Khloe Kardashian reportedly dumped boyfriend French Montana upon finding out he was sending secret texts to her best friend, Malika Haqq. A source claiming to be close to Kardashian released the story to gossip website MediaTakeOut this past Friday.
The source claims that the 30-year-old discovered the texts while examining Montana’s phone, upon which time she discovered multiple pages worth of messages sent back and forth between the two. Although there has not yet been any reports that the texts contained anything of a sexual or unfaithful nature (the most that was alleged was that the texts were inappropriate), Kardashian was reportedly overcome with feelings of betrayal upon viewing them, as her now-ex boyfriend had clearly made an effort to keep the two’s contact a secret from her. The fact that she and Haqq had been best friends since childhood was also a contributing factor in the reality television stars’ extreme level of upset, as she felt as though neither of them truly cared about her best interests and did not hesitate to go behind her back in order to communicate.
Mere hours after the story hit the news, Haqq took to social media by posting a picture on Instagram, with a message stating that people cannot change the past or delay the inevitable, but must focus on being there for each other in every aspect that they can. The 31-year-old had reportedly become a huge source of comfort for Kardashian following her split from basketball star Lamar Odom, from whom she separated last year following his struggles with drug addiction and rumored infidelity.
Many of Kardashian’s fans were not sorry to see the back of Montana (real name Karim Kharbouch), as they felt the rapper was never a good match for her. During the span of their eight month relationship, many reports circulated questioning the Moroccan entertainer’s real motive behind dating the businesswoman. It was suggested that he was merely doing so in order to better advance his own publicity, a rumor that Montana himself did nothing to shoot down. On the contrary, he essentially confirmed it during an interview with Billboard Magazine that was conducted in mid-August. In the interview, the rapper admitted that he was going to use the high-profile standing of their relationship to his advantage, and that he felt it was necessary to capitalize on it in whatever way he could.
This statement enraged many of Kardashian’s fans, who felt she had been through enough heartache through her failed marriage to Odom, and that she deserved someone who cared for her and treated her right rather than someone who used her to boost their own fame. It was also alleged that their relationship was merely a publicity stunt set up by Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner, who was said to have paid Montana to appear on the family’s reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
It remains to be seen whether or not the recent reports surrounding the nature of Khloe Kardashian and French Montana’s breakup are true. However, the television personality is reportedly 100% through with the rapper for the time being.
