Michael B. Jordan has finally opened up about his famously private love life, as his new girlfriend Lori Harvey revealed their relationship via some sweet snapshots on Instagram. While Harvey’s dating history prior to her relationship with Jordan has been relatively public, the past of the reigning Sexiest Man Alive is much more mysterious, by his own choice. It’s been somewhat of a guessing game, but he’s only been briefly linked to a few women over the years.
Back in January 2019, rumors swirled that Jordan might have been dating fellow actor Kiki Layne. The relationship rumors began after the pair both attended the Sundance Film Festival and were reportedly seen flirting at a party, according to People. “Michael and Kiki were super flirty all night,” one fellow partygoer told the magazine. “He spent literally all night talking and focused on her… [Jordan] left the club first and she followed.” After that party, however, Jordan and Layne weren’t seen together again, and the rumors fizzled out.
A similar situation happened a few months later, this time with model Cindy Bruna. First, the duo were photographed together at a Met Gala afterparty in May 2019, where they were seen laughing and apparently enjoying each other’s company. A few days later, The Shade Room reported that Jordan and Bruna were snapped by the paparazzi, leaving dinner together at a New York City restaurant, where they had apparently spent over four hours together. Like before, though, there was never a public statement from either one of them, and they were never seen together in public again after that.
Although Jordan has been in the public eye for nearly a decade at this point, this is the first we’re hearing any confirmation of any of his personal relationships. He has, however, publicly denied some relationships that the tabloids have suggested. Most notably, in 2018, he batted down rumors that he and Black Panther costar Lupita Nyong’o were an item. “They’re writing their own soap opera that they want to see happen,” Jordan told USA Today. “Me and Lupita? I love her to death. Beautiful girl, very talented. People write their own narratives — I don’t have any control over that.” It looks like, for now at least, all the questions about Jordan’s dating life have finally been answered!
