Kris Jenner has been a huge part of all our lives for years now, ever since she momager-ed her way onto our screens back in 2007. If the Kardashian-Jenners are one of the biggest celebrity dynasties going then Kris is the tour de force that masterminded the whole thing. But given that so much of her personal life plays out on reality TV, how much do you really know about her six-year-long relationship with boyfriend Corey Gamble? Aside from the 29-year age gap (which, let's be clear, nobody would mention if she were a man).
Here's everything we know about Kris and Corey's relationship, starting with the most recent update.
Corey crops up in a preview clip for S18 of KUWTK, doing shots with Kylie while Kris looks on angrily because the family are going to be late for their dinner reservation.Eventually Kris shouts, "let's go or not go," and gives Corey and Kylie the kind of steely glare only Kris Jenner can do. But the most spine-chilling look from momager Kris comes when Corey tells Kylie, "we don't rush, we just float through life like unicorns."
Not your wisest move Corey...
And here's the rest of Kris Jenner and Corey Gamble's relationship timeline...
Corey and Kris reportedly met back in 2014 at a party in Ibiza that Kanye West threw for fashion designer Riccardo Tisci's 40th birthday. Reportedly Gamble noticed Jenner saying that she looked good "in a nice *ss dress," and the pair got chatting.
At the time Kris was separated from spouse of 25 years, Kaitlyn Jenner, and the ex-couple were in the midst of divorce proceedings.
We're not actually sure when Corey and Kris officially became a couple, but it's thought to have been sometime around late summer to autumn 2014, and that's around the time they were spotted getting cozy at a Kanye performance in at the Life is Beautiful music festival in Las Vegas, before hanging out together at a nightclub called Tao for Kim Kardashian‘s 34th birthday party.
Kris's 59th birthday is here and so is Corey. Not only was he on the guest-list for the big bash, but he appeared in a lot of family and close friend pictures with Kris. Making the whole thing look a little more official.
Corey makes his KUWTK debut and it's quite something. The episode is essentially all about the very loud sex that Kris and Corey keep having around the house, which Kim is not keen on while she's trying to sleep. Unsurprisingly.
"The bed, like, bangs up against the wall," Kim tells the family. "And I was literally trying to pass out and I, like, woke up and I swear I thought I heard moaning."
Uh, so that's a nightmare?
The couple apparently take a break from you-know-what to go on a double date with Tish and Billy Ray Cyrus, seemingly going Instagram official in the process.
Not ones to break with tradition, Kris and Corey are apparently still at it like rabbits. During the season 10 finale of KUWTK, Kris tells Khloé she's "exhausted" because she "has too much sex." And, well, fair play. Although I'm not sure that Khloé wants to know...
As famous couples are wont to do the pair make their Met Gala debut; a significant marker in any celebrity relationship.
Three years into the relationship rumours start swirling that Kris and Corey have broken up after Kim posts a picture of Kris on Instagram with the caption "Caption this.... mine is SWF," as in, 'single white female.'
But apparently realising the implications of the caption, Kim quickly deletes the caption to just read "Caption this..."
Although the rumours had already started by the time Kim changed the caption, this did seem to go some way towards denying them.
Rumours have been going for a while that Corey and Khloé don't get along particularly well. In an episode during series 14 Khloé asks Corey why he is standoffish with her, saying she wants to get to a place where he feels comfortable.
Corey comes in a bit strong at this, saying, "I like all of y’all, but y’all are girls. I’m a dude and I know how that sh*t can go. I’m a young dude dating your mom. Y’all are not really my f*cking kids. We are technically peers."
If it's not break up rumours it's engagement rumours, which Kris slightly started by showing up on The Late Late Show with James Corden wearing a big rock on her ring finger. Plus she full-on ate a cricket (during a game of Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts) to get out of confirming or denying the engagement, so it's not entirely without cause...
As Corden asks her about a possible engagement, saying, "The ring's right there, it's a bit of a giveaway," the camera pans to Corey who is standing backstage looking a little uncertain.
Kris then says, "it's just a ring," before declaring that she would be forgoing the question and instead eating a cricket. Which she somehow does glamorously.
Kris goes on celebrity lawyer Laura Wasser's podcast, Divorce Sucks with Laura Wasser and explains why she'll probably never marry Corey.
"You know, you never say never, but I often say it’s just not what I think I need to do again based on my past," she explained. "I’m in a really great relationship right now, and I’m happy and I don’t want to mess that up."
"I don’t have the need to put on a long, white dress and walk down an aisle. I’ve done that," she continued. "I’ve had the big wedding, I’ve had the babies and the kids—six of them, by the way. It’s not like we need to do that again; my body wouldn’t cooperate if I wanted it to. I think that I just feel really grateful and blessed for my past experiences and I’m looking forward to my future and I just don’t think that I want to go there."
Four years on from his first appearance at a Kris Jenner birthday bash, Corey and Kris looks every bit the happy couple in a picture of the pair cuddling in a picture she posts to Instagram.
Corey and Kris make another appearance on the red carpet at the 2019 Met Gala, accompanied by a whole host of Kardashians and Jenners.
Old kick-offs resurfaced when it was revealed during an episode of KUWTK that Kanye had sent Corey a text questioning why none of the Kardashian-Jenners have ever met any of his family.
During the episode Kim, Scott, Kourtney, Khloé and Kris discuss the issue, with Kim explaining to the family, "Kanye texts Corey something along the lines of, 'Look, we don’t know you, we’ve never met any of your family members'," Kim says. "Of course we’ve all felt that way and thought that, but for Kanye to just so bluntly say that to him - I feel like that was the wrong choice to make at that time."
"Kanye’s delivery wasn’t great," Khloé added. "But the essence of what he said is true; Corey does tend to be pretty secretive and that does have me pretty guarded… We don’t know Corey like that."
Khloé explained that after Kris's divorce she didn't think Kris and Corey's would be in a long-lasting relationship; "I just didn’t feel the need to get that connected or attached," she explained. "Then when I saw time progressing and the relationship was still there, we tried to get to know him, but he has not been receptive in this whole thing."
Kris clapped back at that, telling Khloé, "Nobody really slows down enough to take a look at it from a bird’s eye view of my life. I want you to recognise that when you do question my relationship with Corey, it isn’t okay and it hurts feelings. I think what you guys don’t realise is Corey is really taking care of me like no one ever has in my entire life."
And that seemed to silence them, with Khloé saying she just wanted Kris to be happy, and going with Kim to apologise to Corey. Happy families.
Kris shares several pictures of the couple to celebrate Corey's birthday. She accompanies the post with a gushing caption.
"Happy Birthday @coreygamble!!! I love you babe! Thank you for holding us all down and being such a rock. You are the most amazing partner, best friend and ride or die, and I am truly blessed to have you in my life. Thanks for being on this crazy journey with me. I love you❤️🙏"
Corey makes his Tiktok debut on Kylie's account in a video with Kris, Kylie and Stormi. The video shows Kris then Corey dancing to Auntie Hammy's Pew Pew Pew, before Stormi comes into shot propped up on Kylie's hip. Stormi steals the show, quite frankly.
