Leslie Jordan has died at the age of 67, his rep confirmed to E! News.

“The world is definitely a much darker place today without the love and light of Leslie Jordan,” the Oct. 24 statement read. “Not only was he a mega talent and joy to work with, but he provided an emotional sanctuary to the nation at one of its most difficult times. What he lacked in height he made up for in generosity and greatness as a son, brother, artist, 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 solace one can have today.”

According to TMZ, who cited law enforcement sources and was the first to report the news, the actor was driving in Hollywood on Oct. 24, when he was suspected to have suffered from a medical emergency and crashed his vehicle into the side of a building.
