Lori Harvey And Damson Idris Announce They Are Parting Ways After One Year Of Dating

After a little over a year of dating, Lori Harvey is once again saying on to the next.

Lori and her now-ex-beau Damson Idris shared a joint statement with The Hollywood Reporterannouncing their decision to split. According to the statement, the decision to end things is an amicable one. "We are at a point in our lives where our individual paths require our full attention and dedication," the statement read. "We part ways remaining friends with nothing but love and respect for each other and the time we shared together."

Rumors of a breakup brewing between the two initially sparked earlier this week when news spread that Lori and Damson were no longer following each other on Instagram and seemed to wipe each other's existence from their accounts. Some outlets even pointed out that they arrived at Odell Beckham Jr.'s birthday party separately on Monday night (Nov. 6), which seemed to be yet another hint that pointed to the couple being broken up.

Lori, 26, and Damson, 32, first ignited dating rumors around this time last year when they were spotted having dinner together in December. Their romance picked up steam rather quickly, with the two sharing post showcasing their love on social media in January 2023 and making their red carpet debut as a couple during the premiere of the final season of Damson's hit FX series, Snowfall, in February 2023.

Damson revealed in a March 2023 interview with Complexthat he was more public-facing with his budding love for Lori than in his past relationships because he was growing. "With my private life today, with my relationship today, it's great. Life is great, and I'm just moving forward."

Compared to her previous high-profile relationship with a certainCreed actor, Lori kept things relatively low-key in interviews, not sharing much with the media about her romance with Damson outside of Instagram pics, red carpet photos, birthday and couples trips, and paparazzi candids.

It's no secret that Lori's dating history can be a hot topic, but the model-turned-entrepreneur is just uncompromising and purposeful about what she is looking for in love. As she should. The shift for her in owning a dating mindset of "not compromising my values, standards, and my requirements" came after Lori almost got married to her former fiancé Memphis Depay at the very young age of 21.

She explained in a 2022 interview for Bumble, "I felt like I hadn’t really experienced anything. I didn’t really know myself, I didn’t really know what I liked, what I didn’t like. I just feel like I hadn’t really experienced life.”

Lori added, "At that point then I was like I’m about to, like I said, just date on my own terms. However, I want to move, whatever I want to do, I’m going to do it. And if it’s no longer serving me, I’m going to move on.”
