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. She is a model, entrepreneur and socialite who has carved her own niche in the entertainment industry. With her stunning looks, glamorous lifestyle and high-profile relationships, she has captivated the world with her charm and charisma. Whether she is walking the runway for Dolce & Gabbana, launching her skincare brand SKN by LH, or cuddling up with her boyfriend Damson Idris, she always makes a statement. 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.

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. Unlike the beauty standards set for model, Lori is short in stature. While her 5’3” stature is uncommon on the ramp, she is confident of physique and gone on to say:
“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.”
In 2015, she signed with LA Model Management agency in the United States, and Select Model Management in Europe. She soon caught the attention of major brands and designers, such as Dolce & Gabbana, Michael Kors, Valentino, Pat McGrath, and Burberry. She walked the runway for Dolce & Gabbana’s 2017 Spring/Summer collection, and appeared in campaigns and magazines for the other labels.

She also collaborated with Naked Wardrobe on a clothing collection that reflects her personal style. In 2022, she faced some controversy over her weight loss diet before the Met Gala, and over the similarity of her skincare brand name to Kim Kardashian’s SKKN by Kim. However, she did not let these challenges stop her from pursuing her goals. In 2023, she co-starred in Usher’s music video for “Glu”, and signed a modeling contract with IMG Models and William Morris Endeavor (WME).
