By Ryan Naumann

Future’s ex-girlfriend Lori Harvey was spotted getting close with Akon’s brother Abou "Bu" Thiam.

The Shade Room broke the story, a fan claims to have seen Lori with Abou while hanging out in a Miami nightclub. Abou, who lives in Atlanta, is a uber-successful record executive. Abou has also been managing Kanye West’s career for a bit.

In the short clip posted online, it appears Lori is standing in front of Abou while he holds onto her inside the club.

The tipster told The Shade Room, “I was in Miami for my homegirl’s birthday weekend and I ain’t here to bust her out, but let’s just say my homegirl’s trip was paid for by a man with fundssss okay! So it didn’t surprise me that the company around us was a lil’ “upper echelon” as Ms. Nicki Minaj would say.”

They added, “I was exchanging phone numbers (cuz I’m trying to get a baller of my own) when I see Lori Harvey all boo’d up with some guy. Anyway, they say he go by Bu, and he’s Kanye’s manager. "


They added, "Well, Bu looked like he could be Lori’s new boo but I couldn’t say for sure. All I know is they were real close all hugged up. I caught them on video real quick. I'm riskin' my birkin for y'all Shade Room!.”

As The Blast previously reported, Lori recently split with Future after dating for several months. The two shocked the world when they stopped following each other on social media. Since the split, Lori has stayed busy hanging out with friends, posing for selfies and partying on a yacht. The 23-year-old model has been staying in the gym and the results are showing.


Lori stayed by Future’s side despite his ongoing baby mama drama. During the romance, Future battled it out with two separate women in court. The first paternity lawsuit was brought by a Florida woman named Eliza Reign.

Future dragged his feet for several months before finally submitting to a DNA test. The results showed he was indeed the father to baby Reign.

The two have been battling it out over child support ever since. Eliza believed Future should pay around $53,000 a month in child support. Future proposed a $1,000 a month payment but Eliza rejected that.


A judge recently recommended Future pay $3,200 a month in child support. Eliza’s lawyer says they will be fighting that recommendation.

The second case was brought by a Texas woman named Cindy Parker. At one point, Cindy accused the rapper of offering her hush money to stay quiet about the situation.

Future eventually responded to Cindy's paternity lawsuit. Days later, Cindy quietly dismissed the entire case. All signs point to a settlement being reached outside of court in the case.
