Lori Harvey, 26, and actor Damson Idris, 32, are no longer an item after seemingly less than a year of dating. The former couple put social media chatter to rest by releasing a formal statement about the end of their relationship.
“We are at a point in our lives where our individual paths require our full attention and dedication. We part ways remaining friends with nothing but love and respect for each other and the time we shared together,” the statement read.
Social media users began suspecting the couple had broken up when they noticed both unfollowed each other and deleted all pictures of one another from their Instagram pages.
Rumors of Idris and Harvey dating began when they were spotted in West Hollywood leaving a restaurant. They seemingly confirmed their relationship in January when Idris posted a picture kissing the model on the cheek and wishing her a happy birthday. Following that soft reveal, the two hit the red carpet together for Damson’s Snowfall premiere in February.
During their year-long relationship, the Snowfall actor attended Harvey’s 26th birthday bash, they sang their hearts out at a Beyoncé concert in May 2023, ate turkey legs at Disneyland in August. Damson also went on vacation with thee Harvey’s in July 2023 and did a baecation in Turks and Caicos.
Harvey has been clear about her not settling in relationships and doing what’s best for her. During an interview with Bumble Presents Luv2SeeIt with Teyana Taylor in 2022, Harvey discussed what makes her feel empowered in relationships.
“Not compromising my values, my standards, and my requirements,” she said. “You’ve got to make sure you’re giving [your love] to the right person because when you start giving it to the wrong person it starts to drain you,” she said.
During an appearance on E! in January, she also shared the words she holds closest to her hart from her dad, Steve Harvey, are that she is the prize.
“It just means not compromising my values, my happiness, my peace, and not settling for less than what I know I deserve,” the model said.
Harvey has previously dated the likes of Michal B Jordan and Future and was engaged to Memphis Depay. This is the first celebrity Damson was publicly linked to.
