Lori Harvey Shares Why Michael B. Jordan Nicknamed Her “Turtle”

Celebrity News

Lori Harvey and Michael B. Jordan are one of the hottest celebrity couples out right now. After making it Instagram official in January, fans have been watching the couple's every move on and off social media and have been fascinated by how the once eligible bachelorette and bachelor's relationship came to be.


Fans were also curious about their nicknames for each other. In celebration of her birthday, Lori posted a series of glamorous shots of herself on January 13, to which Michael commented, "Gimmie!! 🤤🤤 Sheeesh!! Happy Birthday Turtle!!" The model responded, "thank you nugget 👅."

Lori sat down with Access Daily and finally opened up about the meaning behind her nickname "Turtle," and it's something that women everywhere can relate to.

"Honestly because he says I take so long to get ready. Like I move on turtle time. So he's like, 'OK, Turtle. All right, let's go.' It just stuck."

While the 24-year-old didn't give the meaning behind her nickname for Michael, she did say how they met, which was through mutual friends.

She also said that he has been her guinea pig while developing her new skincare line SKN by Lori Harvey.

Lori announced on Instagram that her skincare line was dropping on October 22 and of course, her "nugget" gave his full support. The People's Sexiest Man Alive commented under the announcement, "World's about to find out! Beyond proud of you. ✨✨✨✨"

He was also front and center at her launch party over the weekend and gave the most adorable speech.

"'I'm extremely, extremely proud of you. From the time I met you--having a vision, having a goal, sticking to your guns, not being distracted by opinions, views, and perspectives...you had something you saw in your mind and you did it and everybody's here to support you."

"The people that love you and the people that care about you, the people that really matter...they're proud of you. I'm proud of you and your parents are extremely proud of you. There's no place I'd rather be," he said right before the couple embraced with a kiss.

*Swoons*

The couple first made headlines in November after they were photographed together exiting off of a plane and since making it Instagram official in January, they still have been low-key about their relationship, which is not too surprising since Michael has been very private about his love life and Lori is his first known girlfriend.

How To Focus Less On Who You Attract In Dating & More On Who You Entertain

The law of attraction is tricky. A few years ago, I felt something was deeply wrong with me because I kept attracting people who hurt me. No matter how hard I tried to fix myself, and alter my energy, the same type of people kept coming my way. I'd talk to my friends about it and ask them, "Why do I keep attracting this type of person? Why do I keep having the same experiences?"
