Wow! Just shocking. Wonder if he had a heart attack.

LINK-TMZ

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.

We're told there is no foul play involved


Dude had his struggles., but 54 is still too young. Very sad.

So shocking and awful.

They apparently found him drowned in his Jacuzzi.

He has struggled for much of his life.

So sad.

My guilty pleasure is watching Friends reruns on Nick at Nite every night. I never get tired of them. And they are an escape from all the terrible news in the world. RIP.

I read cardiac arrest but not sure how accurate that is.

Holy crap! RIP.

Friends and Seinfeld were pretty much the 90s for me!

*edit* Man, just saw the clip of his interview with Diane Sawyer. I had no idea he was in such a bad place.

I read on another board his family found out via TMZ and I admit if so that's surprising as they tend to do this to the non-white celebs.

I am surprised and not surprised.

Surprised because I didn't expect to read this tonight and not surprised because well his issues were well documented unfortunately.

I hope he finally found peace.

This one really hurts, for me. Chandler was my favorite Friends character, and that's saying something because I absolutely loved that show and that cast. Yes, his issues are well-documented, and he even infamously said that he didn't remember entire seasons of shooting the show. Yet when the light went on, his work was phenomenal. I found the love story between Monica and Chandler to be the heart of the show. He was an exceptionally talented man and his work will live on forever, of course, as Friends is one of the most popular shows on re-runs. Rest well, Mr. Perry.

Hindsight is 20/20 but perhaps that memoir he wrote will help others in the future.

Robert A. Heinlein wrote that ultimately, every death is a cardiac arrest, and to be suspicious when that is the only cause.

How far out is "family"? Parent, 2nd cousin by marriage?

From TMZ:

Later that afternoon, his assistant returned to his house after running errands and discovered Perry was unresponsive. The assistant called 911, Perry's mother and one of his siblings, as well as another person.

Parents, siblings, nieces/nephews and his stepfather Keith Morrison of Dateline.

Well that’s some solace they knew before we did. Eddie Van Galen’s son mentioned that he wasn’t so lucky

That sucks. Another reason to avoid TMZ.

TMZ did nothing wrong. The claim that Basketball Fan posted was false. This a perfect example of why one shouldn’t fire of on something they read on a message board as fact. For all its tabloid news, TMZ actually engages in some important news. It was TMZ that broke the news that Seal Team 6 had killed Bin Laden.

And I can guarantee you Osama’s family didn’t find out from tmz.

Nodded out in the water? What happened to Whitney and Delores O'Riordan (Cranberries). I suspected that, but those ladies were petite and died in the bathtub. Jacuzzi makes sense for a male victim of misadventure.
