Chris Brown loves a good internet meme and his latest one includes Michael B. Jordan and Steve Harvey. The singer, 31, took to his Instagram Stories on January 15, to share a side-by-side photo of the Creed actor, 33, and the Family Feud host, 63, which suggested they look alike. The most notable tie between the stars is that Michael’s dating Steve’s 24-year-old daughter, model Lori Harvey.
The viral comparison photo shows a throwback of Steve from 2013’s HBO Platinum Comedy Series, alongside Michael’s recent cover as People‘s “Sexiest Man Alive” in 2020 — something we truly can’t unsee. The “uncanny resemblance” (as some critics have described) between the stars is a hot topic on social media — especially after Chris chimed in.
“I can’t unsee it too,” one fan wrote under a post by The Shade Room that re-shared the side-by-side snap. “She’s dating her dad’s twin,” another Instagram user wrote about Lori. Other fans stepped up to defend Michael and claimed that negative critics are going to “scare this man away” from the Harvey family. Additionally, many fans went as far as to joke that “Chris just wants Lori to himself.”
After months of romance speculation, Michael and Lori went public with their relationship in matching Instagram posts on January 10. The actor and model shared sweet snaps of them looking into each other’s eyes while ringing in the new year together in Utah. Since then, Michael and Lori haven’t been shy about flaunting their romance on social media.
More recently, the couple celebrated Lori’s 24th birthday at the Harvey household with a “covid birthday” dance party. Gold balloons filled the lavish CA mansion where Lori and her loved ones sipped on cocktails and partied the night away on a light-up dance floor. The Black Panther star showered his girlfriend with love on her special day. He sent her multiple bouquets of white flowers, which Lori gushed over on Instagram Stories.
While the relationship is fairly new, Michael and Lori are smitten with one another. “He’s proud to be dating her, and she feels the same way about him,” a source told HollywoodLife, exclusively. It’s very balanced. So far, this does seem like the best relationship she’s ever had because he’s just such a good guy. Her family’s so happy,” the insider explained, adding, “They really support this relationship, [and] so far they are very impressed with him.”Click to Subscribe to Get Our Free HollywoodLife Daily Newsletter to get the hottest celeb news.
