Sean Penn and Madonna are said to be enjoying their reconnection.
The famous pair were married in 1985 for four years, but the romance was mired by violent outbursts to the press by Sean. However the two have recently been spotted out enjoying dinner in California and are said to have stayed in the same hotel during Madonna's Rebel Heart tour.
"They've really enjoyed reconnecting," an insider told Britain's Grazia magazine. "Despite the years that have elapsed since their marriage ended, their connection remains undimmed. Madonna has always carried a torch for Sean. He was her first big love; there's always been a sense of unfinished business. Now that they're both single, they're leaning on each other in a way that they haven't done since they were together. They're both excited to see where it goes."
Since splitting more than 25 years ago, both Madonna and Sean have enjoyed new marriages and romances. Sean was married to actress Robin Wright, while Madonna settled down with director Guy Ritchie. Since their respective marriages ended, Madonna has dated a string of toy boys while Sean got serious with Charlize Theron, with the pair reported to have been engaged before splitting in June.
But it seems Sean and Madonna may be putting their failed romances behind them and trying again. In October rumours surfaced that the double Oscar-winner would be following Madonna to the European leg of her tour. However conflicting reports also suggest he's been reconnecting with Robin, following her split from fiancé Ben Foster in August.
“Sean and Robin are talking every day right now,” an insider previously told Radar. “They’re both going through heartbreaks and they’re leaning on each other for support. It’s very clear he’s making a bid to win her back.”
