Some friendships do go out of style.

A grieving Kim Cattrall slammed former “Sex and the City” co-star Sarah Jessica Parker on social media Saturday for offering condolences about the death of her brother, Chris Cattrall.

“I don’t need your love or support at this tragic time,” Cattrall posted on her Instagram account.

In a caption, she called Parker a “hypocrite” and “cruel,” adding, “Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend.”

Cattrall’s 55-year-old brother went missing on Feb. 3. A day later she took to Instagram to announce his sudden passing.

After the news broke, Parker posted her condolences.

“Dearest Kim, my love and condolences to you and yours and Godspeed to your beloved brother. Xx,” she wrote.

But Cattrall blasted her longtime castmate’s comments as insincere.

“My Mom asked me today ‘When will that @sarahjessicaparker, that hypocrite, leave you alone?” she wrote in response. “Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now.”

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.

Despite portraying best friends on “Sex and the City” from 1998 to 2004, the pair’s strained real life relationship has played out in public in the ensuing years.

Rumors of a rift between the two swirled from the start with tussles over salary negotiations and who was the bigger star.

The smash HBO show was followed by a duo of popular follow up films, but Cattrall declined to reprise her role as Samantha Jones in a third big screen installment — telling Piers Morgan last year that the castmates were “never friends.”

“I’ve moved on, this is what my sixties are about, they’re about me making decisions for me, not my career, for me. And that feels frickin’ fantastic,” the 61-year-old said.

The possibility of all four original cast members, including actresses Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon, reuniting has long been overshadowed by the drama between Cattrall and Parker.

Parker, 52, who played the cosmopolitan-swilling Carrie Bradshaw on the show told Entertainment Tonight this week that she just wanted Cattrall to know she was in her thoughts.

“If somebody in your life, whether you’re in touch with them or not, (is) suffering for any reason, it’s involuntary that you want to convey condolences or sadness or just let someone know you’re thinking about them,” she said.

The two have continued to attribute their drama and frequent feuding to the media attempting to pit strong women against one another.

“This sort of narrative, this ongoing catfight, it really upset me for a very long time,” Parker told Howard Stern in 2016.
