The Kardashian’s are America’s royal family as they constantly grace the tabloids. Kylie Jenner just had her baby with rapper Travis Scott, Khloe is going to pop any day now with her child (whose father is NBA player Tristan Thompson), and Kimye are just being Kimye. With all the hubbub around these ladies, one famous sister usually get’s left out of the mix: Kourtney.
We all know the eldest sister for being one of the more level-headed of the bunch. Throughout Keeping Up with the Kardashians, she has been the voice of reason for the family’s otherwise ridiculous antics.
Although Kourtney was with her boyfriend, Scott Disick, for nearly a decade, the couple called it quits in 2015, leaving her single and ready to mingle. It didn’t take her long to pick up former boxer and model, Younes Bendjima, and their relationship seems to be getting serious as of late.
So, before there is another huge televised wedding and messy divorce, let’s get to know a little bit more about Bendjima, and how he won Kourtney’s heart.
Younes was born in 1993 in Algeria where he grew up working at his father’s restaurant. While he was not helping bus tables, Younes was training in the boxing ring. He is fluent in Arabic, French, and English, and lives half his life in NYC and the other in Paris. The latter, was where he first met Kourtney.
But first, how does a humble Algerian kid get to be next in line for the Kardashian throne? Well, while he was living in New York, Bendjima was approached by a modelling agent, and quickly made waves on the runway. Standing 6’2,” he’s been seen rocking clothes for Burberry, Ralph Lauren and Givency. His popularity soon skyrocketed, leading him to meet Kourtney at PAris fashion week, in some pretty odd circumstances.
The couple met in France in October 2016, which is when Kim’s apartment was infamously robbed, with the crooks making off with thousands of dollar worth of jewelry.
Since then, the two lovers have been spotted overseas, in NYC, and in Hollywood, with many fans wondering if it’s time for another Kardashian wedding. But, it seems that Younes and Kourtney are taking things one step at a time.
That’s probably because Kourtney’s been shy about her love life since her relationship with Disick crashed and burned in the public eye. But recently, she posted a photo on Instagram that made waves across the internet.
The 38-year-old took a raunchy selfie with Younes as the couple wore matching Calvin Klein underwear. Scott must have been wishing he wasn’t such a d-bag to Kourtney for all those years!
Well, we think Disick isn’t too upset about his ex’s new boy toy though. He looked pretty content as he recently took his kids, and his barely-legal girlfriend, Sofia Richie, to Cabo San Lucas in a private jet for a family vacation.
While Kourtney and Scott passively feud over social media, Bendjima’s ex, British model, Jourdan Dunn, doesn’t seem to mind that his relationship has a 14-year age gap. Dunn met Bendjima in 2015 at the Met Gala in New York, and they dated for a little over a year. Rumor has it that Younes moved on to Kourtney only one week after he dumped Jourdan!
Finally, it seems everyone is happy with their current relationships, and that’s probably the last we’ll hear about Kourtney for a while. That is, until Younes pops the question!
