French Montana dropped two bombs this week when he revealed that he’s married, but also in the process of getting a divorce.
Who knew that French, born Karim Kharbouch, was a family man? The "Pop That" rapper revealed to TheBoomBox.com that he’s been married since 2007, but that fame spoiled his union.
"Man, I couldn’t do it; that’s why we got separated," French stated. "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."
French added that it wasn’t just money that hurt his marriage. The constant temptation of having scores of women around also damaged the relationship.
"You around so many beautiful women, that’s a conflict, too," French explained. "It’s just about finding somebody that understand the game, what you’re into. But then on the flip side of the coin, you gotta understand their game, what they into."
French’s wife sees things a little differently; however, claiming that the rapper left her and their son high and dry once he got a little famous.
"@Frenchmontana ur trying to use me to get a buzz. Your fans deserve to know the truth. They would be fans no more," tweeted his soon-to-be-ex, Deen Kharbouch. "Abandonment is NOT cool.. Family First!"
Deen added that she and her son need a security upgrade because "thugs" have shown up at their house, presumably to rob the place. And she’s not cool with French dragging their marriage into the spotlight now that things between them are over.
"We have been married for 6 years and NOW he brings me up?" said Deen. She claims to have been ride-or-die for French since the beginning of their relationship, which only recently ended. "Apart for 2months. I worked so hard & helped to get him to where he is. Then all of a sudden he flipped."
To French, though, it seems that his marriage is one of the things that he’s had to give up to achieve success. "You can’t expect to make all this money and not go through problems," he said. "You can’t expect God to give you everything you want without taking something away."
