On Monday, October 24, 2022, the sad news came out that beloved actor and comedian Leslie Jordan had died at the age of 67.
TMZ says that he had some kind of medical emergency while he was driving through Hollywood, which caused him to crash into the side of a building.
After his sudden death, people are wondering if he had a partner. Was Leslie Jordan married?
Was Leslie Jordan Married Before His Tragic Passing?
The American Horror Story actor had become a gay icon throughout his career. In 2021, he joked to the LA Times, “I fell out of the womb and landed in my mother’s high heels.”
Leslie said that he used drugs and alcohol as a way to deal with being gay over the years, but that he had finally reached a point where he was “100% comfortable” with who he was.
So, did the funny star get married? In a 2017 interview with Gay Times Magazine (via Yahoo News), the actor said that a partner once asked him to marry her after only three days together.
“I kept straight boys for a long time. This is what my generation did… I spent 10 years with one, “he said. “Now I’m dating a guy who is 20 years younger than me, but he likes men with grey hair. For a long time, people did it online. Three days before I left for London, he flew to Los Angeles. He asked me to marry him after three days, and I will.”
“I told him, “I’m going to London for 30 days and we’ll see what happens when I get back,” Leslie said. “There was this link. About 10 times, we tried to have sex, but we couldn’t because we kept talking.”
But it doesn’t look like this was the start of a marriage. Even though Leslie didn’t talk much about his relationships, several news sources said that he was single as of early 2021.

A unique skill and a huge, caring heart. “My dear friend, I will miss you.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Leslie’s funny home videos went viral on social media, which Lynda Carter, who plays Wonder Woman, remembers well.
“Leslie Jordan made a lot of people happy, especially with his pandemic videos,” she wrote on Twitter. “What a challenge it was to keep us laughing and connected during such hard times… It seems so cruel that this could happen to such a beautiful soul.”
During this hard time, we are thinking about Leslie Jordan’s family, friends, and fans.
Leslie Jordan Claimed One of His Partner Proposed to Him Three Days After Meeting
In interviews, Leslie Jordan didn’t talk much about his own life. Yahoo says that in 2017 when he talked to The Gay Times, the star of “Baby Daddy” said that he had a partner who proposed to him three days after they met.
Jordan said in the interview that he used to date straight men and that one of his relationships lasted 10 years.
“I know a guy who is 20 years younger than me, but he has a thing for men with silver hair. For a long time, people did it online. Three days before I left for London, he flew to Los Angeles. He asked me to marry him after three days, and I will. I told him, “Let’s see what happens when I get back from London in 30 days.” It had to do with this link. About 10 times, we tried to have s*x but couldn’t because we were talking.
But because they lived so far apart, things didn’t work out between them.
In 2021, Leslie Jordan told Andy Cohen on a radio talk show that he had never been on a date and was single.

“I don’t mind being single at all. I have so many habits. I’m going to tell you the truth: I’ve never been on a date. Like, where you pick me up and take me somewhere. We didn’t do that when I was a kid. A lot of bars were there. You left, and then you went here and there. I don’t think I’ve ever been on a date, though.
In an interview with Chris Azzopardi for Pride Source in February 2022, the actor from The Cool Kids again gave a sneak peek into his love life. He went on and on about how his boyfriend was helping him get over the fact that he had trouble accepting compliments.
“Every time someone compliments me, Leslie, my boyfriend tells me, ‘When someone compliments you, compliment them back.'” And I said, ‘No, no, I’m too busy…’ But he’ll say, “Own it, and say, by the way, you…”, so that’s what you do. I’m trying to do that. I’m trying hard on that.”
But Leslie Jordan has never been married or had children in his life.
