Michael B. Jordan Is 'Struggling' and 'Beyond Sad' Following Chadwick Boseman's Death

The 'Black Panther' star is having a difficult time following the tragic death of his friend and co-star.

Michael B. Jordan is struggling to come to terms with the loss of his dear friend and co-star, Chadwick Boseman. Boseman died at the age of 43 last week following a private battle with colon cancer. 

ET has learned that Jordan, 33, is "struggling" and "beyond sad" by the death of Boseman. The Black Panther star is at a loss for words and was "rocked" by the news. 

Boseman was more than a friend, he was a brother to Jordan. He's currently trying to figure out the best way to honor his co-star's legacy. 

His “silence is his pain,” ET is told. 

Jordan has not released a public statement since the news of Boseman's death. He starred opposite Boseman in the 2018 Marvel action film as Erik Killmonger, the cousin of Boseman's T'Challa. 

"[Michael] had to buy into playing a villain, which he hasn't done, you know, and I had to buy into having the weight of the hero [on me]," Boseman told ET back in 2018. "So it's something that we both had to buy into doing together and to collaborating together."
