Of all of Steve Harvey’s children, Lori Harvey might be the one who gets into trouble the most. From her random dating life to a hit and run accident, Lori certainly has a lot on her plate. Even though she is not the biological daughter of Steve Harvey, Lori Harvey seems to take more after her stepfather than anyone else. But while Steve has achieved phenomenal success in his field, Lori is an Instagram model and influencer who has set out to pursue a career as a model. In this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Lori Harvey.
Lori Harvey was born on the 13th of January 1997. Born to Marjorie Harvey, there is little mention of Lori’s father. While she was later adopted by Steve Harvey, Lori has no relation with her biological father. Given that Marjorie was previously married to Jim Townsend, many thought that Jim was Lori’s real father. From the look of things, Lori herself has no idea about her biological father. Born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, Lori grew up in Atlanta and attended Atlanta High School. Following her high school, Lori continued her college in Florida. After graduating from college, Lori started pursuing her career as a model.
While Lori has been modeling on Instagram since 2017, she always wanted to be a model. She began modeling when she was quite young and is currently signed to top model agencies like LA Models and Select Model Management in Europe. While Lori can be seen on runways now and then, she is huge on social media, particularly Instagram. The 22-year-old has more than 2.3 million followers on Instagram and regularly posts pictures from her day to day life and photo shoots. Unlike the beauty standards set for model, Lori is short in stature. While her 5’3” stature is uncommon on the ramp, Lori couldn’t be more proud of her career.
“Being that I’m not a traditional model, it’s kind of cool because I feel like it’s opening up a door for a new generation of models that look more like me versus being 5-foot-10 and super skinny [with a] super flat stomach and super skinny legs like everything looks so perfect. So, it’s cool that I don’t have to be a size 00. I can literally just be me and that’s okay.”
While Lori is set on becoming a model, things were quite different in 2015. Around the time, Lori was interested in horses and horse riding. This led her to compete in many equestrian tournaments and she managed to win a fair share of them. Even though she was home schooled until the 7th grade, Lori was accepted in all the colleges she applied for. She chose a college in Florida to further her equestrian skills. However, things got bad for Lori in 2015 who was involved in a huge accident. It left her with a severe back injury and a torn MCL. Following the accident, Lori gave up the reins and started working as a model.
Rumors of Lori dating someone are not new at this point. Over the last few years, Lori has been seen with Trey Songz, Justin Combs, Future, and had an alleged fling with Diddy. Her only concrete relationship was with Dutch football player Memphis Depay. Even though the pair got engaged in 2017, they called it quits the same year.
