Jewel Opens Up About Dating Sean Penn Many Years Ago

Sean Penn wears a leather jacket while attending the 2015 Clinton Global Initiative’s Annual Meeting on Tuesday (September 29) in New York City.

The 55-year-old actor was joined at the event by Naomi Campbell, Freida Pinto, and of course Bill and Chelsea Clinton. Earlier in the week, Sean attended some more charitable events in the Big Apple.

Sean‘s ex-girlfriend Jewel is opening up about their relationship.

“He’s very bright, and it’s just a lot of verbal sparring, which to me is flirty. I’m not a normal flirty person,” Jewel said on Access Hollywood (via Us Weekly). “To me, verbal sparring is very, very enticing and he’s very bright.”

“He wasn’t flirty right away, he was business. We were talking about music and writing a song,” Jewel added about how they met when he asked her to write a song for his 1995 movie The Crossing Guard. “Sean was very sweet. And it was a time in my career when nobody believed in me. I was selling two records every five months and it was just a really rough time. But he really believed in me, and having that really meant a lot. And he’d follow me on tour, and carry my guitar for me. Just incredibly supportive and incredibly sweet.”

Sean Penn Suing Empire's Lee Daniels For Defamation After Terrence Howard Comparisons

Sean Penn has filed a defamation lawsuit against Empire creator Lee Daniels after he accused him of domestic violence in comparison to Terrence Howard.

“That poor boy [Terrence] ain’t done nothing different than Marlon Brando or Sean Penn, and all of a sudden he’s some f—in’ demon. That’s a sign of the time, of race, of where we are right now in America,” Lee told THR, brushing off Terrence‘s legal troubles concerning domestic violence.

“As a result of Penn‘s status as a public figure, he has for years been the subject of scandalous, scurrilous, and baseless attacks,” the first paragraph of Sean‘s complain reads (via THR). “But Penn, like any citizen, has a right to defend himself and will no longer tolerate the reckless and malicious behavior of others, who seek to aggrandize themselves or their projects at his expense. Accordingly, and because of Daniels‘ defamatory statements, Penn brings this action for monetary relief, and to deter Daniels and others from their defamatory actions.”

“Third, and most problematic,” continues the lawsuit, “Daniels falsely equates Penn with Howard, even though, while he has certainly had several brushes with the law, Penn (unlike Howard) has never been arrested, much less convicted, for domestic violence, as his ex-wives (including Madonna) would confirm and attest.”

Sean is suing for $10 million.
