Matt LeBlanc pays heartbreaking tribute to best friend Matthew Perry

‘And I guess you’re keeping the 20 bucks you owe me’

Two weeks on from the tragic death of Matthew Perry, his best friend Matt LeBlanc has shared a heartbreaking tribute online.

Perry died suddenly at his apartment in Los Angeles aged just 54.

Best known for his role as the tragicomedy legend, Chandler Bing on Friends, Perry was found dead in the hot tub of his home on October 28.

He was laid to rest the following week in a small service which was attended to by relatives and cast mates before being buried at Forest Lawn Memorial Park.

Now, Matt LeBlanc, who of course played Perry’s on screen best friend, Joey Tribbiani has paid tribute on Instagram.

Taking to Instagram just moments ago (November 14), LeBlanc wrote: “Matthew. It is with a heavy heart I say goodbye.

“The times we had together are honestly among the favorite times of my life.

“It was an honor to share the stage with you and to call you my friend.

“I will always smile when I think of you and I’ll never forget you. Never.

“Spread your wings and fly brother you’re finally free. Much love.

“And I guess you’re keeping the 20 bucks you owe me.”

Truly heartbreaking.
