Sean Penn cleared the air about his past relationship with Madonna.

The Oscar winner, 63, told the New York Times that he never physically assaulted the “Vogue” singer, 65, when they were married from 1985 to 1989.

Penn recalled the time that his home was raised by the SWAT team after Madonna called the police because she was concerned about guns in the house.

“I said: ‘I’m not coming out. I’m going to finish my breakfast,’ ” Penn said in the interview published Saturday.

“The next thing I knew, windows were being broken all around the house and they came in. They had me in handcuffs,” he added.

The “Mystic River” star said that at the time, there were rumors he “trussed [Madonna] up like a turkey.” He also claimed that he once spent a night with a woman who asked if he hit Madonna with a baseball bat.

“I didn’t know what the hell she was talking about,” Penn said.

He also described Madonna as “someone I love,” and compared their relationship to his dynamic with his second ex-wife, actress Robin Wright, with whom he shares two children.

“It turns out it’s a lot quicker to repair a friendship after divorce if there are not kids involved,” said Penn. “It took Robin and I quite a while. There was a lot of drama. Much more important to repair it if there are kids involved, but no easy swing, right?”

There were rumors that Penn abused Madonna back in the day, including when the “Hung Up” singer filed to divorce Penn twice, first in 1987 and then in 1989.

In 2015, their relationship was in the headlines again when “Empire” creator Lee Daniels referred to Penn while mentioning men in Hollywood who committed domestic abuse. Daniels, 64, was defending actor Terrence Howard from abuse claims by his ex-wives, and told the Hollywood Reporter that Howard “ain’t done nothing different than Marlon Brando or Sean Penn.”

In response, Penn filed a $10 million lawsuit against Daniels.

“Sean is dismayed at the gratuitous attacks and statements that have been made over the years at his expense, and he wants to take a stand and correct the record,” Penn’s lawyer said in a statement at the time.

Madonna testified on Penn’s behalf and denied that he ever abused her when they were married.

“While we certainly had more than one heated argument during our marriage, Sean has never struck me, ‘tied me up,’ or physically assaulted me, and any report to the contrary is completely outrageous, malicious, reckless, and false,” she wrote in a statement at the time, according to the NYT.

Penn dropped the lawsuit in 2016 vafter Daniels apologized for his remarks and donated to one of Penn’s charities.

That same year, Madonna praised Penn when she attended his annual Help Haiti Home gala.

“I want to say Sean, I love you, from the moment that I laid eyes on you,” Madonna said, before jokingly adding, “I just wish you’d stop smoking cigarettes.”
