The rumors about Jimmy Fallon having a drinking problem have been floating around for quite a while but according to “Page Six” the situation of the “Tonight Show” host might be getting out of control. Sources say that NBC executives are starting to get worried and they even had to intervene, warning Fallon to cut back on the alcohol. “There were fears that Fallon was out of control and something could happen while he’s out drinking,”
Furthermore, according to an anonymous source, his alleged addiction is rumored to have affected even his family life, threatening his relationship with his wife: “Things got so serious at one stage that execs feared that Jimmy was splitting up with his wife over his drinking, but they patched things up.”
Another source close to Fallon added: “He is a heavy drinker. He sees himself as somebody who needs image rehabilitation.”
It seems that not everyone is out to get him as a friend came to Fallon’s defense by saying that the former SNL star is putting a lot of effort in turning his life around for the sake of his children, “He knows he needs to be responsible. He has two kids. He has cut back on his drinking.”
On the other hand, other sources insist that Jimmy Fallon is not as responsible as believed. They claim that his wife is very disappointed and upset with the comedian and feels overwhelmed enough taking care of their two young daughters to worry about Jimmy’s state as well
“They have two daughters Winnie, 3, and Frances, 1; Nancy works, and she doesn’t have time to babysit Jimmy, too.” said the inside source.
We know that, last year, Fallon have been in danger because of two injuries supposedly caused by alcohol consumption in the span of only four months but the host himself did not associate the accidents to drinking.
Is Jimmy Fallon’s alleged drinking problem real or is it just unfounded rumors?
