Matthew Perry has been hitting the headlines quite a lot since the HBO Max Friends reunion – mainly because fans were concerned about his slurred speech which they believed might have been his history with addiction repeating itself.

(Spoiler alert: it wasn’t, insiders insisted that he just had painful dental surgery right before the reunion was filmed.)

However, the Chandler Bing actor is in the news once again this week; this time because it’s just been reported that he has called off his engagement to Molly Hurwitz.

The 51-year-old Friends actor was keen to address the speculation, and issued a short and sweet statement…

“Sometimes things just don’t work out, and this is one of them,” Matthew Perry told People.

“I wish Molly the best.”

Matthew Perry and the 29-year-old literary manager got engaged seven months ago, which he confirmed with another brief statement…

“I decided to get engaged,” the actor said at the time.

“Luckily, I happened to be dating the greatest woman on the face of the planet at this time.”

The pair reportedly started dating in 2018, and were first spotted together a year later at a restaurant in West Hollywood.

We wish Matthew and Molly the best, and hope it was an amicable break up!
