Jay Leno Cancels Appearance Due to “Serious Medical Emergency”
According to an email sent to Forum 2022 attendees from The Financial Brand, the former Tonight Show host had to cancel his plans to perform at the financial conference in Las Vegas Nov. 13 due to a health issue. “His family was not able to provide us very many details, but there was a very serious medical emergency that is preventing Jay from traveling,” the email, obtained by People, read. “All we know is that he is alive, so our prayers go out to him and his family tonight.”
TMZ, citing sources with knowledge of the situation, reported on Nov. 14 that Jay is in a burn center after one of his “erupted into flames without warning.”
E! News has reached out to reps for Jay and the conference and has not heard back.
