Early life edit

Lori Harvey is the daughter of Marjorie Harvey (née Bridges).[1][2] The identity of her biological father is not public knowledge.[3] In 2007, her mother married comedian Steve Harvey, who later adopted her.[4][5] She was born in Memphis, Tennessee, and grew up in Atlanta, Georgia.[6] Harvey was a competitive equestrian, and aspired to compete at the Olympic Games.[7] She later attended college in Florida, before dropping out due to an injury, which prevented her from continuing her work as an equestrian.[8]

Career edit

In 2015, she began a career in modeling,[9] signing modeling contracts with LA Model Management agency in the United States, and Select Model Management in Europe.[10] Harvey has walked the runway for Dolce & Gabbana's 2017 Spring/Summer collection;[11] and has appeared in campaigns for Dolce & Gabbana,[12] Michael Kors,[13] Valentino,[14] Pat McGrath's Beauty Lab,[15] and Burberry.[16] In 2019, Harvey made a cameo in the music video for "Motivation" by singer Normani.[17][18] She has also been featured on the covers of Instagram's The Zine[19] and Wonderland.[20]

In 2021, she launched the skincare brand SKN by LH.[21] That same year, she collaborated on a clothing collection with the company Naked Wardrobe.[22] In May 2022, Harvey posted a video on TikTok explaining her weight loss, which included a daily 1200-Calorie diet leading up to the Met Gala. The video faced criticism from health experts who warned of the potential dangers that participating in the diet could cause someone.[23][24] In June 2022, Kim Kardashian faced backlash after she announced the launch of a skincare line named SKKN by Kim, which some Twitter users felt was too similar to Harvey's company name.[25] The following month, it was announced that Harvey signed a modeling contract with IMG Models and William Morris Endeavor (WME).[26]

In 2023, Harvey co-starred in the music video for Usher's single "Glu".[27][28]

Personal life edit

She has close friendships with Jordyn Woods, Normani, Winnie Harlow, and Ryan Destiny, according to Essence.[29]

Relationships edit

In January 2016, she began dating Dutch footballer Memphis Depay. They were engaged in June 2017[30] and separated by 2018.[31]

Following the end of her engagement to Depay, Harvey was briefly linked to R&B singer Trey Songz. She was also linked with the rapper Future; the pair confirmed their relationship in January 2020, and broke up in August of that year.[32] Future later took aim at Harvey on his featured verse on the song "Maybach" by 42 Dugg, with the lyrics "Magic City, I'm the owner. Tell Steve Harvey, I don't want her".[33]

In November 2020, Harvey began dating actor Michael B. Jordan.[34] In June 2022, it was reported that the couple had ended their relationship.[35]

In January 2023, Harvey confirmed that she was dating actor Damson Idris; the two broke up in November 2023, and remain friends.[36][37]

Legal issues edit

In October 2019, Harvey was arrested for fleeing the scene of a collision, according to the Beverly Hills Police Department.[38] In January 2020, a spokesperson from the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office confirmed to People, that she was charged with two misdemeanors, including one count of resisting, obstructing a police officer and one count of hit and run resulting in property damage.[39] In December 2020, it was reported by TMZ, that she had accepted a plea deal, and was sentenced to 2 years of probation.[40]
