There’s no shortage of rumors about Jimmy Fallon’s partying.
The late-night host has battled reports that his drinking is so out of control, network execs have become concerned and are considered giving him the ax. Other rumors have said that his excessive partying almost caused his wife to leave him.
“He sees Jimmy as a loose cannon and it’s just a matter of time before he screws up,” an NBC insider told Page Six about the feud brewing between Fallon and Corden. “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.”
Corden, on the other hand, is sober and reportedly careful about not mixing business and pleasure — even to the point of refusing to hang out with his crew outside of work.
“They couldn’t be more polar opposites — James lives a sober life off-camera and is careful about not partying with his staff,” the source revealed. “Jimmy has no such boundaries and loves to tie one on with his crew.”
The most shocking part of the new rumor is that Corden apparently plans to use Fallon’s drinking against him to advance his own career.
“James has every intention of knocking Fallon off his pedestal when the time is right and he’s playing a slow and studied game to make it happen,” the source claims. “There’s a huge rivalry between James and Jimmy and only one of the two will win this war.”
