News’ report, a source close to the situation revealed that Kardashian and Bendjima had a pleasant time seeing each other, but there was nothing more to it than a mere coincidence.

The source also revealed to E! that Bendjima bought Kardashian a latte because he was ahead of her in line, which is really sweet.
“It was sweet and she appreciated it. She gave him a hug and went on her way," the source said. "He texts her from time to time but she has moved on. It was nice to see him and she was glad to see he's doing well."
So, it seems like there are no hard feelings between Bendjima and Kardashian, which is really nice to hear. The two dated from October 2016 until August 2018. In the last few months of their relationship, things became somewhat strained between them. In July 2016, Bendjima seemed to be upset about what photos Kardashian posted on social media, especially ones that revealed too much skin.
"That's what you need to show to get likes?" he commented on one of Kardashian’s Instagram photos.
Kardashian was reportedly frustrated by his behavior, which only added to the difficulty of the relationship. At the time, a source told E! News that Kardashian didn’t appreciate Bendjima’s impulsive nature:
Kourtney doesn't appreciate Younes posting his feelings in a public forum and being impulsive. She's frustrated that he continues to get upset about it. She isn't going to stop doing what she's doing and feels like he needs to understand and deal with it … Younes gets jealous and can be possessive of Kourtney. When she posts half naked pictures, he gets very upset. He wants her for himself and doesn't want to share her with the world.
So, there were definitely some problems in the relationship, but it’s nice to see that Bendjima and Kardashian have moved past them. As a matter of fact, Bendjima shared a very sweet message about Kardashian on Instagram while reflecting on 2018 back on Dec. 30.
"Let's not forget this beautiful woman inside and out," Bendjima wrote alongside photos of Kardashian. "I'm not the type of man that forgets moments like that. You [are] an amazing woman and mum and I hope you will find happiness for you and your childrens [sic]. It's all love at the end of the day...we don't know what can happen tmw so there you go."
Bendjima clearly has a lot of respect for Kardashian, and it seems like the feeling is mutual!
