Don't bank on Sylvester Stallone's home appearing on Through The Keyhole in the near future. The action star has stumbled into a hornet's nest of controversy after plans to sell his five-bedroom Miami mansion to the Orient Express Hotel chain were leaked to his ultra-affluent neighbours. Naturally, the jet-set residents were more than peeved to discover that Orient Express hope to renovate the mansion into a flash villa-style complex. To win over the neighbours, which include Madonna, Sly and wife Jennifer Flavin held a special presentation on his lawn, stressing that the reported $24.7m deal would not destroy the historic nature of the area. Unfortunately, everyone left unmoved - voting down the project 16-0 and arguing that it would bring heavy traffic and unwanted commercial development to their sleepy haven. Such an attitude could block a zoning approval for Orient Express, effectively ruining the deal and forcing Sly to shop around for a more suitable resident.
