Leslie Jordan complained of health problems before his death: report

The late Leslie Jordan reportedly scheduled an appointment with a cardiologist before his untimely death Monday.

TMZ reported on Tuesday that the 67-year-old actor has complained so much about shortness of breath for the past three weeks that he made a doctor’s appointment for the next few days.

Law enforcement sources told the outlet they believe Jordan suffered a heart attack when he wrecked his car in a Los Angeles building, resulting in his death.

The Post has reached out to Jordan’s representatives for comment. His official cause of death has not been disclosed.

Meanwhile, tributes are pouring in for the Will and Grace star.

“The world is definitely a much darker place today without the love and light of Leslie Jordan. Not only was he a mega-talent and a joy to work with, but he also provided the country with an emotional retreat during one of its most trying times,” Jordan’s manager told The Post on Monday.

“What he lacked in height he made up for in generosity and greatness as a son, brother, performer, 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 consolation you can have today,” his representative added.

Jordan starred in the Mayim Bialik-led sitcom Call me Kat as the head baker in Bialik’s character’s cafe.

Production on the Fox series has been suspended following Jordan’s death.
