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

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.

Skylar Marshai is known for her extravagant style, and her hair is no exception. But now, she’s giving her hair a break and focusing on hair care with SheaMoisture’s Bond Repair Collection. “I feel like my hair has always been an extension of my storytelling because I know it's so innately linked to my self-expression that I've been thinking a lot about how my love for crafting my hair into these different forms and shapes has honestly never given it a chance to just be,” Skylar explains.

12 Women Told Me 'The Final Straw' With Their Former Besties

So, as I’m in the process of finishing up my next book, there is a good amount of content on what I used to think a friend was vs. how I define friendship now. As I was walking down memory lane of some, “What the hell was that?!” relational dynamics, I thought about how a few folks have told me, over the past year or so, that some of the friendships they thought they would be old and gray with are either nonexistent or not anywhere close to what it used to be.
