Khloe Kardashian & French Montana Enjoy 'Special' Bond: 'KUWTK' Slammed For Pushing Ailing Lamar Odom To Film

Khloe Kardashian has transformed her body in recent years, devoting hours to the gym as well as dieting to sculpt and slim.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star even succeeded in keeping off the weight amid the stress of caring for her estranged husband, Lamar Odom, after he was found unconscious in a brothel following an alleged drug and alcohol binge. Now, Lamar has been released from the hospital, and Khloe has baffled fans with mixed messages about whether she's rekindling her romance with Odom or renewing a past relationship with French Montana.

To clarify how he sees the situation, Montana explained their bond, revealed People.

French is aware that fans view him as linked to Kardashian, and he accepts that association, even describing their relationship in detail.

"We're gonna be friends forever, me and Khloe. We got a special kind of relationship. That's one of my best friends."
In addition to Kardashian, Montana is in touch with the entire Keeping Up With The Kardashians clan. French hinted at "something special" that he and Kanye West will unveil in upcoming weeks.

In addition to that future "surprise," French and Kanye teamed up for his song, "Figure It Out," along with rapper Nas. Fans also can look forward to his soon-to-be released album as well as a movie with Chris Brown described as a "gangster" film.

While Khloe enjoys that "special relationship" with her ex, she's also attempted to clarify how she feels about Lamar. Odom and Kardashian spent long hours together when he was hospitalized after the overdose, and Khloe has continued to support him since his release.

But Kardashian recently shared that she and Lamar are not dating, noted Hollywood Life.

After Khloe and Odom appeared together on Snapchat, rumors circulated that they were together again.

"Just because you film with an ex doesn't mean you are with an ex," Kardashian informed her followers.

Kardashian even threw some shade at those who dared to assume that because she chose Lamar as her first Snapchat co-star, it meant they were back together.

"People can be cordial these days. It's called the new millennium," Khloe informed her fans.

In addition, Kardashian reportedly plans to go through the process of finalizing her divorce from Odom. The mixed messages that she's been sending, however, in spending so much time with Lamar have caused her to try to clarify the relationship.

And because Lamar has not fully recovered and still has health concerns, that's caused some to criticize the Keeping Up With The Kardashians clan, according to Radar Online.

"Lamar has been shooting and he is not well," an insider told Radar. "He's very slow mentally."

However, the show must go on, and those involved in the Kardashian and Jenner family reality TV show want that show to include Odom and his current status. Despite that pressure, some production team members are worried about how the stress of filming will affect Lamar.

In addition, for those who worked with Odom before his near-fatal overdose in the brothel, the difference in his condition is causing concern.

"The crew can see it's totally obvious he has some ongoing issues with his recovery because he acts different than before," explained the insider, who alleges that Khloe's estranged husband has been manipulated into participating on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

"What's even worse [is that] Odom is being manipulated into doing things on the show by everyone because he just says 'Yes.' "
As for what he wants in the future? Lamar is hoping that he and Khloe can rekindle their romance and have a baby together, according to Hollywood Life's source.

"He still wants to give her a baby. That's always been his plan," shared the source. "Even though he lost some of memory, he never forgot that he wants to begin a family with Khloe."
