Pierce Brosnan recently posted the poster of Men of The Year featuring Shaquille O’ Neal and Matthew Perry. His caption read:
“My heartfelt condolences to the family, colleagues, friends, and fans for the loss of your beloved Matthew Perry. I was proud to know him and was bedazzled by his extraordinary comedic timing. It took great courage to become the man he became in life. My deepest sympathies, love, and prayers for you all.”
Friends star Matthew Perry had been found dead in the hot tub of his Los Angeles home at age 54.
Perry was alone at home after playing a 2-hour game of pickleball, during which he sent his assistant on an errand. On getting back, they found Perry unresponsive and proceeded to call 911.
At the death scene, no hard drugs were found around Perry, only prescription pills. His official cause of death is still being investigated.
According to law enforcement sources, Matthew Perry’s body, which was reportedly found in his hot tub from a suspected drowning, hadn’t been in the water for an extended period.
The source revealed to TMZ that when first responders arrived at Perry’s Pacific Palisades residence, his body was not waterlogged, casting suspicions on his cause of death.
At the time of his death, the “Friends” star was alone at home after allegedly playing pickleball earlier in the day at Riviera Country Club. On getting home, he sent his assistant on an errand, but when the assistant returned, they found Perry unresponsive in the jacuzzi, leading to a frantic 911 call.
