‘Things Are Not As They Seem:’ French Montana’s Estranged Wife Issues Warning To Khloe Kardashian Amid Dating Rumors

April 9, 2014  |  

Sources: Instagram, Twitter

The wife of rapper Karim “French Montana” Kharbouch has a few words for his new rumored girlfriend, Khloe Kardashian. Deen Kharbouch, who mothers the entertainer’s four-year-old son, Kruz, recently told Life & Style magazine that the reality star needs “to be careful” because there’s a chance she’s being deceived.

“Things are not as they seem,” Deen told the magazine before sharing that her husband of seven years abandoned his family as soon as his rap career took off.

“As soon as he popped, it was as if Kruz and I didn’t exist. He practically abandoned us!” she exclaimed. “Sometimes we don’t see him for two or three months.”

She adds that the “Ain’t Worried About Nothin'” rapper currently pays $7,000 per month in child support, but adds that it’s not something he volunteered to do.

“I had to go to court for that.”

This wouldn’t be the first time Deen has called out her famous ex. Last year she took to Twitter to blast him for being a negligent parent.

“@FrencHMonTanA is a HORRIBLE father,” she tweeted. “@FrencHMonTanA has not seen his son in months.. His son is in the hospital and he could careless. #Fatherlesschild … Your son is not for photo ops only. @frenchmontana is a fake f*ck that uses people #vampire.@FrencHMonTanA where is your son ??”

One thing that the estranged couple does seem to agree on, however, is the fact that their marriage took a huge hit once he became famous.

“Man, I couldn’t do it; that’s why we got separated,” French said at the time. “At first it was smooth, but then as much as people think that money changes you, it’s changing them around you. A person ain’t gonna treat you the same now that they think that you think you somebody. You around so many beautiful women, that’s a conflict too. It’s just about finding somebody that understand the game, what you’re into. You can’t expect to make all this money and not go through problems. You can’t expect God to give you everything you want without taking something away.”

It’s also reported that friends of Khloe are worried that becoming serious with French will land her in a Lamar-like situation a few years from now.

“They think she’s headed down the same path she did with her ex,” one source claims. “She’s still figuring out what she wants, but this guy is bad news.”

Only time will tell what’s really going on here…

    This Rooster should have cleaned up his backyard before he let another hen or hens in his barn to sample that “ish” he pushing as a man-child. If this Rooster did that – he wouldn’t have a bitter hen putting his “failings” in the street like a wounded hen. This Rooster started this road to buffoonery when he “stepped” to sample another hen(s). So when the wifey hen got wind she did what she does best “put it out there” again if the Rooster cleaned his “ish” up we wouldn’t have this calamity going on. Clean it up, be a Man and do right by your son or continue being a Rooster searching for something that ultimately – really ain’t nuthin!!!! Your road to buffoonery is paved you Triflin’ Rooster.

    Very sad. I’ll just add that I think his wife looks better than khole. Hope everything works out

  • Bill

    A black guy not taking care of his baby momma and kids……….shocking. In other news the sun is hot.

    • mmmdot

      Excuse you moron that’s his WIFE and the only have ONE kid. So shut it up, thanks.

  • Just Plan Tired

    this is sad, this is why our young boy and girls end up messed up.
    God did not give him this talent to put away his family, he did that himself, because a pretty women is better that a GOOD one in his view. She is still his wife not his ex-wife. Don’t divorce him just yet, let him keep on making that money, then set yourself up to get all you can. What goes around, comes around.

  • mmmdot

    I really don’t give a damn about Khloe…but I think it’s sickening if he really wasn’t man enough to support his own wife and son and had to literally be forced to so by the courts. I also think it’s disgusting if he’s just sending child support checks and not spending time fathering his own son. If he’s working/traveling, that’s what the phone and Skype are for. Who the hell doesn’t spend any time seeing or talking their own 4 year old child, even when that child is in the hospital? That goes BEYOND having a lack of character. He is a sp@rm donor, not a father.

  • Aaliyah Noelle

    French isn’t cute and he can barely speak not to mention he SUCKS at rapping. Just stack your child support checks,sit back,and relax.

  • I can sympathize with both sides. As soon as these men get ‘on’ they forget all about the women who had their back. The new women don’t always know what’s going on so you can’t blame them, but they can Google him to see if he’s still married. Ever since the Alicia Keys/Swizz Beatz/Mashonda scandal, I have lost all respect for the innocent side chick. Some women are so thirsty and desperate that they really don’t care and Khloe is one of them, She is on the rebound from Lamar and is going from one man to the next. Women need to start doing a little investigating. If you are dating a man that isn’t taking care of kids, is cheating on his wife, or is lying about his relationship, what do you think he’s going to do to you? Ask Gabrilelle Union.

    • Kiki

      Word. I had no inkling french was married, yet he’s a feature on “loyal”

      • mmmdot

        Me neither, but even worse then that, he’s acting like his 4 year old child doesn’t exist except for photo ops. SMH.

