Being in a relationship with a famous star can leap your status to the spotlight. Such was the case for Younes Bendjima. Younes Bendjima was a boxer, who worked in his father’s restaurant before dating Kourtney Kardashian, a popular TV personality. How was Younes Bendjima able to win the heart of well-known Kourtney even with fourteen years of age-gap?
Younes Bendjima Bio, Nationality & Ethnicity
Younes Bendjima celebrates his birthday on 5 May according to his bio. Born in 1993, he is 25 years of age and stands at the height of 6 feet 2 inches (1.66 meters). As his bio reveals, he was born in Algeria.
His parents separated when he was very young, which caused his father to move to the US and his mom to France. He spent most of his childhood with his father in the US and worked in the Algerian restaurant that his father had in the US. Younes also shares a close bond with his mother. He visited his mother on every summer vacation, which improved his fluency in French-speaking. Now, in addition to French and English, Younes is also fluent in Arabic.

He embraces Algerian ethnicity and American nationality. Even though he likes to keep his private life low-key, it has been revealed that Younes is a Muslim.
Cheating on Kourtney Kardashian / New Girlfriend
Even before his modeling career flourished, Younes was already in the spotlight because of his romantic association with famous stars. At first, he was in a romantic relationship with Jourdan Dunn, a popular model. They dated for about a year from 2015 to 2016. The couple supposedly broke up in October of 2016.
Younes Bendjima was quick to move on; just after a week of the breakup, he started dating Kourtney Kardashian, an American TV personality, known worldwide for her appearance in the show, Keeping Up with The Kardashians.
To everyone’s surprise, Kourtney and Younes lasted longer than assumed. They celebrated vacations together and Kourtney often flaunted pictures with him. However, Younes did not like Kourtney posting revealing pictures on Instagram, even though she had to do it as part of her job. In July 2018, the couple was spending a holiday in Portofino, Italy. As a typical Kourtney behavior, she posted a lot of pictures on Instagram along with Younes. However, Younes did not approve of Kourtney’s revealing pictures. On one of the pictures where Kourtney was wearing a thong swimsuit, he reportedly commented, “That's what you need to show to get likes?” The comment gained a lot of media sensation, and as harsh as the comment seemed, Younes reported that he was only joking.

Even though Younes shared a good bond with all of Kourtney’s children from her ex-boyfriend, Kourtney’s family was not supportive of Younes and Kourtney’s relationship. Surprisingly, it was not the reason for the couple’s split in July 2018.
The couple parted ways after two years of togetherness when Kourtney reported Younes to be cheating on her. She said that he cheated on her shortly after their trip to Italy. To confirm the rumors of him cheating on Kourtney, Youngs himself posted a picture of him getting handsy with Jordan Ozuna, an Instagram model. The Kardashian family was reported to post harsh comments on his pictures, to which he replied that he was just having fun and their opinion did not matter to him.
It seems that Younes Bendjmi is not the guy to settle down with one girl for a lifetime. He was once again spotted with a mystery woman on 11 September 2018 during the New York Fashion Week, who could be his new girlfriend. The identity of the woman is not known, and neither is the current relationship status of Younes.
Younes Bendjima Net worth
Younes Bendjima dreamed of becoming a successful boxer ever since his childhood. In the USA when Younes was working in his dad’s Algerian restaurant and taking boxing courses simultaneously, he was approached by a scout member for a modeling contract. The scout was impressed by young Younes’s attractive body and sexy attire, but modeling was not something Younes wanted to pursue at that time. When Younes was not influenced by his boxing job, he decided to quit it and take a chance at modeling, which was almost like a boon to him.
After signing a modeling contract with Next Model Management, his career flourished in the media industry. He has worked with some of the most popular brands like Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein.
Moreover, he is friends with some of the most popular stars like Rita Ora and Justin Beiber, which has increased his fame. With his successful modeling career, it is expected that Younes Bendjima enjoys a hefty net worth of $500K. He is also planning to start up a business as an entrepreneur, and given his fame at just 25 years of age, it is no doubt that he will rock anything that he sets up his mind to.
