Jay Leno has revealed that the mystery condition that put him in hospital last week was exhaustion, which is an illness “only rich people get,” he says.
The late night talk show host checked himself into hospital on April 23 forcing him to cancel his first Tonight Show in 17 years.
“Exhaustion,” Leno told PEOPLE on Friday was the cause of his illness. “That’s like a rich person’s condition. Poor people that work – they don’t get exhausted. Only rich people get exhausted. It’s an embarrassing thing. Yes, I was exhausted. Yes, yes, exhausted.”
He jokes, “No, I didn’t have swine flu or anything like that at all. And really, now, I’m fine, I’m great.”
