Lori Harvey has been spotted in the warm arms of yet another one of Hollywood’s handsome bachelors. Damson Idris, star of FX’s hit drama “Snowfall” wished Harvey a happy birthday earlier today via Instagram. Idris shared a picture of him and Harvey snuggled closely together with Idris kissing Harvey on the cheek. To add to the intimacy of the photo, Idris typed “Happy Birthday Nunu <3” in the corner of the post. Rumors of the two being in a relationship began circulating in December 2021. Although Idris did not confirm his relationship status with Harvey, his fans have flooded TikTok and Twitter stating their opinions of the possibility of the two being together. Comments like “I can’t believe she’s dating my man.” or “Damson Idris and Lori Harvey? I just fell to my knees.” are becoming very common, with many fans upset that their celebrity crush (Idris) is now possibly off of the market.
Model and socialite, Harvey has had a long history of dating some of the most desired men in Hollywood. Harvey entered the public eye when Grammy-winning rapper, Future posted her on his Instagram page in late 2019. The two were rumored to have dated from late 2019 to mid-2020 (despite a 13-year age gap). Future and Harvey’s relationship ended on a sour note, with Future dissing Harvey in the song “Maybach” with 42 Dugg. Future dissed Harvey saying “Tell Steve Harvey I don’t want her” in the song, referring to Harvey’s adoptive father, iconic comedian: Steve Harvey.
In 2021, Harvey popped out with famously good-looking actor Michael B. Jordan (Black Panther, Creed franchise). The announcement of this relationship was met with a similar response to Harvey’s dating rumors with Idris – comedically bitter fans and A LOT of comments. Harvey and Jordan’s relationship lasted more than a year before their breakup in 2022. Fans speculated that Harvey was opposed to Jordan’s aspirations to settle down and get married, leading to the split. Many people took to social media to say that their relationship was fake and for publicity only to give them both a more positive image in the love department.
Other famous men that Harvey has been rumored to have dated include Trey Songz, Diddy, and Diddy’s son Justin Combs.
Harvey has continued to be criticized for “homie hopping” around Hollywood because of her star-studded dating history. These criticisms are usually only directed toward women, paying no attention to male celebrities who have dated many other women (I mean c’mon, Future has eight baby mamas!). Harvey seems to be prospering despite the criticism, keeping the company of one of the most handsome men in modern-day Hollywood. Will these two become the new poster kids for couples goals? Guess we’ll have to wait and see.
