Matthew Perry posted what would become his final Instagram post six days before he passed away.

Friends actor Matthew Perry sadly passed away on October 28, 2023 from an apparent drowning. According to CNN, “A 911 call came in Saturday at 4:07 p.m. for a water rescue emergency. LAPD responded at 4:10 p.m. and characterized the call as a death investigation shortly after.”

Perry’s personal assistant left his Los Angeles-area home to run errands. The Mirror UK reports she was picking up a new iPhone and new prescription glasses for the actor. When she returned to his house, she discovered him unresponsive in his hot tub and immediately called 911.

Matthew struggled with substance and alcohol abuse most of his adult life.

Perry publicly – and privately – battled demons and in recent years revealed that he went to rehab 15 different times, costing him nine million dollars. His drug and alcohol use got so bad, that his colon burst from “opioid overuse” in 2018.

He always managed to get clean and in 2015, said that helping others get sober is the best thing about him.

“I’ve had a lot of ups and downs in my life and a lot of wonderful accolades,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “The best thing about me is that if an alcoholic comes up to me and says, ‘Will you help me stop drinking?’ I will say, ‘Yes. I know how to do that.'”

Despite his struggles, Matthew continued to be a beloved figure in Hollywood.

Watching his wholesome and hilarious character, Chandler Bing, from the sitcom Friends will now be one of the ways fans can continue to watch Perry’s work.

“Mattman” is his name and Batman put together. The actor loved  Batman and even had his own Batcave in his home. In fact, the last seven Instagram posts he shared had a Batman reference, which had fans worried for him and thought he was maybe showing a cry for help in his final days.

Perry’s final X post came on October 26.

Perry was more active on X – formerly Twitter – and posted on that app as recently as October 26th.

We are sending our thoughts and prayers to his family, friends, and all who loved him.
