Lori Harvey, the stepdaughter of actor and comedian, Steve Harvey, is a model and skincare entrepreneur who is quiet and reserved by nature. She is the ex-girlfriend of big-name men in entertainment such as Trey Songz, Diddy, and Future. Currently, she is dating Michael B. Jordan, 33, and in some instances, she is something else worth noting: the bigger person.
Lori Harvey especially showed that she is the bigger person with how she responded or did not respond, to her ex-boyfriend, Future, when he dissed her in the song, Maybach, with 42 Dugg, which was released in May 2021.
“Tell Steve Harvey I don’t want her,” Future raps in the second verse of the song.
In a June interview with Bustle, Lori Harvey explained why she did not extend any response to her ex-boyfriend’s diss, or any other negativity for that matter.
“I think they get from me that I try to just not let any type of negativity or rumors or anything like that make me stoop down to that level and go back and forth with it or whatever,” said Harvey. “I just try to stay up here and take the high road in every situation.”
Harvey added that the family has a joke about her: if you have an issue with the 24-year-old, handle it yourself because she’s not going to do anything. In other words, homegirl is unbothered.
An Ambitious Career Woman Too!
Beyond being the bigger person and dating Jordan, Lori Harvey is currently working on growing her career.
She is currently developing a skincare line that is based on her discoveries about her own sensitive skin. But she does not plan to stop there.
“I definitely want to have my hand in everything at some point. I think Rihanna has done an amazing job and laid some really great groundwork. I love how she’s kind of done everything and done it so, so well,” Harvey told Bustle. “I think I’ll definitely dabble in different parts of the beauty and fashion industry.”
Harvey is the bigger person in negative situations, especially when dealing with exes, and has ambitious career goals. Because of these things, she is a Royal Woman worth watching.
