During a recent “Creed III” premiere event, Michael B. Jordan faced one of his high school bullies. Lore’l, the host of “The Morning Hustle,” revealed on a recent episode of her “Undressing Room” podcast that she went to high school with Jordan and was one of many students who teased him about his name.

Lore’l said: “You know what’s so crazy? I went to school with Michael B. Jordan at a point in life. And to be honest with you, we teased him all the damn time because his name was Michael Jordan. Let’s start there, and he was no Michael Jordan.”


I believe she was a bully back in high school and now he’s reminding her. #fyp #fyo #fy #michealbjordan #redcarpet #viralvideo #viraltiktok

“He also would come to school with a headshot,” she added. “We lived in Newark, that’s the hood. We would make fun of him like, ‘What you gonna do with your stupid headshot!?’ And now look at him!”

Lore’l later explained to the actor, “We go way back, all the way back to Chad Science in Newark. “Oh yeah, I was the corny kid, right?” Oh yeah. Jordan reacted by mockingly calling her out.

Lore’l denied ever calling him “corny” again, claiming that she only made fun of his name before changing the subject completely. “But, yeah, he’s obviously killing things out here.”
