TMZ reports Perry’s assistant called 911 upon finding him in the hot tub after returning from running a brief errand for Perry. It could take weeks to determine his cause of death.

Police have said there is no suspicion of foul play nor were any illegal drugs found at Perry’s home. Perry went to rehab multiple times over the years and spent five months in the hospital in 2018 after his colon burst as a result of his drug use.
