Even after raking in millions of dollars from the mega-blockbuster “Black Panther,” Michael B. Jordan remained to live with his parents. This is despite the fact that Jordan is one of the most sought-after performers in Hollywood.
In November 2018, actor Michael B. Jordan welcomed Vogue magazine inside his house to provide readers with a look into his family life. His mother, Donna Jordan, was seen in the inset footage from the outlet preparing some of his favorite rum cakes as she was in the kitchen.
When asked to describe his much cherished mother, Michael responded with three words: she is kind and affectionate, and he quipped that this characteristic of hers may be embarrassing at times.
Michael A. Jordan, the man who he calls his idol and who was seen on film grilling in the backyard, was the son’s father. The film producer gave his father adjectives such as “powerful” and “calm” and called him a “thinker.” Michael said that the quality that he values the most that he inherited from his parents is compassion.
According to Realtor.com, the A-lister paid $1.7 million in 2015 to purchase a Spanish-style property in Sherman Oaks, California, that was 4,672 square feet and included four bedrooms. In it, he lived with his parents, and he told The Times that it had been his lifelong ambition to one day buy a house for them:
“To tell you the truth, purchasing a home for one’s parents is almost every youngster’s most cherished wish. It was something that has been on my list for a long time.”
Michael acknowledged that living with his parents as an adult created a strange relationship, but he cherished the fact that he could always return home to “home-cooked meals.” He also said that it had been a little odd when he walked to the kitchen at night “shirtless” and sometimes “a little bare,” but he pointed out that it worked for them:
“Although I like my parents, my connection with them at the moment is more akin to that of a roommate,” I said.
“And they are aware of it as well; thus, it is a matter of striking a balance and having an awareness of where they are in their life and marriage. However, you should be aware that in addition to being your parents, your parents also serve as your housemates. And that’s a strange dynamic to boot, “added Michael.
Donna and Michael senior continued to take an interest in the lives and activities of their son. According to Vanity Fair, the actor most known for his role in “Creed” used to have business meetings at the residence he shared with his family and his father would bring in a plate of sandwiches.
Michael A. has photos of Marcus Garvey, Martin Luther King, and Malcolm X hanging on the walls of his room, in addition to a bookcase that is stuffed with works on black history and literature. Even his wife, Donna, who is an artist, has some of her works hanging on the walls.
DONNA HAS LUPUS AND IS AN EMOTIONAL BEING
Donna is now struggling with lupus, a chronic autoimmune condition, in addition to providing a home for her kid. Michael junior organized and presided over the first-ever charity event in September 2017, which aimed to raise both funds and publicity for the Lupus Los Angeles organization.
The city of Los Angeles honored the mother and son for their dedication to the cause and awarded them with a special proclamation on behalf of the city as a token of appreciation for their work.
In the same year, Michael organized the first annual MBJAM, which he had devised in order to raise awareness about lupus via the participation of members of his family and children.
During his appearance on “The Off Camera Show” in May 2020, the star of “Just Mercy” discussed his mother in an open and honest manner, revealing that she is a sensitive person.
Michael disclosed the fact that anytime she saw any of his movies in which one of his characters passed away, it would cause her to shed tears over the tragic plot.
He said that after she saw his movie “Fruitvale Station” from 2013, in which he portrayed Oscar, she sent him a text imploring him not to leave her and that she missed him. He also stated that she told him she missed him.
The person who was originally from California said that he had to tell his worried mother that he would not be leaving the country anytime soon.
Donna is an overprotective mother who would do everything for her child, even disobeying the regulations of the airport. When Michael appeared on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” in December 2019, he revealed that his mother went above and beyond to make sure that he was able to eat his favorite meal on Thanksgiving while he was in Germany. The meal in question was turkey with all the trimmings, which Michael’s mother knew was his favorite.
A former cast member from “The Wire” praised his mother’s cooking and said that she only prepares the meal on special occasions such as birthdays and Thanksgiving.
When Jimmy Fallon questioned if he had the lunch that year, he replied yes and described how he ultimately got to eat the cuisine while shooting on location in another country: When Jimmy Fallon asked whether he had the meal that year, he responded yes and explained how he eventually got to eat it:
“She was able to evade detection in some manner, maybe by sneaking it through customs. And she successfully delivered it to Berlin. Because I had to miss my very first Thanksgiving because I was shooting in Berlin for the last three months, she devised a plan to send me some of her renowned pork and mac and cheese along with some macaroni and cheese that she had made.”
Donna is an excellent chef, and she was once seen bringing her kid a particular meal that she had prepared for him and packed in a paper bag for him to eat for lunch.
The camera from Vogue showed Michael obtaining his meal from his mother, and he coyly admitted that this was one of the pleasures of living with his parents rather than moving out on his own.
THE JORDAN’S MANSION IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
When Michael wasn’t working, he often used his time off by hanging out with his parents at their house. In the beginning, the home was just a simple tear-down situated on a corner property.
In June of 2013, a real estate developer paid $710,000 for the property and then remodeled it into a modern house that had 4.5 bathrooms. In addition, there is a spa and a swimming pool at the property.
The inside of the home is gray and white, and it has hardwood flooring. The outside of the building is white. The white and gray color scheme continues into the kitchen, which also has silver equipment.
The training area for the action movie star is located in one of the three garages, and it is furnished with a brown lounge chair, a gray rug, and other pieces of exercise equipment.
The house has French doors, a large tree plant in the hallway, and a hung-up world map in one of the lounge rooms. Additionally, the mansion has a large tree plant in the hallway.
The color scheme of Michael’s study is black and brown, and it includes wallpaper on one side of the wall, as well as two armchairs in a beige color that complement the couch.
The star of “The Boondocks,” however, has long ago moved away from his parents’ house. During an appearance on the now-cancelled television show “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in January 2020, he divulged the fact that he was now living by himself at his new residence:
“It came to pass! It’s excellent. It’s wonderful. When I departed, I had a strong suspicion that they saged the whole home. They must have burned incense and bleached the area to remove any traces of me before allocating space for me to live.”
Michael said that despite the fact that he has successfully fled the parental abode, he does not reside more than twenty minutes away from his parents’ home since it is more convenient for him to do so. “Sunday supper, in case you were wondering. Both mom and dad are excellent cooks “stated the candidate for an Emmy award.
