Matthew Perry Lived in Secret LA Rental for Year With Assistant Prior to Death

Prior to his death last month, Matthew Perry allegedly spent some time living in a secret Beverly Hills home that he rented with his assistant, Kenny Iwamasa.

According to Daily Mail, Perry rented the home for $49,000 per month for over a year while his home in the Pacific Palisades was being renovated. He stayed in the rental with his assistant, Iwamasa, before returning to his primary residence once the renovations were completed.

Perry had just moved back into his Pacific Palisades home a few weeks prior to his death. It is believed that Iwamasa was the person who found Perry’s body in his hot tub. The two had known each other for more than 25 years as Iwamasa had helped handle his affairs for decades.

Matthew Perry’s Death Certificate Released

On November 8th, Matthew Perry’s death certificate was finally released. The cause of death is still “deferred.” This is due to the fact that the initial autopsy results were ruled inconclusive and are pending a toxicology report.

The death certificate states no other significant conditions contributed to Perry’s sudden death. The document notes that Perry’s date of death was October 28th at 4:17 PM. He was found at his residence, which is located in the Pacific Palisades just outside of Los Angeles.

A spokesperson for the fire department told E! News that an adult male was discovered unconscious in a stand-alone hot tub after they responded to an emergency call.

“A bystander had brought the man’s head above the water and gotten him to the edge,” LAFD Captain Erik Scott stated. “Then firefighters removed him from the water upon their arrival. A rapid medical assessment, sadly, revealed the man was deceased prior to first responder arrival.”

The Matthew Perry Foundation” has been established in his honor. According to the foundation’s website, the organization was founded on the “realization of Matthew’s enduring commitment to helping others struggling with the disease of addiction.”
