Sylvester Stallone's son Sage died of a heart attack, not drugs, according to a report from the coroner's office.After Stallone's body was found in July, there was wide speculation that he had died of a drug overdose, perhaps from pain meds. But the coroner's office said that Sage didn't have any drugs in his system at the time of his death, and died from natural causes.

Stallone was 36, which is pretty young to have a heart attack, but the coroner said it found evidence that Stallone had heart disease.
