I’ll never understand what attracts so many beautiful, successful celebrity women to Sean Penn – from Robin Wright to Natalie Portman to Scarlett Johansson, they’ve all been seduced by Sean Penn. Well, add Jewel to the ranks of Sean Penn’s victims.
Speaking in her new book Never Broken: Songs Are Only Half the Story, Jewel, 41, talks of how she fell in love with Penn when he was on one of his breaks from eventual second wife Robin Wright. ‘I enjoyed Sean,’ the songstress said. ‘And would eventually fall in love.’
Jewel claims that she liked Penn when he wasn’t drinking because he gave her a ‘melancholy stare.’ Penn is also said to have boasted to the blonde country star: “It would be impossible not to fall in love with me.”
In other Penn-related news, the two time Oscar winner has filed a lawsuit against Lee Daniels for $10 million for defamation. The Empire co-creator compared Terrence Howard’s domestic abuse case to previous cases with Marlon Brando and Sean Penn. Penn, long rumoured to be a domestic abused, has never been charged.
