During an appearance on “CBS Mornings” Wednesday (Feb. 8), Michael B. Jordan clarified to co-host Gayle King that he was “joking” when he said that he is on the dating app Raya during his recent “Saturday Night Live” monologue before revealing how he copped with his breakup from Lori Harvey.

“I think for me it’s just that I was lucky enough to have a lot of work,” the actor told King. “I’m a firm believer in that what’s for you is what’s for you, and coming out of that situation — not to give it, you know, any energy and kind of move from that — is you know, it was an experience for me to grow and learn.”

The 35-year-old said that he is confident that “so many great things” still lie ahead for him. “I’m in my light right now. This is my Jordan year, I mean that,” Jordan continued. “This is my year. There’s so much going on, so many blessings, so many great things.” He added, “This is at a point in my career where there’s not a lot of people telling me ‘no’ and everything’s wide open.”

Jordan and Harvey, 26, ended their relationship in June 2022 after more than a year of dating. According to PEOPLE, a source close to the model said that Harvey “wasn’t ready to commit” amid a focus on her career over a romantic relationship.

Jordan is set to make his directorial debut with Creed III, where he will also be reprising his starring role as boxer Adonis Creed. The film’s release date is March 3. “For myself, I put myself in a position where I had to sink or swim,” he told King of turning to directing in addition to acting. “I had to run towards my past, my inner demons, my insecurities and my fears and I tried to put a mirror up to that throughout this movie.”
