Return of the ‘Poison Penns’: Is Madonna Wooing Sean Penn Again?

By Nilankur Dutta | 1 year ago

Is the ‘Material Girl’ trying to win back the ‘Mercurial Boy?’ Sources close to Madonna are suggesting the 59-year-old pop-icon would do anything to have Sean Penn back. We analyze the reasons as to why the iconic singer would want to go back to a relationship dubbed as ‘the Poison Penns.’

The rumors were sparked after Madonna shared a nostalgic photograph with the ex-hubby on Instagram earlier this month.


Madonna and Penn had a tempestuous romance in the late 80’s, a secretive celebrity marriage, and plenty of public altercations fuelled by Penn’s alcoholism. Their ‘affair’ culminated in 1989 when a drunk Penn broke into her home and reportedly physically abused her for nine hours. Why would somebody want to go back to this?

“Madonna adores Sean and would give anything to have another shot at love with him,” a source close to Madonna has revealed to Radar Online. “No other guy has come even close in terms of standing up to her, satisfying her physically and being intellectually stimulating.”

And the ‘Queen of Pop’ has a voracious appetite, the latest controversy being sparked after she forcibly kissed Drake onstage during a performance in Coachella.

The publication has also suggested that Madonna and Penn have been hooking up as recently as a year ago.

Penn, who recently and very abruptly broke-up with Charlize Theron, has remained silent about the whole ordeal, but we can judge from his interview with Esquire Magazine (via US Weekly) in Jan. 2015 that he is ambivalent about the whole reunion thing with Madonna. “Initially, in a divorce, you kick and bite about the other person,” he told the magazine. “But finally you’re looking at your failures to that person, to a marriage, to a friendship, to yourself during that time as well. Because no matter what the other person was or wasn’t, for better and for worse, it really has so little to do with the growth you need to find better circumstances. Almost exclusively it has to do with your own stuff.”