  • Rae

    Can’t believe that after all Khloe went through she’d date a married man. Even if French and his wife are separated, they’re still legally married. This makes for an incredibly messy situation.

  • Fortunately or unfortunately the shelf life of the majority of rappers is very brief. She should have her husband back soon if she wants him . . . . What I would be doing is stacking that child support money while he can afford it for their son’s future.

  • YoungAfrique

    omg these people..

  • prettyredbone

    Seriously, he was with Trina and now with Khloe and the whole time he was married what a dog. French doesn’t even have any bars or good rhymes so if he was smart he’d stick close to his wife b/c he ain’t got that much more of a career left.

    • Machone

      I didn’t even know this guy was married and he’s talking bout “LOYAL” LOL

  • Jan

    I don’t like her way of dealing with it, but I hope she gets the healing she needs. You know the biggest revenge and greatest reward you can ever win is letting it go and moving on. I know its hard, but you can’t let strife and wraith brew in your life. Stop blasting this man and pray for him… and in the meantime pray for yourself.

  • Tiassopinkmommy

    She looks terrible in that picture.

  • Kiki

    She seems bitter. The fact she put their business on twitter gave him the excuse he needed to not see her or his son. If he’s no good, fine. Keep your head up, dignity in check, and a spring in your step. If shes a good woman, a good man will take pride in making her his wife.

    • sunny

      LOL, some people just don’t get marriage vows. Of course she is pissed… this man promised God he would be her husband until death due them apart!

      • Shawndrea Rachelle


      • Zhanon Morales


      • Kiki

        Your intelligence has no bounds. Of course shes pissed. She took her vows seriously and he didn’t. The way she expressed her feelings didn’t show her in the best light. Putting your financial business out there is messy.

    • She is definitely bitter. Every woman he dates, she got something to say. She needs to get over it and move on. It is what it is.

  • 9Boots

    “You can’t expect God to give you everything you want without taking something away.”

    Right because God gave you endless amounts of booty calls and stippers and took away your wife and son. Your god is satan. The true God says he will always make a path for escape.

    • Kiki

      Basically he blew up, got distracted by all of these beautiful women that want him for his money and no longer cares for the woman that held him down.

      • 9Boots

        and he had the audacity to bring God’s name into it. Shameful.

      • Mahone

      Preach! You spoke that truth

    • mmmdot


  • soisaid

    French had his life with his ex and thats why she’s an ex. he’s living a different life (still his life) so let him live it. no matter that you had to take him to court. you won! take care of your son. you can still date and remarry and put a positive man in you and your sons life. khloe doesn’t need warnings, she is grown and independant. he may just be her stepping stone and he may be the one who ends up getting played.

    • Lala-Adams

      I don’t think she’s to concerned about who this guy is dating…her concern is her son. She didn’t say anything really about who the guy is dating. Money do change the people around but it can also change you. It should never change the relationship a parent has with a child. Money is useless in a little childs eyes….they just want to be around you.

      • soisaid

        read the title again please. thats what i was responding to,

    • Linda M McCuff

      Easy for you to say, you were not married to him nor did you have a child with him. This woman was greatly wronged by this man, her and their son. The advice seemed sound, but she’s a person not an andriod.The Kardasian’s really have to stop picking up other peoples trash. That’s how she ended up with Lamar. Then at the end cried about how bad she’s been treated. People felt sorry for her then, but I don’t she’ll get the sympathy pass again. People need to learn something about loyalty, if she can ride it out when things are low, find some character to remember her when the tide rises. The black family has to be more than a fairy tale, our people can’t survive as a fable, or a unite that use to be. If were going to make it to the future, we must prepare, plan and build and complete

      • Kiki

        You made good points but French isn’t black. He’s Moroccan. If nobody knew french was married what makes you think khloe did? There’s no solid evidence she’s with French anyway. They said she was with game last week too. Blogs speculate. Truth is you can bring a horse to water, you can’t make it drink. You cannot make a grown arse man be a father. He either wants to there or he doesn’t, and if he doesn’t how crap will that make the child feel knowing the mother had to force the dad to bond with them? The wife is responsible for herself and her child. Khloe is responsible for Khloe, not how french’s wife feels.

        • Linda M McCuff

          Hello Kiki, If a woman is invovled with a man no matter how casual, she should learn something about him. Weather the man is married or not really must be a the top of her need to know list. And there are just too many ways and means to get that information. As far as it being no ones personal responsibility to understand anothers feelings, well that goes to do unto others as you would have it done to you.. My problem with this is the fact that a man has to be forced to be a father at all.. A true man doesn’t have to be forced, he just does what needs to be done. Weather black or other step up and be what you are suppose to be. As far ad Khloe is concern, she had a huge bite out of that apple, and should in no way want to be guilty of the same thing that has afflicted her own life. It’s not unreasonable to expect him to be a father, he did have his part in helping to procreate him. This move on mentality is hurtful to the family unit. Someone has to step it up and get the head on straight and parent these children. And that goes for both parents. If not, this mixed up mess that exist now, this nomadic fever that is driving people from one mate to the other, will become the new normal. And after a period of time with that, it will certainly become an unbearable world for everyone.

