Kourtney Kardashian’s young boyfriend complains about her doing her job

Kourtney Kardashian, 39, has been with model Younes Bendjima, 25, for over a year now! Hecate usually covers their relationship, but I could have sworn it wasn’t that long. Kourtney premiered Younes, then just 23, at Cannes in May of 2017. The two have gone on countless vacations and Kourtney has posted umpteen bikini photos in the time they’ve been together.

For some reason a recent Instagram photo in which Kourtney is showing her booty in a high cut bikini, half of which you can see above (here’s a link to the full version, our advertisers don’t like booty pics), prompted Younes to make a negative comment. It’s since been deleted, dismissed and then explained further, more on that in a moment, he commented on the photo “That’s what you need to show to get likes?

Apparently this has been an issue for these two for quite some time. E! has a whole insider piece about how it’s driven a wedge in their relationship.

Apparently this issue has arisen in the past, with a source telling E! News, “Kourtney doesn’t appreciate Younes posting his feelings in a public forum and being impulsive. She’s frustrated that he continues to get upset about it. She isn’t going to stop doing what she’s doing and feels like he needs to understand and deal with it.”

His emotionally-charged response was, of course, done on an impulse and he now regrets the action. “Younes gets jealous and can be possessive of Kourtney. When she posts half naked pictures, he gets very upset. He wants her for himself and doesn’t want to share her with the world,” the insider explained.

The relationship drama comes after the pair’s return from an, “incredible few weeks together in Europe.” And while the two enjoyed the opportunity to spend some quality time together in the sea, “it was sad when they had to say goodbye and she returned to the States. He’s been missing her like crazy and got emotional.”

Hence the overreaction to the otherwise routine social media posts. “Kourtney has explained its part of her job and it’s not going to change. But it still makes him uncomfortable and upset. He overreacted and put up a comment without thinking it through. Then he realized what he did made it even worse. He was just not thinking in the moment and got emotional,” the Kard source said.

Ultimately, the Balmain model “wants to be able to deal with this side of Kourtney’s life and knows he needs to accept it if they are going to be together.”

So is this a setup for their breakup? The fact that the comment was deleted so quickly makes me think it was genuine and that Kourtney is just following her family business model of exploiting their personal problems for headlines. That begs the question – why the hell did this take so long? It’s Kourtney’s JOB to post pics like this and get likes. This has been her job since well before Younes was on the scene. Plus he posts shirtless pics of himself to Instagram all the time, and has posed for these type of photos with Kourtney. Kourtney’s fans are trolling him for this. How is this any different?

This dude is well past his usefulness and Kourtney needs to find someone who supports her career. There are countless young hot models who would be thrilled to be Kourtney’s plus one. Then again, he’s playing a role that we’ve seen other men play at the end of their relationship with a Kardashian. They make mistakes, we hear all about it and then they get dragged in the press. It doesn’t necessarily mean the relationship is over, Kourtney and Khloe are especially forgiving, but in this case I think we’re being prepared for it.

    Well I hope this is a pre-cursor to a break up. She could certainly do much better — she’s quite bad about dating down IMO (looking at you, Scott).

    • Tiffany :) says:

      No doubt, this is 100% scripted. He’s playing the role he was hired to play. Kourtney needs something to happen in her storyline and men are always the villains.

      • Stubbylove says:

        Ditto. She has terrible taste in men so far in her life. She’s 39 with 3 kids – time to choose a man, not a boy.

  2. Lightpurple says:

    She has a job?

  3. Tanesha86 says:

    If they started dating in May of 2017 they’ve been together for a little over one year right? I’m so confused 😵

    • Squirrelgirl says:

      I think that’s when they did their “roll out” publicly but were dating much before that?

    • Celebitchy says:

      I needed coffee when I wrote that. Thanks for giving me the benefit of the doubt! Fixed it.

    • Raina says:

      Kourtney K. has been 39 for 25 years, too, so who knows how time rolls for them. I swear I’ve had like 3 birthdays where I kept hearing she was 39.
      I want some of what she’s having. Minus him.
      I can’t with dating younger guys anymore. It’s like running a day care for one.

  4. Loopy says:

    Maybe I am projecting..i honestly don’t know why these self sufficient ladies are going out with these young guys still sowing their wild oats. Young athletes and models,I could never.

    • Veronica S. says:

      I think it’s fine as long it’s mainly a fling and not too serious. It’s when people marry the significantly younger partner that I side-eye their life choices. I find this more problematic because he’s a passive aggressive moron than anything about his age or profession.

