The two started seeing each other in 2016 and often went on fun trips together to New York City, San Francisco, Paris and Rome. 

In August 2018 TMZ claimed that Kourtney broke up with Younes in July after he cheated on her - though a second source maintains the problem was distance.

The first source claimed that after Younes and Kourtney came back from a trip to Italy, he went on a trip with another woman.

'Once again you guys failed. I’m not attached to this "life" so you can’t touch me,' he ranted in the summer of 2018.

'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.'

Kim then chimed in, slamming Younes by commenting, 'Nice pics from your "boys trip."'

It has not been an easy year for Kourtney as she admitted on her show KUWTK that she had a hard time turning 40.

'I do think that turning 40, like it almost makes you analyze like where you’re at in your life,' Kourtney explains to her younger sister. 'It’s just giving me anxiety.'

Khloe asks what is so wrong in her life. 

'Now that I’m doing Poosh, I just always wish I had more time,' Kourtney says as tears fill her eyes. 'I feel like I want to cry.'

Her ex files: Before Younes, she was with Scott Disick. They had started dating in 2006. Seen here with Mason and Rob filming KUWTK in 2012 in NYC

When Khloe inquires if she’s happy, Kourtney is conflicted.

'I mean, I am,' Kourtney replies tearfully. 'But then sometimes I’m just like it makes you really like analyze just like where you’re at and then I’m like sometimes, "What am I doing?"'

She goes on: 'But then sometimes I’m like I’ll just do stupid s*** to like distract from really thinking about stuff that is maybe more important. I don’t know. But then half of me is like, "Live your life, have fun."'

Khloe says she’s doing everything as best she can.

'When she talked about turning 40 a while back, she didn’t seem too excited,' a source close to the star told People. 'Turning 40 is a big deal. But instead of seeing it as something negative, Kourtney turned it around and she seems very excited about her life just in general.'

This year she has also been taking vacations with ex Scott Disick and their three children - Mason, Penelope and Reign - even though his new girl Sofia Richie, 21, was there.
