An ongoing feud between the stars of Sex and the City has plumbed new depths, with Kim Cattrall accusing Sarah Jessica Parker of exploiting the death of her brother. Cattrall’s brother Chris (55) was found dead last week after going missing from his home in Alberta, Canada.

After announcing his death, Cattrall thanked both her fans and her Sex and the City colleagues for support. But four days after posting that message, the actor, who played Samantha on the hit TV show, followed it up with an Instagram post directed at Parker, criticising her for “reaching out”, and saying she had been cruel.

In the post’s caption, Cattrall said Parker’s “continual reaching out” was “a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now”. She went on: “You are not my family. You are not my friend” and urged Parker to “stop exploiting our tragedy.”

Cattrall’s post linked to an article in the New York Post from October 2017. It described an ongoing feud between the stars which culminated with a dispute over whether to produce a third Sex and the City movie, which Cattrall said she did not want to do.
