The Queen has spoken.
Back in a September interview, 'Empire' creator Lee Daniels suggested that Oscar winner Sean Penn abused the women he was with over the years, including the Queen of Pop, Madonna.
Penn then filed a $10 million dollar defamation lawsuit against Daniels in response.
Now, Madonna (due to the fact she's on tour) submitted a sworn statement to the Manhattan Supreme Court to show support for her ex-husband.
In the interview, Daniels said while discussing his leading man Terrence Howard:
“ain’t done nothing different than Marlon Brando or Sean Penn, and all of a sudden he’s some f - - kin’ demon.”
Parts of Madonna's sworn statement said:
“While we certainly had more than one heated argument . . . Sean has never struck me, ‘tied me up,’ or physically assaulted me.” She continues in the statement to call Penn a "caring, compassionate individual". She called the allegations that Penn hit her in 198 (they were married from '85 to '89) and tied her to a chair "completely outrageous, malicious, reckless and false.”
Safe to assume Madonna won't be making any appearances on 'Empire'.
