Well, according to Us Weekly, the former couple of nearly two years is back on again. A source told Us Weekly that “there was some miscommunication” but “they worked it out and are giving it another shot.” The source also added that Younes, 26, “is a really sweet guy.”

So who the heck is this guy anyway? Let’s take a look at the young man who keeps winning Kourtney's heart (for nearly two years now!), and the rise and fall (and rise, again) of their relationship.

First off: Who Is Younes Bendjima?

Younes seems to run in the same high-end social circles as the Kardashians. He’s also signed with Next Models. According to Seventeen, he was actually training as a boxer before getting scouted to model.

To top off his killer good looks, Younes speaks three languages (English, French, and Arabic) and splits his time between Paris and New York City.

Kourtney, 39, apparently met Younes in a bar in Paris during Fashion Week, in 2016. (This was right around the time Kim got robbed.) In a 2017 episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kourtney said he stuck around to help after the incident. (He speaks French, after all.)

2017: They traveled the world together.

These two have been spotted globe-trotting on multiple occasions over the last couple years. The hot couple met up in May 2017 for the Cannes Film Festival, reports E! News. Then in August of last year, they rode camels together in Egypt, around The Great Pyramids of Giza.

October 2017: They nailed a couples costume.

While most of the duo’s memories live on IG stories (a.k.a. they disappear in 24 hours), the couple does post the occasional Insta shot.

One sign their relationship was going strong late last year: They pulled off a stellar Halloween couples costume as Bonnie and Clyde-a step that takes some serious commitment.

Just a few weeks ago, Kourtney and Younes celebrated their birthdays-both in a big way.

For Kourtney’s in April, they escaped to the Malibu coast to stay in an Airstream trailer on top of a cliff, according to People.

And to honor Younes' mid-twenties in May, Kourtney whisked him away for a surprise getaway. They took a private plane and jetted somewhere near the Colorado River, according to her IG stories and Harper’s Bazaar.

June 2018: The couple took a romantic trip to Italy.

The couple spent weeks traversing Italy, visiting iconic cities like Rome and Capri, reports Us Weekly. And they shared plenty of Instagram photos of their fairytale vacation.

July 2018: Younes posted a nasty comment on Kourtney's Instagram...and the breakup rumors began.

After Kourtney shared a photo of herself wearing a floral thong bikini that showed off her bare booty, Younes commented: “Thats what you need to show to get likes?” It was later deleted, and a source told Us Weekly that he was kidding. Nevertheless, breakup rumors promptly swirled among fans.

According to E!, Kourtney was "frustrated" by Younes' comment (which, like, understandable). "She isn't going to stop doing what she's doing and feels like he needs to understand and deal with it," a source told the outlet.

August 2018: The couple reportedly broke up.

On August 7, news broke that Kourtney and Younes split up. A source told Peoplethat "it didn't end well."

The same day, photos surfaced on TMZ showing Younes on vacation, seemingly flirting with other women. Younes took to Instagram stories to slam the implication that he's already moved on. "They really want me to be the bad guy," he wrote across a photo of a Daily Mail story showing him in Mexico, arms wrapped around a woman in a bikini. "Can't have fun with your friends no more."

August 2018: Kim fired back.

Just hours after Younes was spotted with flirting, a photo of him in Mexico at a table with a group of men and women was shared by the Shade Room, per People. Kim wasn't having it. “Nice pics from your ‘boys trip,'” Kim wrote. She also added a Pinnochio emoji, implying that Younes was a liar. Younes fired back on Instagram, saying that "I know who I am, where I'm from, and where I'm going and that bothers you."

August 2018: Kourtney continued living her best life.

On Sept. 4, TMZ posted a photo of Kourtney and Younes sitting together in a car. According to TMZ, they were hanging out together outside a Malibu sushi restaurant, but it was "unclear" if they actually ate together or just met up after a meal. Still, they were talking together in her Range Rover, so that had to mean something.

Also worth pointing out: Younes was behind the wheel of her car and they drove off together. So...tbd?
