His shining star shined even more at the height in the outbreak as his online following began to grow via Instagram, garnering him millions of followers.

This platform was also a space where Jordan wrote about his challenges as well as family and memories.

Jordan spoke to CNN’s Anderson Cooper about his past addiction to drugs and his recovery for over 20 years.

“People ask, ‘How do you become sober? Jordan said “What’s the most effective method?” . “Yeah Well, you can spend 120 days in jail at Los Angeles. This will help you get sober.”

In one blog post, Jordan recalled a guard who was sympathetic to his feelings about Jordan’s dislike of incarceration. Jordan disliked prison, and told him there was Robert Downey Jr. (who years ago was the subject of headlines due to some minor snafuss in the court) in prison and would soon be releasing Jordan and granting Downey Jr. his bed.

“Pod A Cell 13, the top bunk” Jordan recalled. “I believe I am responsible for the majority the Robert Downey Jr.’s success. Honey I provided him with an apartment.”

His most recent post on Instagram was his singing a song with musician Danny Myrick on Sunday.
