We all know how private Lori Harvey has been since becoming one of the country’s most-watched socialites, but in an exclusive interview on Essence’s Black Love issue, the magazine’s January/February cover star opened up about her life, love and burgeoning career.

“This moment is about me,” Harvey told the publication. “I feel like it’s always been [about] me attached to something or someone. This time, it’s about me. Self-love, self-care, self-reflection. I’m being a little selfish right now. It’s my time.”

She added: “I know my worth, and I know my value. I’m not going to compromise that, or settle, or accept anything less than what I know I deserve. That’s where I’m at in my life right now. I’m not compromising my peace and happiness for anything or anybody.”

Rumors have swirled in recent days that the SKN by LH founder is currently dating Snowfall actor Damson Idris after pictures surfaced of the pair out for dinner at Olivetta in West Hollywood. Following dinner, it was reported that the two went on to meet with friends for Zack Bia’s birthday.

Neither has confirmed the rumors, but shortly after the 25-year-old announced that she was Essence’s latest cover star, Idris took to social media to congratulate Harvey.

Earlier this year, the Memphis-born model and daughter to comedian Steve Harvey made national headlines when it was confirmed that she and Creed star Michael B. Jordan had called it quits after dating for a year.

Neither Jordan nor Harvey have opened up about the breakup, although Harvey did allude to her former relationship in an interview with Teyana Taylor stating that in the future, she would be “dating on her own terms.

At the time of the breakup, a source told PEOPLE that “Michael and Lori are both completely heartbroken. They still love each other.”

The source continued: “Michael matured a lot over the course of their relationship and was ready to commit for the long term. He let down his guard with her, opening up emotionally in a romantic relationship for the first time,” adds the source. “They had great times together and brought out the best in each other.”

Last December, Jordan told The Hollywood Reporter that he “finally found what love was. When I was younger, I don’t know if I could have handled the onslaught of opinions and being picked apart, and also being conscious of what the other person’s going to go through. It takes a special person to deal with that.”

He continued: “There’s a premeditated planning of staying out of the way [of the public eye] that sometimes kills spontaneity and intimacy. I wanted to take that away and give this the best chance it had, in this weird world that we live in, to be somewhat normal. Long story short, I think it’s just the timing of everything. It was the right time for me,” he added. “Yeah. I’m happy.”
