Khloe Kardashian and French Montana may not be seriously dating right now, but that’s not stopping one member of Khloe’s family from hoping that they get together sometime soon.
According to a Kardashian-family insider, Kanye West is “desperate” for Khloe Kardashian and French Montana to hook up once again, a source told Radar Online.
“Now Khloe knows there’s no future with Lamar, so Kanye is desperate for her to try dating French again. She and French have remained friends and will occasionally hookup for old time’s sake, but Kanye knows he wants to be more than just a friend with benefits.”
It wasn’t so long ago when French Montana made a comment about the Keeping Up with the Kardashians that caused fans to wonder if the former couple could be getting back together. In April, Montana told People that he and Khloe have “a special kind of relationship.”
“We’re gonna be friends forever, me and Khloe. We got a special kind of relationship. That’s one of my best friends.”
Khloe Kardashian and French Montana: best friends forever? It’s a good start, but it just might not be good enough for Kanye West, according to reports.

Khloe and French previously dated for eight months back in 2014 before the split, which sources claim Khloe initiated because French was being too “needy and obsessive.” At the time, Kardashian insiders told E! News that “Khloé thinks he’s a great guy but it just wasn’t working out.”
According to the source for Radar Online, Kanye West believes that “it just wasn’t working out” because Khloe was still dealing with feelings for Lamar Odom.

Obviously, things have changed dramatically between Khloe and Lamar since Khloe dated French in 2014. When Lamlam was found unconscious in a Las Vegas-area brothel in October of 2015, it was Khloe who rushed to his side. Khloe also helped Odom overcome the life-threatening repercussions of his reported drug overdose.
In the months since, Khloe has dealt with her feelings for Lamar in a rather public matter. On her now-canceled talk show, Kardashian admitted that staying married to her estranged husband would be her “best dream,” but Kardashian has come to the conclusion that she is “at peace” with her decision to go through with the divorce.
Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom were married after a whirlwind romance in 2009. In 2013, the pair filed for divorce among allegations of cheating and drug use by Odom. When Odom was rushed to the hospital in October, the divorce had not yet been finalized, and Khloe opted to withdraw the divorce petition in order to keep making medical decisions for Odom. Now, reports indicate that she’s ready to move on.

Does the divorce from Lamar Odom make room for French Montana in Khloe Kardashian’s heart? Khloe’s brother-in-law Kanye West sure hopes so, according to the Radar Online report. Ever since Khloe broke up with basketball player James Harden earlier this year, celebrity news websites have postulated about the relationship between Khloe and French, and sources report that Kanye believes now is the right time for the duo to get back together.
What do you think? Do you think Khloe Kardashian and French Montana should give their relationship another go around?
