Steve Harvey’s stepdaughter Lori Harvey has blazed her own trail as a model, skincare entrepreneur and influencer. Steve met Lori’s mother, Marjorie Harvey, in the early stages of his career in the 1980s. The comedian once revealed that although he knew he wanted to marry Marjorie from the moment they met, he was on the brink of homelessness at the time and couldn’t afford to take the next step.
“We were together 25 years ago but I became homeless. So we only dated a year and I didn’t have any money so I never went back,” he said on his YouTube series Rolling with Steve Harvey. Adding, “The first night I met her was at a comedy club … I stopped the show and said, ‘I don’t know who you are, but I’m going to marry you one day.'”
The stand-up comic kept its promise and tied the knot with Marjorie in 2007. Together, Steve and Marjorie have seven children and a host of grandchildren. Steve’s stepdaughter Lori has since become a socialite in her own right. However, Steve and Lori have apparently maintained a close bond as they rose to stardom.
Lori Harvey has a strong relationship with her parents
Years after his divorce from his first wife, Marcia Harvey, Steve Harvey rekindled his relationship with Marjorie Harvey. The couple would wed two years after their 2005 reunion, and Steve adopted Lori Harvey in the process. Lori recently gushed about her parents and their love for each other, revealing that Steve and Marjorie’s marriage is what she aspires to be.
“They are definitely my couple of goals,” she told Us Weekly, adding, “They have the best love, they are so supportive and just always there for me whatever I need. That’s how great they are. I love her.”
And while Lori has become best known for her uber-famous stepfather, some may still be wondering who her biological father is. According to EurWeb, reports indicate that a man named Donnell Woods is Lori’s biological father. However, Lori tends to keep this information a secret. Regardless, the young star appears to have a loving and supportive relationship with Steve and Marjorie.
Steve and Marjorie Harvey are very protective of Lori
With Lori Harvey’s rise to fame came a natural curiosity about her love life. The SKN by LH founder was recently involved in a nearly two-year relationship with actor Michael B. Jordan. When Lori’s parents ended their relationship with Jordan, they shared their feelings about the couple’s dissolved union.
“Things happen,” Steve Harvey said during an episode of “The Steve Harvey Morning Show.” He went on to explain that he understands that a public relationship can be stressful for all parties. However, he made it very clear that he stands by his daughter. “I haven’t heard anyone say they didn’t break windows or anything,” he added. “As long as you don’t touch my daughter, I don’t give a shit what you do.”
Lori’s mother, Marjorie Harvey, also shared a message online that appeared to be addressed to Jordan. Marjorie posted a clip of actress Jennifer Lewis saying (per Hollywood Life), “You’ve been in the shit for too long, it’s stopped smelling. So get the fuck out there.” And while the state of Jordan’s relationship with the famous family is unknown, there’s no doubt that Lori’s relationship with Steve is as strong as ever.
