Tom Selleck is one of the actors in Hollywood that has been in the business for a long time. This only proved his success, and at 75 years old, he is still at the top while starring in Blue Bloods.
Tom Selleck is the main character in the said CBS police procedural drama that debuted in September 2010. Blue Bloods is preparing for its 11th season, but amid the production works, it was rumored the veteran actor is leaving the show.
The alleged reason for his plans to exit
According to the National Enquirer, Selleck is rarely seen in public these days, and his absence made his fans and colleagues worried. They are mainly concerned about his health, which could also affect his career, so they are wondering how he is doing.
The tabloid reported that they soon learned that Tom Selleck could be leaving “Blue Bloods” due to his poor health condition.
It was alleged that he was diagnosed with crippling arthritis and could be dying. This ailment is said to be making it hard for the actor to work on the set, so he is giving up his show for good.
“Tom’s been struggling with a host of medical problems for some time now,” an insider supposedly told the magazine. “The fear is that they may finally be overwhelming him!”
The suspicious source added, “He’s been to doctors and learned techniques to alleviate the pain, but it’s a disease that isn’t going to go away. His days as the car-jumping, scuba-diving action star are now a thing of the past.”
Tom Selleck is leaving Hollywood altogether
In another article published by Star Magazine, it was alleged that Tom Selleck is not only departing from his drama. He was said to have made the decision to say goodbye to Hollywood.
Insiders revealed that he wants to spend more time with his family now. He is old and doesn’t care about popularity anymore, so it is easy to let go.
Plus, he has earned enough to live a comfortable life without working. Thus it is time to move away from the spotlight.
“Tom has more than enough money and he’s not attached to fame and the trappings that go along with it,” the tipster told Star. “So he’s thinking about stepping away once and for all.”
The truth about Tom’s decision to quit and leave his career forever
It turned out that both stories mentioned about Tom Selleck are totally not true. Gossip Cop reached out to the actor’s camp and was able to talk to his representative.
The rep told the publication that rumors of Tom leaving Blue Bloods and Hollywood are both wrong. In fact, he seems determined to star in his drama until it officially concludes.
Finally, it was already confirmed that Tom Selleck is returning to the show for its season 11. This detail alone made it clear that the Star and New Enquirer reports are untrue.
