A porn star has revealed she fears recovering drug addict Matthew Perry has relapsed after the actor pleaded with her to get him ’40/50′ prescription pills.
Adult actress Maddy O’Reilly said Perry, a former lover, contacted her two weeks ago asking if she knew anyone who could help him ‘purchase some pills’.
When Maddy, 27, asked the actor what kind, he replied: ‘Vicaden (sic)/Roxy’s/oxys’.
The Friends star – who is an outspoken addiction recovery advocate after struggling with addictions to alcohol and several prescription drugs during his time on the famous sitcom – was referring to Vicodin, Roxicodone and OxyContin.
All three are powerful and highly addictive opioid prescription painkillers.
In text messages seen by DailyMailTV Maddy asked the desperate actor how much he would be willing to pay for the pills, to which he replied: ‘It depends which one is available. But…a lot.’
Perry’s representatives have not responded to DailyMail.com’s requests for comment.
In an exclusive interview Maddy told DailyMailTV: ‘I was shocked, I knew he is a recovering addict but it was coming out of nowhere, why would he ask me something like that, it’s not like we partied or I have a reputation for partying.
Maddy O’Reilly, 27, believes Friends actor and former lover Matthew Perry has relapsed after the star messaged her asking for ‘pills’

‘I was really looking disappointed, it went from us making dinner plans to Matthew asking me for 40 to 50 pills.
‘I was also a little offended and annoyed, people often assume because of what I do for a living that’s how we are.
‘Then it triggered, he just told me he was going through a detox and now he’s asking for 40/50 pills, it was a red flag and I was worried.
‘I am concerned for Matthew’s well-being, we’re having the same drugs problem back home in North Carolina, I’ve seen it destroy many people’s lives. I would really hate to see something bad happen to him.’
Later in the text conversation Maddy asked Perry whether he was ‘jonesing’ – a slang term for craving something badly, usually associated with chemical dependency.
She added provocatively: ‘Maybe some of this p***y is what you really need.’
Perry, 48, replied: ‘Ha. Not jonesing. But interested :).’
Maddy countered: ‘I’ll make some calls but I’m a porn star not a drug dealer,’ to which polite Perry said: ‘I really was not trying to turn you into one. Just wondering if you knew someone. Really did not mean to offend.’
Maddy says other than occasionally smoking marijuana she has never been into drugs and told Perry she would ask around out of politeness.
‘Once I told him I’m a porn star not a drug dealer, he was like, “I’m sorry if I offended you”.
The adult film actress said Perry messaged her on Instagram and asked Maddy if she wanted to go for dinner and he gave her his number. The actor later canceled on their date and asked for pills instead
Maddy says she first met Perry in 2013 through a mutual friend. She went over to his home where the two watched a movie and then had sex
‘I just wanted to let him know, it’s not like I have a closet full of drugs for when anyone hits me up.’
Maddy, who lives in Hollywood, is a high profile porn actress who has appeared in over 250 adults films and featured on the cover of Penthouse magazine.
She says she first met Perry in 2013 through a mutual friend.
‘He had asked one of my friends about me and wanted know if she could set us up,’ she recalls.
‘I was like of course, he’s super hot, why not. And I went over to his house and ended up having a very nice evening, he’s a very normal, very cool guy.
‘I was really nervous because I’m a huge fan of his and I was taken back by how normal and chill he is, he’s your average guy and we ended up really hitting it off.
‘We watched a movie in his screen room and ended up having sex.’
Maddy says she didn’t suspect Perry was taking drugs while at the star’s Hollywood Hills home.
The three-bed, five bath property, in the exclusive Bird Streets pocket above the Sunset Strip, boasts an infinity pool, screen room and shimmering city views and went on the market in June for $13.5million.
‘He has an amazing house and he’s a great guy but there were no obvious signs he had any kind of opioid addiction, he seemed very normal, sober, we didn’t even have a glass of wine,’ she recalls.
Perry direct messaged Maddy through Instagram this summer asking her out to dinner
O’Reilly says Perry got in touch months later to ask for Vicodin, Roxicodone and OxyContin – highly addictive opioid prescription painkillers
Maddy says she didn’t see Perry after that night and their contact ‘fell off’.
But on August 28 she received a random message on Instagram from the star.
In the message Perry asked Maddy if she wanted to go for dinner and he gave her his number.
