“Law enforcement sources tell us the actor was found Saturday at an L.A.-area home … where we’re told he appears to have drowned. Our sources say first-responders rushed over on a call for cardiac arrest. It’s unclear where exactly on the grounds this happened,” TMZ said.

No drugs were reportedly found at the scene.

TMZ also claimed that there wasn’t any foul play and that Perry had gone home that day after playing pickleball for two hours.

Perry was a fan favorite from the hit sitcom “Friends” and has admittedly struggled with drug and alcohol addiction during filming. He opened up about this experience in his memoir “Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing” which was published in November last year.

May he rest in peace.
