The two were sitting at a round table talking, and the actor seemed in a good mood. According to the TMZ, he was so involved in the chat, he barely touched his meal. The photos were taken around 2:30 pm West Coast time in the United States (approximately 6:30 pm Brasília time), just over 24 hours before his death.
Athenna said on Instagram that she “had the honor of meeting Matthew in person,” and that he was happy and vibrant in their last chat before he died.
“I’m so devastated by his death, but I felt it was in poor taste to talk about it publicly, as the attention shouldn’t be on me, but on him and his legacy, and he was an extremely private person and I always respected this in our friendship.”
The reporter added that he talked to her “enthusiastically about things that were going on in his life. He was so happy and vibrant,” and that he was pleased with his weight loss and excited about his pickleball practices.
In a video, the reporter also showed the biography of Matthew, Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing signed by him, calling her “number 1”.
On Saturday afternoon (28), Perry returned to his home in Pacific Palisades, California, after playing a two-hour game of pickleball, when he asked his assistant to run an errand. Two hours later, the assistant found him submerged in his jacuzzi and called 911.
