Sean Penn’s love life just made a “U-Turn” back into bachelorhood.
The Oscar-winning star’s wife, actress Leila George, has filed for divorce after just over one year of marriage, the 29-year-old Aussie filing the dissolution in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday, People reports.
The soon-to-be exes dated for four years before quietly tying the knot in July 2020. Days later, Penn, 61, confirmed their “COVID wedding” on “Late Night with Seth Meyers.”
“There are reports that you recently got married, is this true?” Meyers asked Penn at the time, to which the “Milk” actor raised his hand, showing off his wedding band.
“We did a COVID wedding,” Penn said of the nuptials. “By that I mean it was a county commissioner on Zoom, we were at the house, my two children and her brother, and we did it that way.”
