After a little over a year of marriage, they divorced. Sean Penn and Leila George said to each other “yes” in July 2020 during an intimate wedding, when the pandemic was more present than ever. But in October 2021, the actress filed for divorce. After several months of waiting, a judge signed the finalization of their divorce in April 2022. Looking back, the Oscar-winning actor realized that he was responsible for the end of their love story.

In an interview with Hollywood Authentic dated early April, Sean Penn explained: “There’s a woman I’m so in love with, Leila George, who I only see day to day now, because I screwed up the wedding.” Facing the journalist, the three-time divorced actor looked into his complicated love life. “We were technically married for a year, but for five years, I was a very negligent guy” he admits without difficulty. Depressed and alcoholic, the situation became unbearable for Leila George. Divorce was inevitable. Sean Penn is single again!

Sean Penn: a complicated love story with Leila George

Although officially they had been together since 2016, a friend of the actress told People in August 2020 that the couple had experienced some hard knocks before. “Leila has been in Sean’s life for a while. They met, then they broke up, and Sean won her back” reports this source. Before adding: “He realized he had made a mistake and when he felt he was in danger of losing her, he worked hard to get her back.” Unfortunately, their story ended. Previously, Sean Penn was married to Robin Wright, with whom he had a daughter, Dylan, and a son, Hopper. And he was also married to Madonna from 1985 to 1989.
