Actor Matthew Perry Reportedly Battling Drug Addiction Again
If you’re a FRIENDS fan, no doubt you’ve heard of Matthew Perry’s issues with addiction over the years.
He's made at least two trips to rehabilitation centers — once in 1997 and again in 2001, both times for a slew of narcotics, including Vicodin.
He’s been presumed sober for years, however, new leaked text messages show the troubled actor has potentially been attempting to buy drugs after years of presumed sobriety.
In an interview with DailyMailTV, pornographic actress and Perry’s one-time lover, Maddy O’Reilly, shared screenshots of her texts and direct messages, where she alleges the actor asked if she had a ‘contact’ to help him ‘purchase some pills.’
Though O'Reilly was non-committal either way in her texts, she assured DailyMail that she wasn't a drug dealer, nor a drug user, and had no reputation for partying in general.
If you’re not sure when Perry was suffering from his drug addiction, all you need to do is take a look through the seasons of friends, where Perry’s weight fluctuated according to the severity of his addiction at the time.
Perry and his representatives have yet to comment on the story; however, the texts show him seeking many of the same drugs he's struggled to get off of in the past.
In O'Reilly's screenshots, she asks him what kind of pills he's looking for, and he responds: "Vicaden/Roxy's/oxys?"
We wish him all the best in his recovery.
