Unless you have been living under a rock, then you would know that the latest “it couple” in Hollywood is none other than Michael B Jordan and Lori Harvey. Jordan is of course popular for his role as the villain, Kilmonger, in the 2018 blockbuster movie, Black Panther. He has also appeared in critically-acclaimed films such as Creed and was named People Magazine’s sexiest man alive in 2020. Harvey, on her own part, is also not slacking. She is a professional model and has worked for the likes of Calvin Klein, Chanel, and Dolce & Gabbana.
She is also huge on Instagram and has become an influencer on the platform. Beyond her own exploits, Lori also has an additional claim to fame as the stepdaughter of ace TV personality, comedian and author, Steve Harvey. It, therefore, means that wherever she goes, she has an array of accomplished individuals in her circle. But which out of these two men in her life has a higher net worth? Let’s find out.
How Michael B. Jordan Achieved his Net Worth Through Movies and Production Deals
Jordan has Featured in Several Movies, Including the 2018 Blockbuster, Black Panther.
Michael B Jordan draws the lion’s share of his net worth from his acting paychecks. The California native got his start as a child model. He then launched his acting career on TV as a teenager, appearing in single episodes of TV series such as The Sopranos. From single episodes, Jordan was able to gain recurring spots in TV series such as The Wire, All My Children, Parenthood, and Friday Night Lights. He then got his breakthrough with critically-acclaimed roles in movies such as Fruitvale Station and Creed. His performances made many name him as one to watch and he fulfilled that prophecy with his show-stealing performance in Black Panther.
His Production Company has Scored Multiple Deals with Amazon.
Jordan’s net worth has also benefitted from his fruitful relationship with Amazon. The Black Panther star featured in a well-received super bowl ad for the company’s flagship product, Alexa, in 2021. Beyond that, his production company, Outlier, has reached an agreement with Amazon Studios on a film and television deal. Under the terms of the deal, Jordan will produce a limited series on the life of Mohammed Ali. He will also feature in an Amazon original film known as Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse.
