Jimmy Fallon is NOT in a “cocaine battle,” despite a sensational new tabloid cover story. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the report, which we’re told is “total fiction.”

The new issue of the National Enquirer, which hit newsstands on Wednesday, alleges Fallon is “riding a deadly spiral of booze, cocaine, and wild partying.” Supposedly “cracking under the pressure” of “The Tonight Show,” it’s said the late-night host is “turning to his favorite vices as an escape.” The supermarket tabloid cites a so-called “insider” as claiming Fallon “started doing coke regularly two months” into his new job.

The outlet goes on to rehash Fallon’s recent injuries, and has the gall to cite a psychotherapist who has NEVER treated the star. “He’s an addict,” the doctor says, even though she’s never even met him. But both the doctor and the tabloid’s source speculate that Fallon desperately needs to go to rehab.

And that’s not all. The National Enquirer further claims that Fallon’s wife, Nancy Juvonen, has become “so fed up with his out-of-control behavior,” she “booted the 41-year-old bad boy out of their luxurious Manhattan home earlier this month, forcing him to move into a nearby hotel.”

But Gossip Cop has learned that’s a total misrepresentation. A rep for Fallon exclusively tells us he only stayed at a hotel “while his apartment was being renovated and his family stayed at their Hamptons home.” As the spokesperson explains, “He had to stay at the hotel for his job in New York City during the week and joined his family on weekends. Incidentally, the renovations are [now] completed and [they’re] back in the New York City apartment all together.”

Gossip Cop also spoke with another Fallon confidante, who summed up the National Enquirer cover story as a “load of crap,” “total fiction,” and “garbage.”
