Fame — who needs it? Kourtney Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend Younes Bendjima recently reflected on how his life changed following the pair’s high-profile romance. I don’t call my face famous,” he told Life & Style exclusively at New York’s Hemp Garden for the launch of MASK, a CBD beauty mask.

“I wouldn’t say [that] and I will never say in my life [that] I’m famous,” the 25-year-old model continued. Younes went on to explain that while he doesn’t label himself with the conventional Hollywood term, he does sometimes get noticed in public. “To be honest, it really depends where and also, like, if you try to be recognized, you will be recognized,” he explained.

“Most of the time, when I’m alone, I have my headphones in and I just walk in and don’t really pay attention to people. So, they don’t really pay attention to me. But, if you walk with your chest out in the street, then people will obviously pay attention to you — and maybe recognize you,” Younes noted.

Despite having dated the 40-year-old KUWTK star for nearly two years, Younes insisted that he’s still “a low-key person” and will stay “a low-key person forever.” Considering the cheating allegations surrounding the pair’s breakup in August, it’s understandable that he would want to fly under the radar.

That said, Younes recently came back onto the Kar-Jenner scene after leaving a flirty comment on Kourtney’s Instagram, as well as attending her 40th birthday bash. Even so, no matter who he’s romantically linked to, Younes made it clear that he “didn’t really want” fame. “I think that’s why I am here now,” he concluded. 

Well, one thing’s for sure, we stan a humble king! Keep doing your thing, Younes.
