Kim Cattrall has a message for her former Sex and the City co-star Sarah Jessica Parker: Spare me your sympathy.
The actresses — who played Samantha Jones and Carrie Bradshaw in the hit 90s television show and later movies— have reportedly had a strained relationship for years, but their feud has been made public on Instagram following the unexpected death of Cattrall’s brother.
Christopher Cattrall, 55, was found dead last week after going missing from his home in Lacombe, Canada, on January 30.
Cattrall had appealed to her Instagram followers to help spread the word of his disappearance, but then announced his “unexpected” death just a few hours later.
“I would like to thank my fans, friends, and my #SexandtheCity colleagues for the outpouring of support for myself and family over the past 72 hours,” she said.
But that message didn’t extend to Parker, who had offered her condolences in a red-carpet interview with Extra.
“I can’t begin to know how her family is managing such a loss,” she said.
In a follow-up post, Cattrall lashed out at Parker, calling her a “hypocrite” and saying she didn’t need her “love or support at this tragic time”.
“Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now,” she wrote.
“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.”
