Michael B. Jordan Jokes About His “First Public Breakup” Following Split From Lori Harvey On SNL

In a rare moment, actor Michael B. Jordan spoke about his previous relationship with model Lori Harvey.

During his recent guest appearance hosting esteemed comedy show SNL, the 35-year-old suggested he’s joined a new dating app following his “first public breakup”.

Speaking on wrapping up his breakout directorial debut for the film “Creed 3”, Jordan revealed his relationship ended shortly after. He stated:

“Right after that [Creed 3] I went through my very first public breakup,”

He continued:

“Most people after a breakup are like, ‘I’m gonna get in better shape,’ but I was already in ‘Creed’ shape…So I had to be like, ‘All right, I guess I’ll learn a new language.’ Anyway, estoy en Raya.”


The saying translates to “I am on Raya”, which is a private, membership only social networking app that has been known to host celebrity members. Jordan and Harvey, 26, spent more than a year together dating before calling it quits in June of last year. After news of the ended relationship began to circulate, Harvey removed the entertainer’s images from her social media feed. Jordan returned the favor a couple of weeks later.


The “Black Panther” star went on to joke about the viral sad looking photo of him taken moments after news of the split was released. Jordan continued:

“After the breakup everyone thought I was so heart broken because when the news came out, I was at a basketball game and they caught me looking like this,”


“I was just chilling, but the internet decided that was me being sad. Luckily for me, if you google ‘sad Michael Jordan’ the first 8,000 results are this,”

Earlier this year, we reported that Harvey has since moved on and is allegedly dating “Snowfall” actor Damson Idris. A few weeks ago, the 31-year-old British TV star posted a pic kissing his suspected socialite boo with the caption:

“Happy Birthday NuNu”

Likewise, Jordan has reportedly moved on and is dating a Britt as well. Earlier this month, sources claimed that the entertainer is romantically linked to 26-year-old model Amber Jepson. However, either Jordan nor Jepson have spoken about the relationship publicly at this time.
