How Did Kris Jenner and Her Boyfriend Meet?

After more than four years together, Kris Jenner and her boyfriend Corey Gamble are still going strong. Jenner and Gamble began dating in 2014 following her split from Olympian Bruce Jenner (now Caitlyn Jenner), but they’ve kept their relationship relatively quiet.

One question people would love the deets on is: How did Kris Jenner and her boyfriend meet? So, let’s look back at the early stages of their relationship and talk about it.

He approached her

According to E! News, they met in August 2014 while celebrating fashion designer Riccardo Tisci’s 40th birthday party in Ibiza, Spain. “She had on this nice-a** dress, and she was looking good,” Gamble recalled in a 2015 episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. “I waited till she was off on her own, and we started talking.” 

Gamble said he asked Jenner to dance and that “it went from there.” Shortly after, he started appearing on the family’s reality show, traveling the world with Jenner, and bonding with her grandkids.

Will they get married?

Fans of the Kardashian-Jenners would probably love to see Gamble propose to the momager, but even if he did, Jenner might not be interested. While she appears to be very much in love, it’s kind of a “been there, done that” situation.

“You know, I’ve done that twice and it didn’t work out so well,” she told Ellen DeGeneres. “So I don’t know — you never know. I’m going to take a page out of Goldie and Kurt’s book. Or Kourtney’s book. I think as long as things are going so well, why ruffle it up?”

Jenner echoed those comments during an episode on Laura Wasser’s podcast, Divorce Sucks!, telling the host, “You know, you never say never, but I often say it’s just not what I think I need to do again based on my past.” She continued, “I’m in a really great relationship right now and I’m happy and I don’t want to mess that up.” 

What Jenner’s family thinks about Gamble

Some of Jenner’s family members think that Gamble is “secretive,” which has caused some tension. “Corey does tend to be pretty secretive and that does have me pretty guarded,” Khloé Kardashian said in a 2019 episode of KUWTK. “We don’t know Corey like that.”

In response, Jenner made it clear that Gamble will be sticking around, regardless of his behavior. “It’s really important for Khloé to understand that she really needs to get on my bandwagon because Corey is a part of the family, he isn’t going anywhere, and she needs to be nice,” she explained.

But Khloé isn’t the only one who has made such a comment. Kanye West apparently has similar feelings. In the same episode, he called out Gamble for not introducing any of his family to Jenner’s kids. His wife, Kim Kardashian, also chimed in, saying in a confessional that they’ve “all” felt wary of Gamble. 

Are they on to something?

In 2017, a source told People that Gamble’s relationship with Jenner is “more business than romantic.”

“Kris is basically his sugar mama,” the insider added. 

It does make you wonder, but if Jenner likes spending money on her beau, that’s her business. Besides, they do seem really happy together.
