Update: October 21, 2019
Welp, y’all must have seen this coming—Lori and Diddy have officially broken up. According to an E! News source, Diddy has told people he is currently single. Apparently, Diddy’s fling with Lori was only meant for the summertime. Guess he wasn’t in the mood to get into anything too serious!
“Him and Lori had a fun fling, but Diddy is still healing and focusing on himself right now,” the source said. “He is not ready to be in a long-term committed relationship and is focusing on his kids right now.”
A few days before the breakup news hit, Lori allegedly unfollowed Diddy on Instagram, meaning that it’s over over. It was fun while it lasted!
Original story: July 26, 2019
If you thought your family and love life were complicated, wait until you hear about the latest dating rumors involving 49-year-old rapper Diddy and 22-year-old model Lori Harvey. The two are apparently longtime family friends who have been hanging out a lot this year, and she just so happens to be his son’s rumored ex-girlfriend and Steve Harvey’s daughter. Here’s the deal on their complicated situationship and what Diddy’s son and Family Feud’s Steve think about all this.
Wait, who’s Lori?
She might not be a household name yet, but Lori’s a pretty successful model who has walked the runway for Dolce & Gabbana, starred in a PrettyLittleThing campaign, and attended her fair share of fashion shows. She hangs with a crew that includes My Super Sweet 16 icon Teyana Taylor, singer Normani Kordei, and model Jasmine Sanders.
She’s been linked to singer Trey Songz, rapper Future, and race car driver Lewis Hamilton. Meek Mill even tried to shoot his shot and said she was on his “wish list” in “Going Bad.” Oh, one last fact that’s really freaking important to this story: It’s suspected that she dated Diddy’s son, Justin Combs, 25, who once shaded her for hanging out with other guys. Awk!
When did she and Diddy meet?
It’s hard to tell, but Lori is a longtime family friend, according to TMZ sources who are reportedly close to the Combs family. If you are super sleuth-y and click through photo agency pictures, you can see Diddy and Steve go as far back as 2005, at least. And when Diddy’s ex Kim Porter passed away in November, Lori posted a tribute to her on Instagram and called her “Momma Kim.”
All that said, the TMZ sources denied any dating rumors back in March when Diddy and Lori were seen at the same reggae festival in Miami. That said, Diddy and Lori were also seen eating at Nobu in Malibu together around the same time.
Plus! They were just spotted out in New York City looking very chummy this week. Well, she looked chummy. He looked like he had just seen a ghost.
Also, who wears matching outfits with their rumored ex-boyfriend’s dad??
What do Steve and Justin think?
Neither of them have commented on the maybe drama, but Justin is getting roasted on Twitter right now because surely having your dad possibly date your ex will affect the family dynamic. And for Steve, having your friend date your daughter would be awkward too.
Well, this all just seems so messy, but if you somehow score a seat at the Combs-Harvey Thanksgiving table, consider bringing some popcorn with you!
