Matthew Perry — one of the stars of ‘Friends’ — has died … TMZ has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell us the actor was found Saturday at an L.A.-area home … where we’re told he appears to have drowned. Our sources say first-responders rushed over on a call for cardiac arrest. It’s unclear where exactly on the grounds this happened.
Our sources say he was found in a jacuzzi at the home … and we’re told there were no drugs found at the scene. We’re also told there is no foul play involved.
Perry is most famous for his role as Chandler Bing on the hit ’90s sitcom, which ran for 10 seasons … and with him in all 234 episodes. His character was a fan fave, as was performance — mannerisms and lines of which have gone on to be recreated and spoofed by fans all over the world. One comes to mind, in particular … “Could (blank) BE more ..”

In recent years Perry has stayed away from the limelight but in 2022 he made a major comeback after writing his memoir “Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing.”
In the memoir, Perry described his struggles with alcohol and opioids which ultimately landed him in rehab multiple times and fighting for his life in 2018 when his colon ruptured.
In his New York Times Bestseller, Perry shared “he’s attended well over 6,000 AA meetings, gone to rehab 15 times, been in detox 65 times, has been on life support and has spent between $7-$9
