Damson Idris, the British-Nigerian actor, and Lori Harvey, his US model partner, have broken up.


The actor and model initially sparked dating rumours in December last year.

But on Lori’s 26th birthday in January, Damson shared a loved-up photo with the model on social media.

He captioned the picture’s background with “Happy Birthday Nunu” and a love emoji — indicating they are in a relationship.


On Tuesday, the duo confirmed their separation in a joint statement shared with The Hollywood Reporter.

Damson and Lori said, “we are at a point in our lives where our individual paths require our full attention and dedication”.

“We part ways remaining friends with nothing but love and respect for each other and the time we shared together,” they said.


Damson was born in Peckham, South-East London, and is of Nigerian descent.

He is best known for his roles in the FX crime-drama series ‘Snowfall’ and the movie ‘Farming.’

Lori, on the other hand, is the step-daughter of Steve Harvey, the ace comedian and TV host.

In January 2021, Lori confirmed her relationship with Micheal B. Jordan, the American actor.


The pair, however, ended the relationship in June 2022 — after dating for about a year and a half.

The model was formerly engaged to Memphis Depay, the Dutch football player, in 2017.

She has been romantically linked in the past with Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, Future and Trey Songz, US musicians; and Justin Combs, American footballer.
