Inquiring Minds Want to Know… Who Is Lori Harvey’s Biological Father?

*Lori Harvey has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons as of late. 

She was all the rage this summer when rumors boiled over about her dating Sean Combs AFTER hooking up with one or both of his sons (allegedly). She was back in the headlines this week when the 22-year-old stepdaughter of Steve Harvey was arrested in Beverly Hills on Sunday (10-20-19) following a car accident in which her vehicle was rolled. 

Harvey, according to an OK Magazine report, initially walked away from the scene. A witness said Lori crashed her Mercedes SUV into another vehicle, flipping her car. The source claims Harvey had been texting and driving. The driver of the other vehicle pulled her from her car, and she allegedly attempted to flee the scene. When police arrived at the crash, she began Face-Timing with her famous dad.

At that point, the report says, Harvey was arrested on two counts: misdemeanor hit and run and delaying a police investigation. Then, she was released at the scene.

Steve has been married to Lori’s mother Marjorie for 12 years, but inquiring minds want to know: who is her biological father?

Marjorie was married to drug kingpin Jim Townsend before marrying Steve. We previously reported, the FBI and DEA began investigating Marjorie in the early ’90s while she was married to Townsend, now 70. He was indicted for attempting to buy 40 kilos of cocaine and sentenced to life in prison. Townsend served 26 years and was released in 2017 after being granted a pardon by then-President Barack Obama.

Townsend spoke exclusively to Radar Online earlier this year and revealed that he is penning a book and has no problem telling everything …  for the right price.

“I wrote two-thirds of the book. in prison,” Townsend said. Even though he “had reservations” about sharing his story because of his kids, he apparently said the hell with it. He also made clear that he doesn’t give a rat’s butt what his ex Marjoroe thinks of his tell-all plans. 

“I have no allegiance to Marjorie, she showed her hand,” he said. “I’m going…tell my story. It don’t matter [if she knows about it]. I’m pouring my heart out. No one knows what happened but me and Marjorie.”

Marjorie and Jim called it quits while he was incarcerated and she quickly hooked up with another drug dealer, Donnell Woods. He reportedly fathered her daughter Lori in 1997, and they married in 2000 before eventually parting ways. 

And there you have it.

Meanwhile, a couple of days before Lori got into her car accident, it was confirmed that the fling between she and Diddy was over. 

E! News reported that the pair had split, and that “Diddy is still healing and focusing on himself right now,” a source told the outlet. “He is not ready to be in a long-term committed relationship and is focusing on his kids right now.”
