All About Matthew Perry's Relationship with His Stepfather, Keith Morrison!

Matthew Perry shared a close bond with his stepfather Keith Morrison. The late Friends actor was the only son of John Bennett Perry and Suzanne Morrison. However, after their divorce, both parents remarried and had more children with their new partners. Suzanne married Keith in 1981, while John married Debbie the same year.

Both Perry and his stepfather Morrison often spoke about their special relationship. In his memoir, Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing, Perry mentioned how he gave his mother away at her wedding to Keith. Despite occasionally feeling like an outsider as his parents had more children, Perry described Keith as a "lovely" man who cared deeply for his mother.

Morrison also had nothing but praise for Perry, describing him as bright and remarkable from a young age. He always believed Perry was meant to be famous, albeit not as an actor. It was during a time when Perry was doubting his acting career that he landed his iconic role as Chandler Bing on Friends. Morrison believed the character suited Perry's sense of humor perfectly and was a true reflection of his talent and personality.

Perry lived with his mom and Keith until he was 15 years old, but he struggled with the move to Toronto and feeling like he didn't belong to the new family dynamic.

At 15, he made the decision to move to Los Angeles to spend time with his father. Throughout his life, his parents, including Keith and Suzanne, provided unwavering support, especially during his health scare in 2018 when his colon ruptured.

The close relationship between Perry and Keith Morrison was a testament to the love and connection they shared as a blended family. Despite the challenges and ups and downs, they remained bonded until Perry's untimely death. The family expressed their heartbreak over losing Perry and appreciated the outpouring of love from his fans.
