■ Madonna has had to submit a court decleration that ex-husband Sean Penn did not physically assault her during their marriage. It comes after Empire creator Lee Daniels made inflammatory claims regarding Penn allegedly beating the “***** I’m Madonna” star, claims that Madonna’s brother Christopher Ciccone echoed in his 2008 tell-all book. Madonna labeled the claims “outrageous, malicious, reckless, and false.”