      • Agenbiter says:

        And fine if they use protection (assuming they are really intimate and it’s not just an act)

  5. Nancy says:

    Kourtney is different than the other spawn of those people. She doesn’t hook up with everyone (hello Khloe), she is more family oriented. I think she likes this guy. He was being a jealous boy, don’t think there’s a conspiracy here or a set up for that show. Fourteen year age difference doesn’t matter now, but it will eventually. Enjoy it now Kourtney, he’s hot and rich!

  6. Lucy says:

    Ugh. Run, Kourt. Run as fast as you can.

    • Jag says:

      That’s what I say, too! My first fiance was “jealous” like that, which lead to controlling, stalking, emotionally abusing, and then physically abusing. She has her pick of guys and needs to dump him asap.

  7. Veronica S. says:

    LOL, I’m sorry, I know the K-clan is the worst, but I am baffled by women who put up with this sh*t from men. If I want to wear a cheeky bikini, I will damn well do so. If I want to post it on social media, I will damn well do so. And I don’t care what his opinion is nor for his underhanded slut shaming and passive aggression. Have some self-respect, Kourtney. Dump the idiot.

    • Jay says:

      Totally with you. Enough with these weak, weak men.

    • hkk says:

      Yes, this. I’m more of a modest lady myself but that’s my choice. I couldn’t be with a man who considered me chattel! I’ll show what I want (or not in my case lol), when I want! This is such a basic, no-brainer, dump this guy!

    • Otaku Fairy... says:

      @hkk: That’s how I am with them too- not just about clothing (I like both modest and immodest stuff), but about misogynistic attitudes too. They’re not getting a girl who’s become Passively Cool with any of that tradcon nonsense. If this is a problem for them, they’re the chaff.

      That’s also why it’s kind of messed up when people’s response to a grown woman being immodest is to clutch pearls about how boyfriends, husbands, or fathers must be thinking though.

    • CuriousCole says:

      Has he made other posts or comments like this? If not, I am baffled why you feel this one comment is grounds for dumping. I don’t tolerate sexism or misogyny either but there is a big difference between controlling, manipulative partners and people who prefer to have some parts remain special and private within a committed relationship.

    • Jag says:


  8. BaBaDook says:

    Ugh. He sounds like an immature tool.

  9. Pam says:

    I’ve never understood what anyone saw in her. She’s just ok in the looks, nothing special. Just born rich!

  10. Beth says:

    What was he expecting? He must’ve known nothing about the Kardashians before they started dating.

  11. me says:

    I think it’s all fake pr because the new season of their show is starting in a few weeks. They probably came up with this “idea” together just so we’d talk about them. I put NOTHING past this family. The truth is he knew from the beginning that this family likes to get as naked as possible, plus he also likes to put half naked pics of himself up on the net. I don’t believe this dumb fake relationship drama one bit.

  12. Michael says:

    Look at me Scott, LOOK AT ME!!!!

  13. mtam says:

    I don’t care if this is drummed up drama for their show or w.e. What they’re teaching young girls by normalizing their male partner’s abusive and toxic behaviour is awful.

    -With Khloé and staying with a serial cheater bf

    -With Kourtney and this bag of garbage controlling and sexist bf -which to me is a sign of emotionally abusive behaviour

    -and Kim, and defending Kanye supporting Trump.

    Whether their relationships are fake or not, they are influencers, and their partner’s behaviours are should not be accepted.

    ***Also i’m 100% not saying they’re responsible for their partner’s behaviours, i’m just saying the way they support it in the media (and get the media to normalize it like in this article) is pretty bad.

    • Agenbiter says:

      Yes, and add Kylie, purportedly a self-made near-billionaire, needing to show her rump while straddling a clothed Travis on the GQ cover in order to look ‘feminine’.

      • mtam says:


        Yes, totally! agreed.
        The sad thing is she is more used to playing that sexed up doll, performing for the male gaze. That’s what’s natural and normal for her (and for her fans to see her as). Whereas in the “power suit” she looked like she was playing dress up. That’s messed up.

      • Otaku Fairy... says:

        She’s already a ‘billionaire’ (though I refuse to call her ‘self-made’). What use does she have for a classy image built on ‘respectable’ optics and attire, if that’s not what she honestly cares about? It’s not sad. Whether rich, poor, or middle class, not every woman is going to prioritize or even value modesty.
        It would be a little hypocritical to get mad at Kourtney Kardashian’s boyfriend or other men when they make these kinds of complaints, only to basically say about Kylie: “It’s ok if a woman sometimes waits to surprise her man like that after work at home, but such a thing can never be portrayed on a men’s magazine.”

