Serial dater Lori Harvey is known for not responding to her legion of haters on social media, but the recent backlash from her new relationship must have struck a nerve because she made a rare appearance in her comments section to address rumors.
Harvey has been trolled for weeks since new boo Damson Idris made it Instagram official, with many stating that they think Harvey dates guys as a publicity stunt. Some even went as far as to say that the model and beauty brand owner gets paid to date men and boost their profiles.
Lori Harvey and Damson Idris are the worst industry pairing ever – I'm not buyin what they're sellin at all. Somebody needs their money back.

What if Lori Harvey really just pays these celebrities to date her as a publicity stunt to show she’s that bitch and motivate us women to do better

All Lori Harvey “relationships” are a publicity stunt. And y’all eat it up every time she hits the net.

I never believed Lori Harvey was in a relationship with any of those men (I don’t know her)….it always gave PR stunt and just business.…nothing less and nothing more.

The final straw was after a fan accused Harvey and Damson of having no chemistry. It obviously had Harvey in her feelings because she felt the need to let it be known that the awkwardness exhibited on the red carpet was due to her body makeup.
Instagram user @NubianGoddessPinky wrote “No chemistry. Look how far apart they’re standing lol”

Harvey shot back, “Or maybe I just had on body makeup and told him don’t stand too close to me because I didn’t want to get it on his suit lol y’all try to find a problem with everything.”
Over the years, Harvey has been linked to multiple industry men, with her most recent breakup from “Creed” heartthrob Michael B Jordan.
Damson and Jordan were thought to be friends and the new relationship has sparked more shade to be hurled Harvey’s way.

Despite the drama, Harvey’s new makeup line “SKN” keeps selling out, so I guess the old saying is true; all press is good press.
