Khloe Kardashian and French Montana
While Khloé’s relationship with the rapper didn’t work out in 2014, Montana maintained a close relationship with the entire family.
“Me and Khloé are always going to be friends, and the family still remains close,” the musician told
Haute Living in 2019. “I feel like we had a real dope relationship―there was no bad blood, nobody did something to somebody that we couldn’t come back from. The love was real. When the love was like that, it’s always going to be like that. Friendship after a relationship is something that’s real hard to do, and I’m glad we’ve been able to do it.”
Montana is often spotted at Kardashian family get-togethers, including Kourtney’s 40th birthday party in September 2019.
Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson
While things between Khloé and Thompson ended on a sour note after he cheated on her for the second time in February 2019, she made an effort to stay on good terms with him for the sake of their daughter, True. Kim also stepped up to befriend the NBA player after publicly slamming him for his infidelities.
“He’s like, honestly, so nice,” Kim said of Thompson in a deleted scene from season 18 of
KUWTK in 2020. “Like, he’s really nice. He’s really trying, really hard. And it’s been a full year of him as a different person.”
The Skims cofounder added in March 2020 via Twitter that she loves the athlete “like a brother.”
Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom
It’s no secret that Khloé dropped everything to help her ex-husband after his 2015 overdose. While they finalized their divorce the following year, the Good American designer publicly supported the basketball player after he released his memoir in 2019. Khloé also spoke about their relationship on
KUWTK at the time.
“I miss him all the time, but not in a place where I want to get back with him,” she said. “So, he called me and he was like, ‘I just knew we were all gonna talk again at some point. I’m just so happy.’ He was like, ‘I would love to see you. I’ve been dying to see you in person. I just feel like we have so much to talk about.’”
While Odom previously said that he wanted to reconnect with Khloé romantically, the
Dancing With the Stars alum concluded in 2019 that they are “meant” to be friends. He proposed to Sabrina Parr later that year.
Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick
After dating on and off for a decade, Kourtney and Disick called it quits in 2015. While a source told
Us in June 2020 that Disick is “always flirting” with Kourtney — especially after his split from — it’s not likely they will get back together. Sofia Richie
“Scott is so happy that he and Kourtney get along so well and how easy it is with her. It’s weird to everyone else, but not to them. They are really like best friends,” the insider said. “The family also loves him and he’s like another son to Kris.”
During an interview with
Us in 2019, Disick opened up about his relationship with Kourtney. “Just because their mother and I couldn’t make it as a perfect, romantic couple shouldn’t have anything to do with the kids,” he told Us. “They don’t deserve our mistakes, so we figured out a way.”

Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima
Kourtney and Bendjima split in 2018 after two years of dating, but that didn’t stop
them from spending time together.
“Kourtney likes having Younes around because they have great sexual chemistry and it’s fun for her,” a source told
Us in April 2019.“ She thinks he’s young and hot and has a great body and she’s in control of the situation. She has a much more refined approach to everything in her life, in terms of business and taking care of her kids and coparenting with Scott. [He] is aware that she doesn’t want to deal with any craziness.”
The Poosh founder and Bendjima have been spotted at Disneyland, out in Miami and even at the Kardashian family Christmas party after their breakup.
Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott
After the twosome split in October 2019, Kylie confirmed that there was no animosity between them. “Travis and I are on great terms and our main focus right now is Stormi,” she tweeted at the time. “Our friendship and our daughter is priority.”
A source previously told
Us that they’re “great partners” in life. “They love each other and they share a daughter that will bind them together for life,” the source said.
Kylie proved that the duo are on good terms by quarantining with Scott amid the coronavirus pandemic in 2020.
Kendall Jenner and Ben Simmons
The model’s on-again, off-again relationship with the NBA star started in 2018. Fast-forward two years and the twosome
continue to straddle the line between friends and dating.
“They both like having a no-strings-attached type of relationship with each other, for the most part,” a source told
Us in February 2020. “They both work and travel frequently and don’t find it very realistic to be in an exclusive relationship with one another. They do really like each other though and love spending time together.”
Luka Sabbat / Kourtney Kardashian / Kendall Jenner
Kourtney may have briefly dated the Instagram influencer in 2018, but that didn’t stop
Kendall from maintaining a friendship with Sabbat.
“Kendall and Luka are friends and have been forever,” a source told
Us in February 2020. “Luka is still so close with Kendall and her family, even after his fling with Kourtney, and it’s because he’s such a fun, down to earth, cool guy.”
Scott Disick / Sofia Richie / Kylie Jenner
When Disick started dating Richie, the model’s longtime friendship with Kylie was seemingly strained. After Disick got on better terms with Kourtney, however, Richie and
Kylie’s relationship picked up right where it left off.
“Kylie and Sofia have always run in the same circle and are very close in age, so they’ve bonded a lot through the years,” an insider told
Us in 2019. “They’ve always been in the limelight, lived very similar lifestyles and grown up around a lot of the same people. They’ve gotten a lot closer as of late now that the Kourtney, Scott and Sofia drama has died down. Once any drama between Kourtney and Sofia blew over, Kylie felt more comfortable spending girl time with Sofia again.”
And while Disick and Richie split in May 2020,
her friendship with the Kylie Cosmetics CEO didn’t suffer. “Sofia and Kylie are still friends and their friendship hasn’t been affected by her breakup with Scott,” a second source told Us at the time. “They have had a super close relationship for a while and Sofia hasn’t done anything wrong to make their friendship be jeopardized.”

Adrienne Balion / Rob Kardashian / Kourtney Kardashian
The former Disney star’s romance with Rob didn’t work out in 2010,
but she found a friend for life in Kourtney.
“When I broke up with Rob Kardashian, my breakup buddy was his sister Kourtney,” Balion said on
The Real in 2017. “I was definitely more the sad one crying at home and she was like, ‘No girl, we are going to go out. We’re going to hit the clubs in Hollywood. We’re going to have so much fun!’”
Two years later, Kourtney made a guest appearance on The Real.
While Kim’s friendship with Bailon was rocky after the actress said being “stuck with that Kardashian label” hurt her career during an interview with
Latina magazine, the drama proved to be water under the bridge by 2018.
“North’s obsession,” Kim captioned a video of her eldest daughter watching the Cheetah Girls in 2018. “Should I break the news that to North that this could have been her auntie?!?!?!”
Bailon replied at the time, “Just woke up to this! Lol. Hysterical! Cheetahlicious!”
