Just a few short months ago, engagement rumors were swirling – but now it appears that Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima are no more. The couple is believed to have split in recent weeks, with Algerian model Bendjima flying off to Mexico, where he was snapped sunbathing with several female friends. According to TMZ, Kardashian was the one who called off the relationship with the 25-year-old, following two years together. The pair first met in 2016 during Paris Fashion Week, after the mother-of-three split with long-term partner Scott Disick in 2015.
Kardashian and Younes’s split has come as a surprise to fans, as the pair recently traveled throughout Europe on a summer vacation. They were joined for some of the holiday by Kardashian’s children; Mason, 8, Reign, 3, and Penelope, 5. The pair have enjoyed several far-flung escapes in their time together, with 39-year-old Kardashian revealing in episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians that she wasn’t ready to combine her relationship and her three kids.
“I’ve definitely learned from my past relationship, where I really wouldn’t travel without the kids and I think it is important to take time — especially because my relationship is important to me and those worlds aren’t colliding right now — just making sure that I make time for both,” she said. “I think going on a trip once in a while reminds me the importance of being present and in the moment when I’m at home, and I think it makes me the best mom that I can be.”
Kardashian and Younes have since unfollowed each other on Instagram, with a source telling People “it didn’t end well.” Here’s wishing the pair a happy and healthy healing process.
