Matthew Perry breaks up with girlfriend Molly Hurwitz after 'secretly dating' for two years
Matthew Perry has reportedly broken up with his talent manager girlfriend Molly Hurwitz after being in a secret relationship with her for the past two years.
The 50-year-old former 'Friends' star and his 29-year-old girlfriend called it the quits according to reports on Friday, May 1. A source revealed, "It happened very recently. It was very amicable, but they have both decided to go their separate ways," In Touch Weekly reports.
The news comes as Perry was spotted looking very disheveled and unkempt on Wednesday, April 29. Their relationship comes as a shock to many as it was believed that Perry had been single for many years now. However, in December last year, The Sun had revealed that the two had been 'secretly dating' for months.
Hurwitz who works at Zero Gravity Management had also spent "Christmas at his swanky LA penthouse", reports revealed. The LA penthouse is believed to be worth an estimated $35million. An insider shared, "Molly has been seeing Matthew for months, they mix in the same circles and she’s originally from New York where they have spent time together."
In November last year, Perry was seen leaving Dan Tana's restaurant in West Hollywood with a mystery woman who bore a striking resemblance to Hurwitz. In February this year, Hurwitz had referred to her relationship with Perry on her Instagram handle where she shared a sweet tribute.
She had captioned the post, "Second year being my valentine, but his first as an Instagram influencer. HVD to my favorite," People magazine revealed. Perry had hopped aboard the Instagram wagon on February 7 when he started his official account.
Perry has had a very public battle and struggles with substance abuse ever since he became famous in the 1990s. It was believed that Perry had remained single ever since he broke up with his girlfriend of six years Lizzy Caplan in 2012.
We had earlier reported that Perry was recently spotted out in LA amid the coronavirus lockdown. He was barely recognizable in the paparazzi pictures obtained by the Sun. He sported gray hair and an unkempt stubble and was seen wearing an untucked black T-shirt, baggy checked blue shirt, loose black sweatpants, and green Converse sneakers during the outing.
It also looked like Perry had gained a lot of weight. It is believed that Perry is in quarantine with his sober friends and a team who is committed to keeping him from relapsing into his alcohol and drug problems.
A source had earlier spoken to US Weekly and shared that Perry had always hoped to become more than friends with his co-actor and on-screen wife Courteney Cox who plays the role of Monica Geller. An insider revealed, "Matthew’s always been in love with her. Matthew has never fully been able to get over her."
Over the last couple of years, Perry has been romantically linked to many high profile stars such as Yasmine Bleeth and Julia Roberts in the mid-‘90s and Caplan whom he dated for six years between 2006 and 2012. It was also believed that Perry was linked to his 'Odd Couple' costar Lauren Graham in 2003.
