Michael B. Jordan + Lori Harvey
That’s right, folx: People magazine’s reigning Sexiest Man Alive is officially off the market – and with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, no less! The Creed star, 33, and model Lori Harvey, 24, step-daughter of talk show host Steve Harvey, are Instagram-official after the duo shared some adorable snaps on their respective accounts on Jan. 11. The pics, which feature twinkly Christmas lights in the background, were clearly during the recent holiday season. Rumours that the pair were an item first surfaced around American Thanksgiving after they were photographed at an Atlanta airport together.
Jordan, who has famously remained tight-lipped about relationships in the past, told People last year that his ideal partner would have “a sense of humour, true understanding … [and be] somebody that’s nurturing. I’ve got a list.” In recent years, Harvey has been linked to mogul Sean Combs and rapper Future, but never officially went public with either.

Harry Styles + Olivia Wilde
The new year got off to a wild(e) start when the world was gifted these images of Harry Styles, 26, and Olivia Wilde, 36, holding hands while en route to a friend’s wedding in early January.
So, when exactly did this all happen? Back in September, it was announced that Wilde had cast the Grammy-nominated artist as the lead in her upcoming directorial film, Don’t Worry, Darling. Replacing the ousted Shia LaBeouf, the role will be the first time Styles has appeared in a film since his acting debut in Christopher Nolan’s 2017 Second World War drama, Dunkirk.
In November, media picked up on Wilde’s split from longtime fiancé Jason Sudeikis. The couple share two young kids together. A source told ET Canada, “It’s been amicable and they’ve transitioned into a great co-parenting routine. The children are the priority and the heart of the family’s relationship.” Although many question the timing of events, sources close to the former couple reveal they’d gone their separate ways almost a year ago already.
In early January, the bombshell photo of Wilde holding hands with Styles in Montecito, California went viral – leaving fans of the gender-bending singer heartbroken to the point that many angrily took to Wilde’s Instagram account to mock their 10-year age gap. Wilde was previously married to Italian filmmaker Tao Ruspoli while Styles has previously been linked to Kendall Jenner, Nicole Scherzinger and French model Camille Rowe.
