Kris Jenner's boyfriend and a member of the Kardashian-Jenner family has been in the spotlight for a long; here's everything you need to know about him.
After hundreds of seasons (well, not quite) and a lot of turmoil, Keeping Up With The Kardashians comes to an end in 2021. That doesn't mean we don't care about every member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan. Corey Gamble, Kris Jenner's boyfriend, is one of the newest members of America's first family, with Travis Barker and Kylie Jenner's future child.
So, if you're interested in learning more about Corey, here's everything you need to know.
Who is Corey Gamble?
Corey Gamble is a business executive and talent manager who is best known for being Kris Jenner's boyfriend for over six years and appears on KUWTK regularly.
Corey is from Atlanta, Georgia, and attended Morehouse College in Atlanta to study business marketing. He now resides in Los Angeles with Kris.
He was born on November 10, 1980, and is 41 years old, making him the same age as Kris' second eldest daughter, Kim Kardashian.
It also implies that while Corey and Kris are 25 years apart in age, their birthdays are only five days apart, making them both Scorpios (which is important, obviously). Kris was born on November 5, 1955, and she is 66 years old.
How long have Corey and Kris been dating?
In August 2014, Corey and Kris met during fashion designer Riccardo Tisci's 40th birthday party in Ibiza. Kanye West threw the party, and to be honest, we can't think of a more opulent setting for these two to meet.
Sheree Buchanan, star of Atlanta Exes, is said to have dated Corey for three years. At the time the couple met, Kris was going through divorce proceedings following her split from Caitlyn Jenner.
It's unclear when Corey and Kris made their relationship public after meeting, but by October 2014, Corey had joined the Kardashian family on a trip to Las Vegas for Kim's birthday, implying that they were dating.
In April 2015, while on a double date with Tish and Billy Ray Cyrus, the couple became Instagram-official. We adore a famous friendship, even if it is a little strange.
Despite some small breakup rumors beginning in 2017, the couple was later rumored to be engaged when Kris appeared on The Late Late Show in August 2018 with a huge ring. Kris, on the other hand, chose to eat a cricket rather than confirm or deny Corey's engagement.
We're not clear if they were *actually* engaged, are engaged, or called the engagement off. Since then, they've appeared on the Met Gala red carpet twice and exchanged beautiful birthday wishes on their individual Instagram accounts. Goals!
Is it true that Corey worked with Justin Bieber?
Corey is said to be working as a talent manager for SB Projects, a media mogul Scooter Braun's entertainment organization that handles Justin Bieber (and Kanye too, FYI).
When Corey first met Kris, he was assumed to be working as Justin Bieber's tour manager, and the two appear to be good friends, with Corey even referring to Justin as his “nephew.”
Is there any tension between Corey and the Kardashian-Jenner family?
Corey has been involved in multiple arguments featured on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and he is no stranger to drama.
First, it was revealed on an episode in May 2019 that Kanye had texted Corey asking why none of the Kardashian-Jenners had met his family, with Khloe adding, “we tried to get to know him, but he has not been receptive throughout this whole thing,” before later apologizing.
Kendall accused Corey of siding with Kylie and ordering her to “f**k off” after a dispute between the two last year.
After Kendall confronted Corey, he responded by saying, “You've been a jerk for a long time. You're an a**hole when you want to be, and you get worked up about nothing. I'm about to tell you the reality of your current situation. You apologize for a reason, don't you? “- but it's unclear whether Corey and Kendall have made amends.
Is there a Jenner Corey is best friends with Kylie?
On KUWTK, Corey also had a spat with Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick over how to discipline their daughter Penelope.
“If P scratches me, I'm whipping her ass,” Corey said after Penelope scratched a nanny, later adding, “Give her a paddling for sure.”
Naturally, Kourtney and Scott were not pleased with the remarks, and the situation quickly escalated, with Kourtney declaring, “He [Corey] will never be alone with my kids, and if he does that in front of any of us, there will be a f*cking issue!”
Regardless of what has been said in the past between Corey and members of the Kardashian-Jenner family, they appear to be getting along in recent months.
Corey traveled with the Kardashian family to a private island in Tahiti for Kim Kardashian's 40th birthday celebration, where he took involved in an epic dance-off with Tristan Thompson that finished with Corey doing the SPLITS. We were blown away, and Corey seemed to be the life of the party.
What have Corey's Kardashian-Jenner relatives said about him?
Kim seized the opportunity to criticize Corey with a slightly cheeky joke during her Saturday Night Live opening monologue in October 2021. She remarked, “I'm just so much more than that reference shot my sisters presented their plastic surgeon.”
“But there is one thing I am proud of: no one could ever accuse me of being a gold digger. I'm not sure how you become one, to be honest. So I asked Corey, my mother's lover.”
What's Kris Jenner's take on Corey?
Kris uploaded a series of images of the couple with the message, “Wishing Corey a happy birthday in November 2021.” “@coreygamble had a birthday today!! You are my best friend, confidant, travel enthusiast, therapist, problem solver, golf buddy, protector, advisor, and the best, most wonderful dad to my children and grandchildren!!!
“You are such an important part of my heart and soul, and I adore you, baby… Thank you for everything you've done for me!! I am extremely fortunate.
