Steve Harvey and Michael B. Jordan discuss Lori Harvey
Michael B. Jordan may have gotten the best stamp of approval anyone has ever received from an overprotective dad for dating his daughter. The ‘Creed 3’ star interviewed his *future* father-in-law, Steve Harvey, for the latest cover of Paper Magazine to discuss the ‘Family Feud’ host’s iconic fashion style. But at the end of the interview, Harvey swapped roles with the actor to, of course, inquire about Jordan’s relationship with Harvey’s daughter, Lori.
After Jordan thanked Harvey for talking to him, the cover star only had one last question for Jordan, and his reaction was a lot lighter than you might think. “You call me OG, I call you young soldier. We text all the time,” Harvey begins. “I’m proud of you as a younger brother, man, what you’ve done. So it would be fitting to end this interview with me by asking you a question… do you like Lori Harvey?” And Jordan hits him back with the only proper response: “Oh, man. I know that. Sure,” he says, earning Harvey’s respect.
It’s no surprise that Harvey gave his blessing to Jordan and his daughter’s relationship. Last year, the game show host stopped by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and joked that he tried to play hard for the actor, but Jordan eventually won him over. “This guy is such a great guy,” he told DeGeneres. “He’s one of the nicest guys. I can’t find anything wrong with him.” Since then, Jordan has spent a lot of time with the Harveys, even celebrating Thanksgiving with his girlfriend’s family last year.
