I usually don’t comment on celebrity gossip and rumors, but I want to bring fresh air to this situation. My Twitter feed is flooded with thoughts and opinions about Lori Harvey’s new “relationship” with Snowfall actor Damson Idris with her last “relationship” with CREED actor and director Michael B.

I put quotations around “relationship” because I don’t know if their exclusive, but many people believe that making things “Instagram Official” clearly indicates that the relationship is solid.

I don’t know where she purchased her thick skin, but I hope she lets us know soon.

What people don’t know gets them uncomfortable, so they try to make sense of people for it to make sense.
