Matthew Perry won over the country with his portrayal of "Chandler Bing" on the hit series Friends, but back then, off-screen, the actor was struggling. He spent years battling drug and alcohol addiction and in 1997 went to rehab. However, even though he overcame the addiction, his body is reeling from the effects of all the substance abuse and he was recently diagnosed with acute pancreatitis. In August, Perry had surgery to repair a gastrointestinal perforation, a life-threatening hole that forms in the stomach or intestine. He's since been keeping fans up to date, revealing that he spent three months in a hospital bed. Eventually, Matthew was able to go home, but a recent tweet has fans extremely concerned for him.
The mysterious message, his first tweet in a month, says, "I got kicked out of therapy today."
Immediately, Perry was flooded with thousands of comments from concerned fans:
When Matthew noticed the response he was getting, he followed-up with a tweet that shed a little more light on what he was going through, writing, "Easy guys, it was just one session. I’m back in therapy where I belong:)."
Hopefully Perry is getting better every day. Stay up to date with him here.
