NBC executives has warned Jimmy Fallon to cut back on his excessive drinking following a series of weird accidents that have been taken place.
According to Page Six:
An NBC insider said of the funnyman, “There were fears that Fallon was out of control and something could happen while he’s out drinking. 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 Fallon source said, “He is a heavy drinker. He sees himself as somebody who needs image rehabilitation.” But, we’re told by another friend, “He knows he needs to be responsible. He has two kids. He has cut back on his drinking.”
The first source said that, 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.
