GOSSIP & RUMORS: Jay Leno files conservatorship over wife after her Alzheimer’s diagnosis: report

Jay Leno has filed for conservatorship of his wife, Mavis, as she has reportedly been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.

TMZ reports that the former late-night host filed legal docs Friday to become conservator of Mavis’ estate.

An insider told the outlet that Mavis suffers from Alzheimer’s, a progressive disease that destroys memory and other important mental functions.

The Post has contacted reps for Leno for comment.

Jay, 73, and Mavis, 77, have been married for over four decades, tying the knot back in in 1980.

They do not have any kids.

In a 2023 appearance on “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” the comedian joked that the secret to a long marriage is to marry a “normal” person before giving a more heartfelt answer.

“I said always marry your conscience,” he explained. “Marry the person you wish you could be, who is kind and maybe whatever fault you have, doesn’t haven’t hose faults. That’s worked out for me, so to me, I married the perfect person.”

In November 2022, Jay suffered severe burns on his face in a garage gasoline fire. In January 2023, he survived a serious motorcycle crash which resulted in “a broken collarbone, two busted ribs and two cracked kneecaps.”

He later joked about his “new face” that he got after the initial car accident.

“It cut my face again,” he shared on Dana Carvey and David Spade’s podcast “Fly on the Wall.”

“So I called my face guy. I go, ‘Listen, you know that face, you gave me that new face? I gotta get it fixed.’ [He goes], ‘What’d you do?’ I told him, I drove up there and he fixed it again.”

“This is a brand new ear,” Leno said on the podcast. “When you get burned in a fire, ears are like paper. They’re so thin it just goes up.”

He quipped, “I got a buddy of mine who’s a mohel. He gave me a bag of grafts and they work out great.”
