Brancato, taking to Instagram, unleashed a cascade of photographic memories spanning across the years she spent alongside Perry.

With a heavy heart, Brancato expressed her intention to celebrate Perry's memory, stating, "My heart is burdened, but it is through cherishing our shared memories that I find the strength to honour his legacy.

Mattman, wherever you are, I hope you’re sending us signs – we so desperately need them." Concluding her poignant message, she added, "You have etched a permanent place in my heart. I love you, Matty." Perry's death under mysterious circumstances has left his global fanbase in a state of shock and mourning.

Law enforcement sources have confirmed that no signs of foul play were detected at the scene, and no illegal substances were found on the property. Perry, who had publicly battled with addiction issues, delved into his struggles in his autobiography, "Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing: A Memoir," leaving a lasting legacy of resilience and candidness about his life’s challenges.
