It has been disclosed who Matthew Perry was living with before his death

On October 28, Matthew Perry, the star of the iconic TV series Friends, passed away prematurely. According to insiders close to the celebrity, the 54-year-old actor's body was discovered by his Japanese assistant, Kenny Iwamasa. According to some sources, he was living with Perry in a hillside house he rented overlooking Beverly Hills and the ocean.

While the actor was renting a luxury apartment for $49,000 a month (equivalent to 1.8 million hryvnias), his Pacific Palisades house worth $6 million (over 216 million hryvnias) was undergoing renovation. The work was completed about a month before the star owner's death. Perry was living in the rented house with his 59-year-old assistant from Japan, as reported by the Daily Mail.

Kenny Iwamasa had been assisting Perry in managing his affairs for over 25 years. This information can be found on the executive assistant's LinkedIn page.

"I thrive in chaotic situations that require order. I am discreet, and loyal, and respect absolute confidentiality. I love deadlines, contracts, crossing the t's and dotting the i's, and solving puzzling situations and projects," reads the assistant's profile.

Iwamasa declined to comment to the press, but the homeowner who rented Chandler Bing's house stated that the Japanese man was the person who "lived with Perry and looked after him and the house."

The Daily Mail obtained exclusive footage of Iwamasa with Matthew Perry, taken this year when the assistant was driving the actor around the streets of Los Angeles, running errands on his behalf, and accompanying him on shopping trips.

The "Friends" actor returned to his renovated Pacific Palisades home less than a month before he was found dead in a Jacuzzi. Sources say that it was his assistant, Iwamasa, who found the star's body.

Perry had another assistant, Briana Brancato, who worked for the actor for seven years. However, the 34-year-old quit her job to become a personal trainer just a few months ago.

Interestingly, while the actor was living in Beverly Hills, his neighbors didn't even know about it. Perry either disguised himself very well or rarely left the house.

As you know, immediately after the tragic news of Chandler Bing's death, fans were waiting for a reaction from other "friends," but there was none for quite some time. Later, on the third day after the tragedy, the actors made a joint statement. In it, they noted that they were "devastated by the loss of Matthew" and added that they wanted to "take time out to mourn and reflect on this incomprehensible loss."

All of the Friends cast members also attended Perry's funeral. The funeral ceremony was quite modest and unremarkable. About 20 people gathered at Forest Lawn Cemetery in the Hollywood Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles, less than 1.5 km from the Warner Bros. studio where the show was filmed.

As you know, the police searched the deceased's apartment. They did not find the drugs that the filmmaker had been addicted to for many years, but they did find a lot of prescription drugs, including antidepressants.

The results of initial toxicology tests showed whether Perry died of an overdose of fentanyl (a synthetic opioid that is 50 times stronger than heroin and 100 times stronger than morphine) or methamphetamine.

As a reminder, the actor was found dead in a jacuzzi. "He seems to have drowned," law enforcement insiders told reporters. It is noted that the first emergency services arrived at the scene due to a call about a cardiac arrest. All the details are in the article.

Fans speculate that the actor could have committed suicide. The reason for such speculation was Perry's strange posts a few days before his death. In particular, he posted a photo from the same jacuzzi where his body was found and left the caption: "Do you understand what I'm trying to tell you?"
