Reconciliation for Sean Penn and Madonna?
According to Perez Hilton, "Last night, Madonna was seen out having a quiet dinner with her first husband, Sean Penn. The former 80s power couple stopped in at the St. Regis Hotel for a long dinner at Adour. The pair reportedly enjoyed some lobster and milk fed veal and stayed for over 3 hours!"
Sean and Madonna's marriage lasted from 1985 to 1989, ending after a series of violent outbursts toward the celebrity press (and a felony domestic assault charge).
There have been rumblings and rumors of a "reunion" for a while. In 2008, when Madonna's marriage to Guy Ritchie was almost over, the Material Girl was spotted having drinks with Penn. Friends and colleagues found it interesting to see the two together at a Vanity Fair Oscars party in 2009. And during the filming of Milk, Penn reportedly texted Madonna after a scene where he kissed co-star James Franco. The message: "'I just popped my cherry kissing a guy. I thought of you. I don't know why."
By numerous accounts, Madonna was glad to be far, FAR away from the turbulent Penn as the '80s ended. But hey gang, it's a new decade and everyone has mellowed. Don't count your lucky stars out that things are over for good.
