The insider told the publication, "Michael and Lori are both completely heartbroken. They still love each other." The source continues, suggesting that the cause of the split was the inability of one party to commit long term.

"Michael matured a lot over the course of their relationship and was ready to commit for the long term," the source added. "He let down his guard with her, opening up emotionally in a romantic relationship for the first time. They had great times together and brought out the best in each other."

Neither party has publicly confirmed or denied the breakup as of this writing but it is worthy to note that Lori has already removed all photos of her and the "Black Panther" actor from her Instagram page.

When asked how he and Lori were dealing with the breakup, the "Family Feud" host said, “I feel fine. I’m fine…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."

Steve expressed sympathy for the couple, acknowledging that it is difficult to sustain relationships in the spotlight.

"Look, as long as everybody can walk away in peace, be friends…I ain’t heard nobody say they busted no windows or nothing," he said.

The "Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man" author noted that he wasn't bothered about what goes on in his daughter's relationship as long as there's no domestic violence involved.

The 'Family Feud' Host Believes Jordan Is Still A 'Cool Guy'

Although things are over between Lori and Jordan, Steve still has some love for the "Just Mercy" actor. In his words: "He’s still a cool guy…from what I know. It’s a breakup. I’m pretty sure they’ll be fine. People break up all the time."

Also, in a cryptic Twitter post, Steve shared a picture of a quote that read, "Love yourself my g," and many can't help but think it's directed at Jordan.

Harvey, who has been married three times, used his daughter's breakup to reflect on his two failed marriages and commended her method of breaking up via social media.
