While the rest of us impatiently waited out the worst cuffing season in history, Lori Harvey and Michael B. Jordan were cozying up and making us all jealous. The couple made a strong early case for the biggest celebrity hookup of 2021, and they’re still going strong as we head into 2022. Here’s everything we know about Lori Harvey and Michael B. Jordan, from their earliest meeting to now:
November 2020: TMZ spots Jordan in Atlanta at the end of November 2020, when rumors started swirling that he was seeing Harvey. The Sun catches them together in Salt Lake City for New Year’s Eve. We’re pretty sure that’s where they had the photo shoot that led to…
January 2021: The model and the Black Panther star make things public just after the new year, posting some pictures on Instagram. In his, they embrace among the holiday lights; in hers, we got a smile. As the kids say, a new celeb couple just dropped.
Just a few days later, Lori Harvey turned 24 in the snow and was 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.
Not long after, they got the Steve Harvey stamp of approval. “I like this one. I still got my eye on him,” Lori Harvey’s dad 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.’
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.
