Sad news today for Sean Penn and wife Robin Wright Penn (well, depending on your perspective, I suppose) … Extra! TV is reporting that Sean has filed for divorce after the couple unsuccessfully tried to save their marriage from the last time they almost divorced. The couple almost called it quits back in December of 2007 but decided to give their marriage another go … unfortch for the pair, it just didn’t work out. The Penns are dunzo, y’all:
Back in 2007, Sean Penn filed for divorce from wife Robin Wright Penn, then they decided to give it another go, but it seems that it hasn’t worked out, as Sean just filed for legal separation, “Extra” has exclusively learned. The two have been married since 1996 and have two teenage children. It’s been a big year for Penn, 48, who won nearly every major award for his work in “Milk,” including a Best Actor Oscar. Last time they filed, the couple sought joint custody of the kids, which will likely be the case again this time. Penn was previously married to Madonna.
I was pretty certain that the couple were dunzo for good back in 2007 but when they decided to try and work things out and then stayed together for all of 2008, I had totally forgotten that they were near break-up and just figured that they had sorted out all of their probs. I guess it just goes to show that some relationships cannot be salvaged. Sean and Robin always looked like a good match to me … I guess, in the end, it just wasn’t meant to be. Altho, if the couple managed to patch things up last time I suppose it’s possible that they can do it again. Whatever the case, I wish them both well.
