Matthew Perry’s former partner claims that the Friends star made her buy cocaine and heroin while she was pregnant.
Speaking to The Sun, Kayti Edwards said that the actor asked her to buy him drugs when she was pregnant as no one would suspect a pregnant woman.
“He (would say), ‘No one’s going to pull over a pregnant girl. Don’t worry. He would set it up and say, ‘Ok, go to this address and meet this person, they’re going to come out and hand you a bag.’ I’d drive straight to him,” Edwards claimed.
“There were times I’d be like, ‘How can somebody do this much stuff and not die,’ she said, claiming that Perry was taking “80 Vicodin a day, that’s lethal.”
“You never knew what you were going to get,” she told The Sun.
“I look back and think, ‘What kind of friend was I?’ I wanted to help him. He’d give me this guilt trip like, ‘If you don’t get me this I’m just gonna go there myself and walk downtown.’
“I was like, ‘No, no, no, I’ll just do it for you’ because I didn’t want him in his state of mind to A, be driving, and B, be wandering around the streets… It was kind of weird, our relationship turned toxic. I couldn’t say no.”
Edwards claimed that she would sometimes deliver the substances to the actor while he was on set.
“I remember I would go to Paramount, up to the gate, and I’d say, ‘I’m here to see Matthew’. I would drive through and he would just be in the trailer. I would think, ‘How can you be working right now?’”
Edwards also said that his Friends co-stars and those within his inner circle began to keep their distance from Perry, and that’s when he realized something had to be done.
“They didn’t want anything to do with him, he was kind of on the outs with them, only because they didn’t want to see him like that, it was really hard,” she expressed.
Edwards also claimed that the actor paid her to bring the drugs. “I was making all this money. I just had to drive, pick it up, bring it to him, boom, sometimes three times a day, sometimes I made like $3,000-$4,000 a day. He would always say to me, ‘Money is no object’. I was like, ‘Oh my God.’”
She also said that the actor once “wandered into the neighbor’s pool naked and was swimming” as he was high on drugs.
Perry, who is now engaged to Molly Hurwitz and has been open about his addiction, said to People in 2013: “I couldn’t stop. Eventually things got so bad that I couldn’t hide it, and then everybody knew.”
“I’ve had a lot of ups and downs in my life. I learned a lot from my failures,” He told the Hollywood Reporter in 2015.
“But the best thing about me is that if an alcoholic comes up to me and says, ‘Will you help me stop drinking?’ I will say, “Yes, I know how to do that.’”
