Kourtney Kardashian And Younes Bendjima Have Reportedly Split
Younes Bendjima has come out and addressed the rumors with his latest Instagram stories:
The 39-year-old reality star – who has Mason, eight, Penelope, six, and Reign, three, with her former partner Scott Disick – and the hunky model are believed to have called time on their romance after two years together.
According to TMZ.com, Kourtney “pulled the plug on the relationship”, which began in 2016 during Paris Fashion Week, shortly before Kourtney’s sister Kim Kardashian West was robbed at gunpoint in her hotel room.
As of the time of writing, no reason has been given for their reported split and neither pair have confirmed the news, although TMZ does report they have both unfollowed one another on social media.
The reported split comes just one month after sources claimed the ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star was “serious” with her beau.
An insider said at the time: “She is incredibly happy with Younes. They are getting serious. Younes is very close to her kids and loves spending time with them. The kids really like him. Kourtney is having the best time in Europe.”
And Kourtney previously praised Younes for helping her find the balance between romance and family.
Speaking in the early stages of her romance, she said: “I’ve definitely learned from my past relationship, where I really wouldn’t travel without the kids. I think it is important to take time, especially because my relationship is important to me. Just because those worlds aren’t colliding right now, just making sure that I make time for both. And I think going on a trip once in a while reminds me the importance of being present and in the moment when I’m home. I think it makes me the best mom I can be.”
The model has always cared for Kourtney, and her loved ones were hoping he would be a better fit for her than Scott.
A source shared: “It’s definitely serious. No one thought their relationship would last this long, but Kourtney is very happy. Younes has met her kids. Kourtney’s family really likes him. He is the opposite of Scott. He doesn’t party, isn’t flashy and really treats Kourtney with a lot of respect. It’s obvious that he really cares about Kourtney.”
