Sources don’t know much about what’s going on between Madonna and Sean Penn, but it has been reported that they’ve been spending an awful lot of time together. The two have met during galas, Penn has been spotted at a few of Madonna’s tour stops, and last night they were spotted at a fundraiser together.
The two hit the red carpet at last night’s Help Haiti Home gala benefiting the J/P Haitian Relief Organization. While inside, sources said the former couple posed with Madonna’s children, Mercy and David.
According to E!, Madonna didn’t mention her ex-husband when asked what brought her out of her busy schedule to attend the gala. Instead, she said, “Haiti.” That said, once Madonna was in the gala, she decided to say a few touching words about ex-husband Sean Penn.
In what was said to be a surprise to those in attendance, Madonna gave a performance of the famous Edith Piaf song, “La Vie en Rose” while playing a ukulele. During the performance, Madonna sent some loving words in Sean Penn’s direction.
“I want to say Sean that I love you from the moment that I laid eyes on you and I still love you just the same.”

In recent months, the tide has been turning the rumors that the exes have found common ground as friendly past loves into something a bit more romantic. Madonna told a crowd on one of her tour stops about a letter Penn had recently written her. In the letter, he explained that he finally understood her craft. After dedicating the song, “True Blue,” to him in concert, she said, “He finally appreciates my art. And that is what I have to say about marriage, okay? Thirty years later.”
As the Inquisitr reported, Penn took his daughter, Dylan, to Madonna’s concert during her Rebel Heart Tour when they were in New York. Dylan got to meet Madonna backstage. Penn’s daughter told Entertainment Tonight about getting a chance to connect with her father’s first wife.
“She’s incredible. She’s 50-something years old, and she’s doing it like she’s 20.”
She continued with her thoughts on their relationship.
“I think he just really admires her work. They’re just really good friends and I think it’s sweet that they can have this relationship.”

Prior to Penn reuniting with Madonna, he was engaged to actress Charlize Theron and was ready to adopt a baby girl, named August, who Theron ended up adopting by herself. Rumor has it that Theron wound up blocking Penn’s calls and icing him out after their trip to Cannes. The cold shoulder may not last forever, as hey may have to promote a film together. Penn directed the actress in an upcoming film, The Last Face.
As for Madonna and Sean Penn, the last we heard from the couple, she was defending Penn against claims from Lee Daniels, that she had suffered an abusive relationship during their marriage.
“While we certainly had more than one heated argument during our marriage, Sean has never struck me, ‘tied me up,’ or physically assaulted me, and any report to the contrary is completely outrageous, malicious, reckless and false.”
Prior to speaking out on Penn’s behalf to the supreme court, the singer has made some Instagram posts dedicated to their time together. Perhaps, there is more to it than reminiscing about old times after all?
