Matthew Perry has called off his engagement to literary manager Molly Hurwitz months after proposing.

The short lived engagement has come to an abrupt end after the Friends star admitted “sometimes things just don’t work out”.

The 51-year-old popped the question to his now ex-fiancee, 29, in November last year but now it appears the pair will go their separate ways.

In a statement released to People, the Friends star said: “Sometimes things just don’t work out and this is one of them, I wish Molly the best.”

The pair began dating in 2018 before moving their relationship to the next level last year.

At the time, the actor told People: “I decided to get engaged. Luckily, I happened to be dating the greatest woman on the face of the planet at this time.”

The break-up follows reports that Matthew had been active on a dating app.

The actor, who played Chandler Bing in the iconic sitcom Friends, was outed for using the dating app Raya and allegedly had a flirty exchange with a 19-year-old girl in which he asked: “Am I as old as your dad?”
