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