Matthew Perry’s ex-girlfriend says she fears the Friends star suffered a relapse before he died and cites a clue in the actor’s latest Instagram post as evidence he may have been using again
Matthew Perry’s ex-girlfriend has revealed she believes the star suffered a relapse before his death and doesn’t accept that he ‘just drowned in his own jacuzzi’.
Kayti Edwards pointed to the Friends actor’s use of his nickname “Mattman” in a social media post as evidence of his possible reuse.
Edwards, Julie Andrews’ step-granddaughter, dated Perry in 2006 and remained close to him even after they broke up.
The Hollywood actor was found unconscious in a hot tub at his LA home on October 28. Initial tests showed he had no fentanyl or meth in his system, but a full toxicology report is still pending to determine his cause of death.
Now Edwards has questioned the official story, saying: “There are a lot of things that don’t add up to me.”
Matthew Perry’s ex-girlfriend Kayti Edwards said there are “a lot of things that don’t add up” about the star’s death as she speculated he may have been using drugs again before his death.

Edwards claimed that Perry’s use of his alter ego “Mattman” indicated that he may have fallen off the wagon, as he often used the nickname while getting high.
“I don’t think he just drowned in his jacuzzi, that doesn’t sound good,” Edwards said The sun.
‘I know Matthew and I know he wouldn’t have just drowned. I think he took pills the week before.
“They said there were no prescription painkillers on site, which doesn’t surprise me because he didn’t leave any medications lying around.
“He was paranoid and would take them all, so there was no evidence whatsoever, and then head out for more when he was ready.”
Perry had been open about his struggles with alcohol and drug addiction, revealing that he once endured 55 Vicodin a day at his lowest.
And Edwards claims that using Mattman to sign off on one of his Instagram posts was a telltale sign that Perry had fallen off the map again.
The post showed Perry relaxing in the hot tub, where his lifeless body would eventually be found.
‘He didn’t do that Mattman thing when he was sober. Mattman came out when he wasn’t sober and he felt a little invincible.

Matthew Perry’s death certificate shows his official cause of death is being delayed pending toxicology reports, which could take weeks to determine
“I was around when he got high, even though I didn’t get high with him, and when I said maybe he should cool it down a little with the drugs, he said, ‘No, I’m Mattman.’
She added that the star, best known for bringing Friends’ Chandler Bing to life, was often obsessed with water when he was high.
She added, “One time, his neighbor in Hollywood Hills found Matthew naked and high in his pool.
“I had to go over there and get him out of his neighbor’s pool. He had a thing for water when he was using drugs.
“He always wanted to be in the pool or the jacuzzi.”
The pair met at Edwards’ grandfather’s house before reconnecting after a chance meeting at an AA meeting.
The fact that Perry was reportedly alone at the time of his death has also fueled Edwards’ suspicions.
“When he got high, he was always alone,” Edwards added, explaining that Pery was “strategic” and often went to lengths to hide his drug use.
The document also names Perry’s industry as “Entertainment” and his stepfather Keith Morrison as the “informant.”

The mother-of-four started working as Perry’s assistant in 2011 and revealed that the actor often asked her to pick up drugs, including heroin and crack, while she was pregnant.
Perry’s death certificate, obtained by The Blast, shows his official cause of death is being delayed pending toxicology reports, which could take weeks to determine.
It lists Perry’s industry as “Entertainment” and his stepfather Keith Morrison as the “informant” who provided the information for the death certificate.
The document also listed the Friends star’s time of death as 4:17 p.m.
Despite his long-term addiction problems, Perry had made efforts to get clean, including hiring a long-term sober companion.
In his memoir, Perry referred to a female personal assistant and “best friend” under the pseudonym “Erin.”
Erin has since been unmasked as Morgan Moses, 37, a professional who specializes in ‘therapeutic crisis intervention’.
Perry credited Moses with “saving his life” after she sat by his bedside every night for five months while he recovered from an exploded colon following an opioid binge.
The star was laid to rest last week in an intimate ceremony at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in the Hollywood Hills, attended by his Friends co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow, Courtney Cox and David Schwimmer.
