June 2021 - Lori Harvey opens up about her relationship with Jordan
During an interview with Bustle, Lori spoke about the first time she met her now-boyfriend and explained the reasoning behind her low-key approach to fame.
"We met actually a few years ago,” Harvey said when asked about her first encounter with the Hollywood actor.
"We had some mutual friends. I think we met out, just in passing." when asked about how she felt when they first met, Lori giggled, "I was like, ‘He’s cute!’"
Lori said that both her and Jordan - who she later described as "super humble" - are "very private people naturally," and said they often discuss how much of their relationship they want to share with the world.
"So we just decide, if we take a picture or whatever it is, do you want to post this? Do we not? We have a conversation about it, like, ‘You want to post this or we keep this to ourselves?’"
"We know there are people that love and support us and want to see us," she added. "So [we want to] give just enough, but keep the majority of it just for us. We’re trying to find a balance."
Lori revealed that her family took to Jordan straight away, saying, "I knew they were going to love him, which they did. [The introduction] was good. It was easy."
April 2021 - Michael B. Jordan says he's "extremely happy" with Lori Harvey.
in a new interview with People, Michael B. Jordan revealed why he feels ready to share his love life with his fans.
'I am extremely happy,' the notoriously private actor, 34, told the publication.
Jordan continued: '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.'
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.'
March 2021 - Steve Harvey gushes over Michael B. Jordan

"This guy is such a good guy, man," he continued, "He is one of the nicest guys, man. I've met his father. I've set up with him, we've talked for hours. I just can't find nothin' wrong with him.
"Between me and you, I'm hoping this lasts 'cause this is a really, really good guy, man. I can't whoop him. Most guys, I say I can jump on 'em and take 'em out, but he just looks like a real ass-whoopin' in the making. So I'm just hoping they make it."
