Harvey’s Failure To Commit Cost Her A Lifelong Relationship With Michael B. Jordan
In June, The Blast revealed that Harvey’s heavily publicized relationship with Jordan ended. The pair, who dated for over a year, became a fan favorite following their sometimes-exorbitant show of love on social media.
Thus, when the news of their breakup made headlines, fans were shattered that their love and romance seemed to have dissipated.
According to people close to the former couple, the “Black Panther” star and Steve’s adoptive daughter were devastated but still had great affection for each other.
In the insider’s words, “Michael matured a lot over the course of their relationship and was ready to commit for the long term. 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.”

Although the source avoided sharing details about when Jordan and Harvey began having issues and the reason for their split, fans assumed something was wrong when the model attended a screening of Michel Hazanavicius’s zombie comedy film, “Final Cut” without her partner in May.
Up until then, fans had gotten used to seeing the ex-couple appearing on red carpets together. Things became even crazier after it was pointed out that the “Creed” actor had removed all traces of his relationship with the model from his social media pages.
Fans believe that the pair ended their relationship due to Harvey’s unwillingness to completely commit to the actor.
They also called the beauty guru out for failing to commit to the “Fantastic Four” actor who was willing to do anything for her. Her father has since spoken up in her defense claiming that he loved and supported her 1,000 percent.
