RIP: Jordan Feldstein, Brother of Jonah Hill, Rock Manager for Maroon 5, Heart Attack at 40


Jordan Feldstein has reportedly died in Los Angeles. He was the brother of actor Jonah Hill and actress Beanie Feldstein. Jordan was 40, and the larger than life rock and roll manager of Maroon 5 among other groups. Reports say he died from a heart attack. Condolences to the family.

Jordan was truly a larger than life figure– huge physically, for one thing. He was also not exempt from public disturbances. A couple of years ago I watched as he got into a huge fight with Sharon Osbourne at Clive Davis’s pre-Grammy dinner in Beverly Hills. Drinks were thrown, narrowly missing Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift.

Feldstein was married twice, once to Clint Eastwood and Frances Fisher’s daughter Francesca. The marriage as annulled. He has two children from a previous marriage. It looks like, from photos, that Jordan (like Jonah) had lost a lot of weight recently, maybe from surgery. What a shame if it was too late to save him. Terrible news.
