There was concern that he was being exploited by his parents. Rumors of exploitation were furthered when the Lemoine family opened La Ferme de Jordy (Jordy's Farm), a children's tourist attraction which was a financial failure. Jordy insisted that the farm was his idea. After the farm's failure, the French government banned Jordy's music from radio and television to protect him from exploitation. In 1996 Jordy's parents divorced. He then returned to school.
As a teenager, Jordy appeared on the second season of the French television show La Ferme Célébrités 2 on April 30, 2005, his first public appearance in almost ten years. He was the show's final winner on June 28, 2005. On February 28, 2006 he released his first new single in 12 years, "Je t'apprendrai" and began performing in the band Jordy & the Dixies.
Jordy made an appearance in the film Look Who's Talking Now. As the credits roll at the end of the movie, a musical number is played with Jordy and the two young co-stars of the movie, with Jordy singing "It's Christmas, C'est Noel". Jordy would have been about 5 to 6 at the time. He appears on the rooftop of a home with Santa and when Santa cannot fit down the chimney Jordy goes in his place. The song was written by his father.
