It looks like Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Kourtney Kardashian is on the outs with her boy toy, Younes Bendjima, and no one is happier about it than her neighbor, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. After missing his chance to ask her out when she split from Scott Disick, will Barker now take the opportunity to get close to the reality star?
A friend says that Barker has been crushing on Kardashian for years and he is not going to miss his chance this time.
“Travis lives a couple of blocks from Kourt in the same gated community in Calabasas, and their kids play together. He’s always had a bit of a thing for her,” reveals the source. “He wants to take her for dinner at his Crossroads restaurant and wow her with all his favorite vegan dishes.”
According to Radar Online, rumors of a rift between Kardashian and Bendjima started after the mom-of-three recently unfollowed him on Instagram and then shut down her account. Bendjima also unfollowed Kardashian and set his account to private, but not before posting a cryptic quote about disconnecting from social media.
Bendjima wrote that it feels good to stop looking at your phone and start looking at the world. He then encouraged his followers to try it, even for a day.
However, just a day later, both accounts were public and active again, and the two are following each other again. But, their strange social media activity left fans speculating that there is trouble in paradise.
Kardashian met the 24-year-old Bendjima back in October of 2016 and then took their relationship public last year in Cannes. Since then, the couple has traveled a lot together – from St. Tropez to Egypt – and the recent season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians has documented their blossoming romance.
Bendjima has spent time with Kardashian’s family, and he has met her three kids. And, even though no one thought the relationship would last, things were seemingly getting serious. But, after their recent Instagram episode, their status isn’t clear.
Kardashian’s relationship with the much younger Bendjima appears to be a hypocritical move to many fans since she apparently has a problem with Disick – her baby daddy – dating 19-year-old Sofia Richie.
A new report even claims that Kardashian has contacted Richie to tell her to back off and stay away from her kids. Apparently, the 38-year-old believes that Richie is not a good role model, plus she doesn’t want her children to get attached to someone that she doesn’t think will be in Disick’s life long-term.
Kardashian also has a problem with Richie’s age and immaturity and doesn’t want a teenager acting as stepmom to her kids. She has always made it clear that her children come first, and she isn’t shy about setting boundaries.
