This romance is about to get a lot more delicious. Kourtney Kardashian is reportedly helping her much younger boyfriend, Younes Bendjima, open a new restaurant. According to Radar Online, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 38, made calls to realtors on Monday, Dec. 4, to check out several locations in LA that Younes, 24, could potentially lease.
“He was shown a possible location on Fairfax, mid-city, which he liked,” an insider told the website. “The place will serve Algerian food and she plans to trot all the Kardashian clan in there to make it the hot new thing when it opens.”
Radar Online reports that boxer-turned-model Younes, who is of Algerian descent, most likely wants to open an eatery since his father previously worked in the food business. “Kourtney wants this guy to have a real business going instead of relying on just modeling,” a source said of her decision to lend Younes a hand in his new endeavor.

It makes sense that Kourt wants to be more involved in Younes’ life. Back in August, a source told Us Weekly that the pair — who first started seeing each other in December 2016 — were no longer a casual fling, but something far more legit. “Younes and Kourtney are great,” the insider said. “The relationship is still developing, and it’s getting more serious.”
Prior to Younes, Kourtney dated Scott Disick — with whom she shares kids Mason, 7, Penelope, 5, and Reign, 2 — on and off for years, until 2015 when they split for good. Since then, Scott, 34, has moved on with Sofia Richie. However, according to The Sun, Kourtney is not happy about her ex’s romance with the 19-year-old socialite and has barred her from spending time with the former couple’s children.
“Kourtney is a fierce mom, and she’ll do whatever it takes to protect her kids,” an insider said. “She doesn’t want them getting confused by Scott’s new girlfriend — Mason is seven, old enough to understand a lot of things now, and Kourtney doesn’t want them meeting another one of Scott’s new girlfriends, only for her to disappear from their lives in a month.”
