Friendly exes! Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima split in August, but their relationship still is one of the highlights of 2018 for Kourt’s ex-boyfriend. The model took to his Instagram story on Sunday, Dec. 30, to share a handful of photos highlighting his favorite memories of the past year and he included a few snaps of his former girlfriend — and he shared a touching message for her four months after their breakup.
“Let’s not forget about this beautiful woman inside and out, I am not the type of man that forgets moments like that,” Younes, 25, wrote in the caption of a throwback photo of Kourtney. “You’re an amazing woman and mum and I hope you will find happiness for you and your children. It’s all love at the end of the day. We don’t know what can happen [tomorrow] so there you go.”
Kourtney, 39, and Younes started dating in May 2017 when they were first spotted together partying in Cannes. The couple had met in October 2016 during Paris Fashion Week — and Kourtney previously revealed that she was out with Younes during her sister Kim Kardashian’s traumatic robbery.
Things heated up quickly between Kourtney and Younes after their Cannes vacation and they seemed to be constantly together, going on tons of romantic couples vacations to exotic places like St. Tropez, Egypt, Mexico, and the Bahamas. It seemed like the couple was in it for the long-haul — Younes even joined Kourtney at the annual Kardashian Christmas party last December, which was also attended by Kourtney’s ex and baby daddy Scott Disick.
But by July, rumors of a split started swirling. Sources revealed to E! News that Kourt and Younes had originally decided to take a break from their relationship with the hopes of reconciling, but instead, it ended in a split. It also didn’t help that during their break, Younes was spotting getting flirty with other women.
