Sarah Jessica Parker isn’t having it with the tabloids today. In her latest Instagram post, the Sex and the City actress claps back at the National Enquirer for claiming she and her husband of 22 years, Matthew Broderick, were “caught on camera in a public screaming match” in London.
The publication sent SJP’s team an email asking for comment on this story, which claims she and Broderick “erupted at each other over dinner…where Sarah confronted Matthew over how much time he is spending in London.” Instead of replying, though, she put the Enquirer on blast, posting a photo of the email alongside a pointed message.
“Just like clockwork. Over a decade of the same untrue, disgraceful nonsense,” Parker wrote. “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.”
She then shut down the Enquirer‘s rumor, writing, “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.”
Parker continued, “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.'”

Many of Sarah Jessica Parker’s famous friends chimed in with messages of support. “YOU GO SJ!!!!!!!! AND HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO A BEAUTIFUL LOVING COUPLE!!” Andy Cohen wrote.
Gwyneth Paltrow commented, “This is brilliant. And happy anniversary 😍”
Meanwhile, Parker’s Sex and the City co-star Willie Garson (a.k.a. Stanford Blatch) said, “Dear National Enquirer: This loving family takes care of each other, are terrific friends to many, and support us and each other unconditionally. I speak to Mrs. almost daily, and Mr. quite often as well. Oh, the horror! Perhaps find another punching bag, or someone else to lie about. ❤, me.”
The National Enquirer has yet to respond.
