Kourtney Kardashian has taken back her now-26-year-old model boyfriend Younes Bendjima, Us Weekly is reporting, after spending a month broken up from him. “There was some miscommunication, [but] they worked it out and are giving it another shot,” a source told the outlet. While neither Bendjima nor Kardashian have commented on their relationship yet, the two were seen out together last night. They were photographed in a car together after getting takeout in Malibu.

Back when he was 25 in July, Bendjima made headlines for publicly shaming Kardashian for posting revealing Instagrams of herself (despite him doing the same thing with his own gratuitous shirtless shots). A source told People then that “he never liked that she posted sexy pictures of herself on social media. He doesn’t want his girlfriend to do that. He gets that it’s her job but wants her to post more covered up picture[s]. He has always had a problem with this. This is the stuff they argue about and what made them split in the past.”
When news of their split broke and Bendjima was reported to be allegedly rebounding with a model, Bendjima personally took to his Instagram Story to call BS on it. “They really want me to be the bad guy,” Benjima wrote over a screenshot of Daily Mail’s coverage of him. “Fuck your Hollywood bullshit.”
Later, he wrote to critics, “Once again you guys failed. I’m not attached to this ‘life’ so you can’t touch me. I know who I am, where I’m from, and where I’m going and that bothers you. Only one opinion matter [sic]: The one of my Lord. Have a wonderful day.” Kardashian, meanwhile, said nothing.
Sources made it clear in August though that Kardashian wasn’t that bothered by the split. “She’s in a good place right now and ready to move on,” E! said, on Kardashian’s reaction prior to seeing the photos of Bendjima in Mexico. “She was upset for a moment and then got over it.”
The two had been together for about two years before first splitting up.
