He’s A Family Man

Social media was quick to clown Jordan for revealing last year that he shares his L.A. residence with his mother and father during an appearance on Vogue’s 73 Questions. We all had a good laugh at the idea of successful, grown man shacking up with mom and dad but Jordan cut the jokes shorts when he clapped back letting fans know that his family lives with HIM and not the other way around. The 32-year-old Newark, NJ native later shared that both of his parents have health issues. His mother, Donna, has lupus an auto-immune disorder in which symptoms can vary from seizures to sharp chest pains. In 2014, he revealed to ESSENCE that he’s grateful to have his mother living close to him. Jordan acts an ambassador for Lupus L.A. and even spoke of the services she receives during a charity during a 2017 benefit. He also speaks highly of his father who is a diabetic, “My Dad… he’s a diabetic and has complications with that from time to time.” “Being grateful for the things I have, family that I have around. It always kind of puts things in perspective for me.”
