Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima Might Be Back Together After Split
In early August 2018, we were heartbroken to learn that Kourtney Kardashian and her beau of nearly two years, Younes Bendjima, decided to go their separate ways. Their break up didn’t exactly come as a shock, however, considering signs of trouble were definitely there.
A source spilled at the time, “Kourtney and Younes have been arguing since coming back from their big Italy trip and have truly not been getting along. [They] decided to take time apart but ultimately it led to a split.”
Kardashian and Bendjima were spotted on a date
However, it looks like Kardashian and Bendjima may be willing to give it another go. On Labor Day 2018, they were spotted spending time together on the down-low. The Daily Mail published photos of Kardashian and Bendjima in a black Range Rover SUV after picking up some Japanese takeout in Malibu. They reportedly watched the sunset while eating their dinner — which sounds an awful lot like a romantic date to us.
They clearly weren’t ready for their date to be over, as The Daily Mail reported Bendjima drove the SUV through the In-N-Out drive-thru on their way back to Kardashian’s Calabasas home.
They’d spent the weekend together in Malibu
Apparently, their reconciliation came the weekend before their takeout date. A source spilled to E! News that they’d made up while spending a few days together in Malibu. “She talked to him and listened to what he had to say,” the source explained. “He said he really didn’t want the relationship to end and missed her like crazy. He explained that a lot of what happened was a misunderstanding and he took responsibility. They ended up going to dinner.”
The source also noted, “Kourtney isn’t back together with him, but it’s a strong possibility that it’s going to happen. She’s not interested in anyone else and she loves him.”
Another source confirmed with Us Weekly, “There was some miscommunication,” however, “they worked it out and are giving it another shot.”
Bendjima sparked cheating rumors on a friends’ trip to Mexico
The announcement of their split came just one day after Bendjima sparked cheating rumors, which could have been part of the aforementioned “miscommunication.” While Bendjima was on a friends’ trip to Mexico, sources claimed he’d been getting too close for comfort with his female friend, Jordan Ozuna.
Ozuna, however, was quick to clear up any rumors. She said in a statement to E! News, “Younes and I are not involved romantically at all. We were both invited to Mexico for a mutual friend’s birthday party with 13 other people. It was nothing more than friends having fun at the beach. No, we aren’t romantically involved in any way, shape, or form.”
Bendjima also defended himself, taking to his Instagram Stories to share his truth. “They really want me to be the bad guy. F*ck your Hollywood bullsh*t (cant have fun with your friends no more). dailymail Where are my 12 other friendssss? Nice catch tho.”
“Once again you guys failed,” he added. “I’m not attached to this ‘life’ so you can’t touch me. I know who I am where I’m from and where I’m going and that bothers you. Only one opinion matter the one of my lord. Have a wonderful day.”
Bendjima previously criticized Kardashian on social media
These rumors may not have been all that split the couple up. In July 2018, Kardashian posted a revealing photo of herself on Instagram, wearing a thong bikini and oversized sun hat. Her caption read, “Don’t be shady, be a lady.” However, Bendjima ended up throwing some shade at his lady for the whole world to see.
He wrote in a since-deleted comment, “Thats what you need to show to get likes?”
A source explained to People why Bendjima may have been so heated over Kardashian’s photo. “He never liked that she posted sexy pictures of herself on social media,” they revealed. “He doesn’t want his girlfriend to do that. He gets that it’s her job, but wants her to post more covered-up pictures. He has always had a problem with this. This is the stuff they argue about and what made them split in the past.”
