Leslie Jordan Dies At The Age Of 67. Cause Of Death Has Been Revealed

Such devastating news! Leslie Jordan, the legend in Will & Grace and American Horror Story has died at the age of 67.

Law enforcement confirmed that Jordan suffered a medical emergency while driving in Hollywood on the morning of Oct. 24th. The car crashed into the side of the building, which was lethal for the legendary actor. His official representatives confirmed that he has passed away.

Born in 1955 in Chattanooga, Tennessee, he came out as gay in the deeply conservative state when he was just 12 years of age.

“I told my mother I thought something was up. I didn’t even know the word ‘gay,'” he told People magazine last year.

“She didn’t pull her Bible out, which I thought she would. She said, ‘I’m just really afraid that if you choose this path, you’ll be ridiculed,'” he recalled, adding that she told him to “‘just live your life quietly.’ I didn’t follow her advice on that one.”

“The world is definitely a much darker place today without the love and light of Leslie Jordan,” Jordan’s agent David Shaul said in a statement. “Not only was he a mega talent and joy to work with, but he provided an emotional sanctuary to the nation at one of its most difficult times. What he lacked in height he made up for in generosity and greatness as a son, brother, artist, comedian, partner and human being. Knowing that he has left the world at the height of both his professional and personal life is the only solace one can have today.”

Jordan was known worldwide for his work in popular sitcoms like The Cool Kids, Will & Grace, Hearts Afire, as well as his recurring roles in American Horror Story.

A spokesperson for the LAPD says there was a traffic collision on Cahuenga Boulevard and Romaine Street in West Hollywood at 9:30 a.m. on Monday. Jordan who was the one behind the wheel in a BMW, hit a wall and “was pronounced dead on scene.” According to confirmed reports by law enforcement he have suffered a medical emergency while driving.

Many world famous stars and personal friends to Jordan from the industry took it to social media to express their condolences. The world will miss this phenomenal actor and personality.

Rest in Peace Leslie!
