In a new interview, he says he’ll take the exposure any way he can get it. “I want to capitalize on it,” French told Billboard. “I’ll get a fan base from everywhere. I just hope I’ll be able to connect with everything that’s going on.”
The next day, Khloe responded on Twitter, “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.” She knows her new boyfriend is using her for fame, but it doesn’t bother her – presumably because he makes her happy.
Previously, sources told Us Weekly that, “[Khloe’s friends] are very skeptical of [French]. They think he’s using Khloe for fame.” Friends are also cynical that he’s too eager to “sit at the cool kids’ table [and] has been trying to get close to people he thinks are popular…. Being with Khloe means everyone knows who French is now, so he’s getting a lot out of it.”
Even though he reportedly used to badmouth Khloe to his own friends. A source told InTouch, “French Montana is certainly using Khloé for the exposure and to propel his own fame. However she may feel about him, it’s highly unlikely that it’s reciprocated. There is a lot of opportunity attached to dating a Kardashian and that is all he is after.”
