Just because he’s shooting a film in New York and she’s dazzling fans at the Cannes Film Festival doesn’t mean Sean Penn doesn’t want to be back together with his wife of 13 years, Robin Wright.
He’s withdrawn his petition for a legal separation, which he’d filed April 24 in Marin County (CA) Superior Court.
“It was an arrogant mistake,” Penn told the New York Daily News of the separation.
Mr. and Mrs. Penn have been keeping family courts busy even before they married.
In 1996, already the parents of two children, the pair split and Robin obtained legal counsel to formalize custody and support issues.
But just weeks after a public scream-fest outside Robin’s attorney’s office, the pair married.
Then in December, 2007, they filed competing divorce petitions.
Sean made a grand play flaunting his newly single status by dating gorgeous model Petra Nemcova, even taking her to the Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar viewing party.
Bachelorhood apparently didn’t agree with Penn though and in April, 2008 he and Robin both told the divorce court to take a hike, and they got back together.
That was until April 24 when Sean started racking up the legal fees with his most recent petition.
Whether Robin is willing to go along with this most recent reconciliation isn’t yet known.
Reps for the pair are so far not commenting on the Penn’s most recent stop on the marital merry-go-round.
