"Scott's trying to stick it to Kourtney because of her liaison with Younes," an insider explained to PEOPLE. "It's him acting out. He's spinning out of control because of all the Kourtney s—. It just sets him off because she's rubbing her new relationship in his face and posting all those bikini photos."
Kardashian and Bendjima celebrated Halloween together in Los Angeles, hitting up a party dressed in coordinating costumes as Bonnie and Clyde.
Kardashian and Bendjima's relationship started heating up — and she introduced him to her kids.
"It's definitely serious," a source dished to PEOPLE. "No one thought their relationship would last this long, but Kourtney is very happy."
"Kourtney's family really likes him," the source continued. "He's the opposite of Scott. He doesn't party, isn't flashy, and really treats Kourtney with a lot of respect. It's obvious that he really cares about Kourtney."
"Kourtney seemed so happy that Younes joined her," a source told PEOPLE. "They are so cute together. He kept bringing her drinks and doting on her. Younes fits right into the family."
Disick was also in attendace. "Younes didn't seem uncomfortable that Scott was there," the source noted. "They said hello, but that was it. It was very civil."
The couple took off on a romantic trip to Mexico, where they indulged in a couple's massage.
"I was in the mood to get out town for a few days to feed my soul with some travel," Kardashian wrote on her app. "I love how close Mexico is but how far away I feel when I get there, so I figured that it was easy for a weekend getaway."

They decided to take a break, but were not officially over. Now with the pictures of Younes in Mexico, they are definitely not getting back together."
"Kourtney doesn't play games. She seems okay with [the breakup]," the source added. "Younes was always supposed to be a rebound."
