NEW YORK, Jan. 9 (UPI) -- A publicist for Madonna says the U.S. pop star is not rekindling her romance with her former husband, actor Sean Penn, despite rumors to the contrary.
Publicist Liz Rosenberg said while rumors of a possible romantic reunion were fueled by Madonna and Penn meeting at a New York eatery Thursday, they are not getting back together, People.com reported Friday.
"Madonna was at the St. Regis having dinner with friends," Rosenberg said of the former couple's meeting at the Adour at the St. Regis Hotel. "Sean stopped by the table to say hello. He sat for 10 minutes and then left. Madonna continued with her dinner. That's all it was."
Madonna, 51, divorced director Guy Ritchie in 2008, while Penn's wife, actress Robin Wright Penn, filed for divorce from the "Milk" actor last August.
Madonna and Penn, 49, were married for four years before divorcing in 1989.
