Bad news for all you hopeless romantics out there. It seems that French Montana and Khloe Kardashian have "broken up," and all that's left is for him to collect his sizeable E! check at the door. RIP, KHLENCH MONTASHA. IF ONLY I'D MADE UP THAT PORTMANTEAU SOONER.
Rumors have been swirling of a split between unlucky-in-love-lately Khloe Kardashian and rapper French Montana. The reason behind the summer fling's sudden breakup? Not only was French Montana's loyalty to the third Kardashian sister questionable, he also was dating her for the popularity benefits that come with all things Kardashian these days—he even admitted as much in an interview with Billboard.
Well, further murmurings reveal that it seems that he was cashing in on the relationship—literally and figuratively. Not only did dating Khloe boost his popularity profile, but the execs at E! wrote him a sizable check for appearing on the family's reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians and the spinoff show Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons.
...An anonymous source told the New York Daily News 'He's expensive, and some people at E! just don't think he's worth the money," the source says. "I've heard execs moaning about it, saying, 'We're just paying so much for him!'"
