The Mysterious Death of Matthew Perry: New Claims Emerge

The untimely death of Matthew Perry, beloved actor and star of the hit sitcom “Friends,” continues to leave a void in the hearts of fans worldwide. His passing, marked by the tragic discovery of his lifeless body in a hot tub at his LA home, was a devastating blow to those who knew and loved him.

While Perry had openly battled his demons of drug addiction and alcoholism for years, his memoir released last year, titled “Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing,” shed light on his journey toward reclaiming his life. Initial reports confirmed that there were no drugs such as fentanyl or meth in his system at the time of his death. However, three weeks later, one of Perry’s ex-girlfriends, Kayti Edwards, has made a shocking claim that adds a new layer of complexity to the story.

Perry’s passing on October 28 sent shockwaves throughout the entertainment industry. The actor, who catapulted to fame with his portrayal of Chandler Bing on “Friends,” was laid to rest at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles, with his co-stars in attendance. Speculation around the cause of his death has run rampant since then.

Although Perry faced his own struggles with addiction, he dedicated his later life to helping others in their own battles. He aspired to be remembered not only for his acting but for the impact he made in the lives of those fighting addiction.

TMZ initially broke the news of Perry’s death, reporting that first responders had rushed to his property after a call for cardiac arrest. Recent reports suggest that Perry’s official death certificate lists his cause of death as “deferred,” leaving room for speculation and conspiracy theories.

Now, Kayti Edwards, a former model and one of Perry’s ex-girlfriends, has shared her thoughts on his passing. Edwards, who briefly dated Perry in 2006 after meeting at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, speculated that he may have “relapsed” before his death. She stated, “I know Matthew, and I know that he wouldn’t have just drowned. I think he might have taken pills in the week leading up to this.”

According to Edwards, even though she and Perry’s relationship was short-lived, they remained close. She also worked as his assistant in 2011. Edwards mentioned that there were no prescription painkillers found at the scene, explaining, “They said there were no prescription painkillers at the scene, which doesn’t surprise me because he didn’t leave drugs lying around.”

Edwards also referred to Perry’s final Instagram post as potential evidence of a relapse. The post featured Perry sitting in his hot tub with the caption, “Oh, so warm water swirling around makes you feel good? I’m Mattman.” According to Edwards, this alter ego of “Mattman” only surfaced when Perry was not sober and feeling invincible. She recalled occasions when she witnessed him using drugs and expressed her concerns, to which he would reply, “‘No, I’m Mattman.’”

As the friends, family, and fans of Matthew Perry grieve his loss, the circumstances surrounding his death remain shrouded in mystery. The claims made by Kayti Edwards only deepen the complexity of this tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with Perry’s loved ones during this difficult time.
