Matthew Perry and his fiancée, Molly Hurwitz, have split after almost three years of dating.
“Sometimes things just don't work out and this is one of them,” Perry said in a statement to People. “I wish Molly the best.”
The 51-year-old Friends actor began dating the 29-year-old literary manager in 2018 and the couple got engaged last November. At the time, Perry gushed Hurwitz was “the greatest woman on the face of the planet.”
While a source previously told US that Hurwitz secretly loved the attention she got from dating Perry, she was also a positive influence on his life. Perry’s inner circle, including his pal Courteney Cox, had hoped he and Hurwitz would “go the distance.”
“She brought him to a place where he’s positive and confident,” the source told the outlet. “Nobody can remember seeing him this happy. He’s got a spring in his step that wasn’t there before.”
News of the split comes after Perry’s bizarre behavior during his troubling reunion with former co-stars Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc for their new Friends special on HBO Max.
“The cast knows there is something going on with Matthew. What we got to see on TV was Matthew at his best,” sources have told RadarOnline.com, calling the actor’s troubling appearance just “the tip of the iceberg.”
“We didn’t get to see all the edited footage and him backstage before and after the camera’s were rolling,” the sources said. “It wasn’t pretty.”
