Jimmy Fallon may be killin’ it on The Tonight Show, but sources say his after-hours behavior isn’t sitting well with his wife of eight years, Nancy Juvonen, 48.
Star readers know that on June 26, he was rushed to the hospital when he injured his finger after a boozy night of partying with fans. The 40-year-old comedian went out for a little grub at Scalindatella on the Upper East Side in New York City, but after returning to his apartment, he was next seen checking himself into the ICU of a nearby hospital the next morning.
At first it was believed to be a minor accident, but it was quite the opposite.
“Nancy was in tears,” says a source. “It was a serious accident. He could have lost his finger.”
After 10 days in the ICU, he was released after he nearly ripped off his own finger from tripping on a kitchen rug at home—called ring avulsion. On his return to The Tonight Show, he warned fans not to Google what a ring avulsion is because it’s just too gruesome to look at.
While Jimmy’s drinking is not news to his wife, the insider adds that she’s getting fed up with his antics now that they have two young children—daughters Winnie, 2, Frances, 6 months—at home.
“He has a family to look after now—and sometimes Nancy wonders if he can even take care of himself,” dishes the insider.
