Perry dated a number of high-profile women throughout his illustrious career, including Lizzy Caplan and Gwyneth Paltrow.
But after his engagement to literary manager Molly Hurwitz ended in 2021, he longed for a wife and a family, according to DailyMail.com.
Insiders close to Perry said he longed for a meaningful relationship and stepchildren thanks to his closeness with his own stepfather, Keith Morrison.
“Matthew has always dreamed of having the perfect family,” a source close to the star told DailyMail.com. “He wanted a wife and at least a few children.” And he said he wouldn’t even mind marrying a woman who already had children.’
“Lately the star has been looking for love again.” But after a series of failed relationships, he felt sad and depressed and as if he would never find the love he longed for.
“Matthew dated dozens of women. But in the end, he always felt like they were only interested in his money and fame. And he was extremely generous.
“He showered women with gifts just to get them to pack up their goodies and walk away.”
“Ultimately, I believe his years of battling demons… drugs and alcohol… took a toll on him and his health, and he would end up alone again.”
