Matthew Perry's former fiancée has issued a statement in light of the actor's death.

The 54-year-old was found at his home in Los Angeles, and was later confirmed dead.

His cause of death is yet to be determined, however - with Los Angeles County Medical Examiner having recently requested further investigations.

The initial post-mortem came back inconclusive.

Following his untimely passing, tributes from far and wide have been rolling in for Perry as people noted his acting accolades, as well as his contribution towards helping others struggling with addiction.

Now his former wife-to-be Molly Hurwitz has issued a statement as she reflected on her relationship with Perry.

The 32-year-old started dating Perry in 2018, with the actor going on to pop the question two years later.

But the pair never made it down the aisle, and called time on their romance in 2021.

Sharing a photograph on Instagram of a silhouette of Perry looking out a beautiful, snowy view, Hurwitz penned: "He would love that the world is talking about how talented he was. And he really was very talented.

"As the Friends reunion was approaching, we rewatched the show together. 'F**k, I was so good!!!…See what I did there???' We rewound and studied scenes.

"Our respect and appreciation of humor is something that connected us. Being with him as he rediscovered his brilliance was magical."

Going on to note their romance, Hurwitz continued: "But, I obviously knew that man in a very different way, too. While I loved him deeper than I could comprehend, he was complicated, and he caused pain like I’d never known.

"No one in my adult life has had a more profound impact on me than Matthew Langford Perry. I have tremendous gratitude for that, for everything I learned from our relationship.

"I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention Al Anon [Alcoholics Anonymous], an invaluable resource for those who love someone struggling with this destructive disease."

She concluded the statement with: "Matty, I feel relief that you are at peace."

Comments for the post have been switched off.

It looks as if Hurtwitz and Perry shared their pooch Alfred together - whom his Friends co-star Lisa Kudrow was reportedly looking to adopt following his death.

But it appears as if the adorable dog has a loving home with Hurwitz, who gushed about Alfred in a sweet post when he turned three years old last month.
