At the time, the couple maintained their distance in front of the public and never confirmed their relationship.
Hence, the dating rumor was considered to be fake until Jewel Kilcher talked about her relationship with Sean Penn in September 2015.
She is also a songwriter, producer, author and a poet.
The four-times Grammy Award winner gained attention as a musician after releasing her debut album .
In her new memoir, "Never Broken," Jewel reveals she and Sean Penn were an item back in the mid-'90s, when he was on a break with future-wife Robin Wright.
There was no limit to Jewel’s happiness back then as Ty was a perfect husband she could hope for.
The same year after the split with boyfriend, Gavin Newsom, Jewel Kilcher found love in another guy who later became her husband.
Jewel started dating a Ty Murray in 1998 and happily enjoyed dating each other for ten years.
But later it was revealed that they were just friends. Their relationship was public, and Poltz also helped Jewel co-write one of her hit songs, You Were Meant For Me.
The pair separated after being together for 3 years.
