Featuring some very fancy Gucci teacups. 

US television personality Kourtney Kardashian has been dating French-Algerian model Younes Bendjima for the best part of two years, and from the looks of things, he’s introduced her to his Muslim faith.

Over the weekend, Kardashian posted a photo of a cup of tea on Snapchat, with the caption “Ramadan spirit.”

Of course, she didn’t choose a classic Ikea cup for her photo. Kardashian’s gold-leaf cup and saucer is by Gucci, and features that Italian fashion house’s signature green and red pattern.


That particular cup isn’t in stock on Gucci’s website now, but a different set will cost you Dhs1,200. Nothing but the best for this family.

We don’t think it’s too much of a reach to suggest that Bendjima would be behind this show of interest from Kardashian. He regularly posts to social media accounts about his faith — even leaving Kendall Jenner’s birthday party last year to head to the mosque for Friday prayers.

Screenshots from that story were favourited more than 26,000 times on Twitter.

So who is Younes Bendjima? We’re so glad you asked.

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.

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. 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.

Kardashian last shared a photo with Bendjima in April, when they went to Coachella together.

Doesn’t seem like a bad life to us.
