Matt Healy: My mother thought I was dead for six hours

Matt Healy revealed that his mother Denise Welch thought that he was dead after reading rumors on Twitter stating that the actor had died because of a drug overdose

“Russell Brand had that he died in a snowboarding accident, that’s quite funny. Someone said I had an overdose in my flat, who’s making that s**t up? I didn’t. I was on a plane to America,” a popular portal quoted him as saying.

“My mum rang me in tears. She thought I was dead for six hours. That’s not cool at all. That is the s**t I don’t like (about fame),” he added.

The 25-year-old, son of actor Tim Healy, has grown up dealing with fame but admits there have been a number of rumours about him and he isn’t a fan of the attention that comes with his band’s success.

“There have been loads of rumours. (One) that I slept with Rashida Jones, Quincy Jones’ daughter, I didn’t sleep with her. I wish I had. She’s wife material,” he said.

“I don’t really like it (the fame) on a personal level. I don’t like being so exposed and having things that I don’t think about being topics of conversation for other people. I don’t like the fact that every time I get out of a car I have a f***ing camera in my face,” he added.
