Who Is Harry Hudson? New Details About Kourtney Kardashian’s Rumored Boyfriend

Is he “the one”?

Kourtney Kardashian raised eyebrows this weekend when she attended Sunday services with her new rumored boyfriend, Harry Hudson. The Sunday services were led by Kourtney’s brother-in-law Kanye West, and Radar Online is reporting that the duo is “getting closer.”

Hudson, 23, is also reportedly spending more time with Kourtney’s three children – Penelope, Mason, and Reign – and taking the time to truly get to know the eldest Kardashian sister.

Harry Hudson is just the latest in Kourtney Kardashian’s long line of rumored boyfriends. Kourtney, 40, has allegedly dated the likes of Travis Barker, Luka Sabbat, David Duron, and even rapper Meek Mill!

But of all the men Kourtney Kardashian allegedly dated since her split from longtime boyfriend Scott Disick, the only one she’d dated for an extended period of time was Younes Bendjima, the 25-year-old Algerian model who recently had a very messy breakup with the reality star. And, in a recent episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kourtney revealed that while she had “no regrets” with how the relationship ended, she felt a little bit of “anxiety” with being single again.

Kourtney also confessed that she was wary about getting involved with someone again – that she was going to “enjoy herself” and “focus on her kids” now that she was no longer involved with Bendjima. She also recently admitted that she’d only been “in love” with one person in her life: Disick, who is also the father of her three children.

So, it was shocking to see Kourtney Kardashian boo’ed up so soon after her most recent split!

But who is Harry Hudson? Here’s what we know about Kourtney Kardashian’s new rumored boyfriend.

1. He’s no stranger to the family.

Not everyone can get access to the Kardashian-Jenner clan, so if a man is interested in dating one of the sisters, it helps his case to already know one of them.

In Harry Hudson’s case, he’s one of Kylie Jenner’s best friends. In fact, the duo are so close that, according to Hollywood Life, Kylie announced the sudden death of Hudson’s father just a few months ago on her Instagram live feed. It’s assumed – though not confirmed – that this is how Kourtney and Harry met.

2. He has a lot of famous friends.

Harry Hudson isn’t just friends with the Kardashian-Jenner clan, though. According to Rolling Stone, he’s also very close with Willow and Jaden Smith – the children of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith – and they’ve all formed a collective called MSFTS.

Incidentally, MSFTS is signed to Roc Nation, the record label first founded by Hip Hop superstar Jay-Z in 2008.

3. He’s a cancer survivor.

In 2013, when he was 20 years old, Hudson was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a form of cancer that starts in the lymphatic system. He’d just released his first song, and subsequently kept a series of journals chronicling his treatment and recovery. These journals would go on to inspire his subsequent releases, including 2014’s “Learn 2 Love” single.

He also chronicled his cancer journey on last year’s album, Yesterday’s Tomorrow Night, which was released on Roc Nation. But Hudson’s cancer journey didn’t just inspire his music: according to Billboard, he’d worked closely with the Teen Cancer America organization to spearhead a campaign that helped build a cancer treatment center at Vanderbilt University.

4. He was inspired to sing by an unlikely source.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Harry Hudson revealed that he initially wanted to be a rapper.

“I wanted to be the white crazy kid. I said wild [things] but I really just had a lot of inner demons I didn't know how to express,” he said. But after he had a chance meeting with John Atterbury, the former vice president of Death Row Records (the label which helped launch both Dr. Dre’s solo career and the careers of other “hardcore” rappers like Snoop Dogg and Warren G), Hudson decided to sing instead of rap.

“John was the first person to ever believe in my music. I thought he was out of his mind when he told me try singing. I didn't think I could push myself to do it. I never had one day of singing lessons. I didn't know the first thing. But I started to sing,” he told the Los Angeles Times.

5. He sells out all the shows he plays.

Famous friends and Kourtney Kardashian aside, Harry Hudson has managed to cultivate a large and dedicated fan base. According to V Magazine, he sold-out his May 9, 2018 show at Brooklyn’s Rough Trade, a feat he’d accomplished at L.A.’s legendary Troubadour on May 1, 2018, as well. After a successful performance at SXSW in Texas, Hudson booked a nationwide tour in support of “Can Cowboys Cry,” which includes a stop at Lollapalooza in Chicago this summer.
