Kourtney Kardashian and her ex-boyfriend Younes Bendjima were spotted having a heart-to-heart in a Malibu parking lot earlier this week. 

And sources close to the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star believe Younes deliberately called the paparazzi on them in a bid to make the most of his '15 minutes of fame'.

Despite sparking speculation they were back together, TMZ claims the chat was just about getting 'closure' for the 39-year-old reality star.

Kourtney was reportedly suspicious when Younes decided to drive to that particular sushi restaurant since the pair had never been there before - only for the paps to turn up soon afterwards.

The insider told TMZ the Kardashians have long held suspicions that Younes, 25, used to call up the paparazzi when they were dating.

MailOnline has contacted both Kourtney and Younes' representatives for comment.  

The two were spotted side by side in her black Range Rover SUV on Monday evening as they headed to Bui sushi restaurant in Malibu.

The former couple - who had a romantic vacation in  Italy earlier this summer - shocked fans when they reportedly split in early August. 

This marked the first time they have been seen together since they parted ways.

A source later told TMZ that they were not dating again; he simply wanted to talk out the split.

The pair did not dine inside Bui restaurant but rather only picked up take out food, further confirming that they did not want to be noticed.

Younes was in the driver's seat while she rode in the passenger's seat. Both appeared to be in somber moods.

After he picked up their Japanese food, they drove along the Pacific Coast Highway where they found a parking spot.

They stayed in the car for several hours as they watched the sun set over the ocean.

Later they were seen in Calabasas getting In N Out Burger at the Drive-Thru.

After that they headed to the gated community in Calabasas where Kourtney owns a mega mansion. 

The two have not been pictured together in over six weeks. 

Their split was initiated by Kourtney, TMZ claimed. 

Trouble seemed to brew after their trip to Italy when she posted a photo of her bottom. He posted a comment which read: 'Is that what you need to show to get likes?' 

He later deleted the comments. 

The racy picture was taken while they were travelling around Europe together with Kourtney's children Mason, eight, Penelope, six, and Reign, three.

He was said to be fuming with her for flashing the flesh and parading her body around in front of the world as he believes her saucy pictures should be for his eyes only.

The pair started dating in October 2016 but they didn't make their relationship public until the following May out of respect for Kourtney's ex-boyfriend Scott Disick. (Disick had a history of cheating on Kourtney and was pictured with other women on numerous occasions during their long on-again off-again relationship.)

But in early August it seemed clear Kourt and Younes were over.

Younes was seen in Mexico with another woman on August 7. He was seen getting handsy with social media 'influencer' Jordan Ozuna.

Jordan has a history with the family - she was linked to Tyga following his split from Kylie Jenner last year.

With 200,000 Instagram followers, Jordan, or according to her handle jiordyn, is what is termed a micro-influencer.

And she first found herself on the radar of plenty of those followers after being linked to Justin Bieber following his split from Selena Gomez in 2014.

Then an unknown Las Vegas cocktail waitress, she was spotted indulging in PDAs with the then 19-year-old around the city.

And the exposure drummed up a large number of Instagram followers for Jordan - the dream scenario for a social media obsessed Millennial.

When not waitressing - her last gig was at Vegas' Wet Republic - the brunette spends her time posting pictures of herself in various stages of undress, receiving hundreds of 'likes' and admiring comments. 

Later in the day, Younes took to Instagram to deny he and Jordan were more than just friends, commenting: 'They really want me to be the bad guy... can't have fun with your friends no more' [SIC].

However Kourtney's sister Khloe couldn't resist chiming in on his post, quipping 'Alexa play "heard it all before" by Sunshine Anderson'. 

Kim Kardashian couldn't help but get in on the action as she wrote: 'Nice pics from your "boys trip."' 

For her part, 24-year-old Ozuna also insisted the two are just friends, telling E! News  after the photos surfaced that, 'we aren't romantically involved in any way, shape or form.'
