“Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Kris Jenner is happy her oldest daughter, Kourtney Kardashian, is dating "What Do You Mean?" singer Justin Bieber, Hollywood Life wrote in an exclusive report Monday. The news shocked many: Not only does Kardashian have three children with her longtime on-again, off-again boyfriend Scott Disick, but she’s 15 years older than Bieber!
Jenner, 60, is no stranger to large age gaps. Her boyfriend, Corey Gamble, is a year younger than her oldest daughter.
Age aside, Jenner believes the fling is a good thing for Kardashian. “Kris feels like Kourtney’s lighthearted romance with Justin is just what the doctor ordered,” a source told Hollywood Life. “She adores Justin and if he can put a smile on her daughter’s face, then that’s all that matters! Kourtney deserves to be happy and have some fun in her life. Maybe her little fling with Justin will be a wake-up call for Scott.”
Kardashian and Disick split over the summer, apparently for good this time, after he was caught canoodling with an ex-girlfriend over the Fourth of July weekend. Their breakup is currently being shown on Season 11 of “KUWTK.”

Jenner isn’t the only one in the family who supports the two dating. Her youngest daughters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, are “not against it at all” and are “having fun” teasing Kourtney about it, Hollywood Life wrote in a different story.
But not everyone in the Kardashian-Jenner family is on board with the reported romance. Sister Kim Kardashian West thinks it is “simply gross,” a source said to Hollywood Life, adding: “It’s like Kourt has a fourth child on her hands now. Justin is so young and so immature. The thought of Kourt being intimate with this little boy makes Kim sick to her stomach.”
Us Weekly was the first to break the dating rumor Saturday. “Justin bragged to friends recently that he has been hooking up with Kourtney Kardashian,” an insider told the publication Sunday. A second added: “Justin bragged to friends recently that he has been hooking up with Kourtney Kardashian.”
Even Gossip Cop, a website that debunks celebrity hoaxes, said the dating rumor was true. They are “casually hooking up,” a source told the the outlet Saturday.
Neither Kardashian nor Bieber have responded to the rumors.
