A simmering tension between the leading ladies has been well documented over the years, but following the tragic death of Kim's brother Chris last week their long-running feud re-ignited in spectacular style.
As SJP reached out to offer support to her former co-star's grieving family, Kim did not hold back when she blasted the gesture as 'a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now. The actresses are said to have been feuding for years Image: As sex-crazed PR Samantha, Kim earned a reputation as a 'natural comedienne and scene stealer' - which according to show insiders, did not sit well with her three co-stars, particularly the leading lady herself.
Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, who played Miranda Hobbes and Charlotte York, are said to have formed an alliance with SJP, 'deliberately excluding' Kim from their clique, who in turn allegedly became increasingly isolated on set. There were even rumours the trio refused to speak to Kim outside of what was written on their scripts, even on 15 hour filming days. Hulton Archive Show insiders said Kim would eat lunch alone Image: Getty Images Sources on set said the three would even eat their lunch away from Kim.
For a time Kim had an ally in series creator and producer Darren Star but after his departure at the end of the second season, his replacement Michael Patrick King made it clear he was a friend to SJP. But the feud between the girls widened with even make-up artists refusing to speaking to Kim', according to Page Six. Then during a shoot in Atlantic City there were reports SJP, Cynthia and Kristin all stayed at a house together, while Kim was forced to find her own accomodation.
Kim has lashed out at SJP Image: SJP was also granted a promotion to executive editor giving her more power over her co-stars.
A source told the Mail: Kim said they never got on Image: Getty Despite the history between them, Kim agreed to take part in the Sex And The City film, four years after the show had ended. SJP admitted in an interview with Elle magazine that filming with her old co-stars hadn't been easy. But I don't have any regrets about how I've treated people. We've been colleagues and it's a very healthy place to be.
The common ground we had was the series and the series is over," kim said. I don't know what her issue is, I never have. Getty Following reports the pair haven't spoken in years, Sarah reached out to offer her condolences after hearing the news Kim's brother Chris had died after being reported missing this month. SJP shared a post on social media, saying: Kim didn't want support from her ex co-star In the accompanying caption, Kim said "your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now.
