What really happened between Khloé Kardashian and French Montana?

Fans who do Keep Up with the Kardashians know that Khloé Kardashian has gone through the wringer with her love life. The reality star’s marriage to ex-NBA player Lamar Odom was notorious for cheating and drug scandals. After the couple split, Odom revealed in his 2019 memoir, Darkness to Light, that he was a self-proclaimed “sex addict” who had also become addicted to cocaine. “Sex was a trigger for me to do drugs,” he told People. “Because you’re doubling down [that] good feeling.”

Another of Khloé’s long-standing, high-profile relationships was with Chicago Bulls player Tristan Thompson. The couple – who have been together since 2016 – share daughter True but split for good in late 2021 when it was revealed Thompson had fathered a child with fitness model Maralee Nichols. In January, Thompson publicly apologized to Khloé via Instagram Stories (via CNN), writing, “My actions have certainly not squared with the way I see you.” Despite reports that Thompson is still trying to win Khloé back , the Good American founder appears to have quietly moved on with a private equity investor she met through big sister Kim Kardashian as of this writing, according to People. Though a source told HollywoodLife the relationship is loose and that Khloé “still considers herself single at this point,” fans are hoping she’s found the happiness she deserves.

Between her tumultuous relationships with Thompson and Odom, it’s easy to forget that Khloé dated another A-lister who made her happy: French Montana.

Montana was Kardashian’s first serious relationship after divorcing Odom, and the two secretly began dating in 2014.

However, it all fell apart when Kardashian split from Montana in September of that same year, per E! News.

Us Weekly broke the news that the couple was on the run, explaining that they were taking a break. “The relationship got too difficult and Khloé had to step back,” an insider told the outlet. A second source added: “It was worth it [Khloé] the [French] What’s more, the rapper never got the Kardashian family’s seal of approval because Kris Jenner reportedly “didn’t agree and told Khloé all the time,” according to the first insider. But to look at it positively, “There wasn’t anything dramatic that prompted the breakup,” Khloé thinks [French is] great guy, but it just didn’t work out,” a source told E! News. Let’s mark this as a win for Kardashian’s ex!

The love was real.” The musician acknowledged that “friendship after a relationship” isn’t always possible, adding that he was “glad we made it.”
