Jay Leno was MIA from a scheduled appearance on Sunday night due to a “very serious medical emergency.”
The former “Tonight Show” host, 72, was supposed to perform at the Financial Brand Forum 2022 in Las Vegas but was forced to cancel shortly before, according to an email sent to the conference’s attendees.
“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,” read the email, which People obtained on Monday.
“All we know is that he is alive, so our prayers go out to him and his family tonight.”
Reps for Leno did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
Though it’s unclear what kind of medical emergency took place, Leno has dealt with cardiovascular issues in recent years.
In March 2019, he revealed he had high cholesterol and a blockage in his heart.
“We really want people to see the connection, because a lot of people don’t realize high cholesterol — and if you’ve had a heart attack or stroke, you’re increasing your risk for another one,” he said in a video at the time.
“It’s like an earthquake, it might not destroy the house, but it certainly weakens the structure.”
