Reports are circulating online that Academy Award-winner Sean Penn was kicked out of the Oscars Governors Ball last night after the ceremony but Penn's rep tells X17online exclusively, the reports are 100% FALSE!

According to reports, Penn was thrown out of last night's Governors Ball for fighting with Hurt Locker producer Greg Shapiro (who won an Oscar last night for Hurt), who is now dating Robin Wright ... Sean's soon-to-be ex. It was just last August when Wright filed for divorce after years of a tumultuous relationship with Penn.

A rep for the Oscars released this statement: "Sean Penn chose not to attend the Governors Ball." And Penn's rep concurs ... She says that she personally put Penn in his car last night before he was to attend the Vanity Fair Party and never witnessed a fight. Further, she tells us: "I saw nothing between the two of them [Shapiro]. Sean did not get banned nor kicked out of the Governors Ball or any other function last night."
