Lori Harvey shuts down breakup rumors in the cutest way!
The stunning model received her famous surname after comedian Steve Harvey adopted her after marrying her mother, Marjorie Harvey. Now, the caramel-toned beauty is one of the ‘Family Feud’ star’s most recognized children.
When she’s not turning heads on red carpets, the 26-year-old is making headlines in her relationships. Following her highly publicized split from Michael B. Jordan, fans wondered if her new man, Damson Idris, would be another failed romance.
Here’s what the bombshell had to say about her lover!
Believe it or not, Lori Harvey and Damson Idris are here to stay
Following the early days of her relationship with the ‘Snowfall’ star, the public doubted the affection between the lovebirds. After being surrounded by breakup rumours, the SKN by LH founder finally addressed the situation.
In an Instagram Story update, the Memphis native shared a sweet photo of her boyfriend wearing an all-black ensemble. The outfit consisted of a sweater designed with the American flag paired with pants and matching black shades.
Idris was captured in the driver’s seat of a black car with the hood down, smiling at his girlfriend, who took the adorable photo. “MY FINE ASS UBER DRIVER,” the media personality captioned the snap alongside a ROTFL and heart-eye emojis.
This simple message confirmed that there were no problems in the couple’s paradise despite speculation about their separation. By reports, the entrepreneur was rumored to have split from the actor after a three-month fling. Their alleged breakup was shared by Harvey’s unnamed friend, who told sources that the duo’s chemistry had died down.
“They were dating, and it was great, but they’re not together like that anymore,” the insider shared. The individual explained that the couple separated on mutual terms, implying that their separation stemmed from different life goals. “There’s no beef, no cheating, nothing like that. They’re just doing their own thing right now,” the source said.
Although the lovebirds haven’t confirmed their rumored split, fans mourned the end of their relationship on social media. Others weren’t quick to believe the news, with a few saying the pair were spotted attending SZA’s recent concert as part of it.
Harvey and Idris first confirmed their relationship in January at the track alum’s 26th birthday party. For the event, the Hollywood sensation reportedly posted a photo of himself kissing the socialite on the cheek and captioned it “Happy Birthday Nunu.”
Ahead of the anniversary tribute, the “Outside the Wire” star and media personality sparked relationship rumors in December 2022 after the artists were spotted attending a dinner party in West Hollywood.
The outing marked the first time the socialite had been romantically linked to another man after ending her relationship with the ‘Black Panther’ star. Harvey and Jordan split after a two-year romance in June 2022.
Fans expressed their suspicions of the power couple after their red carpet debut
Last month, the lovebirds suffered a similar fate from fans doubting their romance. Fans on social media turned into a sleuthing platform after Harvey and Idris first appeared on the red carpet. The lovebirds stepped out in their best gear to attend the sixth-season premiere of “Snowfall.”
However, images and clips of their red carpet debut raised eyebrows as the duo apparently lacked chemistry. Naturally, the buzz died down on Twitter as fans shared various reactions to the couple’s awkward moments.
Video from the event showed the pair keeping a bit of a distance from each other as they posed for photos, looking like two co-workers trying not to start dating rumors.
“They stand like, if it doesn’t work, they can crop the image and keep it,” teased basketball player Kofi Joseph, prompting others to point out the apparent lack of chemistry in the footage.
“Why is Damson holding Lori as a rental he has to return after the event?” another person wondered while a third chimed in: ‘Why does all her relationships seem like ‘business savvy’ like when is she going to find true love? I could be wrong.
Those criticisms didn’t go unnoticed when Harvey responded to the couple’s awkward pose under a fan’s post. The 26-year-old claimed she might have warned Idris not to stand near her because she was wearing body makeup and didn’t want to mess up her costume.
