In 1983 he made headlines after his girlfriend, Nancy Argentino was found unresponsive in his hotel room.

He was found unfit to stand trial in June 2016 after being diagnosed with dementia. His health continued to decline and in December 2016, his rep announced that Jimmy was diagnosed with a terminal illness and only had 6 months to live.
