Not for long. On June 6, 1986, Sean Penn and Madonna got into a heated public argument at a Manhattan nightclub called The Pyramid. There, a fight erupted into violence as an obviously inebriated Penn shoved his wife up against a wall, then carried their shouting match out into the street.
Sean Penn met Madonna in 1985. Penn's ultimately led to their divorce in 1989, but both he and Madonna would eventually get married again: he to actress Robin Wright (from 1996–2010), and she to director Guy Richie (from 2000–2008).
