Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima never lived together, despite a report from exactly a year ago that claimed he was on the verge of moving in with the reality star. In the 12 months that have passed, their relationship never progressed to the point of cohabitation. In fact, the couple recently broke up.
But on August 26, 2017, Gossip Cop busted OK! for peddling a story contending Kardashian and Bendjima were “ready to take it to the next level” with their romance. “Younes has told Kourtney that he’s ready to move in with her, and she’s considering it,” alleged the tabloid. A so-called “source” was also quoted as saying, “Younes is more than willing to drop his life in New York for her.”
The magazine’s untraceable tipster went on to acknowledge that Bendjima is “young,” but insisted, “He’s smart enough to know that he and Kourt have something very special.” As for Kardashian’s perspective, it was claimed she had “reservations” due to her history with Scott Disick, but Bendjima had “passed all her tests.” The model was even called a “hero” to her kids. “Kourtney says Younes is a more stable influence on their kids than Scott ever was… She’s ready to give Younes her heart,” maintained the questionable insider.
At the time, Gossip Cop pointed out that Bendjima hadn’t been seen with Kardashian’s three children even once. That was intentional on her part, as she was keeping what was then a fairly casual relationship separate from her family life. They weren’t even “Instagram official” when this tale was published. We told readers the narrative wasn’t accurate, and we were later proven correct.
It wasn’t until October that Bendjima appeared on Kardashian’s Instagram, and it wasn’t until December that Kardashian and Bendjima’s relationship really started to grow more serious, with People offering the first confirmation that he had finally met her children. And by June, Kardashian’s kids joined her and Bendjima on vacation in Italy.
Still, he never moved into the “KUWTK” star’s home, and they actually broke up shortly after that trip concluded. What’s more, while the OK! article last year tried to downplay the significance of the model’s younger age, Us Weekly recently reported in a story about whether Bendjima and Kardashian would get back together, “He’d have to grow up. There were a number of reasons it didn’t work, but at the end of the day the main reason was a maturity issue.” Regardless of whether they end up rekindling a romance or not, this much is clear: Bendjima did not move in with Kardashian, and, for the record, Kardashian and Bendjima never had a baby either, despite OK! also claiming last year that a pregnancy was also in the works.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
