Jimmy Fallon’s body has had it rough this summer. In June, Fallon severely injured his finger, almost losing it, during a fall that happened in his kitchen.
“I tripped and fell in my kitchen on a braided rug that my wife loves, and I can’t wait to burn it to the ground. My ring got caught on the countertop when I was going down, and stuck there and pulled my finger off.”
Jimmy was very lucky that he didn’t lose his finger during that accident. Surgeons spent six hours trying to ensure that Jimmy would not lose his finger. The injury to his finger, and the surgery, forced Fallon to stay in the hospital ICU for 10 days.
“Apparently, the odds aren’t great and usually they just cut your finger off.”
Today, Fallon posted a picture on Instagram that showed him with a chipped tooth.
So just how did Fallon end up doing this to himself? It turns out that happened because of a medication he was using for his injured finger. He likely was not able to open the scar tissue repair gel the proper way, with his hand, so he did what many of us have done and tried to open up something with his mouth.
Fans of Jimmy Fallon took to Twitter to poke fun at the accident prone celebrity.

@jimmyfallon Sounds like you need a good Mexican curandera to wash away the bad juju.

@jimmyfallon seriously. You don’t even need writers anymore with the accidents you seem to have. Great save on paying writers. LoL

@jimmyfallon Just your luck. You may need a talisman, red or blue ribbon against evil eye.

What did Jimmy Fallon do in a past life to deserve the summer that he is having? Is this some form of karma for Lip Sync Battle?
