Cape Town – Madonna offered to re-marry ex-husband Sean Penn for $150k at a charity gala on Friday night.

The fundraiser - where she raised more than $7.5m for her charity Raising Malawi - was just one of the many parties during Art Basel Miami Beach, a contemporary art fair.

The Material Girl dug deep into her personal treasures, auctioning off pieces from her own art collection, a costume from her tour modelled by Ariana Grande and black and white photos from her 1985 wedding to ex-husband Sean Penn shot by the late photographer Herb Ritts.

At one point, in an attempt to get a higher bid on one of her necklaces, Madonna got Sean involved by offering to re-marry him if he bid $150k and he was quick to agree!

Unfortunately, he lost out to other bidders but still got to have a little fun with Madonna.

The Gunman actor joined his former wife onstage, handcuffed her and crawled through her legs as the two tried to coerce the audience to bid higher.

"For once, he's not the one being arrested," she joked.

The party lasted until early Saturday morning when Madonna took the stage for an hour-long performance in front of a star studded crowd that included Leonardo DiCaprio, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, James Corden, ex-boyfriend A-Rod and Courtney Love.

Madonna adopted her 11-year-old son David from an orphanage in Malawi more than a decade ago. At the time, she said, "I didn't know where Malawi was" on the map. David had pneumonia and malaria. His mother died in childbirth and his siblings were also dead.

He was on hand to introduce his mother, telling audience members who paid at least $5k per plate, "I realise I'm one of the lucky ones."
