The former chancellor says Mr Johnson now refuses to take his calls each time he phones him.
Camilla Tominey, the paper’s associate editor, asked whether Rishi had spoken with Boris since resigning from his post.
He revealed: ‘I’ve messaged and called, but unsurprisingly he hasn’t returned my calls.’
Mr Sunak caused quite the controversy when he resigned from cabinet, with critics like Nadine Dorries accusing him of being a backstabber.
Alongside former health secretary Sajid Javid, Mr Sunak wrote a scathing resignation letter in July saying he no longer had faith in the Prime Minister because of the Chris Pincher scandal.
Mr Pincher resigned from the government at the end of June as deputy chief whip after allegedly assaulting two guests the evening before at the Carlton Club, a Tory private members’ establishment in London.
At first, Mr Johnson and Downing Street said they were not aware of any ‘specific allegations’ about Mr Pincher when he was appointed to the whip’s office, but it was soon revealed Boris knew about the allegations as far back as 2019.
Mr Johnson was then forced to resign, after a humiliating number of ministers followed suit behind Mr Sunak and Mr Javid by resigning.
More recently, the Tory party has come under criticism for blue on blue fighting, with both leadership candidates – Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak – refusing to provide specific details as to how they will help people with the cost of living crisis.
