SARAH Jessica Parker has insisted she never said she "dislikes" her former costar, Kim Cattrall.
The actress, 55, was asked by fans about Kim's absence from the upcoming Sex And The City revival.
Sarah announced on Sunday that SATC is returning for a 10-episode series on HBO Max with original stars Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon – but without Kim.
One fan commented on the teaser trailer Sarah shared that Kim is absent from the remake because the two stars "dislike each other".
Sarah fired back: “No. I don’t dislike her. I’ve never said that.
“Samantha isn’t part of this story. But she will always be part of us. No matter where we are or what we do. X”.
Another fan commented, "Happy to see you back but will miss Kim/Samantha”, to which Sarah responded: “We will too. We loved her so. X”.
Sarah and Kim have been locked in a public feud for years.
Back in 2019, Kim told Daily Mail that she would “never” return to the franchise, adding, “You learn lessons in life and my lesson is to do work with good people and try and make it fun.”
She then slammed Sarah for "exploiting tragedy" by giving her condolences over Kim's brother's death.
Kim wrote on Instagram at the time: “I don’t need your love or support at this tragic time @sarahjessicaparker.
“My Mom asked me today ‘When will that @sarahjessicaparker, that hypocrite, leave you alone?’ Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now."
She added: "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.”
Kim also told Piers Morgan in 2017: "This is really where I take to task the people from Sex and the City, and specifically Sarah Jessica Parker.
"I think she could've been nicer. I really think she could've been nicer. I don't know what her issue is."
Sarah told Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen in 2018 that she was "heartbroken" after Kim said never friends with her co-stars.
She explained: " I found it very upsetting because that’s not the way I recall our experience.
“It’s sad, but I always think that what ties us together was this singular experience. It was a professional experience but it became personal because it was years and years of our lives, so I hope that that eclipses anything that’s been recently spoken."
She concluded: "That many years spent doing something so special that people had a connection with it is such a privilege.”
The original series, which ran on HBO from 1998-2004, starred Sarah as Carrie Bradshaw, Cynthia Nixon as Miranda Hobbes, and Kristin Davis as Charlotte York.
In addition to the original series, two Sex and the City movies came out in 2008 and 2010.
