'He lied to everyone": Matthew Perry's friends react to report of his drug death

Friends of Matthew Perry react to his death from drugs

A close friend of the "Friends" star Matthew Perry claims that he was lying to everyone, and most of all to himself, saying that he had been off drugs for 19 months. The actor died of a ketamine overdose while treating depression.

A friend, whose name was not disclosed, called Matthew a manipulative person, but emphasized that he fought every day, The Sun writes. This statement came after the toxicology report on the cause of the actor's death.

"He was never [clean]," the friend said. "It's very sad. You know, the biggest lie he told was probably to himself. He could be a pretty manipulative person when it came to his struggle with addiction, but it was such a struggle, and he fought every day until the end."

In contrast, actress Jennifer Aniston insisted before the report's results were announced that Perry was feeling great before his death, the Daily Mail reports. He visited a rehab center 15 times and spent £7 million to fight addiction.

It turned out that in the last weeks before his death, the actor was prescribed weight loss medication, but instead, he was injected with testosterone, which made Matthew angry and angry. An anonymous source told the Daily Mail that a few days before his death, Perry was in good condition and even said he would "never kill himself."

The actor had been undergoing controversial ketamine therapy to treat depression and anxiety, but his last "dose" of the drug was a week and a half before he was found lifeless in the bathroom.

Matthew's ex-girlfriend, Kaitie Edwards, also argues that an investigation should be conducted against the doctors who prescribed the ketamine therapy: "It was probably a stepping stone for him to go back to using drugs. I think the doctors who worked with Matthew should be investigated. It's very hard to get ketamine on the street, but it's very easy for a doctor or nurse to get it."

Matthew Perry died at the age of 54. His body was found on October 28, 2023, in a jacuzzi. Details are in the article.

Earlier, OBOZ.UA wrote that a toxicology test found traces of ketamine, a strong anesthetic that has been frequently prescribed by doctors in the United States in recent years to treat anxiety, PTSD, and depression.
