Kim Cattral pays an emotional tribute to late brother Chris Cattral
The cause of death for the actress' brother still remains unknown
Kim Cattrall attended a memorial service for her late brother, Christopher, in Edinburgh, Scotland on Saturday. The 61-year-old shared a picture of herself smiling alongside the Reverend Peter Sutton as she celebrated Chris’ life, after he passed away earlier this month.
The Sex and the City star took to Instagram on Saturday to pay tribute to her later brother, Christopher, at his memorial service. Christopher was found dead on his property in Blackfalds, Canada.
“Thank you to St. Cuthbert’s Parish minister in Edinburgh Reverend Peter Sutton and our wonderful, joyful Scottish friends for making us laugh today,” she captioned a smiling snap. “Lighting a candle in memory of our brother, son, father, & husband, Christopher Adrian Alexander Cattrall. Forever in our thoughts. RIP xo.”
Just a few days prior his death, the actress believed he had gone missing and urged the public to contact the police if they had seen him. No cause of death has been disclosed, but it is not being treated as suspicious, though authorities didn't explain why. They also didn't reveal any details of how or when the missing man's body was found.
Cattrall revealed her brother had died just hours after telling fans that he had been missing for days. “It is with great sadness that myself and my family announce the unexpected passing of our son and brother, Chris Cattrall,” she wrote on Instagram. “At this time we ask for privacy. We want to thank you all on social media for your outpouring of love and support in this trying time.”
Despite their ongoing feud, her co-star Sarah Jessica Parker tweeted her condolences but was accused by Kim of "exploiting" the tragedy.
Cattrall took to Instagram to slam Parker, writing: "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. I don't need your love or support at this tragic time @sarahjessicaparker," she wrote on Instagram, adding, "I'm writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your 'nice girl' persona."
Cattrall and Parker's feud had been growing over the last few months after Cattrall refused to do a third Sex and the City movie and said that Parker and the rest of their co-stars were never friends.
