Sarah Jessica Parkerdefended her nearly 22-year marriage toMatthew Broderickon Wednesday, while slamming tabloid reports that have claimed relationship troubles between the two.
The Sex and the Cityactress, 54, shared a photo of an email that appeared to be fromThe National Enquirer, which explained that the tabloid was preparing a story about an alleged “public screaming match” between her and Broderick and wanted Parker’s comment.
Broderick, 57, has been working in London recently, starring in the West End production of Kenneth Lonergan’s play,The Starry Messenger (his 13-week limited run in the drama begins Thursday). The Enquirer‘s email claimed Parker had confronted her husband about how much time he is spending overseas.
Rather than respond privately, Parker — who shares three kids with Broderick: James, 16, and 9-year-old twins Marion and Tabitha — decided to callThe Enquirerout for her 5.4 million followers to see.
“Just like clockwork. Over a decade of the same, untrue, disgraceful nonsense,” said Parker in a lengthy Instagram comment, denying the reports.
“As usual, days ahead of our anniversary on May 19th,The National Enquireris making its annual best effort to fabricate and undermine, this time a blissful four days with my husband in London,” Parker continued. “There was no ‘screaming match’ as alleged in a restaurant or on the street, nor was there a confrontation as alleged about his time in London. My children and I are enormously proud of the work he is doing.”
