Tell us how you really feel, Steve Harvey

As his daughter Lori Harvey's relationship with Michael B. Jordan continues to heat up the 'gram, the beaches of St. Barts and mountains of Salt Lake City, Steve was asked to weigh in on their very public displays of affection. 

His take on their budding romance? Let's just say MBJ should think twice before doing wrong by Lori.

"I still got my eye on him," the talk show host quipped on iHeartRadio's The Steve Harvey Morning Show. "I mean I like I him, but like I say to all of them, 'I might like you. I might approve of you, but I've got a thumb-sized section of my heart filled with nothing but pure hatred for you.' Just in case I need it."

As it stands, Steve thinks the actor is a "nice guy," then adding, "But I got this little section where all I gotta do is a click a switch and I'd hate your ass."

The Black Panther star, 33, was first linked to Lori, 24, in November when they celebrated Thanksgiving in her Atlanta hometown. The notoriously private A-lister has been anything but since Lori caught his eye. In fact, we know Michael calls the model "turtle" while she considers him her "nugget." 

And despite Steve's playful jabs, he's used to playing third wheel to Lori and her significant others. 

Back in 2019, Steve accompanied Lori and her then-rumored man Sean "Diddy" Combs on a vacation to Italy
