Kourtney Kardashian's Ex Younes Bendjima Leaves Flirty Comment on KUWTK Star's Instagram Photo
Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima split in August 2018 after first meeting in 2016
On Friday, Kardashian, 39, shared a photo slideshow of herself wearing a mini red leather dress paired with heeled sandals.
“Do you take Amex?” Kardashian captioned the post.
The sexy shot caught the eye of Bendjima, 25, who wrote, “Ya look good Minnie mouse.”
The surprising comment prompted fans to flood Kardashian’s comments section, questioning whether or not the former lovebirds are planning to rekindle their romance.
“OMG there’s hope, please you & Younes get back together,” one fan wrote.
“ARE YALL BACK TOGETHER?” another user commented.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Bendjima has praised the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star on social media.
Back in December, the model shared some of his standout moments of 2018 on his Instagram Story, one of which was time he spent with Kardashian.
Bendjima called Kardashian “an amazing woman and mum.”
Alongside a photo that showed Kardashian sitting on a mattress outside at sunset, Bendjima wrote, “Let’s not forget about this beautiful woman inside and out.”
“I’m not the type of man that forget[s] moments like that,” he added. “I hope you will find happiness for you and your childrens [sic].”
“It’s all love at the end of the day,” he continued. “We don’t know what can happen tmrw so there you go.”
A source told PEOPLE at the time that their breakup “didn’t end well.”
The news came after photos of Bendjima getting cozy with another woman in Mexico surfaced on TMZ. On his Instagram story, Bendjima denied the situation was romantic, writing: “They really want me to be the bad guy. F— your Hollywood bulls—, can’t have fun with your friends no more.”
The couple was going strong just one month before, when they took a romantic European vacation joined in part by the three children Kardashian shares with ex Scott Disick: Mason, 8, Reign, 3, and Penelope, 5.
But tensions had been lingering over Kardashian’s social media activity. During the three-week trip, she posted multiple photos on Instagram showing off her toned physique in bathing suits, including two photos of her eating bread in a bikini while lounging on a yacht.
In a since-deleted comment on a photo of Kardashian wearing a thong bikini, Bendjima shaded the post, writing: “That’s what you need to show to get likes?”
A source later told PEOPLE that Bendjima was never a fan of his ex-girlfriend’s revealing shots.
“He never liked that she posted sexy pictures of herself on social media,” said the source. “He doesn’t want his girlfriend to do that. He gets that it’s her job, but wants her to post more covered-up pictures. He has always had a problem with this. This is the stuff they argue about and what made them split in the past.”
