Nydailynews: Khloe Kardashian’s Boyfriend French Montana Opens Up About Lamar Odom
Rapper says fans don’t have to worry about cocaine references, although fans may be disturbed after Lamar Odom’s alleged struggles.
When it comes to men, Khloe Kardashian has a type: guys with an uneasy relationship to cocaine.
Kardashian watchers everywhere rejoiced when the reality star left her husband, NBA player Lamar Odom, after his alleged struggles with crack destroyed their relationship.
They were less enthusiastic when she almost immediately took up with French Montana, a rapper with a clique called “The Coke Boys,” who likes to brag about dealing the drug.
“It’s a funny predicament situation,” Montana acknowledged to Confidenti@l, “crack and coke and everything altogether. So if you’re on the outside looking in, of course you’re going to be (confused).”
But the South Bronx-raised rapper, whose single “Don’t Panic” was released Wednesday on iTunes, promises fans don’t have to worry.
“I don’t know about his crack problem,” said Montana, who runs a label called Coke City, referring to Odom. “With me, it’s just my label — it’s just part of my music.” He added, “I’m not an addict or nothing.”
While Montana began his relationship with Kardashian soon after she split with Odom, to whom she’s still married, he insists there’s no hard feelings.
“I don’t think it’s a problem with me and him,” he said. “She was in love and grew out of love, for whatever reasons. I never ask. I never try to know. I just worry about me and her.”
Very sweet. But Montana, who featured a picture of Kardashian on the art for “Don’t Panic” and will appear on her show “Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons,” has faced suspicions that he could be using the family connection to reach a larger audience.
“Honestly, we never even think about it,” he counters. “Obviously hers is a bigger fan base because they’ve been on for about 10 years and this is the biggest show ever,” he said. “But I don’t pay attention to that kind of stuff.”
