Florence Welch is the latest younger woman to have caught the eye of actor Sean Penn,” begins a piece from the Daily Mail.

According to the paper, the Florence + the Machine singer recently met Penn at a Gucci charity event in L.A., and “they hit it off instantly.”

One so-called “insider” tells the tab, “Sean was flirting with her all evening and they got along like a house on fire.”

(Nice made up quote.)

Penn was allegedly so smitten that he “asked to meet up with her again,” claims the supposed source.

So, when should we expect these two to step out as a new couple?

Don’t hold your breath.

Gossip Cop checked with a source close to Penn, who tells us the story is totally “exaggerated.”

“They are making something out of nothing,” our insider tells us.

Well, it wouldn’t be the first time.
