Sean and Charlize called it quits last month, after dating for 18 months. The pair have been friends for 18 years, and it was thought they had even become engaged which is sad as it was rumoured the wedding would even be held in South Africa.
In the wake of the split Sean has been seen getting cosy with actress Minka Kelly, with sources revealing they first met at the second annual Sean Penn & Friends Help Haiti Home Gala in January 2013.
“They hit it off and had instant chemistry,” as per America’s OK! magazine.
“Sean kept in touch with Minka and made a point to check in often. It was a bone of contention with Charlize.”
Last month Sean was spotted helping Minka celebrate her 35th birthday at Californian restaurant The French Laundry, which is normally a hard spot to make reservations at.
“Sean pulled some strings and paid for everything. He’s pulling out all the stops to impress her,” the source said.
It’s been claimed that Sean and Charlize split because of their different views on marriage.
