Sarah Jessica Parker and her husband, Matthew Broderick, are allegedly on the brink of divorcing after repeated rumors that he cheated on her continued to surface.
The Sex and the City actress has been married to Broderick for 17 years, but over the last few months dogged speculation regarding his numerous infidelities with younger women have been reported. Broderick’s affairs have never actually been confirmed, and Parker has always stood by her man and trusted his denials.
However, the most recent cheating scandal has proven to be the final straw, and she is now believed to be preparing to divorce Broderick.
This news comes after the pair traveled to Ireland in a bid to save their flailing marriage. Parker is believed to have booked the entire holiday, and she even took her husband to a vacation cottage in Donegal, Ireland, where the duo enjoyed a therapeutic and relaxing vacation in their four-room abode.
Well, that was the plan anyway. However, an eyewitness has now revealed that the duo spent most of the trip locked in their “remote home” having crisis talks to save their relationship. When they did venture out for some food, their stony silence and callous behavior towards each other suggested that they were apoplectic with one another.
The source told the National Enquirer, “They normally venture all around Donegal, but this time they spent the majority of their time locked away in their remote home out in the countryside. One evening they went into Nancy’s, a seafood restaurant, and hardly said a word to each other. It was pretty clear during the trip that Sarah and Matthew were having some pretty intense discussions.”
Parker is also thought to have told friends that even though she is “constantly trying to keep the marriage fresh and fun,” the cheating allegations have made this much harder.
In May, Broderick was linked with Sarah Symonds, who describes herself on Twitter as an “Infidelity Analyst.” This even forced Parker to respond publicly to the allegations, and she launched a vicious tirade against Symonds on her Twitter account.
She even brought up the subject during an interview with Net-A-Porter’s The Edit. At the time she stated:
“I can’t figure out what she hated so much about me that she did that. And I just can’t imagine anything lower than that. I don’t think you can be like that without thinking about what you are saying. Other people can be mean, and that’s something I just have to make peace with it. I see mean stuff every day: when I look at Twitter I scroll with one eye open and one closed. That particular day, it was just one of the things I saw. I can’t stand it when women say unfriendly things to other women. Why does it have to be like that? Why do we go from (I disagree with you) to I hate you, I attack you, I use words that I know are hurtful? And we’ve never met! You’d think at this point in my life I would be accustomed to it, but we keep finding new ways of expressing ourselves, new outlets to be unfriendly and cruel.”
