Dating Agreement

couple date 1[Blind Gossip] This actress presented her actor boyfriend with one important rule before she would agree to date him.

Knowing of his dark history with women, she told him that he must never lay a hand on her or her child/ren in anger. If he did, she would not only permanently leave him… but she would have him arrested! He thought that was fair, and agreed. In writing.

BONUS CLUE on Twitter later!

      I didn’t even know they were dating so talk about revealing all types of blinds!!!

    • buttercup

      Yes! Her mother shot and killed her father in self-defense. This explains why he admitted to getting rid of his guns, and of course she would protect her son the way her mother protected her. Wow.

      • Mrs.DarylDixon

        Since a gun saved her mother, wouldn’t it make more sense for her to be pro-gun and armed while she’s dating a known abuser????

    • august

      Theses I think was pretty easy. But I think she’s crazy to have giving him chance at all.

    No clue, but he sounds like a real sweetheart and she’s an idiot for going out w/him.

      I would also add to that agreement that once a week he must become Jeff Spicoli.

      • misslibrarianlady

        Maybe if he became Spicoli more often he wouldn’t have such a violent reputation. Hmm… Time for Spicoli to move to Colorado.

      • Okayeah

        LOL because otherwise, there is truly no point to dating Sean Penn. Interesting that he agreed to it – do they really both think he can control it if he wants to? Which then begs the question why he’s never wanted to.

      • mugofmead111

        He should also keep his peen in check since it allegedly has the tendency to wander.

      • AnguaDelphine

        Of course he can control it. All domestic violence is controlled – if people who beat their spouses couldn’t control it, we’d see them beat them all the time. Like we see people sneeze, or have a seizure. Abusers generally wait until they get home, and then start. Which is pretty much the definition of control.
        Good on Charlize. I hope this is sufficient for them to have a good relationship. It’s a good sign, in any case, that he agreed to this, and in writing, too.

    Good for her. At least now we know she’s not blind or in denial about his history of violence against women and good for her for saying she would have him arrested. Why he wasn’t before is beyond my comprehension.

    • kspeedian

      Totally agree… But do you get how not having this would keep him out of trouble if she ever did want him arrested? Is anyone else confused about the purpose of this? Like if he hit her or the child, how would having this in writing help? Like, what, if she didn’t have it and showed up at the police station beaten to a pulp, they’d say “sorry, you didn’t have him sign the ‘you’re allowed to call the cops if I break the law by beating you’ contract! This only seems like it’d be good for, if he actually did beat you, to use as proof that you are an idiot who pretty much knew you’d be pressing charges on him at some point from the get go.

      I get it’s scary and not always easy to do the right thing or get yourself out of an abusive situation… But that’s not what concerns me here lol…

      Wtf? Am I missing something?

    • kspeedian

      Even if it was just to make him aware she wouldn’t put up with that behavior… What, really, is the point of this? So he won’t go after her after she leaves (cause we all know crazy beaters follow rules as long as it’s in writing).

      Clearly, my mind is blown, and the more I think about it, if this is true, it honestly makes me like her less.

      • bec215

        I think the “i’ll report you to the police” is to avoid being threatened by his publicist and agency if she does – I think it’s to protect her from pressure to keep the issue out of the press….very savvy, though very sad.

      • MaryRead

        I agree with your thoughts here. I think it’s less about a legal agreement and more about a CYA-in-Hollywood agreement.

        Most planned romantic and sexual entanglements among A-list stars probably involve some level of non-disclosure agreement for the sake of both parties. You know with all that money and power, most Hollywood folks don’t live normal lives, and they’re also at greater risk for losing their livelihood for the way they do live their lives. So, after we break up, I won’t tell them you have that kinky fetish if you don’t tell them I use extreme dieting to stay thin. I mean, really, how often do you see truly explosive, crazy finger-pointing and accusations coming in the wake of A-list breakups? Doesn’t happen until they’re writing memoirs after their heydey and their commercial viability is no longer at risk.

        Thus, my bet is this is not intended as a legal contract so much as a reputation contract. Normally they’d probably agree to keep any sensitive details from the relationship secret, as is the case with most A-list breakups. Here she’s just saying that if something happens, the Hollywood code of mutual secrecy is out the window–if she pursues arrest, he knows it will be public knowledge and no more secrets.

        Also, if he tried to pull the “that b**** violated the Hollywood code” business afterwards (e.g., using his power to try to keep her from getting hired), she would also have proof that he’s lying. (Because we know Hollywood is A-OK with letting wife-beating turds stay in power.)

    I have no idea since I can’t think of any famous men known to have hit their significant others besides Chris Brown who obviously it is not, but why on earth woul you even agree to date someone who you know this about? Seriously, what would be the piont of drawing up paperwork, etc? Just walk away. I wouldn’t even assume a person like that could control themselves in the heat of anger, threats of leaving/arrest or not.

    Sean Penn & Charlize Theron…. wishingful thinking with that. But seriously what does she see in him… or should I ask what is she getting out of this?

