Matthew Perry fans convinced he's dating ex Molly Hurwitz lookalike assistant after cute pic together
MATTHEW Perry annoucned his split from fiancée Molly Hurwtiz this week – saying their relationship "just didn't work out".
But his curious fans are already convinced the Friends star is dating again – as he posed with his assistant in a cute Instagram snap together.
Matthew, 51, and literary manager ex Molly, 29, began dating in 2018 and got engaged in November 2020 – but called things off this week.
Molly put their wedding on hold after he "flirted with other women" while they were on a break, with Matthew later confirming the split.
While it may only have been a matter of days, his social media fans are sure he's already dating another woman – who looks just like his ex.
Taking to Instagram, Matthew posted a cute snap of him and his assistant getting close on a sofa as they advertised his range of hoodies.
He tagged personal assistant Briana Brancato in the snap, which saw the pair smiling towards the camera as they sat side by side.
Briana, who manages Perry's day-to-day schedule, also posted the a picture, where the actor leans in towards her, putting his head close to hers.
Fans were quick to speculate that the pair may be an item, especially due to Briana's likeness to ex Molly, as well as their close relationship.
"Maybe its just a coincidence when his engagement is called off and he posts with another girl 'friend'," one woman kicked off the discussion.
"What, you have a girlfriend?" another asked, while a third commented that they made a "handsome couple" under Matthew's snap.
"You're punching there aren't you?" said a fourth, implying that the pair were dating, as a fifth asked: "That's his girlfriend?"
Others were a little more confused about the relationship between the pair, wondering "is that his daughter?" in the comments.
"Is that his lover or his daughter?" another said due to the close nature in which the pair were sitting together.
Despite the speculation, both the Friends star and his assistant firmly said they worked together in their captions, with Briana referring to Matthew as "her boss".
While Matthew noted that "his team" were ready for a relaxing weekend after the recent Friends reunion.
Matthew confirmed his recent split from Molly Hurwitz to PEOPLE, sharing in a statement: "Sometimes things just don't work out and this is one of them."
It came after a 20-year-old recently exposed the actor for flirting with her after they matched on Raya when she was just 19 years old and he was 50.
After his dating app scandal, a source revealed to OK! magazine that Molly wanted to "take a breather".
The news of their split comes less than a week after fans expressed their concern for Matthew when he appeared to slur his words and nodded off while filming the reunion special.
He sat down with the beloved cast of Friends for a "three question" interview with People on Wednesday, which had the group reminisce about their years as friends and co-stars.
However, fans noticed that the Canadian actor was not responding to questions with his normal sharp wit and appeared quiet and distracted.
Several fans took to the comments section to express their concern over Matthew, who has struggled with addiction since his time on the award-winning show.
"Seeing Matthew sad is heartbreaking," one wrote, adding: "I hope he gets better soon, I don't know how I'm going to enjoy the reunion when Matthew is this sad."
"This felt so good seeing but also broke my heart seeing Matthew Perry like this," another admitted.
Despite speculation, The Sun exclusively revealed that Matthew's slurred speech was due to emergency dental work and not a drugs relapse.
