Ladies and gentlemen all over the world are marveling at the latest relationship news surrounding People magazine's 2020 Sexiest Man Alive, aka Michael B. Jordan. It appears that Michael and longtime girlfriend, Lori Harvey, have officially called their relationship quits.
Michael and Lori, who went official with their relationship in January 2021, were one of Hollywood's "it" couples. However, things have gone left, and social media users are chiming in.
Now that Lori is officially added to the Creed star's list of exes, it's only right that we take a deep dive into the actor's romantic past. Here's the rundown on Michael B. Jordan's exes — both confirmed and rumored — along with some tea on his breakup with Lori.
Michael and Lori first set off coupledom rumors around Thanksgiving 2020 after being spotted at an Atlanta airport. The couple were then spotted at a Salt Lake City airport before New Year's 2021. They later went on to confirm their relationship on Jan. 10, 2021, with respective Instagram posts.
However, the pair called it quits in June 2022. Sources told People that Michael was ready to take their relationship to the next level, but it seems that Lori was not quite there yet.
"He let down his guard with her, opening up emotionally in a romantic relationship for the first time," a source told the publication. "They had great times together and brought out the best in each other."
The source continued, "Michael and Lori are both completely heartbroken. They still love each other."

Michael and KiKi — an actress famous for her roles in If Beale Street Could Talk and The Old Guard — reportedly got close at a Sundance party at the Tao nightclub pop-up in Park City, Utah, in January 2019. “Michael and KiKi were super flirty all night,” an eyewitness told People at the time. “He spent literally all night talking and focused on her.” (Meanwhile, a source told Us Weekly that the actor was “kissing [KiKi] on the cheek” before they “left together in the same car.”)
Photographs of Michael leaving the Met Gala with this model and reality star in May 2015 sparked relationship rumors — and backlash, as the actor told GQ later that year. “A lot of Black fans were feeling like, ‘Oh, my God, he should have been with a Black woman’ and that whole thing,” he explained. “I get it, but on the other hand it’s, like, relax. You know — it’s 2015. It’s OK! People can like one another, not necessarily from the same history or culture or whatever the f--k it is. It’s just the new world, you know what I mean?”
