Corey Gamble and Kris Jenner have been linked since 2014, and although it is unlikely they will head down the aisle in the near future (after all, Jenner has already been married twice), they are in a loving and committed relationship. In fact, Jenner has so much love for Gamble that she has publicly praised him by referring to him as her “ride or die,” and expressing how thankful she is to have him in her life.
These two are clearly happy, and they are also living proof that when it comes to love, age is just a number because there’s a big age gap between them (Jenner’s daughter Kourtney Kardashian is older than her boyfriend). Although there is no denying Gamble’s fame has increased since he's been romantically linked to Jenner, there is a lot to be said for him outside of his relationship, and she is also not his only celebrity connection.
Gamble works closely with Justin Bieber, he is a millionaire, and he is a man of many skills. He’s also a really good guy, who is supportive of Jenner, and has even gained the acceptance of the Kardashian-Jenner clan. Below are 20 things to know about him.

She ended the message with, “Thank you for everything you do for all of us... you are always holding it down.”

There is a 25-year age gap between the pair (Gamble is actually younger than Jenner’s oldest child, Kourtney), but despite their age difference, their relationship is still going strong. According to CheatSheet, Jenner was born in San Diego on Nov. 5, 1955, and her partner was born in Atlanta, a good 25 years later, on Nov. 10, 1980.
