Is Lori Harvey adopted? Truth behind 23-year-old model's biological dad and her relationship with Steve Harvey
Is Lori Harvey dating Michael B Jordan? The 33-year-old ‘Black Panther’ actor was captured with the 23-year-old daughter of Steve Harvey and now, rumors seem to be swirling around about the possibility of a romance. In photos obtained by TMZ, the two were snapped stepping out of a flight from Los Angeles on Thanksgiving Eve, Wednesday, November 25, according to our earlier report.
Sporting face masks and hoodies, the duo got down in her hometown of Atlanta, Georgia, and drove off in a truck waiting for them on the tarmac. No sooner were the pictures made public, fans couldn't stop wondering what was cooking between the two separated by a 10-year age gap. Many social media users couldn't help but look up Lori's dating history and others are still wondering who she is.
Modeling since the age of three, Lori stands at 5’3” with a petite frame and has charted her own path to success in the world of glam and glitz. She is registered to top model agencies like LA Models and Select Model Management in Europe. Born on January 13, 1997, to Marjorie Harvey, it's unclear who is her biological father as there is no mention of him.
Before tying the knot with Steve, her mother Marjorie was married to Jim Townsend — who was pardoned by former President Barack Obama in 2017 after he was given life imprisonment for a cocaine scandal.
Marjorie first met Steve at his stand-up show and was late. While making her way to one of the front seats, Steve stopped mid-sentence and kept looking at her. Enchanted by her, he whispered to the crowd, “I'm sorry, I don't know who this is, but I'm going to marry her.” According to Marjorie, "he just disappeared" after that. At that time, Steve was a married man.
In 2005, their paths crossed again and two years later, they exchanged vows. From his first marriage, he has three children — 38-year-old Karli, 38-year-old Brandi and 29-year-old Broderick Jr — and from his second marriage to Mary Shackelford, Harvey has another son, 23-year-old Wynton. Meanwhile, Marjorie had three kids — 22-year-old Lori, 28-year-old Jason and 32-year-old Morgan, all of whom Steve adopted later.
In an interview when Steve was asked about Lori's love life — who has dated rapper Future and Sean “Diddy” Combs in the past — he said, “I don’t know nothing about it.”
Even though Steve is Lori's stepfather, she decided to take his surname. In an old Instagram post, she showered love on him saying, “Happpyyyyy Birthdayyyyy to the coolest, most hardworking, caring and loving dad in the world! Thank you for being everything that you are. You’re one of a kind, I love you to the moon and back.” She also has a lovely bond with her mom and once confessed that she talks to her mom close to 20 times every day on the phone.
