no title

Looks like Lee Daniels isn't giving up!

On Tuesday, the Empire creator filed a motion to dismiss Sean Penn's defamation suit against him. The legal move is the latest in a case that has been ongoing since September of 2015.

For those who don't know, Sean decided to sue Daniels after he insinuated that the actor maliciously abused Madonna back in 1987. The heinous allegation has been floating around Hollywood for years.

Obviously, S.P. did not take kindly to the claim and filed a defamation suit against the mogul for $10 million dollars. Penn was so adamant about his innocence that he enlisted Madge to testify in court on his behalf back in December.

Considering the singer vehemently denied any wrong doing on her ex-husband's part, Sean's lawyer expected the case to go forward despite L.D.'s claims that the first amendment protects his right to free speech.

Now Lee has filed a motion to dismiss Mr. Penn's lawsuit all together.

The father of two's lawyer said of the latest deflection:

We were impressed with Real Housewives of Atlanta when we heard that the docu-series had cast its first ever transgender housewife… but the latest news of the ATL is anything but inspiring.

After just a month of filming, trans actress Amiyah Scott has already quit!

Madonna Testifies In Lee Daniels Defamation Case That Sean Penn NEVER Hit Her!

Filed under: MadonnaLegal MattersSean PennViolence

Her statement was issued under oath!

Madonna is shutting down those reports once and for all!

ICYMI: Back in September, Empire creator Lee Daniels was defending Terrence Howard's domestic violence allegations by comparing him to Sean Penn.

Back in the 80s, there were reports that the Milk actor had beaten his then-wife, Madonna, with a baseball bat and that he'd been arrested for assaulting her.

So basically, the FOX showrunner claimed Terrence's situation is no different than what the 55-year-old had gone through.

The Mystic River alum did NOT like that, and slapped the 55-year-old with a $10 million defamation suit.

Sean Penn Files $10 Million Defamation Lawsuit Against Empire Creator Lee Daniels! He Does NOT Want To Be Compared To Terrence Howard!

Looks like Sean wasn't too happy about that.

Well that's certainly gonna put a damper on premiere week for Empire creator Lee Daniels!

Ahead of Wednesday's start for Season 2, the FOX showrunner is getting slapped with a $10 million defamation lawsuit, courtesy of Sean Penn!

The Mystic River actor filed the complaint on Tuesday after Lee compared him and Terrence Howard in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that ran last week.

Lee defended his star, who has been making headlines for his ongoing legal battle with his ex-wife Michelle Ghent, who alleges that he threatened and beat her. He said:

"[Terrence] ain't done nothing different than Marlon Brando or Sean Penn, and all of a sudden he's some f*ckin' demon. That's a sign of the time, of race, of where we are right now in America."

Now, Sean definitely did NOT appreciate that!

In his lawsuit, it says that it was wrong for Lee to make it seem as though the two actors were equals, since the Milk star has never been locked up for beating a significant other:
