Reports have been swirling for some time now that Jimmy Fallon’s drinking is out of control. Over the last year or so he’s nearly severing his ring finger on a table in 2015. Then he chipped his tooth “trying to open medicine for his injured finger” a few months later. Then he cut his hand on a bottle of Jägermeister. In September of this year a “very drunk” Fallon was seen alone at an NYC punk bar at 3 a.m, which sparked more NBC concerns.
Now Page six is reporting friends are spilling the beans:
while Fallon’s show is No. 1, a few key staff members have left to work for CBS rival James Corden. “Fallon is insanely jealous of Corden,” the source continued. “There’s been some upheaval, and Jimmy hasn’t handled it well. He’s at the top of his game, but he’s insecure.” Fallon has parted ways with his longtime publicist and just hired Brad Pitt’s crisis p.r. manager.
Here’s hoping he’ll pace himself better and remember how much his family needs him.
