Lori Harvey Goes Instagram Official With New Boyfriend Damson Idris After 26th Birthday
The adopted daughter of Steve Harvey is giving fans all the juice from her Friday, January 13 birthday dinner, held at the Italian restaurant LAVO Ristorante in West Hollywood.
“Okay, now that I’m recovered, let’s get into this bday recap,” she wrote on her Instagram, adding a dump of nine hot attention-worthy snaps.
Most of the slides showed her in a body-hugging black ankle-length dress featuring an open back and a front cut-out flaunting parts of her bosom. In the last two snaps, she switched her outfit to another lovely black gown doing justice to her flawless skin with string-like designs connecting the bodice to the back.
However, the highlight of the carousel was the romantic images Lori included of her new boyfriend. The birthday girl posted three pictures of her with Idris, confirming them as the newest couple in town.
Unsurprisingly, the new lovebirds looked adorable, with the movie star rocking a white tux over a black undershirt and matching pants. In one frame, the lovers posed side by side, with Idris placing his hand on his woman’s backside while beaming at the camera.
They could also be seen in the sixth slide, standing in a well-lit space with a large portrait in the background and candles on the floor in the corner. The “Outside the Wire” held Lori’s hand and kissed it passionately while she had a huge smile as she looked at him.
In another photo, the couple was joined by two friends, Justine Skye and Ajay Sangha, striking amusing poses and looking like they were having the best time. Numerous well-wishers were all about the birthday girl in the comments section as they showered her with love emojis and birthday messages.
However, several could not help but point out her new relationship, including one fan who jested, “She finally posted him; y’all happy now?” Another follower penned, “The way she lets these men claim her before she claims them >>>>”, while another gushed about the model’s gorgeousness, adding, “Keep being the prize and don’t let no one make you feel bad for putting yourself first.”
A fellow Instagram follower could not help but notice that most people hating on the couple’s blossoming relationship were men, and she instantly advised them to “take a chill pill.”
According to reports, Lori’s exquisite birthday celebration would be one of the few public events she and her partner have been seen together since he confirmed their relationship first on January 13.
At the time, the “Farming” star, born in Peckham, South London, and of Nigerian descent, took to his Instagram Story with several shots, marking the 26-year-old’s special day.
He could be seen kissing her on the cheek in one of the pictures, captioned “Happy Birthday Nunu,” while in another, Lori held stacks of money by her face with the words “The Plug” written on the post. Prior to the birthday posts, there have been speculations about the pair dating since December 2022, when they were seen at the same restaurant and several events together.

Given Lori’s new romance, fans would believe that she moved on pretty quickly from her ex Michael B. Jordan whom she broke up with in June 2022.
A source revealed at the time that the twosome split because the “Creed” actor wanted marriage which she was not ready for yet.
In their words, “The relationship was moving too fast for her, and they were arguing a lot because he was talking about getting married, and they’d only been together for a year, which scared her off.”
In addition to Jordan, the IMG model has had an extensive dating history involving several A-list African American stars. The skincare founder had a short-time fling with rapper Future and has been linked to singer Trey Songz.
There are also speculations that she had a romantic affair with the father-son duo Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs and Justin Combs, which she recently denied.
