Is Sean Penn Swooning Over Madonna’s Muscley Arms Again?

From Us Weekly:

It seems Sean Penn is still “Hung Up” on ex-wife Madonna. Standing front-row at her Oct. 11 MDNA show in Los Angeles, the single actor, 52, couldn’t take his eyes off the iconic star, to whom he was married from 1985 to 1989.

“Their chemistry was off the charts,” a fellow concert-goer raved in the Oct. 29 issue of Us Weekly. “Madonna seemed to be performing entirely for Sean. And he was saying things like ‘Amazing!’ and ‘She’s so hot!’”

The pair, whose constant fighting throughout their brief marriage earned them the nickname “the Poison Penns,” met on the set of the music video for the singer’s hit “Material Girl” in 1985 and wed just months later. In 1986, the pop star released her third album, True Blue, which was inspired by and dedicated to her new husband, “the coolest guy in the universe.”

The relationship was far from perfect, though, marred by hot-blooded outbursts and arguments. In 1989, they called it quits and divorced. Penn went on to marry actress Robin Wright, and Madonna wed director Guy Ritchie — but the former loves never could let go of each other completely. In January 2010, they broke bread over a three-hour dinner at Adour Alain Ducasse, sparking rumors of a reconciliation.

“They’ve remained close friends,” a pal told Us. “But they are fire and fire together romantically. She can only be with someone she can control.”

That’s certainly not Penn. And in any case, Madonna already has a boyfriend: Brahim Zaibat, 26, whom she has been dating for the last two years.

“Madonna’s friends wish she’d get back with Sean,” the source said. “He will always be the love of her life.”

Ick. Something about picturing Madonna and Sean Penn together, now, completely grosses me the f-ck out. Like, entirely. And what’s worse is that it’s probably the Madonna part of the Madonna-Sean Penn thing that makes it all the much worse than what it was when it was the Sean Penn-Scarlett Johansson thing.

  • Wasn’t there an incident the first time around in which he tied her to a chair and tortured her right before they really broke it off?

    I feel like he’s on my list of people to crucify for domestic violence along with Chris Brown, Kate Gosselin, etc.

    • Yeah he definitely hit her and tortured her. I think he raped her, too. I mean, Chris Brown is a turd, but Sean Penn makes him look like a saint. This is what I have found:

      “June 1987, Madonna was rushed to the Cedars Sinai hospital for an X-ray after her then-husband—Sean Penn hit her across the head with a baseball bat. At the time, they had been having a heart-to-heart talk about reconciling.

      Madonna did not make an official complaint because Penn was about to serve a short jail term for attacking a film extra and violating the probation he’d been given for punching a fan. It was a decision she would come to regret. In the late afternoon of December 28, 1988, Penn scaled the wall surrounding the Malibu house and found Madonna alone in the master bedroom.

      According to a report filed by Madonna with the Malibu sheriff’s office, the two began to quarrel. Penn told her he owned her “lock, stock and barrel”. When she told him she was leaving the house, he tried to bind her hands with an electric cord. Screaming and afraid, Madonna fled from the bedroom. Penn chased her into the living room, caught her and bound her to a chair with heavy twine. Then he threatened to shave her hair. Penn was “drinking liquor straight from the bottle” and the abuse went on for nine hours, during which he smacked and forced Madonna to perform a “degrading sex act” on him.

      He went out to buy more alcohol, leaving Madonna bound and gagged. Some hours later, he returned and continued his attacks, then finally untied her. Madonna then fled the house and ran to her car. Penn ran after her and was banging on the windows of her Thunderbird while she spoke to police on her mobile phone. Fifteen minutes later, she staggered into the sheriff’s office.”

  • Maybe Sean tied her to a chair because they are both into bondage? Nothing wrong with that & it can easily be misconstrued for a violent act by people who are unfamiliar with BDSM.
