Madonna Defends Ex Sean Penn in Lee Daniels Lawsuit

Madonna is standing up for her ex-husband Sean Penn and is slamming claims that he physically assaulted her during their marriage.

The 55-year-old Oscar-winning actor filed a defamation lawsuit against Empire creator Lee Daniels after he falsely accused him of hitting women.

“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,” Madonna said in a declaration that she filed in court on Thursday (December 17).

Lee previously compared Sean to Empire star Terrence Howard, who was accused of assault as well. He said that the actor “ain’t done nothing different than Marlon Brando or Sean Penn, and all of the sudden he’s some f—in’ demon. That’s a sign of the time, of race, of where we are right now in America,” according to Variety.
