Vanderpump Rules star Jax Taylor went to an L.A. gym earlier this week to get a workout in, and while he was there, he saw Kourtney Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend Younes Bendjima on a machine nearby. Taylor couldn’t help but notice Bendjima’s recent lifestyle change and shared the moment with his fans on Instagram.
According to TMZ, it looks like Taylor enjoyed watching Bendjima live life like the rest of us normal people. But after the pic went viral, Taylor made it clear that he wasn’t trying to be mean, and the post was all in good fun.
“When Kourtney Kardashian dumps you, and you have to slum it like the rest of us at a normal gym. No more Fiji diamond water either. Got to drink that smart water now,” Taylor wrote on a mirror selfie with Bendjima sitting next to him.

“Come on it’s kind of funny, wasn’t trying to be a d**k. It happens to the best of us. Drake should make a song though ‘started at the top now we here.’ Maybe next album?” Taylor said.
He also tweeted that he could put in a good word for Bendjima at TomTom — Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz’s new bar — if he wanted a job. After someone pointed out that people could take offense to his playful posts about Bendjima, Taylor responded that he would try not to lose sleep over it.
Considering that Bendjima was on a lavish European vacation with Kardashian just last month, it’s hard not to notice how quickly things have changed for the 25-year-old model.
Meanwhile, Kardashian is sharing with her fans on social media that she is literally and figuratively getting rid of all the toxins in her life. She posted a pic on Instagram of herself floating in a saltwater pool, wearing a blue bikini while looking extremely relaxed and showing off her six-pack abs. She captioned the pic, “Detox.”
Kourtney Kardashian looks unfazed by her breakup drama, but her sisters have taken the opportunity to publicly shame Bendjima after photos surfaced of him getting cozy with model Jordan Ozuna in Mexico just days after the split. Kim commented about the nice pictures from his “boys trip” and added a lying-face emoji. And, Khloe wrote, “Alexa, play Heard It All Before by Sunshine Anderson.”
New episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians air Sunday nights on E!, and new episodes of Vanderpump Rules will return to Bravo later this year.
