Kourtney Kardashian, a 41-year-old reality star, and Addison Rae, a 20-year-old TikTok influencer, might not seem like obvious friends.

But ever since the social media star, whose full name is Addison Rae Easterling, joined Mason Disick, Kourtney and her ex Scott Disick‘s 10-year-old son, to make a TikTok video in March, she and the Poosh founder have been inseparable.

From their daily workouts to their bikini-clad photo shoots, here’s a complete timeline of their friendship.

March 10, 2020: Rae appeared in a TikTok video with Mason Disick

Kourtney’s eldest child, Mason, joined TikTok in January 2020.

Though his account has since been deleted, along with the rest of his online profiles after he revealed family secrets during an Instagram livestream, the 10-year-old was the first member of the famous family to be seen with Rae.

The popular influencer danced alongside Mason in a TikTok video she shared in March.

Mason’s calendar was hanging on the wall in the background, meaning the video was likely taken at Kourtney’s house in Los Angeles.

David Dobrik, a controversial YouTuber, joined Rae and Mason in another TikTok video on the same day.

He previously visited Kourtney’s house for a cameo in Mason’s TikTok video in January.

While they were discussing their at-home routines, Kourtney mentioned that Rae had been to her house before and asked her to join a session with her trainer.

Later on in the video, the reality star and the social media influencer chatted about their shared desire to go skydiving, and Kourtney suggested they try it together.

After they finished their workout, Rae and Kourtney ate avocado pudding made from a Poosh recipe.

April 8, 2021: Kim said her family suspected Rae was ‘hooking up’ with Kourtney early in their friendship

Kim and Khloé Kardashian tried to “get to the bottom” of the duo’s friendship on a season 20 episode of E!’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” In order to do so, they invited Rae to a family lunch without Kourtney to ask the TikTok personality about her relationship with their sister.

The SKIMS founder said her family wondered if Rae was “hooking up” with Kourtney at the beginning of their friendship. Disick, who was also at the lunch, said he “still” thinks they could be more than friends.

Rae, however, denied ever have a romantic relationship with Kourtney.

“It’s just very weird that that’s what the impression was,” she told them.

Kourtney later told her sisters that her and Rae’s “energies align,” explaining that she has a “young heart and an old soul.”

“I don’t think it’s about age,” she said, adding, “I feel like, we all have such a good circle of people around us. Everyone’s just different ages.”

The social media star made her on-screen debut in the Netflix movie “He’s All That,” a gender-swapped remake of the 1999 romantic comedy “She’s All That.”

While Rae is the film’s lead, playing a popular high school influencer, Kourtney makes several cameos as a cut-throat brand executive. Ahead of the film’s release, the TikToker raved about Kourtney, calling her an “amazing friend of mine, amazing mentor, and person.”

“We got very fortunate that it ended up working out and I’m so glad she got to join me on this. I’m very, very thankful for her,” she told “Access.”

Rae later praised Kourtney’s performance during an interview on E! News’ “Daily Pop.”

“She really did her part and studying her lines. She was nervous too, and so was I, but we worked together, read our lines together as much as we could and she went in there and did her thing and I’m so proud of her,” she said.

September 13, 2021: Fans drew similarities between Rae’s Met Gala gown and a dress Kourtney wore to a Christmas party years prior

One of seven social-media influencers invited to the “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion”-themed Met Gala, Rae arrived on the beige carpet in a red vintage 2003 Tom Ford for Gucci gown.

Rae reportedly told Vogue that she and her image architect Law Roach wanted to choose an American designer who empowers women.

“I wanted to pay homage to that,” she said, according to People.

While the TikToker shared photos of Marilyn Monroe, Cindy Crawford, Cameron Diaz, Britney Spears, and Kate Moss wearing red gowns on her Instagram story before the gala, many fans wondered if Kourtney served as a source of inspiration as well.

The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star wore a similar red dress to her family’s annual Christmas party in 2019, as seen in photos she posted on Instagram.

Despite the visible differences between the garments – Rae’s has straps while Kourtney’s does not – fans wondered if the social media star borrowed the look from her friend’s closet. However, in an email to Insider, a representative for Rae confirmed that the dresses were not the same.
