Penn filing for divorce
LOS ANGELES: Robin Wright Penn has filed for divorce from husband Sean Penn, citing ‘irreconcilable differences’. The Forrest Gump actress who has two children, Dylan, 18, and 16-year-old Hopper, with the Oscar-winning actor filed the papers on August 12 in Marin County, California.
Robin is not seeking spousal support and the couple have agreed to share custody of Hopper. The news comes after the actress revealed she is at a ‘crossroads’ in her relationship with Sean and they are living apart. Robin who married Sean in 1996 said, “I hit that crossroad a while ago. The ‘I know what I don’t want’ was flashing in neon lights. I have no regrets. I, we, have two amazing children we raised together.” In April, Sean filed for separation from Robin but a month later asked California’s Marin
County Superior Court to dismiss the case claiming it was an ‘arrogant mistake’. It was not the first time the couple had announced they were divorcing only to change their minds.
