Sarah Jessica Parker slams National Enquirer over marriage speculation
Sarah Jessica Parker is defending her marriage.
The actress took to Instagram on Thursday to call out the National Enquirer over a planned report saying she and her husband of 22 years, Matthew Broderick, were spotted ” in a public screaming match ” in London.
Parker posted what she said was an email from the outlet requesting comment on the purported incident. She then commented on the inquiry.
” Just like clockwork. Over a decade of the same untrue, disgraceful nonsense. As usual, days ahead of our anniversary on May 19th , The National Enquirer is making its annual best effort to fabricate and undermine, this time a blissful 4 days with my husband in London. 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, ” she wrote in part.
Parker went on to explain why she decided to share the purported email.
” After much thought I have decided to share a typical letter of ‘inquiry’ from these people. As if the truth, a response or any comments from me or my publicist had any bearing on what they threaten to ‘report.’ Hey National Enquirer and your sister publications, why not celebrate a marriage of 22 years and relationship of 27 years? Because, despite your endless harassment and wasted ink, we are nearing 3 decades of love, commitment, respect, family and home. There’s your ” scoop ” From a ” reliable source. ”
CNN has reached out to the National Enquirer for comment.
Parker hitting back at the tabloid comes just three months after Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos accused the then-publisher of the outlet of trying to extort him.
American Media Inc., the former parent company of the Enquirer , has been accused of helping President Donald Trump with his election by using ” catch and kill ” tactics in an effort to keep negative stories about him from being published.
