Madonna to Sean Penn -- 'I Love You'

Breaking News

Madonna made it clear Saturday night ... she loved Sean Penn in the past and she feels the same way now.

Sean was hosting a fundraiser for Haiti in Bev Hills, and Madonna was not only there with children David and Mercy, but she was openly affectionate with her ex-husband, walking arm-in-arm.

Madonna told the crowd, "I want to say Sean that I love you from the moment I laid eyes on you and I still love you just the same."

The timing of the event is interesting ... the event went down just as Rolling Stone released Sean's interview with El Chapo.
