The two were reportedly seen together in Santa Monica at a hotel bar but the former spouses haven’t commented on these speculations yet.
This could mean that the musician, 57, and the actor, 55, who separated from Charlize Theron after over a year of dating, could be just good friends hanging out.
In fact, Dylan Penn, Sean’s daughter with ex-wife Robin Wright, who was introduced by the Oscar-winning actor to Madonna during her Madison Square Garden Rebel Heart concert in September, opened up about her father’s relationship with the singer to Entertainment Tonight this month, saying, “I think he just really admires her work.”
“They’re just really good friends and [I think] it’s sweet that they can have this relationship,” she added.
A source told Page Six that Penn “is the love of her life.” Citing another source, the magazine also added that “it’s much ado about nothing.”
“They’re friends. Who knows how close they really are after all these years?” the insider said.
Madonna and Sean Penn married in 1985, on the singer’s birthday, and they divorced four years later, in 1989.
