In 2018, he started seeing the talent manager. “Molly is a fun and quirky girl. She’s not a hard partier and has been a good influence on him,” a source told In Touch in January.
Unfortunately, his personal troubles and questions about his sobriety came between them. “It just wasn’t working anymore,” a separate source said in May. “You have to hand it to her for hanging in there so long, but you can only help someone so much. … At the end of the day, only Matt can help himself. He is in a really dark place and pals fear he may have relapsed.”
Though they rekindled their romance, they ultimately called it quits in June 2021. In the aftermath of his untimely death, Molly took to social media to remember her ex, saying that she felt “relief” that he was “at peace.”
“He would love that the world is talking about how talented he was,” Molly wrote two days after Matthew’s death. “And he really was very talented. As the Friends reunion was approaching [in 2021], 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.”
In addition, she recalled the private experiences between them and the struggles they faced as a couple. “While I loved him deeper than I could comprehend, he was complicated, and he caused pain like I’d never known,” Molly recalled. “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.”
She concluded her message by encouraging people to utilize Al Anon, an anonymous support resource and community for those whose loved ones are struggling with addiction.
