Dolph Lundgren, 64, and his fiancee Emma Krokdal, 25, looked relaxed and happy during their latest outing together. The actor and the beauty matched in black outfits, including a t-shirt and shorts for Dolph and a cropped tee and shorts for Emma, as they ran errands together in the West Hollywood area Aug. 5. Emma also wore sunglasses and had her hair down as they both topped off their looks with sneakers.
The Rocky franchise is well known for its heated battles in the boxing ring, but outside of the epic action movies, the legal battle over the rights to the films continues. Now, actor Dolph Lundgren, who played Ivan Drago in Rocky 4, has announced his support for Sylvester Stallone in the dispute.
Saturday night is date night – just ask Dolph Lundgren, who took his future wife, Emma Krokdal, out to eat at Catch Steak in WeHo on July 30. Dolph, 64, looks dapper in a silvery blazer, white button-up shirt, and a pair of black jeans. Emma, 25, sported a pair of high-waisted white shorts, a sheer black long-sleeve top, and a pair of strappy pumps. She accessorized the outfit with large hoop earrings and a blue Balenciaga handbag. At one point, the two lovebirds strolled hand-in-hand down the L.A. sidewalk. Dolph seemed to take a moment to sign a few autographs before making his way into the restaurant.
Sylvester Stallone was not happy when the press leaked that a Rocky spinoff is in the works. The new film is reportedly called Drago and focuses on Dolph Lundgren’s character Ivan Drago. Sylvester called out Dolph and the producer Irwin Winkler for “exploiting” the characters and trying to make money without him, under his nose.

Over the weekend it had seemed as though the on-screen feud between Sylvester Stallone and Dolph Lundgren's characters in the Rocky universe was extending to real life. Stallone had taken to social media to criticize the development of Drago, a spin-off to be centered on Lundgren's character Ivan Drago, and his son – Victor. While most of the criticism was directed at Rocky producer Irwin Winkle, the actor also expressed displeasure at Lundgren accepting a role in the spin-off behind his back. Lundgren has now come out to "set the record straight" clarifying that he was unaware of Stallone's non-involvement with the spin-off.
Dolph Lundgren Is Setting The Record Straight About His ‘Possible’ Drago Spinoff In The ‘Rocky’ Franchise
Fans of Rocky and its subsequent sequels may have been brokenhearted to learn that Sylvester Stallone was beefing with Rocky producers after rumors of a potential Drago spinoff (starring Dolph Lundgren) leaked on the internet. According to Stallone, he was never told of the movie and doesn’t want his fans to be “exploited.”
“Just to set the record straight regarding a possible ‘Drago’ spinoff. There’s no approved script, no deals in place, no director and I was personally under the impression that my friend Sly Stallone was involved as a producer or even as an actor,” Lundgren wrote. “There was a press leak last week which was unfortunate. In touch with Mr. Balboa – just so all the fans can relax…There ya go.”
