KELLY Clarkson fans have theorized that one of Matthew Perry’s family members will be cut out of her talk show.
Keith Morrison, Matthew‘s stepfather, will be a special guest on the US daytime TV talk show on Tuesday, October 31.

His staffer made a frantic 911 call and referred to a drowning in the 15-second dispatch audio clip.
Cops confirmed the death was being investigated but no foul play is suspected.
Over the years, the famous actor had been candid about his struggles with drink and drugs, and health problems.
No narcotics were discovered at the scene, but authorities found anti-depressants, anti-anxiety drugs, and a drug for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
On the morning of his death, Matthew had played racquet sport pickleball with a female friend, who revealed the star had felt unwell and “fatigued” for the past week.
FAMILY SPEAKS OUT
On October 20, Matthew’s family broke their silence following the death of the TV star.
In a heartbreaking statement shared to People, the late actor’s family members wrote: “We are heartbroken by the tragic loss of our beloved son and brother.
“Matthew brought so much joy to the world, both as an actor and a friend.”
They closed with: “You all meant so much to him and we appreciate the tremendous outpouring of love.”
On Monday, Matthew’s ex-fiance, Molly Hurwitz shared a statement on her Instagram account.
“He would love that the world is talking about how talented he was. And he really was very talented,” she said.
“As the Friends reunion was approaching, we rewatched the show together. ‘F**k, I was so good!!!…See what I did there?’ We rewound and studied scenes. Our respect and appreciation of humor is something that connected us. Being with him as he rediscovered his brilliance was magical.
“But, I obviously knew that man in a very different way, too. While I loved him deeper than I could comprehend, he was complicated, and he caused pain like I’d never known. No one in my adult life has had a more profound impact on me than Matthew Langford Perry. I have tremendous gratitude for that, for everything I learned from our relationship.”
“I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention Al Anon, an invaluable resource for those who love someone struggling with this destructive disease,” Molly added.
“Matty, I feel relief that you are at peace,” she concluded.

Also on Monday, the cast of the hit NBC sitcom Friends: Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc, and Lisa Kudrow shared a joint statement on the loss of their “family” member.
