Madonna has stood up for her former husband Sean Penn in his defamation lawsuit against Lee Daniels and has made a court declaration that he never physically abused her during their famously tumultuous marriage.
According to the court documents, the 57-year-old songstress has said that while they certainly had more than one heated argument during their marriage, the 55-year-old actor has never struck her, tied her up or physically assaulted her, reports E! Online.
The ‘Like a Player’ hit-maker further said that any report to the contrary is completely outrageous, malicious, reckless and false.
She also stated that reports of an alleged 1987 incident, in which he struck her with a bat, are completely outrageous, malicious, reckless and false and she called allegations that a December 1989 incident that purportedly resulted in Penn’s arrest were also false.
Penn sued Daniels for 10 million dollars in September after the filmmaker and the ‘Empire’ co-creator characterised Penn as an abuser in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. (ANI)
