Courteney cox matthew perry dating
In 1997 the actor completed a 28-day program for Vicodin addiction, later telling Larry King that he took the painkiller 'mostly just to not drink as much as I was.'In 2001 he entered a rehab to recover from his use of Vicodin, methadone, amphetamines, and alcohol.
The star, who looked ashen, puffy and bloated in photos obtained by Daily Mail TV in Beverly Hills on Wednesday, has been battling his demons ever since.
Adult actress Maddy O'Reilly said Perry, a former lover, contacted her two weeks ago asking if she knew anyone who could help him 'purchase some pills'.
When Maddy, 27, asked the actor what kind, he replied: 'Vicaden (sic)/Roxy's/oxys'.
Maddy's contact with Perry came to a halt soon after.
She added: 'We've not spoken since and I'm a little worried, but I don't know him well enough to be able to do anything about it.'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.'Perry's battle with drug addiction has been well documented.
In text messages seen by Daily Mail TV Maddy asked the desperate actor how much he would be willing to pay for the pills, to which he replied: 'It depends which one is available.
The actor said he became an expert at hiding his troubles from co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, Matt Le Blanc and Lisa Kudrow. I was a sick guy.'But the star, who played Chandler Bing for a decade from 1994, admits being one of the most famous faces in America at the time inadvertently aided his recovery.
In the message Perry asked Maddy if she wanted to go for dinner and he gave her his number.'It was a random message and it looked fake, he only had a few hundred followers so it isn't an official account.'I asked him how do I know this is really you and he offered to Face Time but I couldn't right then.
He texted and told me the room we hung out at his house and only he could know that.'After a few text exchanges Maddy says Perry made reservations for them to have dinner at Soho House, a private members' club in West Hollywood, on a Saturday night in early September.
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter talking about his 30-year addiction he said: 'I'm an award-winning alcoholic,' adding, 'Getting sober is a really hard thing to do.'Perry has had more reason to be glum this year.
In April his CBS sitcom The Odd Couple was cancelled after three seasons.