‘It was a random message and it looked fake, he only had a few hundred followers so it isn’t an official account.
‘I asked him how do I know this is really you and he offered to FaceTime but I couldn’t right then. He texted and told me the room we hung out at his house and only he could know that.’
After a few text exchanges Maddy says Perry made reservations for them to have dinner at Soho House, a private members’ club in West Hollywood, on a Saturday night in early September.
But hours before the date Perry cancelled saying something had come up with his family.
‘I had had my hair and makeup done so I was a little annoyed, but I thought oh well,’ said Maddy.
‘We were texting back and forth and he kind of went quiet so I thought he had changed his mind.
‘But then I get a text and he was like, “hey I would like to see you, I am dealing with something right now, I have been going through a detox thing so I have a nurse at my house, but if you want to come over and hang out”.
‘I didn’t think anything of it, this is LA, he could have meant juice detox.
‘Then he hit me up again when I was flying home from Northern California from a Halloween celebration, he texted me and said “hey I can see you, I can see you next week.”
Perry has been open about his struggles with addiction. He revealed last year that he has no memory of shooting three seasons of Friends because of his drug use
In 1997 Perry completed a 28-day program for Vicodin addiction. The actor, who plummeted to 145lbs at his lowest, admitted he now struggles to even look at photographs of himself during his substance abuse days
That’s when Perry hit Maddy with his question about getting pills.
Maddy’s contact with Perry came to a halt soon after.
She added: ‘We’ve not spoken since and I’m a little worried, but I don’t know him well enough to be able to do anything about it.
‘Knowing that he’s had a problem in the past, that he mentioned he was going through detox and then he’s asking me for pills, I’m afraid that he has relapsed and his health could be in serious danger.’
Perry’s battle with drug addiction has been well documented.
In 1997 the actor completed a 28-day program for Vicodin addiction, later telling Larry King that he took the painkiller ‘mostly just to not drink as much as I was.’
In 2001 he entered a rehab to recover from his use of Vicodin, methadone, amphetamines, and alcohol.
The star, who looked ashen, puffy and bloated in photos obtained by DailyMailTV in Beverly Hills on Wednesday, has been battling his demons ever since.
In 2013, the year he hooked up with Maddy, Perry opened his heart publicly about the depth of his addiction despair at the height of his Friends fame.
The actor said he became an expert at hiding his troubles from co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Lisa Kudrow.
He told ABC News: ‘Mostly it was drinking, you know, and opiates.
‘I think I was pretty good at hiding it, you know, but, you know, eventually people were aware.’
Perry, who plummeted to 145lbs at his lowest, admitted he now struggles to even look at photographs of himself during his substance abuse days.
He said: ‘I honestly recoil. It’s scary to look at that. I was a sick guy.’
But the star, who played Chandler Bing for a decade from 1994, admits being one of the most famous faces in America at the time inadvertently aided his recovery.
Maddy, who lives in Hollywood, is a high profile porn actress who has appeared in over 250 adults films and featured on the front of Penthouse magazine. She told DailyMail she did not suspect Perry had an addiction
He said: I couldn’t just walk into a bar. Everybody in the bar would go, “You, you can’t do that. I just read that you can’t do that. You can’t. You can’t.”‘
The actor claimed he had managed to turn his life around and was helping others after turning his old beachfront mansion in Malibu, California into a sober living home so men can transition back to the real world.
Explaining his rationale, he said: ‘If you’re thrown from treatment to the outside world, sometimes its too bumpy.’
But in 2015 Perry sold the facility’s luxe Malibu property for $10.65 million with reports suggesting he had abandoned his passion project.
He later said: ‘That was a Malibu beach house and it was too expensive to run and the business didn’t really work.’
In June, the Phoenix House, a California-based treatment center, presented Perry with the 2015 Phoenix Rising Award, although the actor modestly laughed off the honor.
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter talking about his 30-year addiction he said: ‘I’m an award-winning alcoholic,’ adding, ‘Getting sober is a really hard thing to do.’
Perry has had more reason to be glum this year.
In April his CBS sitcom The Odd Couple was cancelled after three seasons.
And the actor learned the hard way about the cancellation
‘My face on the Odd Couple stage door has been painted over with green paint,’ he shared on Twitter on April 10.
‘I think it’s safe to assume that we have been cancelled. #subtle.’
