  • SJP flees to Hamptons with husband following affair rumours

    Sarah Jessica Parker and her husband Matthew Broderick have fled to their holiday home in the Hamptons to escape rumours the actor cheated on her.

    Press reports alleged last month that Broderick had enjoyed an extra-marital affair, and the couple last week took their five-year-old son James Wilke to their posh Hamptons home on Long Island to escape the press attention.

    SJP looked relaxed in blue board shorts and a stripy tee as she hit the beach with a pile of beach toys for James.

    A source last month alleged 46-year-old Matthew, who’s been married to Sarah for 11 years, enjoyed a series of late-night liaisons with a 25-year-old woman while the actress was filming Sex and the City: The Movie.

    But a source defended the couple, saying: ‘They have never had a conventional marriage, but it works for the two of them.

    ‘Sure they fight like other couples but they love each other and their little boy. They are so private and hate all this silly gossip.’

    Before the Sex And The City premiere in May, Parker called her marriage to the actor ‘a treacherous train ride’.

    She added: ‘I’m really lucky that he is the father of my son. But that doesn’t mean we always agree on everything.

    ‘I’m happy to be with him regardless, but I’m sure there are many times he wishes he wasn’t with me.’
