Matthew Perry has died aged 54 in a suspected accidental drowning at his home jacuzzi.
The ‘Friends’ actor’s passing has left fans and his celeb pals stunned as it comes after he recently published his memoir telling how he had overcome drink and drug addictions that almost left him dead.
Matthew, who found fame playing Chandler Bing on ‘Friends’ is thought to have drowned in a jacuzzi, according to a report from TMZ, while one of his close pals told the Daily Mail his closest friends are in a state of “total shock”.
The outlet reported sources said he “died at his own house after some physical activity” on Saturday (28.10.23) morning, and medics were called to his home to respond to an apparent heart attack incident.
TMZ added: “We’re told Matthew came home sometime after a two-hour round of pickleball, and that he sent his assistant out on errand shortly thereafter.
“We’re told when the assistant returned about two hours later, he discovered Matthew unresponsive and called 911.”
TMZ’s sources said emergency workers “rushed over on a call for cardiac arrest” and it is unclear where exactly on the grounds of the actor’s house he was found dead.
But insiders revealed he was found in a jacuzzi at his mansion.
They also said there were no drugs found at the scene and no foul play was involved.
The actor was last seen out at a restaurant called The Apple Pan in Los Angeles, where he appeared downcast despite being out with friends.
Matthew spent 10 seasons playing Chandler on ‘Friends’.
