Michael B. Jordan FINALLY moving out of the Sherman Oaks mansion he shares with his parents

Creed II actor Michael B. Jordan revealed he’s finally moving out of the Sherman Oaks mansion (he bought in 2016) that he shares with his parents Donna and Michael A. Jordan ‘this fall.’

The 31-year-old action star told the November edition of Vanity Fair that he will soon live in a ‘penthouse in downtown Los Angeles, three blocks from the home of a friend in his entourage.’

It’s taken the Emmy-nominated producer two years to leave the nest, partly ‘to care for his mother’ but his father’s ‘sandwiches’ were another reason.

‘I love my parents but we have a roommate relationship right now, which is interesting,’ Michael previously said on the February 6 episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

‘You get homecooked meals but then you also have random trips to the kitchen in the middle of the night – just the random run-ins that might be uncomfortable from time to time.’

Despite Black Panther amassing $1.3B at the global box office, Jordan only earned $2M and some back-end residuals for his role as the power-hungry antagonist Erik ‘Killmonger’ Stevens.

‘Moving forward it’s a totally different story,’ the Cali-born, Jersey-raised star told the mag of his ‘rookie’ move.

‘This is the defining moment in a lot of different areas for me that’s gonna set up my next five to 10. That’s why I’m so locked in right now, because if it was ever a time to get distracted or, like, drop the ball, this is not it.’

With his mounting success, the former soap star is happy to leave ‘stereotypical black roles’ behind for more mainstream roles and he’s already created production and marketing companies.

‘What I’m trying to represent and build, is universal,’ Michael explained.

‘I want to create projects for Brad Pitt, but at the same time I want to be able to create a movie for Will Smith, or Denzel Washington, or Lupita Nyong’o, or Tessa Thompson.

‘It’s gonna be eclectic. It’s gonna be animation. It’s gonna be non-scripted. It’s gonna be digital. It’s gonna be film, television. It’s gonna be video games.’
