The runway star is known for being extremely close-lipped about her personal life, which she indicated is what her 3.7 million Instagram followers expect from her.

‘I think they get from me that I try to just not let any type of negativity or rumors or anything like that make me stoop down to that level and go back and forth with it or whatever,’ Harvey said.

‘Just maintain my position of I know who I am, I know what’s going on,’ she continued. ‘So I think that would probably be what they get from me, because I am private, so I like to just give enough.’

Lori, who is the stepdaughter of TV host Steve Harvey, and Future, 37, first sparked dating rumors at the end of 2019 when they spent New Year’s Eve together. 

The rumors were later confirmed when the pair went on a romantic vacation in Jamaica to celebrate Harvey’s 23rd birthday.

However, the two split in August 2020 and Future included bitter lyrics about the socialite in the extended version of his collaboration with 42 Dugg, Maybach.  

‘Tell Steve Harvey I don’t want her,’ Future rapped. ‘One thing I never seen was a b**ch leave.’
