Younes Bendjima was born on May 5, 1993, in Algeria. The model began dating Kourtney Kardashian, 14 years his senior, in 2016 after meeting in a Paris club in October the night before her sister Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint.
The couple traveled the world together, vacationing in Italy, Turks & Caicos and other exotic locations. However, trouble hit in July 2018 when Bendjima left a harsh comment on a photo of Kourtney wearing a thong bikini. A source insisted to Us Weekly at the time that the former boxer was joking, but less than a month later, the pair had split.
Although Bendjima denied quickly rebounding from Kourtney, her siblings, Kim and Khloé Kardashian, threw shade at the model, implying that he cheated on and lied to their eldest sister.
Bendjima made headlines again in August 2018 when a video resurfaced of him getting into a physical altercation with a restaurant employee months before his breakup from Kourtney.
