A week after her brother was found dead, Kim went on Instagram to confirm her feelings about SJP.

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."

An accompanying image read, “I don’t need your love or support at this tragic time @SarahJessicaParker.” 

Kim was referring to an interview in which SJP offered condolences to her co-star.
