Matthew Perry's teenage neighbor says he 'saw everything' at the scene of the actor's tragic death

Friends star Matthew Perry's 17-year-old neighbor saw the moment police arrived

Matthew Perry's teenage neighbour who 'saw everything' at the scene has spoken out.

Perry was tragically found dead at his home in Los Angeles yesterday, October 28, and was in a hot tub at the time police arrived.

In the late 54-year-old's final post to Instagram shared in the days running up to his death, Perry was seen relaxing in what looked to be the same hot tub at his house that he later died in.

Police said there was no signs of foul play.

Emergency services swarmed to the property in light of the Friends actor's death - something which Perry's 17-year-old neighbor saw for himself.

The teenager, whose name wasn't shared, told The US Sun that he was just leaving his house nearby to go see a friend when he spotted an ambulance by Perry's home.

"They were outside my neighbor’s door," he said.

"I didn’t think much of it at the time until police started arriving and everything. They didn’t hammer the door, they kept silent."

The 17-year-old continued: "It was very disturbing, and very sad after all those years... from what he’s gone through and his addictions and whatever.

"I saw everything, I feel bad for my younger siblings."

Perry's young neighbor said his passing is 'very sad'.

Apparently the star hadn't lived in the neighborhood for long.

He'd spoken to Perry on a couple of occasions since he'd moved nearby, and hailed him as 'very friendly' and a 'nice, genuine guy'.

The teen also shared his condolences to Perry's friends and family.

Tributes have been rolling in for the actor in the wake of his ultimately death from both celebrities and Friends fans.

Fellow actor Selma Blair had a close friendship with Perry and was understandably devastated by the news.

Selma Blair said she loved the actor 'unconditionally'.

Sharing a snap of them together, Blair said: "All of us loved Matthew Perry, and I did especially. Every day. I loved him unconditionally. And he me. And I’m broken. Broken hearted. Sweet dreams Matty. Sweet dreams."

Blair had a brief cameo on Friends as Chandler Bing's colleague.

Another star from the well-loved 90s sitcom, Maggie Wheeler, who starred as Perry's on-screen love interest Janice, said on social media: "What a loss. The world will miss you Matthew Perry. The joy you brought to so many in your too short lifetime will live on. I feel so very blessed by every creative moment we shared."

Meanwhile, Morgan Fairchild (who played Perry's on-screen mom, Nora Bing, on Friends) said she was 'heartbroken' to learn of his death.
