Michael B. Jordan dished to People magazine about the status of his relationship to Lori Harvey, openly posting photos of them together since early this year.
This is the first time Jordan has been public about his love life, telling the magazine that it finally felt like time to celebrate his love.
34-year-old Jordan said, “I’m still private, and I want to protect that, but it just felt like it was a moment of just wanting to put it out there and move on. I am extremely happy.”
He added, “I think when you get older, you feel more comfortable about the [public nature] of the business that we’re in. So for me, it was a moment to, I guess, take ownership of that and then get back to work.”
Jordan, well known for his role as Erik Killmonger in Black Panther and Apollo Creed’s son in the Creed films, was first spotted with Harvey stepping off a plane together in Atlanta over Thanksgiving and heading to the ski slopes in Utah in December. A few days after confirming their relationship on social media, they headed off to a romantic getaway in the Caribbean.
A source told the magazine, “they have gotten serious quickly. It’s obvious that they don’t want to be apart. When they don’t travel together, Lori spends a lot of time in Los Angeles with Michael.” She has been spending more time in California with Jordan.
24-year-old Harvey is the stepdaughter of Family Feud host Steve Harvey. Steve said of Jordan, “I like him. I’m pulling for him.”
