After Perry‘s sudden death recently, fans have been wondering how LeBlanc must be feeling about the loss. Less than a week after Perry’s death, LeBlanc was spotted on Thursday afternoon in in Los Angeles, California, according to a report by TMZ. Driving his SUV, it was LeBlac’s first public appearance since the death of Perry.

Earlier, LeBlanc and the Friends cast including Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow and David Schwimmer, had shared a joint statement with ABC News, highlighting their deep disappointment and grief upon Perry’s sudden death.
“We are all so utterly devastated by the loss of Matthew. We were more than just cast mates. We are a family. There is so much to say, but right now we’re going to take a moment to grieve and process this unfathomable loss,” the statement read.
“In time we will say more, as and when we are able. For now, our thoughts and our love are with Matty’s family, his friends, and everyone who loved him around the world,” the statement read further.
On Saturday, October 28, Perry was found dead inside his home in what has been claimed to be a drowning incident. Meanwhile, investigations are on to ascertain if any unwanted substance was there in the body of Perry.
