By now, you’ve probably heard the news that it's reportedly a wrap for Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima. I know what you’re thinking: Weren’t they just soaking in the sun on a lavish vacation in Italy? Well, as it turns out, the signs that they were headed south were clearer than the Portofino sky, especially if you take a closer look at Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima's body language before their rumored split. The setting may have been uber-romantic, but the body language? Not so much.
In case you haven't been following along, Kardashian and Bendjima first met in Paris, back in October 2016 (the night before Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint, according to People). They dated casually throughout 2017, and were seen vacationing together in exotic locales like Cannes and the pyramids in Egypt. By the end of 2017, things seemed to be getting even more serious, as Kardashian had reportedly already introduced Bendjima to her kids and invited him to the annual Kardashian Christmas party.
The couple seemed to be going strong and steady, up until mid-July 2018. After their luxurious European vacation, Bendjima left a demeaning comment on one of Kardashian's Instagram photos. The photo featured Kardashian in a floral thong bikini, and Bendjima's (awful) comment read, "That's what you need to show to get likes?" That seemed to be what first set their breakup in motion.
On a trip with friends to Mexico in early August, Bendjima was photographed looking suspiciously affectionate with model Jordan Ozuna. He responded with an angry Insta story slideshow, where he calls out the media for really "wanting him to be the bad guy." It was weird. And Kardashian unfollowed him on Instagram. And Kim and Khloe Kardashian both left shady comments on The Shade Room's Instagram, very obviously directed at Bendjima. Again, weird, and seemingly very abrupt.
While both Bendjima and Ozuna have denied anything happened between them, it seems to have been enough for Kardashian to call it quits on the relationship. Elite Daily reached out to both Kardashian and Bendjima's teams for comment, but did not hear back by the time of publication.
Looking over their history, it may seem like the split really came out of the blue. However, according to body language experts Lisa Mitchell and Traci Brown, the signs that there was trouble in paradise were very clear in their body language. Mitchell and Brown took a look at some recent photos of the former couple, shortly before they called it quits. Here's what they see.
