BUYING PILLS FROM A PORN STAR!
The former Friends funnyman is sadly spiralling again
Clearly it hasn’t been Matthew Perry’s day, month or even his year for a very long time. And now fears are growing that the former Friends star has relapsed after adult entertainer Maddy O’reilly accused him of hitting her up for drugs just three weeks ago!
“I was shocked. I knew he is a recovering addict, but it was coming out of nowhere,” says Maddy, who’s shared Instagram messages she alleges are from the actor, asking her for “40/50” pills of Vicodin, Roxicodone and Oxycontin and admitting he was willing to pay “a lot” for them.
The porn star, who also claims that she slept with Matthew once back in 2013 before he started giving her the runaround, reckons she heard from him again out of the blue in October when he messaged her to ask about possibly buying the drugs.
“Knowing that he’s had a problem in the past, that he mentioned he was going through detox and then he’s asking me for pills, I’m afraid that he has relapsed and his health could be in serious danger,” Maddy says.
And there’s good reason to be concerned. Matthew, 48, who stepped out looking bloated and dishevelled in Beverly Hills last week, has had a prolonged history with drug addiction.
“I was a sick guy,” says the actor of being hooked on alcohol and opiates during his run on Friends. And while he’s had two stints in rehab – in 1997 and again in 2001 – Matthew’s admitted it’s been an ongoing struggle.
“You can’t have a drug problem for 30 years and then expect to have it be solved in 28 days,” he said in 2015. “Getting sober is a really hard thing to do.”
Fingers crossed Matt finally gets the help he needs.
