Kourtney Kardashian & Younes Bendjima have broken up, and he ‘cheated’

Syrian American Medical Society Event - Arrivals

This is one of the dumbest of all the Kardashian breakup stories, just FYI. For a while now, a little over a year, Kourtney Kardashian has been dating Younes Bendjima. She’s 39 and he’s 25 (although he looks younger). There’s always been a vibe of WTFery around their coupledom, like… maybe she just hired some dumb young guy to be her boyfriend? I’m just throwing that out there, to see what people think of it. Anyway, Younes and Kourtney traveled together and vacationed together and at least she got a new storyline beyond “Kourtney is fighting with Scott Disick again.” But because a 25-year-old is gonna do whatever the f–k he wants, he violated his contract (??) and went down to Mexico and enjoyed some time with other ladies. TMZ had the photos. Shortly after the photos came out, the breakup was officially announced.

Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima have called it quits, a source confirms to PEOPLE, adding that “it didn’t end well.”

The news comes as photos of Bendjima getting cozy with another woman in Mexico on Monday surfaced on TMZ. On his Instagram story, Bendjima denied the situation was romantic, writing: “They really want me to be the bad guy. F— your Hollywood bulls—, can’t have fun with your friends no more.”

And because this is likely a plotline on a future episode of KUWTK, Khloe and Kim also had to chime in and bully this poor dumb kid:

Kim Kardashian West sent some serious shade in Younes Bendjima‘s direction Tuesday following his split from Kourtney Kardashian. Just hours after photos of Bendjima getting cozy with another woman in Mexico surfaced, it was revealed that the model and Kourtney had split. A source told PEOPLE, “Younes was always supposed to be a rebound. Now with the pictures of Younes in Mexico, they are definitely not getting back together.”

However, Bendjima, 25, didn’t appear perturbed by the news as he shared a photo of himself on vacation with a group of men and women and enjoying lunch on his Instagram Story Tuesday. It seems that snap, combined with the photos of the model looking very cozy with a woman that was not her sister, left Kim, 37, far from impressed. On a screenshot of the photo and other posts by the male model shared on Instagram by the Shade Room, the KKW Beauty mogul commented, “Nice pics from your ‘boys trip.’” Kim also added a Pinnochio emoji, suggesting he was a liar.

Kourtney’s other sister, Khloe, also jumped to Kourtney’s defense after Bendjima’s comments. The star commented on the same screenshot, writing, “Alexa play “heard it all before” by Sunshine Anderson.”

These women are in their 30s. They’re all mothers with small children. And they’re all on social media, “clapping back” at Kourtney’s ex for… what exactly? For “cheating”? For not being the perfect rent-a-date? I don’t know. I also don’t buy all of this sh-t about Younes having a problem with Kourtney’s “revealing” Instagrams. I think this is all just a really dumb storyline for Lazy Kourtney.

    Stuff like this is why it cracks me up that people still believe anything on that show is real. How could they be coming to her defense if they’re all in a serious feud right now? Oh that’s right – because this is all a pre-planned storyline.

    He’s the bad guy right now because his contract is up and that’s what the script says. it probably didn’t generate as much attention as they thought it would so they’re done with it.

  2. Ninal says:

    He always looked out-out in their couple photos, like he was being held hostage. Like pick someone who at least doesn’t look miserable to be by your side, she’s a pretty girl so it shouldn’t be hard.

  3. Clare says:

    Can we call her Lazy Kourtney from now on??

    • Snazzy says:

      I second that motion

    • Tosca says:

      Actually I follow her on Instagram and subscribe to her app *ducks and hides*, and she is a wealth of resources for organic, natural foods and beauty products. I’ve been able to switch to organic, chemical free items in several facets of my life, and the products have been amazing. She works constantly. Photos, articles with advice, keeping herself fit and beautiful, participating in the constant KUWTK franchise… The other family members disappear from seasons when they are off doing something else, but Kourtney is always there, always showing up for work. I think because she doesn’t *also* run an empire she gets a lot of slack, but maybe she’d rather focus on her kids than run a cosmetic or athletic empire? How can we shade her for that?

      She was miserable with Scott for so long that I was happy to see her just have fun with Younes.

  4. Beth says:

    The girl he was getting “cozy” with is the woman Tyga dated after breaking up with Kylie. Does she want Lamar and Humphreys next?

