Matthew Perry’s former lover is blowing the lid off the troubled actor’s issues with drugs, including what she claims was his nearly 80-pill-a-day Vicodin habit.
Kayti Edwards revealed in a shocking new video that she first met Perry about 11 years ago when he showed up to audition for a Broadway play her grandfather was producing.
“My relationship with Matthew turned intimate about three years after meeting him,” said Edwards of their off-on six-month fling.
The two then ran into each other again years later at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting.
“I asked him if he remembered who I was,” she recalled. “He gave his condolences because my grandfather had recently passed, and that’s how we started talking.”
According to Edwards, Perry told her about his “Vicodin problem” and that he was popping “up to 80 pills a day.”
While Edwards knew about Perry’s pill problem, she said she had never known him to battle issues with crack, heroin or other drugs.
The pair's relationship took a turn when he messaged her on Facebook in February 2011.
“He wanted me to come over because he really needed to talk to me,” she said of the “really awkward” exchange with the former Friends star. “He told me that he wanted to get high and he wanted to get all of these different drugs.”
“I only knew him as having an 80-a-day Vicodin habit, and now he’s wanting cocaine, and crack and OxyContin,” she continued. “He definitely was on a roll for about three months.”
Edwards explained she went over to Perry’s house and “he wanted to smoke heroin” for the first time, so the two went into the actor’s kitchen, where he “lit the tinfoil.”
“Smoke was going everywhere but his mouth, and he was wasting it all,” she recalled of Perry, who became angrier and angrier “because he felt he wasn’t doing it right.”
“I didn’t know how to help him, so it was just madness,” added Edwards, who sat for her shocking tell-all interview with In Touch.
In May 2011, just months after the disturbing incident, Perry did his third stint in rehab.
“I couldn't stop. Eventually, things got so bad that I couldn't hide it, and everybody knew," he said two years later. "You can't have a drug problem for 30 years and then expect to have it be solved in 28 days. Getting sober is really a hard thing to do."
