Rumors are running rampant that Michael B. Jordan paid Atlanta socialite Lori Harvey for discrete beard services.

These rumors have cropped up about Lori before. Lori's beard services are legendary. The 24-year-old has a history of briefly dating effeminate rappers, music moguls, and pro athletes.

Rumors have plagued Jordan for his entire career. Then there's this from a young man on TikTok:

Internet sleuths claim the paparazzi is paid to leak photos of Jordan, 33, and Lori to the Instagram blogs to improve his public image -- particularly among Black women who despise him for certain comments he made back in the day.

The sleuths also point to Jordan's body language in the photos as proof that he is not that into her.

They're saying the couple is going overboard with all the trips, vacation photos and public displays of affection. It all looks absolutely staged, they say.

But, according to the actor's rep, there is no deception or beard services: just a young couple that is really in love.

The rep told HollywoodLife that the paparazzi pictures do seem a bit excessive, but "Love is in the air."

"No one should anticipate an engagement between Lori and Michael this year, although it would not be a bad thing. But, they are enjoying being a couple, traveling and celebrating birthdays together. Things are really positive between them both and they have a really deep connection. They both respect each other’s work ethic as well. Michael would like more privacy and will not be talking about his relationship much or at all, but to say it’s going well would be a drastic understatement. Love is definitely in the air for them both."

Michael B. Jordan and Lori Harvey made their unlikely relationship official on Instagram over the weekend.

The "Black Panther" star shared a series of professional photographs with Lori on the social media app over the weekend. Michael, 33, captioned the post with a black love heart and exclamation marks, seemingly confirming he is heterosexual.

Lori, 23, also took to her own IG profile to post a series of polaroids from the same shoot of the pair looking loved-up in front of a Christmas tree.

Romance rumors were swirling around the couple during the Thanksgiving break, when they were seen together in Lori's native Atlanta.

The day before New Year's Eve, they were spotted stepping off a private jet together in Salt Lake City, Utah, where they reportedly rang in 2021 together in the wintery ski resort.

Lori - who was adopted by radio and TV host Steve Harvey after he married her model mother Marjorie - has previously been romantically linked to entertainment mogul Sean Combs, his son Justin Combs, rapper Future and singer Trey Songz. She was also engaged to Dutch footballer Memphis Depay in 2017.

After being named their Sexiest Man Alive last year, Michael told People magazine of the attributes he was looking for in a girlfriend.

"A sense of humor, true understanding - because (an actor's) life is not conducive to a relationship, it’s really not," he told the publication.

The actor continued, "Somebody that's nurturing .... That's probably why my a*s is still single, but yeah, it's a list."

The "Just Mercy" actor has previously been linked to Swedish singer Snoh Aalegra, model Cindy Bruna and actress Kiki Layne.

There's an old saying that goes: "Every rumor has a kernel of truth to it."

But a source close to Kanye West's camp said the rumor that he's in a same-sex relationship with beauty influencer Jeffree Star is just flat out false.

Jeffrey, 35, fueled the rumors last month when he posted a photo of himself in Casper, Wyoming, along with the caption: "It's Mrs. Wyoming to you... #jeffreestar #casperwyoming #wyoming."

Casper is about a 3-hour drive or 21-minute flight from Kanye's ranch in Cody, WY.

After teasing his 14 million followers with more photos from Wyoming, Jeffree sent the gossipmongers into a frenzy when he shared an IG image of himself wearing a pink bathrobe, along with the caption, "I'm ready for Sunday Service."

A source close with Kanye and his estranged wife Kim Kardashian told E! News that "there is absolutely no truth to Jeffree and Kanye rumors".

The rumors that Kanye and Jeffrey were an item were started by TikToker Ava Louise, who claimed she had insider information.

Ava teased that Kanye left his wife and moved way out to Wyoming in the middle of nowhere because he was ashamed of his true sexual identity.

"i can't say WHO cuz he’ll sue me hint hint but it's part of the reason Kanye's so religious now it's his self hatred .... my source is legit I promiss [sic]"

Kanye and Kim are reportedly in counseling to help repair their broken bonds of matrimony. But it's going to be tough going because both are seeing other people.

Kim, 40, is reportedly dating CNN reporter Van Jones, 52, who can't stop gushing about her to his friends.

Van met Kim at the White House when she asked President Donald Trump to pardon Alice Johnson in 2018.

Kim has been studying law, and she hopes that Van, who graduated from Yale Law School, will help put her on the fast-track to obtaining a law degree.

Van reportedly told friends that Kim will make "a great lawyer" because she is "incredibly persuasive and persistent."

Jeffrey responded to a Wendy Williams segment about the rumors on Thursday.

"If she only knew about the actual rappers who have visited my mouth. Taking that sh*t to the grave miss thing."

Rumors are running rampant that Kanye West invited influencer and makeup artist Jeffrey Star to his Wyoming ranch -- and Jeffree never left.

Kanye is reportedly "sad, but okay” while he waits for his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, to serve him with divorce papers.

