Jay Leno Files For Conservatorship Over Wife
Jay Leno, age 73, has filed for conservatorship over his wife, Mavis.
She has Alzheimer's disease.
The couple have been married for over four decades, tying the knot back in 1980.
On Jan. 26, the former host of The Tonight Show filed legal documents to become conservator of Mavis' estate.
The exact details of when Mavis was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease are unknown, and the couple seems to be getting an appropriate degree of privacy right now, so it's hard to tell if/when those details may eventually emerge.
"Conservatorship" is a legal status in which somebody controls the financial and person affairs of another, either because that person is a minor or incapacitated.
Jay Leno hasn't let the diagnosis change the way he feels about his wife, as he's still madly in love with her.
During a recent appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Jay Leno said that you should "marry the person you wish you could be" and said that he "married the perfect person."
Leno has had an interesting past twelve months or so.
About a year ago, Leno suffered serious burns in an engine fire.
At the end of 2022, Leno and his friend Dave Killackey were performing maintenance on one of Leno's vintage cars when the automobile erupted into flames in the entertainer's face.
Shortly after that, he broke his collarbone in a motorcycle crash.
It's always tough when a person is as famous as Leno is, but his family is obviously going through a lot more than usual right now.
Thoughts and prayers go out to Jay and his wife that they are able to deal with her disease in the best way possible.
We pray that this sad news somehow brings the family closer together than ever before.
