This is a story that is still on the hearts and minds of so many people. More details are coming out about Matthew Perry’s death and what happened on Saturday.

  1. The latest today is that paramedics did not perform CPR on Matthew Perry, because he was deceased when they arrived at his home.
  2. There was a story circulating that Friends star, Lisa Kudrow, would be taking in his dog.  That story is false, he apparently did not have any pets at the time of his death.

A lot of people wondered when his Friends co-stars would release statements and yesterday they did.  In fact, just like in real life and being a ‘family’, they released a statement together saying, 

“We are all so utterly devastated by the loss of Matthew. We were more than just cast mates. We are a family,” their statement reads. “There is so much to say, but right now we’re going to take a moment to grieve and process this unfathomable loss.”

“In time we will say more, as and when we are able,” the statement continues. “For now, our thoughts and our love are with Matty’s family, his friends, and everyone who loved him around the world.”

The message is then signed by Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer.

Maggie Wheeler, who played love interest Janice, said, “What a loss. The world will miss you Matthew Perry . The joy you brought to so many in your too short lifetime will live on. I feel so very blessed by every creative moment we shared. ♥️”
