Friends Say Notorious Recluse Jack Nicholson is in Mental Trouble, and Needs Help

When you think about who the “acting greats” are, at the top of most people’s lists will be this guy: Jack Nicholson. His character in “The Shinning” still gives me goosebumps. But we don’t see much of Jack anymore, do we? As a matter of fact, I couldn’t recall if he was dead or alive, he’s been out of the news for so long…Well, as it turns out, Jack has become a recluse, who refuses to leave his house. And his friends believe he has dementia, and will die alone.

Sounds like Jack is in some serious trouble. Very sad to hear.

Radar Online reported that Jack Nicholson hasn’t appeared in public in over a year, and friends fear the legendary lothario will die a recluse like his late buddy Marlon Brando, has learned.

“He’s made it clear his home is his castle. But people just wish he’d come out of the house and pop up to tell them how — or at least reassure folks he’s OK,” confided an insider.

The Shining screen psycho, 85, remains holed up in his luxurious Mulholland Drive mansion and hasn’t been seen out on the town since attending an Los Angeles Lakers basketball game on October 19, 2021, with his 30-year-old son — Out of the Blue hunk Ray, tipsters tattled.

“Jack’s in touch with certain relatives — especially Ray, his protégé, who he’s so proud of — but his socializing days are long gone,” the insider squealed.

But according to sources, pals worry the once notorious womanizer is mirroring the sad last days of Godfather great Brando.

“Brando died a virtual recluse after leading such a colorful life, and Jack’s friends are drawing the comparisons,” spilled the source. “His kids will visit, but they’re his only connection to the world.

“It’s like he doesn’t want to face reality anymore — and that’s just sad.”

Close friends fear the issue could be much larger, with insiders telling last year that many from his inner circle are worried the legendary Hollywood actor is suffering from Dementia.

That’s sad. Dementia is no joke, and shouldn’t be taken lightly. If that’s true, let’s hope Jack (and Joe) get properly treated for their diseases.
