Madonna and Sean Penn are not “over already,” despite a misleading tabloid report. Gossip Cop can bust the story. We’re not sure how something that never started in the first place can be “over.”

The new issue of Life & Style announces it has “bad news” for those “rooting” for Madonna and Penn to “go the distance this time.” According to the magazine, “They’ve secretly split after four months of dating.” A so-called “source” is quoted as saying, “They’ll always love each other dearly, but both are controlling and bullheaded.”

“Madonna knew they would never work as a real couple again,” continues the supposed snitch, who further says the singer “will always think of Sean as the love of her life, but she was ready for something new.” The tipster even alleges Madonna is already “finding solace over the split in the arms of [a] new man.”

Here’s how we got to this point: Over the last year, various gossip rags speculated that the former spouses had gotten back together in the wake of Penn’s breakup with Charlize Theron. Earlier this month, Life & Style sister publication In Touch even declared he and Madonna were “heating up.”

Gossip Cop debunked that story, as we did the previous ones. Now we can correct this one, too. Madonna and Penn have not “secretly split” because they weren’t dating. The tabloids are now just trying to get out of the false premise they were peddling. Consider it all exposed.
