Did Khloe Kardashian break up with French Montana? According to several reports, the reality star and the rapper have parted ways. The Latin Post reports that the two actually used each other for fame, and their relationship was just for publicity purposes. Sources say that French Montana actually made money while “dating” Khloe — because he was paid to appear on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Are you surprised?
“The way that the Kardashians’ [show] is set up is very unusual. It’s the only show that I know of where a producer can say, ‘Here’s the cast and this is what they’re getting paid.’ Usually to add a cast member to a show, you’d have to fire a cast member to keep the budget balanced. But in this case, Kris just offered French Montana a check to be in the show.”
Khloe Kardashian’s break up was sort of expected — no one actually thought that Koko was going to end up marrying French Montana since this was technically her rebound relationship after her split from estranged husband, Lamar Odom. According to The Latino Post, French Montana was too pricey of a guest to have on the show, and he was being paid way too much money — so he was let go.
“He’s expensive, and some people at E! just don’t think he’s worth the money. I’ve heard execs moaning about it, saying, ‘We’re just paying so much for him.'”
And so French Montana and Khloe Kardashian are no more. Allegedly. The whole thing is sort of weird, but maybe it’s just what Khloe needed to help her move on from her marriage and feel like she was important again. Maybe paying someone to hang out with you isn’t the answer, but it seemed like Khloe was having fun, so it worked out for her.
The Khloe Kardashian break up can hardly even be called that, given the fact that the reality star admitted to knowing that she was being used by French Montana to begin with. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, French recently said that he wanted to “capitalize” on his relationship with Khloe… and while you might have thought that he was pulling one over on the brunette beauty, he wasn’t. Khloe said she knew it all along and she “didn’t care.”
It’s amusing to me that Y’all think I don’t see it. I was the first one to see it. I just don’t care.

So maybe this was just a business deal after all.
