With the 2017 Cannes film festival well under way, celebrities have been out in force, sharing images on fabulous yachts in stunning outfits from the water straight to incredible evening events. Never wanting to miss out on the spotlight, sisters Kendall and Kourtney Kardashian have been sharing a series of stunning snaps from their trip. Aside from their fabulous outfits, Kourtney has also been causing a stir by being seen in public for the first time with her new boyfriend – Younes Bendjima.
The sisters have been hitting the famous party circuit the region hosts each year during the festival with brands including Chopard, Belvedere and Magnum putting on fabulous events. But all eyes have been on Kourtney, who’s been seen with her new beau in her first public acknowledgement that she and on/off partner of nine years, Scott Disick, are finally over. So who is Younes Bendjima?
Kourtney’s new boyfriend is 14 years her junior at 23 years old and is a former boxer and model. Born in Algeria, Younes speaks three languages and splits his time between New York and his mother’s house in Paris. The couple have been linked since being introduced during Paris fashion week last October and have been spotted out on a number of occasions, looking relaxed and happy including earlier in May in Hollywood.
Kourtney is not the first beautiful woman Younes has been linked to after having dated model Jourdan Dunn who he met in New York in 2015 at the Met Gala. Younes, like his famous ex, has modelled for global luxury brands including Givency, Hermes, Calvin Klein, Burberry and Ralph Lauren. He was first spotted by a modelling scout while he was living in New York aged 15.
While Kourtney’s ex Scott Disick was also in Cannes, seen cosying up to 19-year-old Bella Thorne, his trip was said to have been spontaneous after reacting with jealousy to seeing Kourtney so happy with Younes. After learning recently Scott had invited another girl on a family trip to Dubai, Kourtney seems to finally have found the strength to move on and looks relaxed and happy in the arms of her new beau.
