Matthew Perry’s ex-fiancée shares emotional statement following star’s death

Matthew Perry’s ex-fiancée shares emotional statement following star’s death

The Friends legend proposed to Molly Hurwitz in November 2020 but the pair called it off the following year.

Matthew Perry's former fiancée has paid tribute to the star following his sudden death on Saturday (28 October).

Molly Hurwitz first started dating the actor, 54, in 2018 before they got engaged in November 2020.

The pair then decided to call their nuptials off in July the following year, as Perry said it just 'didn't work out'.

Literary manager Hurwitz thanked the Friends legend for 'everything she learned' during their relationship in a poignant Instagram post.

The 32-year-old shared an image of Perry's silhouette against the backdrop of a wintry city on Monday evening (30 October).

She explained she had been right by his side while he was gearing up for the release of Friends: The Reunion in 2021.

Perry reunited with co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer, Courtney Cox and Lisa Kudrow to reminisce about their time on the hit 90s sitcom.

She wrote: "He would love that the world is talking about how talented he was. And he really was very talented.

"As the Friends reunion was approaching, we rewatched the show together. 'F**k, I was so good!!!…See what I did there???'

"We rewound and studied scenes. Our respect and appreciation of humor is something that connected us. Being with him as he rediscovered his brilliance was magical."

She then said that she 'obviously knew that man in a very different way, too' after their relationship.

Hurwitz continued: "While I loved him deeper than I could comprehend, he was complicated, and he caused pain like I’d never known.

"No one in my adult life has had a more profound impact on me than Matthew Langford Perry.

"I have tremendous gratitude for that, for everything I learned from our relationship.

"I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention Al Anon, an invaluable resource for those who love someone struggling with this destructive disease.

"Matty, I feel relief that you are at peace. Sincerely, Moll-o-Rama(…fication)."

Perry was reportedly found dead in a hot tub at his Los Angeles home on Saturday.

The actor's death has been treated as a ‘water rescue’, according to a Los Angeles Fire Department spokesperson.

The heartbroken Friends cast has also released a statement paying tribute to him, saying they are 'utterly devastated'.

It read: "We were more than just cast mates. We are a family.

"There is so much to say, but right now we’re going to take a moment to grieve and process this unfathomable loss.

"In time we will say more, as and when we are able.

"For now, our thoughts and our love are with Matty’s family, his friends, and everyone who loved him around the world."