      • Agenbiter says:

        Otaku Fairy – Right, who cares? Stormi can hang that picture of Mom in her college dorm room.

      • Otaku Fairy... says:

        @Agenbiter: Yep! It’s not like that picture shows anything college-aged folks aren’t watching, doing, sending, and reading on the regular anyway. By that point, we seen it all before. #Trust.

  14. Nadai says:

    Sure, he knew going in to it that this is what she does to be at the level that the Kardashian’s are but I’m assuming he feels as if she doesn’t NEED to. Because she really doesn’t, but she WANTS to. Which is fine, she can do whatever tf she wants but I get where he’s coming from in a sense. I don’t think any boyfriend/husband/girlfriend/wife would enjoy seeing their significant others ASSets posted all over social media. Meh. Some people have real problems.

    • me says:

      No she NEEDS to. When was the last time anyone talked about Kourtney? What other storyline will they have for her on their show this season? All she does is go on vacations with her bf…that’s IT. They have to create some drama for her “character” and “man problems” is always the go-to with her “character”. Slowly in the past few weeks, the Kardashian/Jenners have pushed their way back into the media because they need pr for their show…next is Kim…I am sure they are keeping the “biggest storyline” for last.

  15. Dragonlady sakura says:

    It is a setup for a new storyline. Kourtney, Just don’t have three more kids by another useless man and you will be fine.

    • Sue says:

      Word is her youngest is Bieber’s.

      “.. don’t let your kids grow up to be cowboys..”

  16. antipodean says:

    I almost never comment on these ridiculous people, but the thought occurred to me, aren’t all these men just stooges in all their lives? Only good for one or two things, and then they are given the flick for a new iteration. This one is nearing his sell by date, and by the way, Mr Pot, Mister Kettle is on the phone.

  17. Killjoy says:

    I feel like Kourt just isn’t here to have a life partner, and I don’t know if that’s really a bad thing. She never seemed to care much about what Scott did — beyond giving her three adorable kids and generating storylines. I’m very much a life partner/relationship person, so I can’t understand how she can tolerate this little idjit, but to each her own…

  18. Heather says:

    This guy must either be the most naive in the world or the biggest fool ever. Who dates a Kardashian and expect not to share them with the world? Oversharing is their brand!

  19. MinkFur says:

    You guys actually believe this manufactured bs? This is clearly to drum up interest in her failed storyline, because her relationship is the only thing thats keeping her in the press. Please, as if he cares. He’s her sugar baby.

    • ME says:

      I know right? It’s all fake. This isn’t the first time since dating him that she’s posted a pic like that…why would it bother him now? He also posta similar pics of himself. I don’t believe this fake pr stunt they are pulling…they just need ratings for their show.

  20. RspbryChelly says:

    Getting “serious” w a 23 y/o male model when you’re 39 w 3 kids is IMO, ridiculous. I’m almost her age & I could NOOOOTTTTT be w someone in their early 20s. That’s playtime for them. I’m not saying there’s anything wrong w the age difference, I’m saying I’m sure they’re on 2 entirely different stages/levels right now. Look at the last pic of them holding hands…he looks like a kid that has no clue! I think she’s w him to try & prove a point to Scott & (hopefully) ready to move on. But c’mon, Kourtney…..make better choices!

  21. Pandy says:

    “Job”??? Is that what we call it? Soft core instagram.

  22. nemo says:

    eh, it still reeks PR STUNT to me.

  23. Littlefishmom says:


  24. Miffy says:

    Scripted or not can we talk about how toxic it is that they try to justify his public humiliation and put-down of his partner as ‘He just misses her.’
    Is this the globally broadcasted adult version of ‘He only pulls your hair because he likes you’? Regardless of personal feelings for the Kardashians their demographic are people who want to emulate them. Their ongoing tolerance of partner’s piss poor behaviour is very worrying.
    If he slams you on social media? He just misses you.
    If he cheats on you constantly while you’re pregnant? You just need to work on things.
    If his erratic behaviour is jeopardising your career? He’s just creative.
    Granted all possibly just plot lines for them but there are thousands of easily influenced individuals watching and absorbing this nonsense.

  25. Katie says:

    Dump him. Men who do this s&** are insecure jealous asshats.

    At the same time, I am sick of all the Kardashian’s flaunting their asses. Like are you a family of baboons?

    Not sexy- too much. It’s raunchy. No maybe in a small way I understand where he is coming from. But then don’t date a Kardashian.
