Regis Philbin is NOT weeks away from dying, despite a false and insensitive tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this claim. We’re told it’s not true.

“Regis – Five Weeks To Live!” blares a new headline in the National Enquirer, which goes on to claim that the “cancer stricken 93 pound TV legend is fading fast.” A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “Regis’ health has been failing for years, and it’s been on a steady decline recently. Everyone’s afraid he won’t live to see another spring. His family is praying for a miracle.”

The outlet’s dubious insider goes on to claim that Philbin “couldn’t stand up straight” while celebrating his wife’s birthday earlier this month, adding, “His hands were shaking something awful as he carried his boxed leftovers to the car.” Gossip Cop, however, checked in with a reliable source close to Philbin, who exclusively assures us that the iconic TV personality is in good health, and the tabloid’s claim that he has weeks to live is entirely untrue.

In fact, an energetic Philbin appeared on “Larry King Now” just earlier this month and talked about a potential return to television. Regardless, the Enquirer’s allegation about Philbin being on the verge of death is completely false.
