NOW HE IS A MODEL BUT HE WAS A BOXER
Bendjima is known for being one of the recurring faces on fashion magazines and catwalks. He is a renowned and sought-after model who has worked with the most exclusive brands in the world of fashion.
But before being discovered in New York, he wanted to be a professional boxer. From the age of 11, Bendjima tried his hand at boxing to fulfill his dream, and although he does not box professionally, he always practices to be in shape.
HE HAS TWO HOMES ON TWO CONTINENTS
The model was born in Algeria in 1993 but has lived between New York, where his professional career takes place, and Paris, France, where his mother lives.
Having grown up between two homes, not only in two different countries but on two different continents, Bendjima is a young man who has experienced interesting things and who does very well in both countries.
SPEAKS THREE LANGUAGES
Residing in two countries, Bendjima had no choice but to learn to speak English and French. At this moment, it is known that he speaks English, French, and his mother language, Arabic.
He is fluent in all three languages, and especially when he has to work in France, being fluent in speaking French comes in handy.
HE DATED A VICTORIA'S SECRET ANGEL
Before becoming world-famous for being the man in a Kardashian's life, Bendjima was the boyfriend of the British supermodel and former Victoria's Secret Angel, Jourdan Dunn.
Although being Kardashian's boyfriend has given him notoriety, the young model is a serious guy who treats women sweetly and doesn't like to party all the time.
IN AND OUT WITH KOURTNEY
After splitting, Kardashian and Bendjima remained friends. This was her first relationship after her separation from the father of her three children, Scott Disick, with whom she had been since 2006.
The couple broke off their romantic relationship after 18 months, without any explanations to their followers, and there was no confirmation from them that they reunited, but several sources have confirmed that at one point in the past, this was true.
GETTING GOOD WITH HER CHILDREN
People know that for Kardashian, her children are very important. So it's vital for her that her partner gets along with her three children: Mason Dash Disick, 11, Penelope Scotland Disick, 8, and Reign Aston Disick, 6.
From what was learned about Bendjima while he was dating her, Kardashian's three children got along well with him. They were seen together on various occasions, such as at Disneyland, California in December 2019.
BELONGING TO THE SAME CIRCLE
One of the peculiarities of being a Kardashian is the immense publicity they receive, given their popularity, media items, and the reality show they have starred in for the last twenty years.
So usually, people who approach a member of the famous family belong to the same circle of friends. Kardashian's ex-boyfriend is no exception as he counts Jaden Smith and Justin Bieber as his friends, among other celebrities.
