Does Diddy have a new girlfriend? The internet certainly seems to think so.

Photos of the media mogul, 49, taking a stroll through the streets of New York City with Lori Harvey, 22, recently surfaced online. Although the images have sparked rumors about a possible relationship, the two have not confirmed they are dating.

She is Steve Harvey’s stepdaughter.

In June 2017, Steve Harvey married Majorie Bridges (now Harvey), who had three children from a previous marriage. Steve Harvey had four children from his two marriages. It isn’t clear if Steve Harvey adopted his new stepchildren, but they all use his last name.

Lori Harvey was around 10 when the couple wed, and she often posts pictures of the “Family Feud” host to Instagram. Earlier this year, she wrote a tribute message to him to celebrate his birthday.


She was previously an equestrian. 

Lori Harvey, who was born in Memphis and split her childhood between Atlanta and Chicago, was an avid equestrian. She was a champion rider, racking up a lot of awards during her teens years.

Although she wanted to become a professional equestrian, a serious accident derailed her plans.

"I wanted to be a professional equestrian," she told Vogue in a 2018 interview. "But I got injured badly a few years ago, so now I only ride leisurely."

She now works as a model.

The 22-year-old has traveled the world as a model, posing for fashion houses such as Dolce & Gabbana, and she’s walked the runways at Paris and Milan fashion weeks.

She’s also collaborated with beauty brands, including Sephora.

Naomi Campbell and Paloma Elsesser are some of her favorite supermodels.

She was engaged to soccer player Memphis Depay.

In 2016, Lori Harvey began dating Memphis Depay, who plays as a forward for French club Lyon and the Netherlands national team. The soccer star popped the question in June 2017 in Malibu, California.

The two didn't officially announce their breakup, but Lori Harvey reportedly stopped wearing her engagement ring later that year, stopped posting photos with Depay on her Instagram page, and deleted previous posts with him.

She was previously linked to Diddy's son.

She was photographed partying with Justin Combs and his brother, Quincy Brown, at Diddy's The Official Big Game Takeover event in February. By March, rumors began emerging that she was dating Comb's father, Diddy. In 2018, she was reportedly dating R&B singer Trey Songz.

While the model has been mostly mum about her love life, the internet continues to speculate about it. When the photos of her and Diddy began to circulate, she quickly became a trending topic on Twitter.
