Lori Harvey & Damson Idris Debunk Break-Up Rumors At SZA Concert

Reports claim Damson Idris and Lori Harvey called it quits but the couple still seem to be going strong. Media Take Out reports that friends close to the SKN founder confirmed that she’s no longer with the Snowfall star. “They were dating and it was great, but they’re no longer around each other like that,” the friend said, though they stated there’s no bad blood between Lori Harvey and Damson Idris. “There’s no beef, no cheating, nothing like that. They’re just doing their own thing right now.” It seems as though Lori’s absence from the Swarm premier in LA raised suspicions among fans.

Just as the Internet went wild over the rumors, Damson Idris and Lori Harvey were spotted together, once again. In the face of the allegations of a split, they showed up to SZA’s concert where they were walking hand-in-hand. However, the two seem to be used to the rumors by now, as Idris explained to Rolling Stone. “... Just understanding that you don’t always have to show the world your personal life and that what you do for a living is an extension of yourself, and that’s your baby. And you need to protect that. You also need to protect your personal self too,” he said.

Damson Idris and Lori Harvey began dating at the beginning of the year but speculation began when they were spotted together at an L.A. hotspot.

As the fake news took over social media, Twitter couldn’t help but crack jokes. Some pointed at Lori Harvey’s dating record, claiming Damson couldn’t make it past the 90 day trial. Others brought up Damson Idris’ photo with Michael B. Jordan, who dated Lori Harvey prior. Overall, the internet had a field day with their alleged break-up. Some even joked that the split was a result of Damson Idris’ and Chloe Bailey’s sex scene in Swarm. Check out a few of the best reactions below and sound off with your thoughts in the comments.
