Sean Penn and Madonna have fuelled speculation that they’re definitely back together, despite splitting more than 25 years ago.

The ex-lovers, who were married fro 1985 to 1989, attended the Help Haiti Home Gala arm in arm.

Describing her first visit to Haiti with Sean two years ago, Madonna said, “Everywhere he went, people just, the crowds just parted, and it wasn’t because he’s a movie star and it’s not because he was carrying six guns. It’s because he put his heart and soul into this and with the help of so many people around the world and in this room.”

She added, “So I want to say that, Sean, I love you. From the moment that I laid eyes on you. And I still love you, just the same. I just wish you would stop smoking so many cigarettes.”

Her touching tribute comes after reports that the pair has been seen on several dates as far back as November.
