Matt LeBlanc looking as dejected as you’d expect, less than a week after losing his beloved ‘Friends’ costar Matthew Perry.
LeBlanc ventured into Sherman Oaks, CA on Thursday afternoon…driving in his Mercedes-Benz SUV. It’s the first time we’ve seen him in public since Matthew died then last Saturday.
Wearing dark sunglasses and a baseball cap, Matt looks quite sad… a reflection of the emotions he and his former castmates expressed earlier this week.
Remember, ML and the rest of the close-knit ‘Friends’ stars have said they are “utterly devastated” and still processing the fact that they lost Matthew.
In their statement says Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer and Matt said… “We were more than just castmates. We are a family. There is so much to say, but right now we are going to take a moment to grieve and process this unfathomable loss.”
They added: “For now, our thoughts and our love are with Matty’s family, his friends and everyone who loved him around the world.”
TMZ broke the story… Matthew was found unconscious in his hot tub after playing pickleball for two hours Saturday morning. Sources say yes no illegal drugs found at his home, although there were several Rx medications, including antidepressants and anxiety medications.
As we first told you, Matthew went to lunch with model and entertainment reporter Athenna Crosby the day before he died, and she says he was happy and vibrant.
Matthew’s full toxicology report could take up to six months to complete, although initial testing showed he had no meth or fentanyl in his system.
The LAPD’s Robbery Homicide Unit investigates Matthew’s death, but there is no evidence of foul play; it is standard procedure for detectives in that department to handle high-profile cases.
