Michael B. Jordan and Lori Harvey may be everyone's favorite new couple, but Steve Harvey isn't completely won over.

Steve Harvey, who is Lori Harvey's stepdad, shared his thoughts on Friday's episode of "The Steve Harvey Morning Show" when one of his co-hosts asked about the relationship.

"I like this one," Harvey said according to People and Complex. "I still got my eye on him. I mean I like him, but like I say to all of them, '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 (expletive). Just in case I need it'."

As of now, Harvey says he has no issues with Jordan and thinks he's a "nice guy," butthat can easily change.

"Cause, you ain’t the sexiest man in the world to me! Let’s be clear about that," the talk show host said alluding to the "Black Panther" star being crowned People's Sexiest Man Alive for 2020.

Jordan, 33, and Harvey, 24, went public with their relationship earlier this month.

Rumors about the couple's relationship status swirled for months as Jordan and Harvey were photographed in Atlanta together around Thanksgiving.

Almost two months after their Atlanta getaway, People's 2020 Sexiest Man Alive and the model each posted separate photos together on their respective Instagram accounts on Jan. 10 confirming speculations about their relationship status.

Jordan posted two photos, one looking into Harvey's eyes. Harvey posted a Polaroid photo collage with Jordan tagged. One photo featured Jordan kissing her cheek as she beams.

Jordan told People.com what he looks for in a girlfriend in his Sexiest Man Alive interview.

"A sense of humor, true understanding, because (an actor's) life is not conducive to a relationship — it’s really not," he said, "Somebody that’s nurturing. I've got a list."
