Sean Penn’s wife has filed for divorce

It wasn’t until July 2020 that Sean Penn and Leila George tied the knot. But the actor’s third attempt at marriage is said to have failed: his wife has already submitted the documents.

After four years of relationship, Hollywood star Sean Penn and his Australian colleague Leila George dared to walk in front of the altar last summer. Although their wedding could only take place on a small scale due to the corona pandemic, the two did not want to wait any longer.

In the “Late Night” talk show by Seth Meyers, Penn had revealed shortly afterwards that only his children and George’s brother had been there in his own house. A registrar gave him and his 31-year-old girlfriend the virtual blessing via zoom. But their marriage shouldn’t last forever. Just 15 months later, Leila George has now filed for divorce.

Third failed marriage for Sean Penn

According to the latest reports, the “People” magazine and the “TMZ” portal have the documents that the Australian presented to a court in Los Angeles on Friday. What led to the love-out so shortly after the wedding is not known.

It is Sean Penn’s third failed marriage. The Hollywood star already has two prominent ex-wives: from 1985 to 1989 he was married to pop star Madonna. Actress Robin Wright was his wife between 1996 and 2010. He has two grown children with the “House of Cards” actress: 30-year-old Dylan Frances and Hopper Jack, who is two years his junior. For Leila George, daughter of “Criminal Intent” star Vincent D’Onofrio, it is the first marriage. She was dating Sean Penn since 2016.
