When the girl turned 11, she lost her father, and that changed the usual flow of her life. Without a provider, their family lived in poverty, and it inspired Jennifer to start earning herself.

    I’m sorry but I just had to say something. A lot of websites have been posting inaccurate pictures of Seargeoh Stallone. The pictures you’re putting up are actually of an actor named Milo Ventimiglia. He appeared on Heroes, This is Us, Gilmore Girls, and Gotham. I think the confusion lies in the fact that he played Rocky Balboa Jr. in the Rocky Balboa movie in 2006 and was rather close with Sylvester Stallone for a while. There are a few actual pictures of Seargeoh out there though (even if the majority of the pictures you find when you look him up are photos of Milo). From what I can tell, the most recent is a close up picture of him in a white button-up (only the collar showing). He’s actually the first picture you see when you look him but, when you look further, you figure they must have made a mistake because of the many many many photos of Milo Ventimiglia.
