Sarah Jessica Parker divorce rumors start up again


Last year, we read all those splashy reports that New York-based celeb couple Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick were in trouble. There were reports that Matthew was cheating; reports that Matthew refused to go to couples’ counseling; reports that Sarah Jessica was lonely and ignored, and was only staying in the relationship because of their son, James. The couple combatted those reports by being seen in public all over the place – at film and play openings, walking together near their home, holding hands and kissing. But the rumor mill is at it again. This latest buzz is that the divorce is already in progress, and their lawyers and PR reps are keeping quiet about it until it’s finished.

The sad news has been confirmed through a reliable West Village, New York source.

Sex and the City star, Sarah Jessica Parker, and her husband of nearly 12 years, Matthew Broderick are in the process of getting a divorce.

The couple, who were married in May 1997, have one child, James, 6.

I love these two together and am totally bummed about the break-up! They were both cool geeks in the 80s. Broderick with Ferris Bueller and Parker in Square Pegs. They just seemed like a natural fit.

Both have denied a divorce is in the works, and it seems their people are doing a good job of keeping quiet about it. But you heard it here, first. They’re officially dunzo.

I guess there’s only one way to know for sure if this one is true: wait for the impending announcement. This seems all too familiar – the end of Guy Ritchie and Madonna’s marriage played out this same way: months of denial, a unified front for the press, then, finally an official announcement followed by a lightning-speed divorce settlement. I hope it’s not true for Sarah Jessica and Matthew. I may be in the minority, but I’m rooting for them to make it.

    Cantelopes on her chest! I still think he’s gay. I love him, I think he’s awesome, but he’s in deep denial.

  2. kiki says:

    He does not look happy to be with her on the red carpet actually its a very telling sign among celebrities when they are about to call it quits
    I wish she get pants that fit her son every time I see him the little guy is wearing hand me down high water pants

  3. uknowitGirrrl says:

    Clenched mouth,, twisted smirk – tight shoulders. He is not happy to be next to her. She deserves better . . . his looks have certainly left him, poor thing. He was adorable in the 80s . . .

  4. luckystar says:

    He’s been rumored to be gay. I’m surprised they married in the first place.

  5. rbsesq says:

    The live coverage of the red carpet was even worse. I was uncomfortable just watching them. And when one interviewer asked SJP to introduce her date (jokingly), I though MB was going to yank the mic out of the guy’s hand and shove it down his throat.

  6. kiki says:

    yeah that was the Oscars and he looked like he wanted out. I sure they had some sort of arrangement that he do the Oscars with her then they call it quits same with Madonna dragging Guy Richie at the Cannes awards he looked the same way , get me outta here ! and several weeks later they announced their divorce.
    there been rumors of MAtthew cheating on SJP with a woman. I know ! I think he fey too.

  7. Ggirl says:

    They waited like 5 years to get married and I think SJP gave Matthew an ultimatum: marry me or else. Never a good way to start a marriage. I wonder if he insisted she wear a black wedding dress? There are just too many factors that complicate this union, M’s sexuality, SJP’s columbian marching powder issues, etc etc.
    As far as SJP is concerned, I found her insufferable to watch on SATC during the last couple of seasons because she swanned around on the show (an allegedly ensemble cast) like she was really SOMETHING! She played Carrie as conceited and sometimes downright b*tchy and it was a turnoff. This is MY OPINION ONLY, but maybe Matthew was sick of her conceit, self righteousness and hungry ambition. Maybe that is why he looked at her in that appalling way at the Oscars. I feel badly for their son.

    There is always some sort of basis when these rumors pop up.

  9. morgs says:

    She had coke problems Ggirl? I had no idea (seriously).

  10. Victoria says:

    I dont care if he’s gay, I think he’s awsome! However I never got the whole SJP is a great beauty thing. Nope dont see that at all. And she does throw herself around like she’s God’s Gift.

  11. my take says:

    I think she had coke problems because he’s gay. That sounds dramatic, but i buy it.

  12. Ggirl says:

    allegedly SJP has been lonely for a while. When The Producers on Broadway was so popular and SATC was running strong, there were rumors both Matthew and SJP were having affairs because their busy work schedules kept them apart.
    Look at this link from Lainey Gossip, “Because he ignores her”

    I love Matthew Broderick as an actor and he is hilarious with his snarky sarcasm but I am sure he is no picnic either.

