Why Kourtney Kardashian Is Putting Dating on Hold: ‘I Don’t Feel Like I Need Anybody’
Kourtney Kardashian isn’t sweating the single life. In fact, she’s enjoying the freedom and being a single mom. In a new promo for Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kourtney dishes on the reasons why she doesn’t “need anybody” in her life right now.
Why Kardashian isn’t in a rush to start dating
When the episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians was filming, Kardashian and Younes Bendjima had split and her fling with Luka Sabbat had ended. She said she wasn’t feeling any desire to rush into dating again and is “content” with being single.
As she chatted with friend Larsa Pippen, Kardashian explained: “I just feel like I’m in a different place where I just don’t feel like I need that.”
She added, “I’m content hanging out with my friends. I just feel like I’m on a different vibe. I feel so content with just myself. I don’t feel like I need anybody.”
Pippen had recently filed for divorce from husband Scottie Pippen in November 2018 and Kardashian told her: “You’re in a different place than that. And if that’s what you’re into, I don’t want to be judgmental of you.”
Pippen responded, “Like you were a month ago.”
Kardashian prefers to stay low-key
Kardashian, who is raising her three kids, Mason, Penelope, and Reign, explained why she’d rather be “silly” at home, saying, “I just feel like I don’t need anyone else to hang out with.”
She added, “Texting random guys that are meaningless. My energy isn’t going toward partying or guys.”
Despite her single status, Kardashian, Bendjima, and Sabbat continue to be friendly, with both of her exes attending her birthday party earlier this year.
Last month, Kardashian and Bendjima were seen holding hands, but a source called it a “friend situation,” telling PEOPLE: “They spend some time together. It’s more of a friend situation.”
The source added: “You could call it casually dating. It’s definitely not a relationship. They have known each other for a long time and Kourtney has fun with him. She isn’t happy about being photographed with him though. She has been trying to just keep it private.”
Is Kourtney quitting KUWTK?
In the previous KUWTK trailer, Kourtney seemed to imply that she might be done with the reality show.
Kris Jenner weighed in how her daughters fight “dirtier” than they used to, noting, “I feel like the really funny side of you guys [used to] outweigh the mean side. And I feel like it’s got a little Mean Girls.”
She added: “As much as I love you, you fight a lot dirtier than you used to fight. I feel like we’ve just got to hit the reset button. You guys have to get back to the fact that we’re family.”
Kourtney seemed to be fine with the whole show ending, with Khloe asking her, “[So] you would be happy if the show ended?”
Kourtney responded, “Yeah! Who cares!”
Tensions reached a boiling point with Kourtney saying, “Kim can be the biggest f**king evil person on the planet” and Kim sharing, “We’re firing Kourtney. She’s out.”