  5. RBC says:

    Khloe is having issues in her relationship and now Kourtney broke up with her boyfriend. Does anyone get the feeling some new storylines are headed for KUWTK? Have all the sisters single and looking for love(or attention )? Whose relationship will hit the rocks next? Kim? Kylie? Kris?

  6. Cee says:

    LOL at Khloe “clapping” back at her sister’s cheating boytoy.

  7. Snowflake says:

    Why would Kourtney have to pay him to be with her? I’m 42 and get hit on by guys that age. She’s pretty and has a nice body. Kind of insulting, imo, to imply she has to pay for him.

    • Sojaschnitzel says:

      You raise a valid point, sister. Thank you. I’m your age aswell and while nobody ever hits on me, from any age range, I have often had 5-10 years younger boyfriends, including the current one. Last time I checked I didn’t pay for him LOL

    • Keke says:

      Agreed. I personally don’t like the context of this whole story. She dated a jerk and I feel that this article is excusing his behaviour

    • bondbabe says:

      But then again, would you, as a younger man, knowingly want to have any of these women with issues and NOT be paid for having to deal with it and any backlash you receive when you realize it’s not worth it?

  8. Littlefishmom says:

    Babadook- I just choked on my coffee!! Lol!! Your comment is fantastic.

  9. Mo' Comments Mo' Problems says:

    Meh…i mean he was good for the moment. Please, let us form a prayer circle so that she won’t get back together with Scott Dissick… Now…let’s hope she can find a good person that will convince to be out of the limelight and enjoy a normal life.

  10. me says:

    Oh please, they hate cheaters yet their mother was a HUGE cheater !

    This is all some b.s. for their usual story line how men always “do them wrong”. Same old sh*t different season.

  11. mtam says:

    *cue scripted storyline of [insert kardashian name] being the victim of [insert unreliable male companion under-contract name]*

    *cut promo for new season*


  12. Pandy says:

    Perhaps a stone faced older woman with a raft of brats wasn’t his forever love? Who da thunk it.

  13. me says:

    I kind of feel like Kim loves it when her sisters’ lives are a mess. It makes her feel better about her own life. I just find it odd that men always do these women wrong…never the other way around hmmmm.

  14. meh says:

    If some guy cheated on one of my sisters, I would absolutely leave snarky comments on his social media (if my sister said it was okay, of course). So on that side of things, at least, I am on board with them.

  15. Keke says:

    Paid him? Okay then. She’s hot and rich. I don’t think she needs to pay him. I’m 36. Younger guys go for me all the time. So insulting to imply it’s weird that older women can’t date a younger dude. The “but he looks younger” really rubbed me the wrong way. If the situation was reversed no one bats an eye.

    • me says:

      Yeah she’s an attractive woman, who is rich, and famous. She doesn’t need to “pay” any guy to want her. Her age has nothing to do with it. Some guys don’t care about that…in fact A LOT don’t care !

    I know I have & will continue to come hard for the Khloe apologists, but I think it should be said re: Kourtney’s ‘laziness’: Kourtney has worked for Kris since she was in her early teens. Kris borrowed money from Kourtney’s trust fund to float Caitlyn’s speaking tour ventures. All of this stuff about Kourtney not wanting to work relates back to the fact that she views herself as retired, not unemployed. She wasn’t the level of opportunist that Kris & Kim were/are, but she’s put in her time. Let her be a chill,rich woman with her babies, including the ones she dates.

    • me says:

      I remember early on it was Kourtney that did all the work for their DASH store. She also owned her own children’s store on the side with her mom. I think she probably feels that it’s time for her sisters to step up and let her relax just like in the beginning Kourtney did all the work and Kim did nothing more than follow Paris Hilton around. Kim wants to act like a big business woman when in reality they pay people to do the real work.

    • Sammie says:

      I’ve never heard any of this at all.
      I hope kris payed her the money back because it sounds as if it was left by her father and kris didn’t put anything in at all.

    • Tosca says:

      Vinot, thank you. I made a similar comment above. I didn’t even think of Dash, and I didn’t know about the trust fund scenario. Excellent points, and I agree, Kourtney gets maligned for no reason.

  17. Yes Doubtful says:

    I mean…he’s 25 with no kids, did she really think it would last forever? Gosh I hope this doesn’t mean she goes running back to Scott again!
