The intertwined fate of Chris Bumstead and Courtney King

Chris Bumstead never imagined that one day he would be together with his crush, Courtney King. But we can say fate had a different idea for both of them.

“I Slid in his DMs,” Courtney King laughed and Bumstead replied with, “She did, that’s all you need to know.” This was the straightforward answer to the question: how did they meet? But it isn’t the last thing. There is more spice to it. 


“She hit me up in the DMs and I ignored her for a while,” Bumstead laughed out loud while making this statement. The couple were giggling throughout the Q&A session, and by the looks of it, it shows how strong their bond is.

“It was right after the Olympia so like I was bombarded with by sh**,” Bumstead explained and continued with, “She hit me up and I lost that’s the true queen thing.” 

Courtney King sent him a message after the 2018 Mr. Olympia, where Bumstead became a runner-up. Surely it wasn’t a great time for him to respond to messages. So he had his reasons for his ignorance. Technically, they met during the Arnold Classic in 2017, when Courtney was competing. Then, later on, she flew to Canada in November 2018 to meet him in person.
