“Bring some pretty young girls to be near me,” Stallone allegedly said.

Both sources told CNN that no formal complaints were made to Stallone or the director. According to them, personnel department employees learned about the accusations from messages on social media.

Series director and executive producer Craig Zisk told TMZ that "no such abuse occurred."

Social media posts detailing the allegations appeared on Facebook groups dedicated to the actors' experiences on the set of The King of Tulsa and went viral when screenshots were posted on X by TV writer Julie. Benson. Although she is not working on the film, Benson said she learned of the allegations from a friend who works as a supporting actor on the series.

According to both sources familiar with the current situation, the matter is currently being investigated through interviews with cast and crew. The second season of The King of Tulsa recently began filming, and the investigation is not changing production plans in any way, one of the sources said.

Stallone and the director continue to work as planned.
