NBC executives say beloved late night host Jimmy Fallon does not have a drinking problem, which really makes you wonder: "Does Jimmy Fallon have a drinking problem?"
NBC Entertainment chief Bob Greenblatt told reporters on Wednesday that Fallon “doesn’t have a drinking problem that any of us know about.” Umm, what do they mean "that any of us know about"? Jimmy, no!
Execs were trying to squash the rumors that have been swirling since this summer about the late night host's excessive partying after he hurt his finger, then chipped his tooth, then hurt his other hand when he tripped and fell while holding a bottle of Jaegermeister, all in a matter of months. Fallon joked about the minor injuries and posted pics of them to Instagram.
The comments from Greenblatt like “He goes out and has fun. He’s had some accidents" and "I don’t have those conversations with Jimmy Fallon” are slightly unsettling, but only time will tell if Fallon is just fun and clumsy or struggling with something darker. Hopefully, it's the former.
