Michael B. Jordan is a well-known actor and producer. Up until recently, he has kept his relationships private, but not any longer. He is gushing over Lori Harvey. The Black Panther star said it is time for him to let others know how happy he is with Lori. He added that both of them are very happy.
Timeline of Michael B. and Lori's Relationship
The couple first started seeing each other around Thanksgiving 2020, according to TMZ who spotted Jordan and Lori flying from Los Angeles into Atlanta to visit Lori's parents. After then, rumors started that Jordan, 34, was dating Harvey, 24. The Sun also saw them together in Salt Lake City on New Year’s Eve. However, it was not until January 10, 2021 that they went public with their relationship. Both of them began posting photos and sweet words to each other on their Instagram pages.
Jordan spent the day with Lori on her 24th birthday on January 13. Of course, they shared photos of them playing around in the snow in Utah.
In late January, the couple was spending more time together. Jordan joined his new girlfriend and her parents on a yacht in St. Bart’s. On February 7, the couple watched the Super Bowl together, and Lori congratulated Michael on his commercial. He was Amazon's Alexa reading a book to a woman in a bubble bath.
Harvey celebrated Jordan's 34th birthday with him on February 9, and she told him she loves him. On Valentine's Day, Jordan surprised Harvey by renting out an entire aquarium for a private tour of seeing sea turtles and enjoying a romantic dinner with just the two of them in the aquarium. If that wasn't enough, when they returned home Lori was surprised again. This time it was because of the dozens and dozens of roses, candles, and a bubble bath.
Reactions about the Relationship
Lori's father, Steve Harvey, approves of the relationship. Of course, he approved of the string of Lori's other relationships also. He said about Jordan on his morning talk show, “I like this one. I still got my eye on him.”
Jordan's family likes Lori. The members of the family agree that Lori is everything Michael could have hoped for because she is lovely, respectful, and fits in perfectly.
Lori's friends approve of the couple's relationship. They think Michael is great for her. They admit things have gotten serious at a rapid pace, but there have been no red flags. Friends of the model and television personality say the couple is totally invested, committed, and very happy.
About Michael B. Jordan
Michael's father's name is Michael A. Jordan. So, it stands to reason that the son's name is Michael B. Jordan. Besides, his name distinguishes him from the older iconic basketball player, Michael Jordan.
Michael B. had a great year in 2020 not only because he began dating Lori, but also because other wonderful things happened for him. He was named one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World by Time magazine. In the same year, he was also named People's Sexiest Man Alive. In 2020, he ranked #15 of the 25 Greatest Actors of the 21st Century by The New York Times.
Jordan has been so private until now that there is no record of him being in a relationship with anyone else. Lori's dating history has been quite different.
About Lori Harvey
Actually, Lori is the step-daughter of Steve Harvey, but she has his last name because Steve adopted his wife's three children: Morgan, Jason, and Lori. The youngest daughter is a runway model and an Instagram model with over 2 million followers.
Before becoming a model, Lori dreamed of competing in the Olympics as an equestrian. She had a natural talent for the sport and even won numerous awards. Unfortunately, she tore her MCL and broke her back during training one day. After that, she gave up the sport and her dream to compete professionally.
While there has been absolutely nothing about Jordan's previous relationships, there has been a lot of publicity about Harvey's many relationships, including one engagement. All of her boyfriends have been celebrities and rappers. Some of them cannot be confirmed because the time with them was so short. However, here is the list of the men Lori has been in a relationship with based on her Instagram postings.
- 2017 - Lori became engaged to Dutch soccer player Memphis Depay in June 2017. They called off the engagement in 2018.
- 2018 - For only a few months, Lori dated Justin Combs, Sean "Diddy" Combs' rapper son.
- 2018 - After Justin, Lori reportedly dated rapper Trey Songz. They were seen out on some dinner dates for only a few months.
- 2019 - Even though Sean Combs is 27 years older than Lori and the father of one of Lori's previous boyfriends, they were rumored to have been in a relationship that ended in October 2019.
- 2020 - In January 2020, Lori posted a few stories on Instagram about her birthday celebrations in Jamaica with rapper Future. She posted a photo with the two of them kissing as a way to make their relationship official. By the summer of 2020, they had parted ways.
- 2020 - In November around Thanksgiving, Lori began dating Michael B. Jordan, not a rapper, but an iconic actor and producer. So far, they are happy together. As is Lori's custom, she is posting plenty of Instagram photos about their relationships. For the first time, Jordan is doing the same.

Cheryl, you are probably right. Lori Harvey has been involved in a lot of relationships that were made public. None of them have lasted long.

My opinion is that when the relationships become sensationalized they will not last long.
