Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are not a "new couple" after a supposed "breakup" with Younes Bendjima. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this untrue story. Kardashian is just friends with Barker and has not split from Bendjima.
But RadarOnline exclaims in a headline, "New Couple Alert? Travis Barker Crushing On Kourtney After Breakup With Boytoy Younes." According to the website, Kardashian and Bendjima are "on the outs," and "no one is happier about the news" than Barker. Noting that the rocker lives near the reality star and their kids play together, so-called "source" alleges to the blog, "He's always had a bit of a thing for her."
The site's supposed snitch goes on to contend that Barker worries he "missed his chance" to pursue Kardashian after her split from longtime boyfriend Scott Disick, but still "would love to ask her out." Contends the purported tipster, "He wants to take her for dinner at his Crossroads restaurant and wow her with all his favorite vegan dishes."
To further this narrative, the outlet mentions "rumors of a rift" between Kardashian and Bendjima, along with "fans speculating" there may be "trouble in paradise for the pair." But while Kardashian and Bendjima appeared to have to some Instagram drama earlier this month, the couple is still together. In fact, Kardashian and Bendjima were sighted just days ago bowling with her kids. She is not single, and Barker is not contemplating interfering in her relationship.
Actually, he has no intentions of trying to spark a romance with Kardashian regardless of her relationship status. The neighbors have a strictly platonic dynamic and always have, with a rep for the Blink-182 drummer exclusively telling Gossip Cop that RadarOnline's "new couple alert" is "100 percent not true." As is widely known, Barker and the Kardashians are neighbors, allowing his kids to become close with the famous family. But he and the "KUWTK" star have had no interest in dating one another, the spokesperson assures us.
It seems the online publication concocted this false narrative simply because the duo live near one another and Barker happens to be an investor in Crossroads Kitchen. But that doesn't mean he's looking to take Kardashian on a date there. And on top of the online publication being wrong about the two potentially hooking up, this is now at least the second time the site has wrongly claimed Kardashian and Bendjima have split (as seen in our archives). The blog just keeps breaking up with the facts.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