  • BecciBee

    I’m guessing.. Sean Penn & Charlize Theron. There were recent reports she made him get rid of all his guns, plus he pleaded to misdemeanor in some sort of domestic dispute in his marriage to Madonna.. or atleast he did if my Google sleuthing served me well. Plus Charlize adopted a son, Jackson, in 2002. First time poster :)

    Uh…wow. Just wow. “Hey, so you like to hit women? Okay, I’ll date you but IF YOU HIT ME OR MY CHILDREN…”

    STOP RIGHT THERE. I don’t know who this is, but this seems to be teetering on parental negligence. HOW DARE THIS WOMAN PLACE HER CHILDREN IN THIS POSITION? If you even HAVE to put this in writing, why date the guy? For roles? For money? I hope for their sake that the childrens’ father is ready and willing to whip the **** out of this guy.

    Josh Brolin? (actor)

    A MORON (actress)…sorry to sound judgmental, but my ex pulled a knife on me, and I accept my being an idiot in marrying and staying with him like I did, but there were no children involved. I hope she wises up BEFORE he harms her kids.

    • Stackhouse

      “STOP RIGHT THERE. I don’t know who this is, but this seems to be teetering on parental negligence. HOW DARE THIS WOMAN PLACE HER CHILDREN IN THIS POSITION? If you even HAVE to put this in writing, why date the guy?” – Hear, hear!

      It’s Charlize Theron and Sean Penn. You should try to google his history of violence and domestic abuse, which is quite extensive and serious – and that’s putting it mildly (e.g. he tied Madonna up for hours and abused her in *every* way possible). Charlize also has a history when it comes to abuse; but in her case it was her and her mother who were the victims, and now she has decided to knowingly repeat her family history. It angers me greatly that she would adopt an innocent child, and consciously put him in danger like this – the opposite of what a loving, selfless and rational mother would do. Disgusting.

      • PandoraWolf

        Now that I read the responses, I ONLY feel better in that I don’t think she’d leave and have him arrested.

        I think she’d get a gun and blow his f*cking head off.

        I don’t feel BETTER, though.

    does dark history refer to him dating black model jessica white?

    • mugofmead111

      Ha. FWIW, he was rumored to have stepped out with rapper Eve as well for a bit. I think that reference was accidental here.

      Sean Penn apparently has an anger management problem. Plus, he allegedly wasn’t a very good or faithful husband to his last wife Robin Wright.

    Who is dating Josh Brolin? Is “dark history” a nod to the Dark Knight Batman and rumors he lost the role due to his violent ways?

    PS – Haven’t seen the bonus clue yet, so I may have to modify this later.

    • raslebol

      Brolin was only an option among others if Affleck ,the first and favorite choice of Warner Bros was not interested

  • Booboo1068

    Charlize Theron
    Sean Penn

    Whoever this actress is kudos to her for being one of the few smart ones (while still dumb enough to date such a man) with at least enough self respect to protect herself AND her child. Please just don’t have a child WITH him. Unlike Halle who watched on while her then BF used her ex as a punching bag instead of preventing it in the first place (and then the obvious PR move to need public police protection). I wouldn’t even be with someone who was capable of such violence never mind have a child with him. And for those bloggers who tried to say it was just sad…whose face and ribs were full of bruises and contusions and who just had a sore hand? She makes way more money and has far more power so she can control almost every aspect of his life by using access to their daughter as leverage. Hopefully Charlize is smarter then this.

    • Stackhouse

      No, a person with genuine self-respect who genuinely wanted to protect herself AND her child, would absolutely NOT consciously put themselves and their children in that situation in the first place.

      If she proceeds to date a man who has a well-known extensive history of domestic abuse, how is she “smarter” than the women who came before her? In fact, wouldn’t you actually say that she is “dumber,” as she – unlike most of them – knows exactly what she’s getting into? Who does that? What kind of person would knowingly go into a relationship with a man who is extremely abusive, especially when they have a small child?

      Someone with serious issues, that’s who; and someone who definitely should not be allowed to adopt a vulnerable child (who, ironically, probably came from a tragic background) until they get their issues sorted.

    I have no idea who they are yet,but if they live in California,the chances of him getting arrested is zero,you know why…he wouldn’t even go to jail.But in other states,it’s possible.
    Anyway,i’m glad that she,even knowing his dark history with women,protected herself and her kid(s) with a deal.She’s smart.

    • PrettyInPink84

      She’s smart? Are you kidding me? She is worried about him being a lose cannon to the point of “I’ll date you, but we need this in writing” Ummm NO. As a woman and a mother, if this guy can be that bad, the smart decision would be to NOT date him. Period. They don’t have a romantic history, they JUST started dating. She could just simply NOT if she is that fearful that he could harm her children.

    He has a history of a temper and violence and she has a son (adorable son!). I can’t decide if she’s smart for this or plain stupid for knowing his past and still putting herself and her child in that position.