  13. snappyfish says:

    I loved him in Ladyhawke, but dont care much for him otherwise. I am tired SJP and agree with the post that she ruined carrie the last seasons of SATC

    Life is too short, be happy. Their son will be better off with happy parents than two miserable parents who stayed together for his “sake”

    I am a child of divorce & that was my experience. When my parents finally threw in the towel it was like a weight was lifted. I ended up with a great relationships with both. Good luck to James no matter what happens!

  14. morgs says:

    thanks Ggirl! I wonder if this is why she’s had so much work done on her nose?

  15. someone says:

    I have never heard that she had a drug problem..she was with Robert Downy for 7 years and left him because he was an I don’t believe it…If they divorce, it sure won’t be the first hollywood couple to go belly up, and certainly not the last!

  16. Ron says:

    When these two met and started to date, Matthew was a bigger star, then SATC came along and launched SJP into the stratosphere. She is one of the wealthiest women in NYC now and he seems like and accessory to her, which is emasculating and in a realtionship of 2 actors would bring up the red ugly head of jealousy. I hope they can work things out I like them both.

  17. Mme X says:

    hard to discount the body language. I wish them both well, but they sure don’t look happy.

  18. Dirty Martini says:

    I’m rooting for them to make it too.

    Only I think they havent in quite some time.

    Probably the conception of the dip into the gene pool. Assuming a turkey baster was not in the general vicinity, which I wouldnt totally rule out.

  19. Amy says:

    I have never cared for her.I think her acting is atrocious and she is one homely woman. That being said, I do find it sad that maybe they are having marital problems,especially since they have a young son. (by the way, would it kill them to cut his hair????)

  20. Judy says:

    She cannot be too bad an actress and sell the movies she sells lol And he is kind of a has been and lives off of her and that sure is not her fault. But if he is ot spending their money on other women she should dump his ass now. SHe broke up with RDJ because he was a drug addict . SHe has never been involved with drugs that is why she left RDJ.

  21. raunnie says:

    With time, I think Sarah Jessica and Liam Neeson would make good compatriotes.

  22. heh-heh says:

    She looks like a foot!

  23. Reily says:

    Sad if true. Who knows? Time will tell.

  24. moon unit says:

    Enuff with the knocks on her looks. You bitches are ones who can’t stand an ordinary looking woman getting any attention or being celebrated. Does saying SJP looks like a foot make you feel better about your miserable life? Go brush your tooth!

  25. Elanenergy says:

    I like them as a couple, but this does seem inevitable. And I do not understand the SPJ hate. I always liked her. She’s not conceited at all. Seems smart and grounded. I love how she talks about James—not too braggy but you can tell she adores being a mom. I think SPJ is really cute, and I hate when people call her a horse face. I guess I’m a fan (gag, I never really think of myself as a fan, I’m way too objective to be a fan) lol

  26. Ro says:

    I think that her beauty depends on what your taste is. I also think that the only reason people give her such a hard time about her looks is because others have chosen to celebrate them. If no one ever described her as a great beauty or so stylish then others wouldn’t have to disagree so much. In my opinion I think she is like the the rest of us. When she is in full makeup she always looks put together and pretty, when she doesn’t have any makeup on and is taking a walk she doesn’t look that great. But neither do the rest of us.

  27. filthy cute says:

    Way to go, moon!

  28. Jacks says:

    If they are not happy together, they should divorce, period. Life is too short to stay in an unhappy situation. Their child will be loved regardless of whether he has 2 homes or 1.

    @moon unit – I’ll second that! We (society, I should say) complain about women having unrealistic expectations to live up to but it’s somehow not ok for a celeb to be a normal looking gal without all the makeup on… blah!

  29. dovesgate says:

    You aren’t always going to be happy with your spouse. That doesn’t mean its time to throw in the towel. Big issues like adultery or addiction or abuse, well, then go for it. Otherwise? Why did you get married in the first place if you weren’t going to hold to your vows to work things out?

  30. dovesgate says:

    And I love that SJP is successful without being a cookie cutter. I love when celebrities make their features work for them instead of having surgery to look like the hundreds of other starlets waiting for parts.

  31. shellyshell says:

    i am still lol over that go brush ur tooth comment, the end is near, divorce is inevetable now, and very true she did ruin the last seasons of SATC, and one last thing i didnt even no shed has surgery on her nose and i watch the reruns on dvd all the time!
