Sylvester Stallone has opened up about the devastating loss of his son and called for an end to speculation over the tragedy.

The Hollywood actor's eldest son, Sage, from his marriage to Sasha Czack, was found dead at his home in Los Angeles on Friday.

A post-mortem examination on Sunday proved inconclusive and family members will now have to wait up to six weeks for the results of toxicology tests to find out what happened to the 36 year old.

Stallone has now spoken publicly for the first time about the tragedy and released a moving picture showing him embracing Sage as a youngster.

The Rocky star tells TMZ.com, "When a parent loses a child there is no greater pain. Therefore I am imploring people to respect my talented son's memory and feel compassion for his loving mother Sasha. This agonizing loss will be felt for the rest of our lives. Sage was our first child and the centre of our universe and I am humbly begging for all to have my son's memory in full left in peace."

It has also emerged the actor's son was due to marry his girlfriend in Las Vegas in the coming weeks.

The news was confirmed my Sage's attorney, George Braunstein, who has decided against naming the 36 year old's fiancee.

He tells E! News, "He was very creative, energetic and very full of life. We were just joking about how he was going to get married and have a fun marriage... The last conversation I had with him he was telling me about how he was getting married, and he was planning on some kind of exciting costume wedding in Las Vegas. He was up and positive about everything."

Braunstein also revealed the wedding was due to take place as early as next weekend.
