The beloved Beverly Hills 90210 star was rushed to the hospital on Tuesday, February 26. He passed away surrounded by his family on Monday morning.
“It was ultimately a second stroke that killed him,” a devastated insider claimed to Radar. “The first one is the one that you all know about. I don’t know if he ever came out of his medically induced coma.”
The source close to the Riverdale actor told Radar about his alleged fight for life.
“Initially when they brought him in, they thought he was going to make it," the insider alleged. "He was in an induced a coma, but his vitals were good.”
The source continued, “He started to deteriorate immediately after that. He wouldn’t stabilize and things continued to get worse and worse. His blood pressure would not go to normal.”
A rep for Perry denied he was in a medically induced coma, claiming he was sedated.
Perry was surrounded by his children Jack and Sophie, fiancé Wendy Madison Bauer, ex-wife Minnie Sharp, mother Ann Bennett, step-father Steve Bennett, brother Tom Perry, sister Amy Coder and other close family and friends, his rep told Radar.
The source described how they were told of his failing health.
“The doctor started to tell his family that there was not much that they can do and to prepare for the worst, which they did,” the source alleged. “The family thought that there was some sort of life-saving intervention that they could do, so they started bringing in friends, family andloved ones.”
After his tragic death, his rep told Radar “His family appreciates the outpouring of support and prayers that have been extended to Luke from around the world, and respectfully request privacy in this time of great mourning.”
