It Looks Like Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima Are Back Together
The Kardashian holiday extravaganza didn't just involve over-the-top gowns and cute kids (though there was plenty of that). A quick flip through Kourtney Kardashian's Instagram post commemorating the big night revealed one very special guest: Younes Bendjima. In one of the photos, the couple looks pretty cozy, confirming that things are very much still on and that the two are back together.
Bendjima has his arm around Kardashian's waist in the photo, which also shows off her long red gown and a pretty sedate-looking Christmas tree — at least compared to sister Kim Kardashian's all-white tree collection. In addition to the prom-ready couples shot, Kourtney's gallery included snaps of Kris Jenner with her grandkids, a full-on sister portrait with Khloé, Kendall, Kim, and Kylie, and a glimpse at the Hot Dog on a Stick catering.
The holiday reunion comes after the two were spotted together in Miami at the opening of Maggio Cipriani’s new club, Socialista, back in early December. Later, the two were seen at Art Basel and Disneyland together.
The two officially split in August, after dating for a year. Bendjima was the very first serious relationship that Kardashian had after nine years with ex Scott Disick, though she was briefly linked to model Luka Sabbat. Neither Kardashian, who has been extremely private about her situation with Bendjima, nor Bendjima himself has confirmed that the two are back on. Even after the breakup, they remained cordial, with Bendjima attending Kardashian's birthday festivities, so while the two could definitely be back on, their past canoodling could just be continuing on.
Kardashian's desire to keep her relationship under the radar may have been one reason that she decided to limit her time on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Her sisters Kim and Khloé accused her of being "too private" and not sharing enough of herself on TV, which led to them feeling as though they were taking on more responsibility to keep the show going. Kourtney told everyone that she was just shifting focus.
"I just decided to spend more time as a mom and put more of my energy there," she told Entertainment Tonight, adding, "But I'm not saying goodbye."
