Steve Harvey Says He's 'Team Lori' After Daughter's Breakup from Michael B. Jordan: 'I Support Her'

"As long as you don't put your hands on my daughter, I don't give a damn what you do," Steve Harvey said, discussing Lori's split from Michael B. Jordan

Steve Harvey's got his daughter's back — but he has no beef with Michael B. Jordan.

After PEOPLE exclusively broke over the weekend that Lori Harvey and Jordan, 35, had split, Steve said on Monday's episode of The Steve Harvey Morning Show, "I'm team Lori, 1,000 percent. She's my daughter. I love her, I support her."

"Things happen," continued the television host, 65. "It's hard to be young and in the limelight and have a successful relationship. Look, as long as everybody can walk away in peace, be friends … I ain't heard nobody say they busted no windows or nothing."

"As long as you don't put your hands on my daughter, I don't give a damn what you do," Steve said.

On Monday, Steve said on his show that he believes Jordan "is still a cool guy, from what I know" and added, "It's a breakup. I'm pretty sure they'll be fine. People break up all the time."

"I just wish I could've broken up without the cost factor!" Steve went on to joke. (The star has gone through two divorces.) "I gotta start learning from my children — get out early! … I waited way too late."

Also on Monday, a source close to model/influencer Lori, 25, told PEOPLE that the founder and CEO of SKN by LH "is young and wasn't ready to commit" to Jordan.

"She is very focused on her career," the insider added.

According to the source, Lori "realized that they weren't on the same page" while she and the Black Panther actor "were making plans for their future."

"She still wants to have fun and be free," the insider said. "Michael is a great guy. She is sad that their relationship didn't work out, but she is moving on."

Reps for Lori and Jordan have not commented on their split.
