After filing divorce Sean Penn and wife Leila George seen together on New Year celebration
Two months after filing for divorce, Sean Penn and his estranged wife (Leila George) rung in the New Year together. According to The Sydney Morning Herald, Penn, 61, and Leila George, 29, were photographed enjoying New Year’s Eve together in Sydney, Australia, alongside actor Kick Gurry and another visitor.
They were last seen together in Miami Beach in early December, where they attended a party with Penn’s buddy Leonardo DiCaPrio. Penn and George also went to Soho Beach House for the actor’s CORE non-profit event.
In 2016, the two became romantically involved, and in July 2020, they married. After barely over a year of marriage to Penn, George, an Australian actress, filed for divorce in mid-October.
Penn spoke on Late Night with Seth Meyers in August 2020, when he revealed, “A COVID wedding was what we did. That is to say, there was a county commissioner on Zoom, and my two children and her brother were at the house. That’s how we accomplished it.”
Even though Penn and George had been together since 2016, a friend of the actress told PEOPLE in August after their wedding that the couple had rejoined earlier in 2020 after a term of on-and-off.
“They dated for some time, then things ended, then Sean mended the relation again,” said the source. ” When he understood he’d messed up seriously, he tried tirelessly to restore.
The time they spent self-isolating together during the epidemic, according to the source, helped cement their bond. During the public health crisis, Penn and George collaborated on humanitarian activities, including assisting in the establishment of testing centers in Los Angeles.
Penn was formerly married to Robin Wright, whom he married in 1996 and divorced in 2010. They have two children together, a 30-year-old daughter named Dylan and a 28-year-old son named Hopper.
