Leslie was born and raised in Tennessee and attended a Southern Baptist church. He started singing there and would sing gospel hymns on his social media accounts in recent years. He moved to Los Angeles in 1982 to pursue an acting career. Unfortunately, he got caught up in drug addiction for some time in the ’80s and claimed to share a jail cell with Robert Downey Jr. However, he had been sober for many years since.
