As Radar reported back in October, decades after their 1989 divorce, Madonna and Sean Penn have rekindled their relationship. Now, the pair is ready to bring their romance out of the shadows. On Jan. 9, they were photographed holding hands at Penn's Annual Help Haiti Home Gala --- but Madonna's son Rocco Ritchie is reportedly less than thrilled about their reunion.

The 15-year-old is currently fighting for the right to live with his father, Guy Ritchie, in London, and an insider says that her mom's relationship with Penn is a major reason for their mother-son friction.

Despite widespread talk that Penn had been abusive during his relationship with Madonna, the smitten "Like A Virgin" singer spoke out in Dec. 2015 to deny that her ex-husband had been violent with her.

But Rocco may not be the only one who has a bone to pick with Penn. While the notorious drug lord El Chapo was on the lam after a successful prison break, Penn conducted an interview with the Mexican kingpin for Rolling Stone magazine.
