Just when we thought that Kourtney Kardashian and her on-again-off-again beau, Scott Disick were trying to make it work, she steps out with another guy! From the looks of it, Kourtney’s new boyfriend, Younes Bendjima, is giving Scott a run for his money!
They may be going on vacations together and co-parenting their three kids, but Kourtney Kardashian doesn’t look like she will be getting back together with Scott Disick. And just when there was talk about the on-again off-again couple giving their relationship another try, Kourtney has a new man in her life.
She traded in the father of her kids for a younger model named Younes Bendjima, and fans are going crazy over the young hunk! Meanwhile, Kim recently lashed out at a woman with Scott in Dubai on KUWTK. Who is Younes Bendjima, you ask? Here’s everything to know about him, right here in our Younes Bendjima wiki.
#1. He’s a Model
Younes Bendjima is an up and coming model. He’s signed with the famous Next Model Management in New York, Los Angeles, and Paris. He’s also signed with Elite in Copenhagen and I LOVE in Milan. He has done various editorial shoots in magazines like Vogue (Spain) and Le Monde M Magazine.
He was living in New York when he was approached by a modeling scout. He debuted in 2013 walking for Givenchy and has done campaigns for brands like Hermes, Calvin Klein, Burberry, and Ralph Lauren. His net worth hasn’t been calculated, but might be soon if he continues to sign modeling contracts and hanging out with the Kardashians!
#2. He is Much Younger than Kourtney
Bendjima was born in 1993, that puts his age at 23 years old. He will celebrate his birthday tomorrow (May 5). Their romance rumors were fueled when she was spotted with him during her 38th birthday on April 18. They were spotted together for the first time back in December 2016.
But their age difference is hardly a matter of concern. Kourtney was once also romantically linked to a much younger Justin Bieber.
The 33-year-old Scott is also younger than Kourtney. Younes Bendjima and Kourtney Kardashian share the same circle of friends and he’s good pals with Jaden Smith, who also happens to be pretty close to reality TV’s first family. He even counts Sofia Richie, Rita Ora, and Justin Bieber among his friends. (Sounds like a complex web of rumored romances and exes!)
#3. He was a Boxer
The model and his family are from Algeria, where he worked in his father’s restaurant. At some point in his life he took up boxing. We’re not sure if he won any titles or matches, but now we know the secret to this 6’2” hunk’s body.
Bendjima’s mother lives in Paris and he splits his time between the modeling hubs of Paris and New York. His mixed heritage also made him fluent in French, Arabic and English.
#4. He Dated Jourdan Dunn
It’s not Younes Bendjima’s first time dating a famous older lady! Before Kourtney, he was in a relationship with British model, Jourdan Dunn. The 26-year-old is famous as the first black model to walk a Prada runway in more than a decade, and the first solo black model to grace the cover of British Vogue in 12 years. On top of that, she’s also a Victoria’s Secret model!
They met at the Met Gala in 2015 and were often seen together, including an appearance at a 2015 New Year’s Eve bash. They split in October 2016 and in December, Bendjima was seen leaving a hotel in Beverly Hills with Kourtney Kardashian.
Thus sparked speculation that there was a romance brewing between them, even though there was also talk that Kourtney and Scott were trying to make their relationship work. Kourtney was once again spotted with Bendjima recently, which looks like proof that she’s not getting back together with Scott anytime soon!
