It’s a good thing Lori Harvey isn’t Wendy Williams’ kid. The host expressed her disapproval of a romance between Steve Harvey’s 23-year-old daughter and rapper Future, 36, on January 15. Wendy didn’t hold back when reacting to the dating rumors.
As Lori Harvey and Future continue to get cozy in Jamaica, where they’re celebrating her 23rd birthday, Wendy Williams is in her purple chair giving her two cents about the rumored romance. The host, who often points out that Future, 36, has multiple children with various women, did just that on her talk show Wednesday morning. She admitted that if Lori, 23, were her kid, there’d be major consequences.
“He has 8 kids with four different babies moms! … If this was my daughter at 23 I would break her neck, crack her skull and throw her down the steps,” Wendy said. “And, you’re not the boss of your kids when they’re 23-years-old. Lori, what’re you doing? Girl, everyone talks about you… You’re so pretty, you don’t have to be that girl!”
Meanwhile, Lori’s father, Steve Harvey also reacted to news of his daughter’s rumored romance with the rapper. “I don’t know nothing about it,” the Family Feud host said to The Hollywood Fix while out in LA with Kris Jenner‘s boyfriend, Corey Gamble on January 6. When asked if he “approves” of the Future, Steve played coy, adding, “I don’t know nothing about it.” Nonetheless, he was quite chatty throughout the interview, except when it came to his daughter’s love life.
Lori and Future have been vacationing in Jamaica with friends in celebration of her birthday, which was on January 13. She shared a since expired video to her Instagram Stories that showed her smiling with Future. In the caption of the clip, Lori gushed that the rapper seriously “outdid” himself, hinting that it was Future who planned the over-the-top getaway.
Upon arrival in Jamaica, Lori was greeted with a rose petal path that led to a candlelit bedroom, which featured more rose petals in the shape of a heart. She documented the sweet moment on her Instagram Stories, but did not tag Future at the time. However, he made more frequent appearances in her social media posts as the trip went on.
Future later posted a photo of him with Lori cuddled up in a lavish pool together on January 14. He captioned the photo, “Life Is Good” — which is the title of his new single with Drake. Lori also shared that photo and separate one from and outdoor dinner to her Instagram Stories.
Lori and Future first sparked romance rumors in November when she was spotted at his all-white 36th birthday party in Atlanta. The dating buzz only heightened when Future shared a photo of him with Lori to his Instagram Story in December. She was pictured posing in black leather pants, a cropped top and a diamond chain, which Future wrote over it, “Flawless. Tap for details.”
The rumored couple has not yet addressed or confirmed a romance, despite sharing photos of one another. Lori was previously linked to Sean “Diddy” Combs.
