It’s over for Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima. The 39-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and 25-year-old model and boxer have broken up after nearly two years of dating, a source confirms to Yahoo Entertainment.

“Things have been tense recently,” the insider says. “It’s not a huge surprise.” We’re told it was Kardashian’s decision to end the relationship — and Bendjima doesn’t exactly look too broken up about it.

Kardashian’s former boytoy was photographed in Mexico on Monday getting handsy with another woman. The Daily Mail identified her as Jordan Ozuna, an Instagram model previously linked to Kylie Jenner’s ex-boyfriend Tyga and Justin Bieber. (You’ll recall, Bieber briefly romanced Kourtney as well … what a not-so-small world.) Bendjima posted a screenshot of one of the cuddly pics on his Instagram Story denying a rebound romance, “They really want me to be the bad guy … cant have fun with your friends no more.”

Khloé Kardashian isn’t buying his explanation.

Kim Kardashian shaded him as well.

Ozuna told E! News she’s not to blame for the breakup, saying they are on a birthday trip for a mutual friend. “It was nothing more than friends having fun at the beach. No, we aren’t romantically involved in any way, shape or form,” she explained. However, E! cites a source who claims Ozuna and Bendjima were “together alone” and “kissing all night” while out at a club in Cancun, Mexico. 

Kardashian and Bendjima met in October 2016 at Paris Fashion Week and quickly became serious, frequently taking trips together to Europe.

Don’t hold your breath that these two are already friendly exes — People reports things “didn’t end well.” They have both unfollowed each other on Instagram, and the social media platform had become an issue in their relationship.

Just last month, Bendjima shamed his girlfriend on social media for the below booty pic. “That’s what you need to show to get likes?” he wrote, before deleting his comment.

“He never liked that she posted sexy photos,” our source explains. “It always caused a lot of tension. He didn’t like his girlfriend showing off her body to the whole world. He never understood it’s part of her job.”

This romance may be kaput, but Kourtney’s ex and the father of her three kids, Scott Disick, 35, is (surprisingly) still going strong with Sofia Richie, 19. Love isn’t dead!
