Scarlett Johansson & Sean Penn Break-Up

Written by Michael Lambarde on Jun. 03, 2011

Scarlett Johansson, 26, and Sean Penn, 50, have split up, according to a report by People. Speculation first began that the couple broke up after Johansson and Penn were not together in Cannes where Penn was promoting Tree of Life, his new film. People is confirming the break-up, but didn’t go on to indicate why the two called it quits.

The couple first began dating in February of this year shortly after Johansson split from her husband Ryan Reynolds — whom she was linked to since 2007. Since the two started dating less than four months ago, false stories indicating that Johansson was pregnant and the two taking the extra step and moving in with each other were circulated, despite them being false.
