“Friends” funny man Joey Tribbiani aka Matt LeBlanc has been making the headlines lately for more than one reason. The actor who starred in hit sitcom “Friends” from 1994 to 2004 has recently been linked to co-star Jennifer Aniston. Reports suggest that he had an affair with her when she was married to Brad Pitt. Surprisingly, the actor’s father has also let in on some more secrets about him.
According to Sydney Morning Herald, Matt LeBlanc has not spoken to his father for the last three years and his father too mentioned that he has given up on his son. The rift between the father-son duo was caused because of money along with his father believing that money has changed his son a lot. However, the actor’s father maintains that he is proud of his son for what he has achieved but also believes that the more money he earns, the more ruthless he gets. He has also called his son as someone who does not have compassion and has always been a wild and reckless person.
On his personal side, Matt’s father revealed that Matt did have real feelings for his “Friends” co-star and was really into her that ultimately resulted in a relationship. All of this happened at the time when Jennifer was married to Brad Pitt. Some might wonder as to how does his father know all of this. He states that Matt himself told him about this.
On Matt and Jennifer’s side, their representatives have denied the allegations stating that there was nothing going on between the two. Matt had once revealed the reason he and his father don’t talk anymore because his father used to sell stories to tabloids and as of now, they don’t really speak anymore. Matt LeBlanc has currently been shooting for “Episodes”, a comedic melodrama where he plays a fictionalized version of himself. Whatever occurred between Matt and his father is certainly unfortunate; we can all hope things turn out for better for both of them.
