Sean Penn is legally single.
The 61-year-old actor was married to actress Leila George until last October when the 29-year-old beauty filed for divorce after just over a year of marriage and now it has reportedly been finalized.
According to court documents obtained by TMZ a judge signed off on finalizing the divorce Friday, just over six months after the ‘Mortal Engines’ actress had called time on her marriage to the Hollywood star.
Back in March, it was claimed that the pair had “iron-clad” prenuptial agreement that laid out the specific details of their finances in the event of a split, but the details were not set out in the court paperwork.
The former couple, who started dating in 2016 before tying the knot in July 2020, had previously agreed to negotiate the details of their split out of the public court system and to use a private judge.
The ‘Mystic River’ star – who has adult children Dylan and Hopper with ex-wife Robin Wright, and was also previously married to Madonna – previously revealed he and Leila married over Zoom, with the officiant carrying out proceedings via video link.
He said: “We did a COVID wedding. By that, I mean it was a county commissioner on Zoom and we were at the house with my two children and her brother de ella, and we did it that way.
Before their marriage, it was claimed Penn had to “win back” George after their romance continued on and off for several years until the last time they went their separate ways, which prompted the ‘Flag Day’ star to “work hard” on fixing their bond.
A source said: “Leila has been in Sean’s life for a while. They got together and then they broke up, and Sean won her back from her.
“I realized he had made a mistake and when he felt he might lose her, he worked hard to get her back.”
The couple isolated together amid the coronavirus pandemic, and it was claimed that it helped strengthen their relationship and made them realize their future together.
The insider added: “They got back together during COVID and became really close and got engaged a few months ago, early during quarantine.”
