Matt LeBlanc who’s known for his famous character Joey Tribbiani from FRIENDS has won our hearts with his amazing performance in the sitcom. Now that the cast of the sitcom including Matt LeBranc, Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, and Matthew Perry are reuniting, we all are super excited. Although, Paul LeBlanc, Matt’s father shared some unhappy details.
Matt’s father revealed that his relationship with his son turned sour when he denied giving him a motorbike. This turned out into a bitter fallout between the father-son duo. It also led to Paul having to move out of his beloved home.
Paul was quoted by a publication, “I’ve been living without any contact for nine years and it is still hard to believe what has happened.” He continued, “I’ve been cut off and locked out of my house over a humiliating argument about money and a motorbike.”
“I’m an old man now and I live off social security. If it wasn’t for my savings, I wouldn’t be able to survive.” Talking about the FRIENDS actor, he said, “But I never hear from Matt and he’s only sent me one birthday card in my entire life. I’ve sent him text messages including one this year asking if we can get back in touch, but he has totally ignored me”, Paul LeBlanc added.
He continued, “It’s humiliating. But the truth is Matt has always been a mother’s boy and there have been so many fallings out. We are all getting older.” He added that his message to Matt LeBlanc is, “You need to get your act together before it is too late. You’re going to miss me when I’m gone.’”
“I only have one TV channel so I won’t be watching the reunion. I can’t figure out what all the fuss is. I’ve always thought Friends was a silly show for young people,” he said talking about watching the reunion special of FRIENDS.
Paul also said, “The problem is that when someone has money, you don’t get into their lifestyle unless they want you there, and they can shut you down. Matt is erratic with me and he has a short temper. One minute he is nice, the next he is cutting your throat — not literally obviously.”
That was a good time, but Matt is obsessed with acting. The last time he came out to see me was in 2011.” The star’s dad said, “I don’t understand it. I’ve spent the last nine years thinking about it and I still find it unbelievable. He just cut me off.”
After Paul’s claims, a spokeswoman for Matt LeBlanc told the same publication, “To put this in perspective, Matt’s father abandoned Matt and his mother when he was an infant.’
