Pierce Brosnan’s estranged son, Christopher Brosnan, made a rare public outing nearly 20 years after his father “cut [him] off” over the latter’s struggle with addiction.

Christopher, 51 — who worked as an assistant director on Pierce’s movies “Tomorrow Never Dies,” (1997) “The World Is Not Enough” (1999) and “Robinson Crusoe” (1997) — was photographed Friday exiting a Waitrose grocery store in London.

The filmmaker was seemingly alone as he ran the errand.

The Irishman went on to marry his current wife, Keely Shaye Brosnan, in 2001, and they welcomed two sons: Dylan Brosnan, 27, and Paris Brosnan, 23.

Christopher’s drug abuse, overdose and run-ins with the law forced Pierce to distance himself.

“Christopher is still very lost. Shockingly so. I know where he is, but he’s having a hard life,” his dad lamented to Playboy magazine in 2005.

“I can only have strong faith and believe he will recover. He has tested everybody in this family but none more so than himself. He knows how to get out. He doesn’t want to.”
