Kourtney Kardashian is not too pleased with boyfriend Younes Bendjima lately. The 39-year-old spoke to E! News and said she is ‘frustrated’ with Younes’ recent behavior.
She referred to his recent (now-deleted) comment on her newest Instagram photo, where she has her back to the camera and is wearing a stringy bikini.
Younes commented on the picture, writing, “that’s what you need to show to get likes?” Kourtney did not appreciate this condescending comment. Her 25 year old beau quickly deleted it and it appeared as if he had written and posted it on an impulse he wasn’t too proud of. Kourtney also thinks his impulsive actions need to be curbed.
A source close to her revealed that the KUWTK star ‘doesn’t appreciate Younes posting his feelings in a public forum’. Apparently, the male model is still upset about the picture and continues to bring it up in conversation, something Kourtney has started to resent now. However, she made it clear that she will not change her actions because of his feelings.
“She isn’t going to stop doing what she’s doing and feels like he needs to understand and deal with it,” the source reported. They continued on to reveal that Younes frequently gets jealous when Kourtney flaunts her full figure or posts ‘half naked pictures.’ He is also known to become ‘possessive’ although this is the first time he has shown it publicly. “He wants her for himself and doesn’t want to share her with the world,” the source said.
Younes apparently got ‘emotional’ and ‘was just not thinking in the moment’ when he made that comment. Later on, he realized that it was not a good reaction and it sparked an argument with Kourtney. However, Kourtney explained to him that she will always flaunt herself because ‘it’s part of her job and it’s not going to change’. Her explanation didn’t stop him from feeling upset though.
The trouble here is that Younes seems to be an old fashioned kind of guy. PEOPLE reported that it’s not just about Kourtney; the amateur boxer would not be comfortable with anyone he dated to be on display like that. “He doesn’t want his girlfriend to do that. He gets that it’s her job, but he has always had a problem with this. This is the stuff that made them split in the past,” a source told PEOPLE.
Fans are wondering whether a separation might be on the cards for the couple since this is an issue that Younes is very emotional about and Kourtney will not compromise on.
Kourtney and Younes just came back from a long trip in Europe. They enjoyed their time together but Younes has said he is ‘missing her [Kourtney] like crazy’. Kourtney on the other hand wants him to ‘get over it’ as traveling and working are part of her busy lifestyle. With all this fuss over her photo, fans are wondering why Younes doesn’t apply the same standards to himself. After all, he is a male model and most, if not all, of his photos show him standing half naked in exotic locations. He has not commented on this situation so far.
Despite Younes’ knee-jerk reaction, Kourtney’s photo got a lot of love from other people. Sister Kendall Jenner commented, “Yes tooshie,” while model Bella Hadid wrote, “Wow. Yup.”
Kourtney loves the positive attention so far and Younes seems to be regretting his impulsive move. There might just be trouble in paradise!
