After getting into trouble with the law, Lori Harvey had one person at the top of her call list: her father, Steve Harvey. An eyewitness to the accident said that Lori made a video call to her father after police arrived on the scene. After the charges were filed, Lori pleaded no contest to resisting or delaying a police officer, TMZ reports. The “SKN by LH” founder luckily avoided potential jail time by agreeing to serving two years on probation.
It’s no surprise that her dad was Lori’s first point of contact, as the two are extremely close. As the youngest of Steve’s seven children, Lori shares a special bond with Steve. Even though he is not her biological father, the “Family Feud” host readily became a father figure to Lori after marrying her mother, Marjorie Harvey. In fact, Steve legally adopted Lori and her two siblings, Jason and Morgan, in 2007.
Steve takes on an active parenting role with his children, passing down advice and lessons regularly. Lori told E! News (via Essence) that one of his main mottos greatly informs her approach to relationships. “Remember that you are the prize always…That’s like his golden slogan for me,” Lori shared. “It just means not compromising my values, my happiness, my peace. Not settling for less than what I know I deserve.”
