Steve Harvey wishes Michael B. Jordan well following his divorce from Lori Harvey. Lori's father confirmed the split between his daughter and the Creed star on The Steve Harvey Morning Show on June 6. When asked how he felt about the breakup, Steve remarked,
“I heard about it, I wish them well. I’m team Lori, 1,000 percent. She’s my daughter. I love her. I support her.”
The Judge Steve Harvey star explained that dating in public was difficult for Lori, 25, and Jordan, 35, but their relationship ended happily.
Steve also admitted that he still has feelings for the Black Panther actor.
“He’s still a cool guy, you know, from what I know. It’s a breakup. I’m pretty sure they’ll be fine, people break up all the time.”
A source close to the former couple confirmed their split after dating for a year and a half.
Steve Harvey confirms breakup of daughter Lori and Michael B Jordan
On The Steve Harvey Morning Show episode aired on June 6, Steve Harvey addressed Lori Harvey and Michael B. Jordan's breakup, first giving a serious take on their romantic journey coming to an end, then cracking a few laughs about it.
Steve Harvey had the following to say about the former:
I still gotta go to work...I still gotta take care of my family. I'm team Lori, 1000 percent, She's my daughter. I love her, I support her."
"It's hard to be young and in the limelight and have a successful relationship. Look, as long as everybody can walk away in peace, be friends … I ain't heard nobody say they busted no windows or nothing."
However, in early May, Jordan was regarded as a "really respectable" guy by Steve Harvey, and he expressed his support for the Black Panther actor and his daughter.
Unfortunately, their romantic relationship did not work out, even though they supposedly "still adore each other."
