The mysterious girl who was spotted spending time with Sean Penn in London earlier this month has been identified. She is African-American model and occasional actress Jessica White. The alleged lovers were snapped holding hands when attending fellow model Noemie Lenoir's birthday at new hot spot Abe & Arthur's on Saturday night, September 12.
While neither Sean nor Jessica has officially confirmed that they are dating, they had no hesitation to act like a couple during the party. They were seen laughing and joking and the actor was even said feeding the model food from his own plate.
Sean Penn is currently undergoing divorce proceedings from his actress wife Robin Wright Penn, who is the mother of his two children; daughter Dylan Frances and son Hopper Jack. He initially filed for divorce in December 2007, but his petition was later dismissed. Three days later, Robin filed her own paperwork. However, in April 2008, the couple's divorce petition was dismissed at their request.
In April this year, Sean sought another legal separation from Robin, whom he married in April 1996. The following month, he had his representative confirming that he called off his latest legal separation from Robin. Last month, Sean decided to kickstart another divorce process.
As for Jessica White, she is most famous for her stint as Sports Illustrated model. In addition to her modeling career, she has appeared in several music videos of famous singers and has made cameo appearances in several big screen flicks. Previously, she was romantically linked to footballer Terrell Owens.
