Many people are crediting Khloé Kardashian — at least partially — for Lamar Odom‘s incredible strides toward recovery, and even her ex French Montana is singing her praises. The rapper spoke to Entertainment Tonight after performing at the Tidal X: 10/20 event at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Tuesday, and said every woman should be ride-or-die like Khloé.
“Oh, man. I love her. I love her for doing what she’s doing,” he said. “I feel like every woman should be like that. If you ever had a situation with somebody, and you get married — you be a part of somebody’s life for that long — I feel like you just take that responsibility and do that. And I feel like every woman in the world should do that.”
Though the on/off couple eventually called it quits in 2014, French is still clearly close to Khloé’s family. Her sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner were spotted outside of his dressing room at the concert, and French even Instagrammed a photo of the two girls with their pals Justine Skye and Gigi Hadid with the caption, “#YoungLegends.”
It certainly seems like things are cool between the former couple, whose relationship played out on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, now. “Khloe never loved French Montana. He was a rebound and someone she had a good time with,” a source told ET. “The first guy she really liked after Lamar was James Harden.”
That being said, Khloe and James’ relationship is “taking a back seat” while she tends to Lamar.
