Bad Boy Records’ French Montana recently took fans a bit closer into his personal life after dishing on his relationship with estranged wife Deen Kharbouch.
According to reports, Montana’s current divorce proceedings have prevented him from being more of a fulltime father.
“The bad thing about it? Just going through my divorce. Things like that. Going through things like why I can’t see my son when I want to. Things like that. That’s the bad thing. Cause when you make it to a certain level it’s like everything ain’t gon’ be everything you want. You gotta go through the bullsh*t.” (“Big Boy’s Neighborhood”)
Along with warning reality star Khloé Kardashian of the danger which came with Montana, French’s ex-wife revealed how the rapper forgot about his family after blowing up back in March.
“She has to be careful,” Deen exclusively tells the new issue of Life & Style, on stands now. “Things are not what they seem.” Deen tells the mag she and French used to have a happy marriage and she helped support his career. “He and I worked together to put him where he is,” she explains to Life & Style. But as French started to become successful in 2012, he took off, leaving her and their son, Kruz, now 4, behind. “As soon as he popped, it was as if Kruz and I didn’t exist,” she charges. “He practically abandoned us.” Even now, Deen shares, “Sometimes we won’t hear from him for two or three months.” (Life & Style)
Back in January 2013, French talked about raising his three-year-old.
Although he has the means to make a comfortable life for his 3-year-old son, Montana has no intention of babying him. “Kids who have everything grow up thinking that everybody owes them,” he says. “I want him to grow up like me. I want him to struggle a little so he knows how to be a man. I’ve got to leave him in the desert, and when he gets older, he’ll understand why his father left him like that.” (USA Today)
In 2012, Montana spoke on caring for a son despite having issues with his ex-girlfriend.
“It happens to the best,” French said when he appeared on Wednesday’s “RapFix Live.” “As long as I take care of my family, make sure my son is good. I feel like that’s a weight off my shoulder, you know, I could sleep good,” he told “RapFix” host Sway Calloway about the split. “It’s just kinda like you’re moving and you’re not the same person, ’cause you’re so busy doing what you’re doing. You get conflicts.” (MTV)
