Jordan Wilder (born Jordy Michaels) is a character on Famous In Love. A "troubled star", he lands the role of the other point in the Locked movie's famous love triangle. He and Rainer have a complicated history. He dated Tangey Turner for several episodes, and shared real chemistry with her. However, when she found out about Nina and Jordan's love affair, she dumped him. He is portrayed by Keith Powers.
Jordan has had issues with his mother, Brandy Michaels, since an early age. She was never an ideal caregiver for him, but they still had a relationship of sorts. Jordan said that she neglected to feed him at all, and take care of him, so he was left to take care of himself. During Jordan's childhood, as Brandy was being abused by her then-boyfriend, Jordan snapped and accidentally murdered him. His mother was then sent to prison for 5 years for the crime that he committed. Jordan changed his name from "Jordy Michaels" to "Jordan Wilder", and started over without her.
He created his entire career around the story that he never had a family and his mother died while he was young. When his mother was released, she blackmailed and extorted him for money in order to keep her being alive quiet.

Rainer Devon (friendship)
In "Pilot", we were introduced to Jordan as being an enemy of Rainer's, after Tangey cheated on Rainer with him. We find out that they used to be best friends, and this drove them apart. In the photoshoot during "Not So Easy A", Rainer and Jordan get into a physical fight and finish the photoshoot early. However, at the end of the episode, they both meet up and forgive eachother for all that's happened. In "Prelude to a Diss", Jordan and Rainer are friends again and Rainer assures him that Tangey is in the past. However, at this point, Rainer still doesn't know that Jordan is sleeping with Nina.
Tangey cheated on Rainer with Jordan. This caused lots of drama and divide between Rainer and Jordan, who used to be best friends before the incident. Tangey and Jordan start to form a real relationship later, and become very close. However, this is all torn apart when Tangey finds out about Nina and Jordan's love affair.
Jordan was secretly seeing Nina romantically, as revealed in A Star is Torn.
