Steve Harvey 'uncomfortable' with steamy pic of daughter Lori sitting on Michael B Jordan's lap
Steve Harvey admitted he's a bit "uncomfortable" with a recent photo of stepdaughter Lori with 'Black Panther' star Michael B Jordan.
The veteran comedian and TV host, 65, reacted to a snap of his daughter wearing a short skirt while sitting on Jordan's lap during the Tuesday, January 18 episode of the 'Ellen DeGeneres Show'. Lori is the daughter of Harvey's third wife Marjorie, who he married in 2007. Lori and Jordan were first rumored to be dating in November after the pair was spotted in her native Atlanta town for Thanksgiving. They later flew to Salt Lake City to celebrate New Year's Eve together.
"I've never seen that picture before," Harvey said as Ellen displayed the image on her eponymous show. "I'm very uncomfortable with that picture, right now. Not really feeling that picture," he added. Lori, 25, wore a body-hugging dress on New Year's Eve, when she sparked rumors she's pregnant after calling Jordan, 34, her "baby daddy" in a brief video of them posing in the mirror. The rumors were further fueled after she appeared to cover her stomach in a loose brown halter neck dress that night, as she sat on her boyfriend's lap and kissed him in a series of romantic photos. She captioned the post, "Happy New Year."
Lori and Jordan shared photos from their one-year anniversary dinner last November, posting several snaps of themselves getting cozy on the special day. In one of the snaps, Lori is kissing her boyfriend's cheek while Jordan is making a funny face. Another shot shows the actor gazing at the camera while his girlfriend rests her head on his shoulder. The 'Creed' star captioned the pic, "It's been a year crazy!!" A third photo shows Lori leaning in for another kiss as Jordan sticks his tongue out.
Harvey previously gave his two cents on his stepdaughter's new relationship during an appearance on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' in February. “First of all, let’s be clear about something. He is a nice guy," Harvey told Kimmel. “I like him. I’m pulling for him.”
Jordan and Lori officially confirmed their relationship on Instagram last year. MEAWW previously reported how Michael B Jordan rented an entire aquarium for Lori on their first Valentine's Day. "My baby rented out the aquarium so we could do a private tour and see the turtles and then we walked into this," Lori wrote captioning the video that showed a cozy, intimate space strewn with roses and exotic blooms enclosed by glass walls of the aquarium. Fish provided a backdrop to the six-course meal with items like 'Fluke Sashimi with Dried Miso', 'Skirt steak with Yuzu Honey truffle' and 'Caramel brownie' among others dishes. Nobu catered their seafood-themed romantic meal for two.
The gesture appeared to have won Harvey's approval, who said it was "really nice." He added, “I’m happy for him. He’s a great guy. I met his father and everything, but that was a lot. I don’t know where he’s going from here, so hopefully, maybe he’ll make Creed 4, 5, and 6.”
