Lori Harvey is easily one of the most admired women in the game. The social media hottie has had her pick how some of hip-hop and Hollywood’s leading men. Eventually, she decided on 2020’s “Sexiest Man Alive,” according to People Magazine, Creed star Michael B Jordan. The pair have been goals all over social media, with everyone singing their praises and admiring their love. However, one person not entirely impressed by Jordan is Lori’s adopted father, Steve Harvey. Although Harvey has admitted this is the first time she’s been happy, he’s not quite completely impressed with the physical. His credentials for her ideal man are more profound than a ‘sexiest man alive’ list, and he recently opened up on what defined the right guy for his daughter.
Michael B Jordan and Lori Harvey went public with their relationship in January of this year. With it, they drew a lot of attention as people began to compare Jordan to some of Lori’s famous ex’s from Diddy to Future, Justin Combs, and more. Future famously called Jordan a simp and insinuated that his ex would be back, but to date, it appears Lori and her “Black Panther” boo are going strong. Jordan goes above and beyond for his lady; case in point, Valentine’s Day this year, where they took social media by storm with a handful of images of them celebrating their love at a beautiful aquarium dinner.
Lori has described her man as “so sweet” and “very attentive.” “He listens to me and the things that I say that I want, and he really makes an effort.” She said that “Valentine’s Day, birthdays, all that!” but goes on to emphasize, “it’s the little things, the everyday things that I think really is what makes him special like he just listens to me when I talk.” While discussing his status as the sexiest man alive, Jordan told People, “It’s a cool feeling.”
Steve Harvey was asked how he felt about his step-daughter dating Jordan. He discusses how initially he was off-put by Jordan, considering Lori’s track record of guys.
He went on to express that once he got to know him, he realized Jordan was genuine. He says that Lori and Michael’s mothers are close, which helped reassure him as well since his wife, Majorie, was able to vouch for him.
Harvey also was really understanding of how Hollywood relationships can work and feels that Lori and Jordan are doing really well by those standards.
Harvey told People, “He’s…I mean…like…it threw me off at first because he was so kind. You know, I figure, ‘OK, this is the game, right?’ But it wasn’t, man, this dude was sincere, and he’s proven to be a really, really good, good guy. I’m pulling for him, you know, for them.” When asked about him being ranked the “sexiest man alive,” Harvey said, “He’s not the sexiest man alive to me, at all. I haven’t seen it. I haven’t seen anything sexy yet.” He went on to say, “But I’m a father. I don’t give a damn if you [are] cute. I just want somebody to treat my princess the way I treat her.”
