While the rest of us impatiently wait out the worst cuffing season in history, Lori Harvey and Michael B. Jordan are cozying up and making us all jealous. The new couple is making a strong early case for biggest celebrity hookup of 2021. Here’s everything we know about Lori Harvey and Michael B. Jordan, from their earliest meeting to now:
They got together around Thanksgiving 2020.
TMZ spotted Jordan in Atlanta at the end of November 2020, when rumors started swirling that he was seeing Harvey. The Sun caught them together in Salt Lake City for New Year’s Eve. We’re pretty sure that’s where they had the photoshoot that led to…
They went public on January 10, 2021.
The model and the Black Panther star made things public just after the new year, posting some pictures to Instagram. In his, they embrace among the holiday lights; in hers, we get a smile. As the kids say, new celeb couple just dropped!
They spent her birthday together.
Lori turned 24 in the snow, showered with affection (and snowflakes) by her boyfriend. The moment was posted for posterity along with a video showing the two of them playing around.
“I like this one. I still got my eye on him,” Lori Harvey’s dad, author, and entertainer Steve Harvey said on The Steve Harvey Morning Show. “I mean, I like him, but like I say to all of ’em, ‘I might like you, I might approve of you, but I got a thumb-size section of my heart filled with nothing but pure hatred for your ass. Just in case I need it.’
“All I gotta do is click a switch and I can hate your ass,” he added, joking but not, in that way dads do.
These days things are looking hella official.
In late January the couple jetted off to St. Bart’s, where they were spotted riding wave runners and hanging out on a yacht (with her parents). On January 24, Jordan posted a couple thirst traps to the ’gram and credited Harvey for taking the photos. She commented “mine” with the tongue emoji, and he replied with a smiley face. If that doesn’t scream “This is for real,” we don’t know what does.
