Who Is Khloe Kardashian's Rumored New Love, French Montana?

French Montana

Khloe Kardashian has been spotted hanging out with rapper French Montana. Are they the real deal?

A few weeks ago, we found ourselves wondering who the stunning Khloe Kardashian should date next after her split from baller Lamar Odom. She is a total catch, with lots to offer any guy smart enough to look her way. Well, she didn't consult our list for suggestions, as the reality star has been seen hanging out with rapper French Montana, who did not make our roundup of possible Khloe suitors. 

It could be a totally casual hookup or it could be the start of something substantial for Khloe, 29. And we know what you are thinking: French Montana? Who? 

Let's get to know the rapper, shall we? Here's some intel about French Montana, who is showing himself to be a bit of a bad boy. But so was Lamar, at least toward the end of their marriage, so it seems Khloe likes raunchy boys. It keeps her on her toes.

Now about French Montana ...

... he is not from France or Montana. He was born in Morocco. He speaks French and Arabic, too. So he is wordly.

He's Karim Kharbouch on all legal documents. That's his real name. His stage name is a combo of one of the languages he speaks and the iconic Al Pacino character from Scarface.

He was raised in the Bronx and he learned English when he got to the U.S. at the age of 13. He is 29, too, and a Scorpio to Khloe's Cancer. Two water signs? That could make this romance (or "showmance," if that's what it reveals itself to be) very tricky.

Here is where things get a little bit dicey. Mr. Montana was reportedly shot in the head in the early '00s. He was leaving a New York recording studio and obviously survived. But that's some scary bidness right there. 

Another thing that might concern Khloe's sisters about French Montana? He and wife Deen are in the middle of a divorce. They have a son, Kruz, born in 2009. Deen recently told Life & Style that if Khloe has gotten together with her soon-to-be-ex-husband, she should be careful. Deen says she supported the rapper and his ambitions but French Montana — whose latest platter is Excuse My French and was also featured on Jennifer Lopez's "I Luh Ya Papi" — bounced when he started to get famous. Now she and her son go months without seeing him. 

Not exactly our idea of a dream rebound.
