Lori Harvey is focusing on herself. As a part of Essence’s Black Love issue, the SKN by LH founder opened up about self-love.

“This moment is about me,” Harvey said of her life right now. “I feel like it’s always been [about] me attached to something or someone. This time, it’s about me. Self-love, self-care, self-reflection. I’m being a little self-ish right now. It’s my time.”

She continued, “I know my worth, and I know my value. I’m not going to compromise that, or settle, or accept anything less than what I know I deserve. That’s where I’m at in my life right now. I’m not compromising my peace and happiness for anything or anybody.”

Although nothing has been confirmed, the model’s interview comes after she was rumored to be dating Snowfall actor Damson Idris. Over the weekend, the two stepped out for dinner at Olivetta in West Hollywood, CA, per the Neighborhood Talk. Harvey and Idris then reportedly meet with friends for Zack Bia’s birthday.

Following the cover’s publication, Idris took to social media to congratulate Harvey.

Back in June, Harvey and Michael B. Jordan called it quits after a year of dating. The model insists that she’s just trying to figure it all out while being in the public eye.

“What I would love for people to know is that I am a young woman just trying to figure it out–but I’m trying to figure it out in the public eye,” she told Essence. “That magnifies everything. It magnifies your mistakes. It magnifies the ups and downs of just navigating your life and figuring it out yourself.”
