Michael 'Bae' Jordan Credits His Growth To Going Public With His Relationship

The reigning 'Sexiest Man Alive' is OK with opening up about his love life...finally!

Celebrity News

Michael B. Jordan and Lori Harvey sent the internet up earlier this year when they decided to claim each other on the 'gram. And you know what they say: it's not official until it's on the world wide web. We've all seen the pictures, we've all heard the stories. Now, we're excited to see where they go from here.

And trust me when I say, it took A LOT to get here.

MBJ is notorious for keeping his personal life under wraps, Lori, eh, not so much. The world has had so much to say about each, to the point where our boy is finally talking about it. In a recent interview with People, the actor opened up about why Harvey changed his mind about keeping everything off-line.

"I'm still private, and I want to protect that, but it just felt like it was a moment of just wanting to put it out there and move on. I am extremely happy."

King said he's "extremely happy," whew! He continued:

"I think when you get older, you feel more comfortable about the [public nature] of the business that we're in. So for me, it was a moment to, I guess, take ownership of that and then get back to work."

Rumors about Harvey and Jordan's relationship began circulating last year after the two were spotted together during the holiday season in Atlanta, as well as in Salt Lake City. Since, the couple has flaunted their union on social media time and time again. She, lovingly refers to him as "turtle," she calls him "Nugget."

They've also made headlines after the model shared snapshots of their lavish Valentine's Day celebration at a rented out, exclusive Georgia Aquarium, for a private tour and seafood dinner from the Japanese restaurant Nobu.

*Um, Lord, have you been hearing me? I ask usually around about 9:00 p.m., my bedtime, if you've missed my prayers, but I can be louder if you need me to be...*

Anyway, we need to give MBJ some flowers for his growth on the subject, because just a few years ago, he was not with his personal life being out here on front street, and he even admitted that dating has always taken a backseat to his career. He told GQ:

"I'm very mature and advanced in a lot of areas of life. Dating may not be one of 'em. My personal life is not. I don't really know what dating is."

Either way, we're happy that his acknowledges his growth in the dating department, as he is highly, and I mean highly, praised by everyone around. Steve Harvey even famously put his two cents into the mix, saying:

"I have tried to find something wrong with him that I could dig in and go ... 'cause I done got rid of all of them. All of them. Some of them just snuck in the back door on me and lasted a lot longer than I wanted it to. But this guy is such a good guy, man. He is one of the nicest guys, man. I met his father. I've sat up with him. We've talked for hours. I just can't find nothing wrong with him."

And MBJ even returned the favor, recently saying that he thinks it would be "f*cking awesome" to compete on Celebrity Family Feud, which of course Harvey hosts.

Whew. OK, Lord, I'll just be louder, then. Just in case. But while I wait, I'll catch him in Without Remorse which hits Amazon Prime this weekend, instead, 'kay?

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.
