Jimmy Fallon’s Mother Dies
Jimmy Fallon is mourning the death of his mother, Gloria Fallon, who passed away on Saturday (Nov 4).
“Jimmy Fallon’s mother, Gloria, died peacefully on Saturday,” A Fallon family spokesperson told PEOPLE in a statement. “Jimmy was at his mother’s bedside, along with her loved ones, when she passed away at NYU Langone Medical Center in NYC. Our prayers go out to Jimmy and his family as they go through this tough time.”
The tragic news comes after Fallon cancelled a Nov. 3 taping of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon due to a “private Fallon family matter.”
A source revealed to PEOPLE then that Gloria was sick and that Fallon, 43, had gone to the hospital to be by her side.
“Jimmy comes from a very close knit family, and together with the rest of his loved ones they are by her side right now,” the source added.
My thoughts and prayers are with Jimmy Fallon and his family during this difficult time.
