It seems that Michael B. Jordan is committed to their relationship. While many people lavished their lovers with traditional Valentine’s Day gifts like jewelry and chocolates over the weekend, the “Black Panther” star took things to the next level. Instead of simply buying his girlfriend, Lori Harvey, a leather handbag or a silk scarf from the Parisian fashion house Hermès, he bought her shares in Hermès International RMS, + 0.71%.
“Greatest gift ever … baby bought me shares in Hermes,” Harvey wrote in an Instagram story that featured a peek at the certified receipt. Harvey did not disclose how much he has now invested in the luxury brand. But if the rest of his Valentine’s weekend is any indication, Jordan didn’t skimp on his actions. The “Creed” actor also rented an aquarium for a private tour, and a video showed an underwater tunnel decorated with flowers and candles. Jordan also hosted a fancy dinner at Nobu Japanese Restaurant with more candles and bouquets of roses in the aquarium. He’s not the first celebrity to make headlines by giving stock as a gift. In 2017, Kanye West treated his wife, Kim Kardashian, with a top-tier stock portfolio that included stocks worth hundreds of thousands of dollars from companies like Apple AAPL, -1.61%, Amazon AMZN, -0.27%, and Netflix. NFLX. + 0.14%. “Best husband alert!” she posted at the time. Related: You can give stock as a gift, and there are tax benefits too.
