It seems like the 38-year-old socialite and businesswoman Kourtney Kardashian is finally moving on after her on-and-off relationship of nine years with Scott Disick. The mother-of-three is dating 24-year-old Younes Bendjima, born in Algeria, who also speaks fluent Arabic, English, and French, and the story of how the two met was shared in a recent Keeping Up With the Kardashians episode.
The 38-year-old reality star initially thought the 24-year-old former boxer ‘hated’ her and her younger sister when they met in a club in Paris in October 2016. However, just when she confronted him about being rude, they started falling for each other. In a Keeping Up With the Kardashians episode, he sister Khloe asked her:
“You met him in Paris when you were with Kim for fashion week?”
Kourtney replied: “Yeah, we like walked into a bar and Stephanie Sheppard was across from me and she kept going, ‘This guy’s cute over here’. He was friends with our friends. He would walk in, say hi, shake hands with like our security or whatever, but like not say hi to us. And then I was like, ‘Why do you hate us?’ I was just drunk. Once I said that he literally like grabbed my hand and was like, ‘It’s five in the morning. We’re leaving’. And then next night Younes was like, ‘Bring your ass here’.”
When Kourtney was asked if she likes him to be ‘aggressive’, she said: “Yeah”.
That’s when the pair somehow ended up at a nightclub in Paris but their party was ruined after Kim called them. It was the night an infamous robbery took place in her apartment. The 37-year-old was left tied up while armed thieves made off with millions of dollars worth of jewelry. Younes, as a true gentleman, offered to do whatever he could to help Kourtney and the rest of the family.
Kourtney added: “And then when we walked into that club was when we went to the bathroom and got the phone call about Kim. So then the party was over.”
“And then he was like, ‘I’m not leaving you guys,’ and he like had to translate everything.”
Khloe replied: “I heard Kim say he was the translator.”
The chat came after Kourtney revealed she needed to stop worrying about Scott Disick’s partying life and focus her energy on her kids. Scott is the father of their three children: Mason, seven, Penelope, five, and two-year-old Reign.
Kourtney explained: “The energy I put into him, I need to put into my kids and I need to distance myself. And just say, you know what, you as a 34-year-old father of three, you’ve got to know what to do at this point.”
