Madonna and Sean Penn are NOT “heating up,” despite a new tabloid report. Gossip Cop can bust the claim. As we exclusively reported just a few days ago, the former spouses are NOT dating again.

But in the new issue of In Touch, it’s asserted Madonna and Penn are “giving their relationship another go — and they’ve stopped hiding it.” As proof that the stars are “no longer keeping their romance under wraps,” the magazine says they “fawned over each other” at Penn’s Help Haiti Home gala last Saturday. The outlet, however, offers no other information than just regurgitating the details of their interactions at the star-studded event.

Memo to In Touch: It’s entirely possible to hold an ex in high regard and have open appreciation for one another. It does not mean they are “heating up” again or flaunting a “romance.” It means they are mature, civil, and still consider each other a loved one.

That may be a dynamic ripe for sensationalism, but accuracy is more important. And it is absolutely NOT accurate to allege Madonna and Penn are in a “relationship” again. As a Madonna source exclusively told Gossip Cop, all such claims are 100 percent “false.” Once again, In Touch has failed miserably at staying, well, in touch with the celebrities it purports to cover so well.
