Kim Cat­trall hits out at Sarah Jes­sica over brother’s death

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS - BY KAREN ROCK­ETT TRAGIC RID­DLE Chris dis­ap­peared

SEX and the City ac­tress Kim Cat­trall has ripped into her hated co-star Sarah Jes­sica Parker for “ex­ploit­ing” a fam­ily tragedy.

An­gry Kim, 61, blew her top af­ter re­ceiv­ing a “cruel” mes­sage of con­do­lence over the sud­den death of her brother.

She ac­cused Sarah Jes­sica – with whom she has had a bit­ter, long-run­ning feud – of be­ing a hyp­ocrite, us­ing the be­reave­ment as an op­por­tu­nity to make her­self ap­pear kind and car­ing.

In an In­sta­gram out­burst, griev­ing Kim told her 52-yearold ri­val to stop “reach­ing out”, us­ing cap­i­tal let­ters for em­pha­sis: “Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t al­ready). You are not my fam­ily. You are not my friend.

“So I’m writ­ing to tell you one last time to stop ex­ploit­ing our tragedy in or­der to re­store your ‘nice girl’ per­sona.”

And she added: “I don’t need your love or sup­port at this tragic time @sarah­jes­s­i­ca­parker”.

The ac­tresses, who are said to have dis­liked each other since Sex and the City be­gan 20 years ago, clashed over the mys­tery death of Kim’s brother Chris in Canada.

The 55-year-old’s body was found near his ru­ral home in Al­berta af­ter he dis­ap­peared leav­ing his door open and his seven dogs unat­tended. News of the tragedy prompted an out­pour­ing of mes­sages of sup­port and sym­pa­thy on so­cial me­dia, in­clud­ing one from Sarah Jes­sica which read: ““Dear­est Kim, my love and con­do­lences to you and yours and God­speed to your beloved brother. Xx”

Sarah Jes­sica also spoke about it on TV, telling a chat show: “If some­body in your life is suf­fer­ing it’s in­vol­un­tary that you want to con­vey con­do­lences or sad­ness.” In an­other in­ter­view she said: “I can’t be­gin to know how her fam­ily is manag­ing such a loss. We all send love and con­do­lences.”

But her claims to be gen­uinely sym­pa­thetic only roused Kim to even greater heights of anger.

She blasted on In­sta­gram: “My Mom asked me ‘When will that @ sarah jes­sica parker, that hyp­ocrite, leave you alone?’

“Your con­tin­u­ous reach­ing out is a painful re­minder of how cruel you re­ally were then and now.”

Kim added a link to an ar­ti­cle headed, “In­side the Mean -Girls cul­ture that de­stroyed Sex and the City.”

How­ever she also posted a mes­sage of thanks for the sup­port of many other peo­ple, in­clud­ing fans, friends and fel­low Sex and the City ac­tress Cyn­thia Nixon.

The pop­u­lar show, about the love lives of four women in New York, ran from 1998 to 2004 and was made into two films.
