Disheveled Matthew Perry Sparks Concern After L.A. Coffee Outing
Matthew Perry has made his way back into the headlines because of his appearance.
The Friends star looked unrecognizable over the weekend while going for a coffee run in Los Angeles. Looking worse for wear, a disheveled Perry was seen leaving a local Starbucks with a venti caramel frappuccino in his hand, according to Radar.
Perry — who was able to slip into the coffee chain without being noticed, per the publication — donned an oversized gray t-shirt, black sweats and white shoes without laces. Apart from his baggy ensemble, Perry's hair was a mess with him apparently looking as if he just rolled out of bed.

His latest sighting was a vast contrast to when he was last seen in April looking healthy and trim while with a mystery woman.
Perry, who has long battled addictions to alcohol and prescription painkillers, first sparked fan concern last year when he joined his Friends costars on their old stage for the beloved series' HBO special.
"It was obvious to everyone that something was wrong. Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc all knew it and worked as a team to get him through it,” a source spilled to OK! at the time of his appearance and behavior. "It was almost cruel to watch him sitting next to them."

And while his alarming appearance led many to fear he relapsed, a source maintained his slurred speech was the result of an emergency dental procedure he had hours before filming the special "that was said to impact his wellbeing and also how he was feeling."

Meanwhile, Perry didn't take to the comments on his appearance lightly, as an insider spilled: "The things people were saying about how terrible he looked really hurt him."
All in all, it's safe to assume Perry will get to share his truth on his life in the spotlight in his upcoming memoir, Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing, which is set to come out later this year — and has his costars shaking in their boots. "The word is he’s going to unload on the whole crew, which has everyone in a panic," said a source, as OK! reported.
The actor "figures it’s time to come clean not just about his own life, but also about the good, the bad and the ugly things that happened on the Friends set,” the source added.
And if that upsets his former company? "He really couldn’t care less," scoffed the insider. "He’s not going to hold back."
