“B” for “Bae”: Michael B. Jordan Makes Romance Instagram Official, But Who Is His Boo?

today12 January 2021


Can’t decide which is worse: the idea that there may be aliens in KL or the fact that actor Michael B. Jordan is now off the market.



That’s right! 33-year-old Michael Bakari Jordan has made his relationship with 24-year-old Lori Harvey Instagram official. You know what that means: it’s really serious. While rumours of the pair dating have been circulating for the last few months (they were spotted coming off a plane in Salt Lake City a day before New Year’s Eve), they’ve finally acknowledged their relationship publically with both Jordan and Harvey took to their social media accounts to post intimate pictures. Jordan’s images were grainy shots of himself and Harvey embracing. Meanwhile, Harvey shared two Polaroid photos: one of which he kissed her on the cheek, and another in which they posed in front of a large Christmas tree.

Last year, upon being awarded the title of Sexiest Man Alive, Jordan was quoted by PEOPLE  as saying that what he looked for in a partner was…


“A sense of humor, true understanding, because (an actor’s) life is not conducive to a relationship — it’s really not. Somebody that’s nurturing. I’ve got a list.”


Well, how exactly does Lori Harvey fit on that list? Here are 5 facts about the ‘Creed’ stars new girl.


1. She’s got a famous family: including Stepdad Steve Harvey.

Life in the limelight is nothing new for Lori Harvey, who happens to be the stepdaughter of Steve Harvey. When Lori was around the age of 10, her fashion blogger mother Majorie Bridges (now Harvey) married the comedian and host. The union meant an extension to their brood as Lori has two siblings while Steve Harvey has three children from a previous marriage. Of her famous parentals, she shared:


“My parents did a good job of keeping us out of the spotlight and letting us have a normal childhood so we could be kids and not live life under a microscope. They let us decide if we wanted to be in the industry.”



2. She models: but you may have seen her in Normani’s ‘Motivation’ video.

The 24-year-old has made a name for herself on her own terms. The wildly successfully model broke the status quo in modelling (being a POC and being 160cm) and has travelled the world to pose for fashion houses such as Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel, Hermès and more. She’s even walked the runways at Paris and Milan fashion weeks. Makeup legend Pat McGrath has even claimed Harvey as her muse.

On top of that, she and Fifth Harmoni’s Normani are BFFs and spend quite a bit of time together. Harvey has even appeared in the singers ‘Motivation’ video.



3. She’s an equestrian: with dreams of being a professional in the sport.

Born in Memphis, Tenessee but having grown up in Atlanta and Chicago, Harvey spent a lot of time on a horse – and she was darned good at it. Through her teens, Harvey managed to rack up multiple awards for showjumping. She was so good, she was considered a champion rider! However, despite wanting to be a professional in the sport, her dreams were dashed following an accident which resulted in a severe back injury and a torn MCL.


“I wanted to be a professional equestrian. But I got injured badly a few years ago, so now I only ride leisurely.”



4. She’s dated quite a few A-Listers – including Trey Songz, P. Diddy and Future.

Michael B Jordan isn’t the only famous name that the beautiful and talented young lady has been linked to. Way back in 2018, Harvey was said to be dating R&B singer Trey Songz. Then in 2019, Harvey was seen getting cosy with P. Diddy (yes, The Puff Daddy). The pair were spotted together on numerous occasions (Italy, Mexico, New York City and Atlanta) but never publically confirmed their romance. They are said to have split up, however, sometime in October 2019, before she was seen with ‘Mask Off’ rapper Future.
