Rapper Future and Steve Harvey’s daughter Lori Harvey may be a relatively new couple, but they are one of the most talked about duos in the hip-hop universe. That could be because each one has their own drama story. Case in point? Harvey was rumored to be dating her ex-boyfriend’s much older father, Sean “Diddy” Combs, in 2019. Meanwhile, Future has six children with five different women (including Ciara!), By The Bang , and is in amid legal battles with other alleged baby moms. Also, there is a 13-year age gap between Future and Harvey.
Having said all this, you know what they say: the heart wants what it wants. And judging by the public displays of affection from Future and Harvey, these two love each other. The couple began sharing their relationship on social media in January 2023. They have apparently grown stronger since then, but there may be more to this couple than meets the eye. Here is everything you need to know about this unexpected coincidence.
Future and Lori Harvey may have been online for years
Rumors of a burgeoning romance between Future and Lori Harvey began to increase in late 2019. First, Harvey helped Future celebrate his birthday in November 2019, and then they were seen “getting comfortable” in Abu Dhabi in December 2019, according to MY! News . A month later, Harvey shared a video of her and Future involved in a serious PDA in their Instagram stories, apparently confirming the rumors. While they weren’t officially released until early 2023, these two may have had a connection long before they were revealed.
According to OK Magazine , Harvey shared a photo of her dog on her Instagram Stories in March 2023. She revealed the “funny fact” that Future had actually given her the dog. Pretty sweet, right? However, he noted that the rapper got him the dog almost two years earlier, at which point they definitely didn’t get together, at least not publicly.
At the time, Harvey had just broken his engagement to Dutch soccer player Memphis Depay, and Future was in the midst of having a child with his then-girlfriend, Joie Chavis (via Hot New Hip-Hop ). Harvey deleted the photo of their story after publishing it, but by then fans had put two and two together.
The future is ‘taking your time’ with the relationship
Future and Lori Harvey have not officially confirmed their marital status. However, they continued to post many photos and videos of each other on social media. In an interview with Revista XXL , Future explained his choice to stay private about his relationship and at the same time share some parts with fans.
“It’s just, you know, what to give away and you know what not to put or whatever. You’re still trying to find those different ways to keep it private, but somehow give your fans little ideas about what’s going on in your life, “Future said. “You get the people in the world they want to know, so you open up a little, but you have to save most for yourself and your partner.”
It goes without saying that there have already been many rumors of pregnancy and engagement. At one point, Harvey posted a photo with a sonogram in the background, which Truly started the rumors (via Hollywood Life ) But, as far as his love life is concerned, Future said XXL that “he’s taking my time with everything right now, life is good. I just want to take my time with everything.
The couple reportedly live together in Los Angeles, according to The Explosion.
Lori Harvey’s parents may not approve
While Future and Lori Harvey seem happy together, the rapper may have to work to win the approval of his girlfriend’s parents. He doesn’t just have a typical set of parents, either: His mother, Marjorie Harvey, has been married to superstar comedian and presenter Steve Harvey since Lori was 10, and Steve adopted Lori as his own.
According to Hip Hollywood , Marjorie once gave dating advice to her daughter on a segment of Steve Harvey’s previous daytime talk show Steve Harvey . Without athletes. No rappers. Let’s go to the list, “Marjorie warned jokingly. Always be a lady. And understand that you are the prize ».
Of course, Future falls into the “rapper” category of that list. But it would not be the first time that Lori has neglected to heed her mother’s advice; her ex-fiancé, Memphis Depay, was an athlete. Also, there was a brief and rumored romance with Diddy.
Meanwhile, Steve is decidedly not interested in commenting on his daughter’s love life. The Hollywood Fix I asked her in January 2023 how she feels about Lori dating Future. His answer: “I don’t know anything about it.” The store asked, “Do you approve of the future? Once again he said, “I don’t know anything about it.”
At 23 years old, Lori is old enough to make her own dating decisions. We will have to be vigilant to see how this controversial association develops.
