Steve Harvey joked that he feels ‘pure hatred’ towards Michael B Jordan, after the Black Panther actor began dating his daughter, Lori Harvey.
The lovebirds recently made their relationship Instagram official after intense speculation, sending fans into meltdown.
Despite the 33-year-old being one of the most in-demand stars in Hollywood, and the current owner of the People’s Sexiest Man Alive title, Steve joked that this isn’t enough to totally sway him.
Chatting about their romance on his iHeartRadio show, The Steve Harvey Morning Show, he told listeners: ‘I still got my eye on him.
‘I mean, I like I him, but like I say to all of them, “I might like you. I might approve of you, but I’ve got a thumb-sized section of my heart filled with nothing but pure hatred for you. Just in case I need it.”’
The host praised Michael for being a ‘nice guy’, but laughed that his thoughts about the star could change very quickly.
‘[Michael is a] nice guy. But I got this little section where all I gotta do is a click a switch and I’d hate your ass,’ he continued.
‘You’re not the sexiest man in the world to me. Let’s be clear about that.’
Michael and Lori previously had the rumourmill spinning when they appeared to grow closer, but had not made any public statements about their romance.
This all changed at the beginning of the month, when the Creed favourite posted a string of professional photos with his girlfriend – who followed suit on her own page.
Lifting the lid on why they kept things lowkey at first, an insider claimed that they wanted to get to know each other behind closed doors before letting the public in.
Which is fair enough.
‘It seems they have wanted to get to know each other in private,’ the source told People magazine. ‘They have been careful about being photographed together.
‘In the past she quickly posted social media pictures with guys that she was dating. With Michael she has tried a different approach.’