Jeffrey, 35, fueled romance rumors last month when he posted a photo of himself in Casper, Wyoming, along with the caption: "It's Mrs. Wyoming to you... #jeffreestar #casperwyoming #wyoming."

Casper is about a 3-hour drive or 21-minute flight from Kanye's ranch in Cody, WY.

Kanye, 43, purchased his sprawling ranch with its 10-bedroom mansion with 2 underground garages for $14 million in 2019. That's around the time Kanye emotionally checked out of his "cold" marriage with Kim.

Jeffrey left no doubt whose bed he shares when he posted an IG image of himself wearing a pink bathrobe, along with the caption, "I'm ready for Sunday Service."

He included an emoji of a pigeon that is a symbol for Rest in peace (RIP). Some IG followers speculated that his use of the RIP emoji signified the death of Kanye and Kim's marriage. The post drew over 20,000 comments.

Kanye and Jeffrey have a lot in common: Jeffree prefers his chocolate dark, while Kanye prefers androgynous women who could easily pass for men in drag.

Kanye was raised in Chicago and Atlanta by his single mom, Donda West, who died following a botched breast reduction procedure in 2007. The aspiring rapper's dad, Ray West, was a former Black Panther in the 1960s and a photojournalist for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Donda and ray divorced in 1980 when Kanye was only 3. In her memoir Raising Kanye: Life Lessons from the Mother of a Hip-Hop Superstar, Donda recalled how hesitant Ray was to raise a child.

"I don't know if I can be a good father. I don't know if it's in me. That's why I don't want to do it," she quoted him in her book. Donda and little Kanye moved to Chicago while Ray stated in Atlanta.

The youngster didn't have a strong father figure in his life to teach him how to be a man growing up. He struggled with mental illness as an adult, which resulted in at least two emergency admissions to mental wards.

Kanye had difficulty maintaining stable relationships with androgynous women, such as bisexual socialite Amber Rose, 37, who spread rumors about Kanye's sexual preferences in an explicit tweet.

Page Six reported this week that celebrity divorce attorney Laura Wasser, who handled Kim's previous divorce from NBA star Kris Humphries, is drawing up the papers for Kim's divorce from Kanye.

Wasser also negotiated mega producer Dr. Dre's temporary spousal support check for $2 million to his estranged wife, Nicole Young, that will be paid on Monday, Jan. 11.

Kim is reportedly delaying the divorce proceedings until she figures out how to break the news about daddy's new girl/boyfriend to their four children.

According to multiple sources, the children, North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 2, and 1-year-old Psalm, have already met Kim's new man, CNN reporter Van Jones.

Van met Kim at the White House when she asked President Donald Trump to pardon Alice Johnson in 2018. Kim has been studying law, and she hopes that Van, who graduated from Yale Law School, will help put her on the fast-track to obtaining a law degree.

Van, 52, reportedly told friends that Kim, 40, will make "a great lawyer" because she is "incredibly persuasive and persistent."

He separated from his wife of 14 years, Jana Carter, in 2019. Their union produced two sons, Cabral and Mattai.

Speaking to the New York Post's gossip column Page Six, a source said:

"(He) is her boo. People know. It's not a new thing, but it's new for the public. It's a big deal that she shared the photo because she's so private."

"She's super happy and they're a happy couple," the source insisted. "They're very cute together."

After being voluntarily single for months, model and socialite Draya Michele finally landed another NFL player with deep pockets.

Over the weekend, Draya was spotted leaving Catch in West Hollywood after dining with rumored boyfriend, Los Angeles Chargers Quarterback Tyrod Taylor.

Draya, 35, ditched her fiancé Orlando Scandrick, 33, last December after dating him for years. The two exes share a son, Jru Scandrick.

Now she's happily dating an NFL quarterback who seems to be drama-free.

The 31-year-old Virginia Tech standout was the sixth round NFL draft pick in 2011 and signed with the Los Angeles Chargers in 2019 after playing for the Ravens, Bills and Browns.

There was confusion about how his name is pronounced (his teammates called him "TIE-rod" for years). Tyrod's mother finally confirmed his name is pronounced "tuh-ROD."

Draya and Tyrod were rumored to be dating each other, but they kept their romance under wraps because social media can be cancer to a new relationship. The two decided to finally go public with their relationship on Oct. 24.

"kisses land softly," the 50-year-old singer captioned the shot.

One of Berry's mystery feet photos was posted on Instagram in July along with a red heart emoji.

It came weeks after the actress shared why she has been single for so long since her divorce from French actor Olivier Martinez during an Instagram Live chat with pal Lena Waithe.

"I've learned a lot being with my children," Berry said. "They are the best company for me right now, and when I divorced Maceo's dad I've been pretty alone by myself going on three years now. Decidedly so, for sure.

"I have decided to take time. I'm very much a relationship-oriented person; I always want to be with someone. But I decided, 'No I'm going to slow my roll, I'm going to take a minute and I'm going to spend time with me'. And it's been so great that I think I might stay like this!"
