Friends fans worried for star’s wellbeing after cryptic message about therapyFebruary 8, 2019
It’s been a rough few months for American actor Matthew Perry.
The 49-year-old was recently revealed to have been hospitalised for three months following a major operation on his stomach to repair a hole.
Fans were quick to share their concern over his health, and now they’re worried about the former Friends star once again after he shared a cryptic social media post about therapy.
On Wednesday, Perry informed his 1.26 million followers on Twitter that he had been ‘kicked out’ of a therapy session.
The post went viral, with over 2,000 retweets and over 22,000 likes.
Many began flooding his notifications with supportive messages, sharing their hopes and worries for his wellbeing.
One fan wrote: "I don’t know what is going on, but I hope you are alright and have people to support you."
Another responded: "Please feel better. I hope you’re ok. You deserve love and happiness. You made me laugh when I was having rough times and always got me through it. You’re a brilliant, talented man and some day I believe you’ll see light in life."
A third said: "Remember, you are a strong person with lots of family, friends and fans that are here for you! Stay strong."
This isn’t the first time, Perry has sought therapeutic help.
The actor has been open in the past about struggling with an addiction to prescription painkillers and a battle with alcohol abuse.
He is believed to have turned to substance abuse following a jet ski accident in 1997, telling People magazine in 2013: "I did and I felt better than I ever felt in my entire life.
"I had a big problem with pills and alcohol, and I couldn’t stop."
He never drank on the set of Friends, but his co-stars soon realised he had a problem, which worsened as time went on.
But in 2001, he had a moment of clarity and checked into rehab in LA.
Since then the star has been sober and has become something of a symbol for addiction rehabilitation.
