In his latest interview, Michael B. Jordan opened up about his infamously romantic Valentine’s Day date with Lori Harvey from earlier this year.

Rumors about the two lovebirds began swirling at the tail end of 2020. It wasn’t until January that the two made their relationship public by becoming Instagram official. Since they were both notorious for being private when it came to their respective past romances, the internet went nuts over the news.

The couple made headlines again when Jordan rented out an aquarium and hired a Nobu chef the following month so the two could enjoy a romantic evening of wining and dining on Valentine’s Day. On her Instagram Stories, Harvey shared videos and snapshots from the aquarium and their dinner table before giving her followers a sneak peak of the rose-petal-covered hotel room Jordan had also organized for the night.

[It was] kinda on the fly and then you have to be even more creative because there weren’t a lot of things that were open. The circumstances of a lot of things forced me to be a bit of a thinker on that one so it was good.”

“I kinda put myself in a tough situation because now I gotta figure out next year,” the actor said with a sly chuckle.


The grand Valentine’s Day gesture wasn’t the first or last time the couple has shared their lovely dovey romantics. Most recently, the two shared photos on their respective Instagrams from a baecation they took together. On his, Jordan captioned a clip of him and Harvey sitting on the beach with, “Best feeling in the world…
