We love love—even better if we’re talking about the rich, famous people type of love. These new celeb couples have been some of the few bright spots in the tire fire that has been 2018 thus far. From Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson’s whirlwind engagement and (predictable) breakup to Timothée Chalamet and Lily-Rose Depp getting caught smooching, this year has basically been like a series of quirky rom-coms—and we have loved every minute. (Of course, like any rom-com, some of these couplings weren’t meant to last the year—or even the month—but we’ll #neverforget.)

Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima
Current Status: Splitsville
Our favourite jet-setting couple have called it quits after almost two years of dating. According to TMZ, the 39-year-old Kardashian broke up with her 25-year-old beau just weeks after returning from their month-long Italian vacay. The pair have been linked since October 2016 and Kim’s infamous robbery in Paris, where Bendjima apparently stayed by Kourtney’s side, helping to translate and speak to police.
Just before the news broke, Bendjima was spotted with friends in Mexico and was photographed getting up close and personal with a woman who was not Kourtney. Bendjima responded to a Daily Mail article calling him a ‘playboy,’ clapping back on his Instagram, screenshotting the article and writing: “They really want me to be the bad guy f-ck your Hollywood bullsh-t (can’t have fun with your friends anymore) Where are my 12 other friends? Nice catch though.” Bendjima followed up with another post to his Insta stories, writing: “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. The one of my Lord. Have a wonderful day.”
And then sh-t really hit the fan. Kourtney’s sisters came to her defence online, with Khloe commenting on a screenshot of the Daily Mail article, writing: “Alexa, play ‘Heard it all before’ by Sunshine Anderson’.” Not to be left out, Kim chimed in later, commenting on an Instagram photo by @theshaderoom, “Nice pics from your “boys trip,”” with a pinnochio nose emoji. *SCREAMING.* You guys, it’s on.
Kourtney has yet to comment on the drams herself, which goes to show that while she may be the least exciting, she’s arguably the most mature Kardashian.
