Steve Harvey has no issues with his stepdaughter Lori Harvey dating Michael B. Jordan.

On Friday, Harvey opened up about Lori's new romance with Jordan on his iHeartRadio podcast, "The Steve Harvey Morning Show."  The "Family Feud" host said he likes the "Black Panther" star but warned that he still has his eye on him.

"I like this one," Harvey said, jokingly adding, "I still got my eye on him."

"I mean, I like him but like I say to all of 'em, 'I might like you, I might approve of you, but I got a thumb-size section of my heart filled with nothing but pure hatred for your a--. Just in case I need it,'" he explained. "Like right now? Nice guy…But I got this little section partner, where all I gotta do is click a switch and I can hate your a--."

Jordan and Lori's relationship is getting serious two weeks after they made their romance Instagram official. Both of their families reportedly approve of them dating, according to an insider.

"Michael B. Jordan’s family likes Lori, and vice versa. Lori is everything Michael’s family could have hoped for him to find. She’s lovely, respectful and fits in perfectly," the unnamed source told Entertainment Tonight.

"Her friends also think he’s great for her," the insider continued. "Everyone around them approves of their relationship. Things have gotten serious fast, but there have been no red flags. They’re both totally invested, committed and very happy.”

Jordan and Harvey first sparked romance rumors in November, but they only made things public on Jan. 10. However, the two have been dating for four months and have been friends for years, the tipster said.

Just recently, the couple got cozy while enjoying the beach in St. Barts. Jordan was photographed on a yacht embracing his bikini-clad girlfriend while wrapping a towel around her.

"They have a lot of fun together and Michael has been ready for a serious relationship for awhile," a source said, before noting that Jordan had never gone public with a partner before Lori.
