Michael B. Jordan and Lori Harvey have called it quit after dating for just a year and a half.
Jordan, 35, and Harvey, 25, started dating in the fall of 2020 and went Instagram-official in January 2021. Still, the pair remained relatively low-key compared to other celebrity couples.
The pair had celebrated their one-year anniversary in November and in December, Jordan told The Hollywood Reporter that he “finally found what love was” in his relationship with Harvey. Jordan explained why he felt comfortable sharing his personal relationship publicly: “When I was younger, I don’t know if I could have handled the onslaught of opinions and being picked apart, and also being conscious of what the other person’s going to go through. It takes a special person to deal with that.”
Now Micheal B Jordan and Lori Harvey have decided to go their separate ways after their PDA-filled romance of 1.5 years.
Michael and Lori are both completely heartbroken,” a source told PEOPLE. “They still love each other.”
“Michael matured a lot over the course of their relationship and was ready to commit for the long term. He let down his guard with her, opening up emotionally in a romantic relationship for the first time,” adds the source. “They had great times together and brought out the best in each other.”
In April 2021, Jordan gushed over Lori and privacy around their relationship with PEOPLE.
“I’m still private, and I want to protect that, but it just felt like it was a moment of just wanting to put it out there and move on,” he said at the time. “I am extremely happy. I think when you get older, you feel more comfortable about the [public nature] of the business that we’re in. So for me, it was a moment to, I guess, take ownership of that and then get back to work.”
When asked about the sexiest or sweetest thing Jordan had done for her, Lori said he is “really good at all the big things.” She explained, “Valentine’s Day, birthdays, all that, but it’s the little things, the everyday things that I think really is what makes him special, like he just listens to me when I talk. Even the other day, I just been saying I really just wanted to go to a farmer’s market, so he called me one Sunday morning and was like, ‘What are you doing, I’m going to come pick you up,’ and he took me an hour away to this really cute farmer’s market and we had the best day. So it’s things like that.”
