Sean Penn

She Can Pay Her Own Way

4/29/2009 4:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sean Penn has filed for legal separation from his wife, Robin Wright Penn -- again, and he's not about to start fronting her legal bills.

0429_sean_robin_launch_bn-1According to papers filed last week in Marin County Superior Court, Penn cites "irreconcilable differences." The couple was married 13 years and has two minor children.

Penn wants each party to pay for their own lawyers. And, he checked the box saying he wants the judge to terminate the court's power to award spousal support.

The couple announced they were divorcing in December 2007 -- but recanted four months later after changing their minds.

They list two minor children -- but Dylan Francis Penn just turned 18, so she's not a kid anymore. Just trying to be helpful....

What's the matter Sean Penn? Don't Communists like paying alimony for support? Guess in places like Venezuela and Cuba husbands don't have to support ex-wives.

Sean Penn, one of the biggest lowlifes in the left coast. The worst in my view. I hope she gets all of the property and money holdings from this jerk.

Perhaps the Princess Bride got sick of her Pinko Hubby trashing her country while mingling with dictators. It's his loss, regardless.

TMZ, the child is a minor until the age of 21... Not 18. Especially if he/she is enrolled in an institution of higher learning.

Interesting. I guess this explains why he didn't even mention her during his acceptance speech of the Oscars. I find it interesting that someone would fight so arduously for gay marriages but gives no regards to his own.

I am so happy that she can finally shake that douchebag. Believe me, no judge in the world will not give her everything she wants for putting up with his annoying BS year after year. Typical liberal hypocrite.

The thing that disappoints me most about this article is the glaringly poor grammatical error that
everyone seems to have overlooked

Treat "couple" as plural when you mean two individuals, the experts advise, and you'll avoid agreement problems. The couple were married in Dunn before they left on a honeymoon trip to Ahoskie. You would not write: The couple WAS married in Dunn before IT left on a honeymoon trip to Ahoskie.

Similarly, "The couple was married 13 years and has two minor children." is poor grammar. The sentence should read
'The couple were married 13 years and they have two children."

Robin......I hope you clean this f'ers plows good.....
and pay yourself back for raising his children, taking care of the house, being there for him 24/7, and letting YOUR career take a back burner to the dog that you're unfortunately married to.
You're a beautiful woman and a great talent Robin......wish the joker Adios amigo vaja con Dios and don't let the door hit you in the arse

He was more into Chavez than his wife. He's a liberal but he's cheap & likes dictators. Go figure that one out.

Their daughter might have turned 18 but if she is still in high school she is considered a minor and child support will and should be awarded on her behalf.

I say good riddance for Robin, Sean is a prick and violent SOB. She deserves better, he didn't even thank her when he won the Oscars this year...His rant/speech was more about "commies and homophobes", he could've at least gave Robin a shout out and told her thanks. Good for you Robin you are free from that whack job....
