Sources directly connected to the couple tell TMZ, the “Rocky” star wanted to get a Rottweiler for protection — protection for their family — but Jennifer did not want another dog. We’re told the 2 were at loggerheads over the pooch, and they each fiercely stuck to their positions.
Sly ended up getting the dog named Dwight … also the name of his character on his new show “Tulsa King.” Sly posted videos and photos of him with Dwight this month on Instagram, with the caption … “So incredibly happy with my newly acquired four legged friend ”DWIGHT“ my characters name from the Series, keep punching and keep barking !!! Thank you very much to Trainer and breeder Dave Smith and his wonderful wife !!!”
This explains the tattoo on Sly’s arm … he put a Rottweiler on his arm over the tattoo he had of Jennifer. The photo surfaced Monday on DailyMail, but that was AFTER Jennifer filed divorce docs — that happened last Friday.
It’s problematic on many levels. We’ve learned they have been shooting a 10-episode reality show about Sly, Jennifer and their daughters … they’ve already shot 9 episodes so the fate of that is unclear.
