Following the news that Sean Penn was spotted oogling his ex Madonna at a recent gig, friends of the music icon reportedly have their hopes set on the pair reuniting!
Madge and Sean enjoyed a high profile marriage from 1985 to1989, even starring in 1986's Shanghai Surprise together. Their marriage was marred by violence though with Penn even hitting his wife across the head with a baseball bat in 1987.
The pair have remained close friends despite the rocky relationship and eventual split and it was rumoured their romance could have been rekindled after Sean was spotted at a recent LA gig. An eyewitness claimed that the actor "was practically panting,"
"Every time she thrusted or bent over, he was like 'Oh, man! I can't take this! She is too hot" the source told Radar Online.

Now, Madonna's friends are apparently pushing for a reunion:
"Madonna's friends wish she'd get back with Sean," a source told Us Weekly. "He will always be the love of her life. They've remained close friends, but they are fire and fire together romantically. She can only be with someone she can control."
Although single Sean is currently single, Madonna has been with her 26-year-old boyfriend Brahim Zaibat for the last two years. We bet he's not happy with "panting" Sean!
