Lori Harvey recently decided to enjoy herself amid her recent legal troubles.
The stepdaughter of Family Feud host Steve Harvey was spotted in Beverly Hills on Wednesday, January 22. According to Hollywood Life, the model was having some girl time with her friend Asia Carter, as the two friends attended Matsuhisa — a known celebrity hotspot — for their dinner for the night.
Both ladies opted for a casual look for their night out. In the photos, Harvey was snapped while walking in front of Carter and wearing a small, black hoodie. The model paired her look with camouflage jogger pants and black high-top sneakers. Carter, meanwhile, walked slightly behind her friend while rocking a burgundy tracksuit, which fits loosely on her body. She paired her outfit with white tennis shoes. Harvey and Carter both wore black handbags in the photo and sported matching, center-part hairstyles while smirking for the camera.
Harvey seems to be in good spirits as she prepares to try her case in court next month. The Instagram influencer recently pleaded not guilty in a hit-and-run accident that took place in October 2019. She was detained in Los Angeles after her car was found flipped next to a parked car. Harvey allegedly attempted to flee the scene before being found a few feet away by the police. Once the news broke out regarding the arrest, the model took a break from her popular Instagram page.
If convicted, Harvey currently faces two misdemeanors for alleged her involvement in the crash. The model received her charges earlier this month when she was on vacation in Jamaica.
Criminal attorney and California Legal Counsel founder Sharen H. Ghatan Esq. spoke to HL regarding the case and said that Harvey’s lawyers should fight hard to get the charges against her dropped altogether.
“There’s room to negotiate if she allows her attorney the flexibility to negotiate private one on one therapy sessions, anger management, as well as community service hours to ‘earn’ the dismissal,” Ghatan said. “Let’s acknowledge how fortunate it is that there’s no actual person injured and that there’s no driving under the influence allegation, as these are taken extremely seriously by the court.”
As of this writing, Harvey has yet to address her pending court case. Instead, she has been spending time with her new beau, Future, as well as her other friends. The social media influencer’s famous stepdad has also been mum regarding the charges.