          • Kiki

            Ur taking my words out of context. French used to date Trina – she never said a word. The minute she sees him partying with Khloe shes making her presence known. Shes using the child as a means to whip him into shape. Whether french is a crap father/husband is no ones business. U can’t drag someone without dragging yourself down. French broke up hjs family therefore french will pay for this later on. U cannot force a man to do something he does not want to do. Shes dragging him on twitter – the 1st thing people think is “shes drama- no wonder he left.” When u know better u do better.

            • Linda M McCuff

              Hi Kiki, you misunderstand me, your complaint is that she’s calling him out because he’s with Khloe, and I get that. I also understand that you can’t make a man do right. I don’t care who he’s with now or then, do right by your son. Her motives concerning this, well only God knows what they are. And she made it everybodies concern when she aired it thru the social medium outlets. So everybody now has an opinon about their business. But her argument is still valid, it’s right for her to expect him to be a father to their son. Woman are giving men to much of a pass when it comes to being a responsible parent. I don’t care how much money he paid for child support, that doesn’t make up for him not being a hands on father. What man could teach his son the lessons of life better than him. Most of the time when a woman is dealing with a man that has children outside of her relationship with him, will not encourage support, and in many cases would rather he didn’t have any thing to do with his kids at all. Sister it’s wrong and any man worth his salt wouldn’t stand for that from any woman. If he doesn’t desire the mother of his children anymore, at least be a father to their child. She can’t force anyone to do anything, that’s a given. But is she to suffer in silence. If drawing attention to this slacker can bring him to heel, fine make some noise. But i’ll be darn if I’d take that laying down. This just the way that I see it, and I wish more had the same veiw, but to each his own. It’s been a pleasure chatting with you, peace.

            • hi-liter

              I was just about to say the same thing. Where was she (the wife) when French was dating Trina. I had heard he was married when he first hit the seen, but I thought they had divorced by now. Everyone knew he was dating Trina.

              • Kiki

                Exactly. He claimed Trina before he claimed his wife. The wife sees him with someone (khloe) with money and shows herself. Shes riding this situation for her own gain.

        • LissaJ

          Morocco is not a race – it’s a country.

        • tracy

          Please do not get into that nonsense YES there are black Morroccans, some people just do not travel. Its like saying there are no black Puerto Ricans when you know there are. French is on the black side of Morrocco and there are whiter European looking Morrocons too . Everyone in Morrocco is not the same. And Arab is a culture not a race.

        • Anita

          Morocco is not a race.
          French is not of the negro race. His family is from North Africa which is mostly occupied by persons, like French Montana, of arab berber descent. He was married to a black woman. They had a son.
          Breaking down and classifying race can become a real headache so I will just leave it at that. : )

      • soisaid

        opinions are easy to come by, i agree, and everyone is entitled to their own. a man leaving his marriage, kids etc is nothing new. and its not a black thing. french is not even black. i was simply stating the topic which states she is sending out a warning,. my view is khloe has money out the wazoo and is a socialite. i can’t see her getting hurt by him like he hurt his ex. and putting this man down on twitter and airing dirty laundry is not lady like. she got the child support and her child. its not the end of the world when a relationship is over. just move on.

        • Linda M McCuff

          We could go back and forth with differing oppinons on this matter, but I won’t. I will say that when ever a family is broken for whatever the reason, it’s sad. Of course it’s not the end of everyones world, but the end of their world. I also agree that using the social media as means of communicating personal feelings is inmature. But her reaching out this way said to me that she had these things to say to him, and he had cut her and their son completely off. It is also plain to see that she is still very hurt by what was done to their family. So she did what she felt necessary, and it is what it is. But as far as the black family goes, I am passionate because we have serious issues with loyality. And if we continue this present course we will be a byword or what use to be. Their situation is commonplace amoung our own, and this lack of commitment really has to change, if a black family is going to survive. This move on attitute is why there is a lack of family. The problem is, that everyone has moved, and this nomadic fever has given men and women the excuse to abandon the only thing worth staying for, and that’s the children.I think that this is her complaint. It is not unreasonable for her to expect him to man up and be a father.

    • Kiki

      Thank you. French is gonna do what French wants to do – period. Shes chasing him to be a father, like what kinda ish is that?

  • Gert

    Sometimes there is a such thing as commonsense and right now Khloe is choosing not to use it.
    To continue to do the same thing and have the same patterns and think you are going to get a different response / outcome

      That’s the definition of insanity, and we all know the KarTRASHians are insane, so Khloe is on the right track..let her continue and perhaps they will all self-destruct.
