Kourtney Kardashian & Justin Bieber Rekindle Romance? ‘They Get Each Other,’ A Source Reveals
Kourtney Kardashian and Justin Bieber are reportedly back in touch with one another following his alleged split from Hailey Baldwin. Although the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, 36, and the much-younger Bieber, 21, aren’t yet romantically involved, a source claims they have a friendly relationship and talk regularly.
“They haven’t been hooking up, but they have been speaking and texting,” an insider told Hollywood Life, adding that the rumored former couple is “back on good terms” after Bieber’s romantic getaway with Baldwin weeks ago.

“They get each other and they have a similar sense of humor, which is what really brought them together in the first place,” the source said of Kourtney Kardashian and Bieber.
Kourtney Kardashian and Bieber first sparked rumors of a relationship in October of last year when they were spotted at a Los Angeles nightclub together. Then, in December, Kourtney Kardashian was photographed making her way out of Bieber’s hotel room, which seemed to confirm the two were an item. However, weeks later, Bieber appeared to go public with his relationship with Hailey Baldwin, whom he took to Anguilla for the holidays.
Although Bieber and Baldwin appeared to be in a full-blown relationship just weeks ago, especially considering their steamy New Year’s Eve kiss, they haven’t been spotted together for over a week, leading many to believe they have parted ways.
According to the source, Kourtney Kardashian previously felt “stabbed in the back” by Bieber, but now, it seems she’s gotten over her ill emotions.
Following his trip abroad, Bieber, who had said during an appearance on The Bert Show, that Kourtney Kardashian had “used” him to get back at Scott Disick, who was caught with an ex-girlfriend last summer, Bieber reportedly reached out to Kourtney Kardashian and assured her that Baldwin was nothing more than a “really good friend” — and that Kourtney Kardashian shouldn’t feel threatened by their time together. That said, fans shouldn’t expect to see Kourtney Kardashian hanging out with Bieber publicly, or further hinting at a possible romance. Instead, claimed the source, the pair is planning to enjoy their friendship.
“As far as hooking up is concerned, they are both going to just concentrate on bring good friends,” the source revealed. “Don’t rule the hooking up out completely, but for now they are just friends.”

Kourtney Kardashian split from Disick, the father of her three children, Mason, 6, Penelope, 3, and Reign, 1, in mid-2015, following the publication of several shocking photos of him with Chloe Bartoli, whom he dated prior to Kourtney Kardashian. And since then, Kourtney Kardashian has kept a low profile when it comes to her dating life.
On Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the idea of dating after Disick has been brought up, but judging by what fans have seen thus far, Kourtney Kardashian hasn’t been ready — at least at the time the show was shot last year. Meanwhile, her sister Kylie’s relationship with Tyga has been a hot topic on the show, as have the relationships between Kris Jenner and Corey Gamble, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom, and Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, who were expecting their second child, son Saint West, when the show was filmed (Saint West was born in early December).
