6 Younes and Kourtney Photos That’ll Make You Understand Why Their Relationship Is Over

10/08/2018

Body language can reveal many truths about relationships — but only if you know how to read it. In Celebrity Couples: Decoded, an expert interprets A-listers’ interactions to shed light on their IRL dynamic.

After a whirlwind summer of travel together, Kourtney Kardashian, 39, and her 25-year-old model boyfriend Younes Bendjima, allegedly ended their fling, which dates back to December 2016 when reports of their courtship first surfaced.

But Instagram shade wasn’t the only sign their relationship was on the fringe, or perhaps, just a fling: Kourtney and Younes’s public appearances held all the hints, according to body language expert Blanca Cobb. Just look:

“Not only are Younes’s eyes open, but he appears distracted,” Cobb says, wondering WTF he could be thinking about while locking lips with his partner. Although he does lean toward Kourtney—which typically is a sign someone is into a kiss—he doesn’t appear to be caught up in the throes of passion in this particular moment. Meanwhile, Kourtney shuts her eyes and, from the looks of her raised cheeks, appears to be smiling. It’s plain to see their expressions are mismatched.

THEIR HANDHOLDING WASN’T EXACTLY INTIMATE.

“That’s more of a release than a hold,” Cobb says of Younes’s hand positioning. After all, his fingers are flailing. Meanwhile, Kourtney clutches on, curling her fingers around the back of her partner’s hand. Had she made less effort, Cobb notes, there would be no physical contact between them, leaving no evidence of an emotional connection.

In the public appearance above, Younes and Kourtney cozy up—sort of. Sure, there’s no space between them, which gives the illusion of emotional closeness, Cobb agrees. But instead of making skin-to-skin contact by holding hands, or even turning to face one another, both partners have their hands in their own laps and gaze forward, which makes them look disinterested in one another. And although couples who are in love and in sync tend to mimic each other’s body language, that’s not happening here as far as limb positioning goes: “Younes is comfy and confident with his manspread,” Cobb says, noting the way Kourtney’s perch is more formal, with her legs closed.

Younes doesn’t just look bored in this photo, according to Cobb—he angles both feet away from his partner rather than toward her, a red flag, since people tend to point their toes in the direction they want to go. Although he holds Kourtney’s hand, “Younes doesn’t seem to be enjoying his lady,” Cobb says before noting Kourtney’s stance: Her crossed legs hint at instability, and two-hand hold on Younes suggest she’s a little unsure of herself, according to Cobb.

Here, Younes walks ahead of Kourtney, a move that says, “I’m the man in charge” but doesn’t always bode well for relationships, according to Cobb. “And look at their mismatched stride,” she says. “This is screaming that they’re emotionally out of touch.”

 

THE BOTTOM LINE:

Although it’s tough to tell what’s really going on behind a couple’s closed doors, the passion in this duo’s public interactions has long been lackluster compared to other lovebirds in the spotlight, according to Cobb. Throughout their relationship, Younes and Kourtney appear disjointed and apathetic, meaning their breakup should come as no surprise. The signs were all there!
