This low-key romance looks like it has legs…
They might not be the most publicly demonstrative couple, but Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima seem to enjoying each other’s company.
The US reality star and her Algerian model beau have travelled together, spent time with each other’s friends and family, and dressed up together for Halloween.
If that doesn’t mark a promising future, we don’t know what does. Read on for everything we know about the Bendjima-Kardashian romance.
Who is Younes Bendjima?
The 23-year-old model was born in Algeria, where he worked in his father’s restaurant and trained as a boxer before getting in front of the camera, The Sun reports.
Bendjima is trilingual, speaking Arabic, French and English. He lives between Paris and New York, the site says.
We can imagine he’d have a fair amount to talk about with Kardashian’s younger sister, Kendall Jenner. As a model he’s worked with brands like Givenchy, Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren.
When were they first linked?
At quite a dramatic time in Kardashian’s life, in fact. The pair met during Paris Fashion Week in October 2016, when Kourtney’s sister, Kim Kardashian West, was robbed at gunpoint in their hotel room.
While Bendjima and Kardashian hadn’t known each other long, he stepped up to help, W Magazine reports, acting as a translator between the family and French police.
What have they been up to since?
Spending a lot of time on private planes, from the looks of things. Kardashian and Bendjima holidayed in Egypt last August with a group of friends, which is when many first took note of their relationship.
There, they rode camels, saw the pyramids, and generally had a ball. Friends Simon Huck and Phil Riportella shared pictures of the couple together:
Excuse us while we book some flights.
Then, in October, Bendjima got involved with the Kardashian family’s always-extravagant Halloween celebrations.
Here he is with Kardashian, in costume as Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway in Bonnie & Clyde.
We have to say, they did a great job. Not quite as good as Kourtney and Kim as Michael Jackson and Madonna at the 1991 Oscars, but up there.
Since then, the pair have been photographed together in Mexico, Los Angeles, Paris, Cannes and New York.
While their relationship may have started under stressful circumstances, things seem to have been pretty dreamy since then.
Wishing Bendjima and Kardashian all the best.
