The rumored couple had been hanging tough for over a year before French switched gears and started dating Khloé Kardashian out of the blue. To add insult to injury, French recently visited The Wendy Williams Show and claimed he never dated Trina because he was in the middle of a divorce and wasn’t in the “mental space to be in a relationship,” but called Khloé “the best” and said she’d always “be my baby forever.”
Over the past few months, Trina had been pretty mum about the situation until she told KFoxx back in September that she was the one who introduced the Kardashians to French at a Kanye West concert. Now she’s spilling all the tea to The Breakfast Club about what went down between her and French, confirming they were “friends” but he was always at her crib and she had the keys to his. She added she doesn’t totally blame Khloé entirely but did call her “disrespectful.”
Check out what she had to say below:
On French Montana Downplaying Trina by Saying They Were Only Having Fun
Fun? He’s just having fun. I don’t know what that means, ‘I’m just having fun?’ Is it just like a ‘fun girl,’ kind of? Just doing something for the moment?
We really was not in a relationship, let’s be clear about that. I never told him that I was your girl. And there’s a lot of reasons. I guess now we can see why because [he] just has a lot of growing up to do. I can come up here and expose you and bash you, but I’m so much better than that. But I will say this:
We were friends. And as being ‘friends,’ today as we speak, makes two years I would’ve known you since we were friends. The day I met you was this day, of two years ago. November 4, Puff’s birthday, we can not forget. It was the most craziest day ever of my entire life. It was just a crazy day.
Charlamagne: Would you remember this if it wasn’t Puff’s birthday or did he mean that much to you?
No, definitely [because of] Puff’s birthday. We were on a roller coaster, I would say, it was a wild birthday.
On “Taking” French In & Helping Him Become Who He Is Today (also, rants about the term “friend”)
It was good, we were friends. A relationship to me starts with a friendship. I think me and him kind of were on the same page but [still] different pages, kind of. He had a situation, he was going through a divorce or whatever, that was one of reasons why I never really got into a relationship with him. I wanted that [divorce] to be cleared and it was a lot of back and forth but I was there with you every single day and step of the way while you were going through that.
[I was] beyond supportive. I’m the one who told you to step up to the plate like a man and make the right choice. I was a friend. I was just in your life. And when you say friend, friend not like, ‘I’m the girl you met at the club, I’m the one you took home and we were smashing,’ not that kind of friend. The friend that when you came to Miami you never slept in a hotel because you stayed at my house every single time. The friend that I have the keys to your house still right now today, that kind of friend.
The friend that everything you post on your Instagram, your whole house, how it looks, I did that. The friend that sends, imports furniture from Miami to New York, I did that. That kind of friend. So let’s be clear on the whole ‘friend’ thing since you want to be so messy about it. Because we were friends.
I’ve never talked [bad] about a relationship that I was in. If I said it was a relationship, I’m always going to be the person that will be mature.
I’ve taken the rap for almost everything and I just don’t say nothing [but] I could really make these dudes look crazy because first and foremost, nobody besides New York even paid [French] attention until me. Let’s be clear.
I was there with you from the bottom of the grind. Helping you get to where you need to be. I don’t feel no bad ways about you. Just don’t be a donkey. Because right now you on some real donkey sh*t and that’s just not cool to me because I’m not gonna trash you. I’ma just state the facts.
On Taking His Monkey In:
Cthagod: Did the monkey stay there too?
Trina: I flew the monkey there to New York City with him from Ft. Lauderdale.
Angela: Dang, that’s ride or die! I’m not bringing nobody’s monkey nowhere.
On Finding Out About Khloé and How They Became Friends
I found out like the rest of the world. It was all over the Internet, my Twitter, my Instagram, my everything! It’s a little surprising when you’re living with somebody and they’re running around with somebody else.
I was cool with [Khloé] way before- I met her way before I met all of them. Like years, years, years ago back in the ‘let’s go out and party [and] get high’ fun days.
On Not Blaming Khloé (entirely)
I don’t blame [Khloé] for that situation. Everybody is grown. You make your choice, you wanna do it. I don’t think she was held against her will to talk to him or date him and pull him away. People go when they wanna go.[…]What I’m saying is, I’m not going to bash you, to me you a great person, you a cool person, we were friends, I got so much respect for you. It’s just the way you do stuff is sometimes disrespectful. Out of respect, you don’t handle situations like that. Because as a friend, I’ve held you down and Lord knows the stuff I can say about you can be overwhelming. But I’ma let you live though.
On If She Is Still Friends with Kim
The last time I saw her was at a Kanye concert. And I’m just like, this situation is between your sister and this other guy (French Montana). Like I really don’t care. If I see her and if she speaks, I speak! I don’t have a problem with [Kim] but I wouldn’t say like ‘friend.’ I’m not going to text her or call her on the phone or that kind of thing, like opposed to before.
With Kim, she was someone that was a very amazing person and I was in breakup situation when I met her and she was the one who kind of pulled me out of that. So just to be in this awkward space, it just feels weird.
On Not Being a “Side Chick”
I don’t play the side chick role. I do not play that. Despite the way it may look. I’m cool with you, I’m your friend so long as there is nobody else around. We don’t have an open situation, there are no girls coming in and out the house. I don’t play all that. We’re going to be cordial, we’re going to be adults and if I feel like this is strong enough for us to move forward, or to be committed then hmm, I don’t know. I feel like I took on a whole extra baggage being there for [French.] That was like a wear and tear. I was there from when [he] started and until when it ended.
On “F*ck Love” (Her Single) and Not Being “Anti-Love”
I’m not anti-love. The song is not really about ‘Oh I don’t wanna be in love because I hate it,’ because I I love ‘love.’ The song is like, don’t try me. I’m very on my own, independent, I’ve always been. I don’t know how to not be independent. I don’t know how to back down and feel I’m just gonna lay down and watch soap operas while somebody do anything for me. I don’t know how to do that.
I’m very submissive. Extremely submissive. I think people get the whole situation [twisted] because of the record and the music and they feel this is my life. My life is not what’s on the records, my life is very realistic. There is cooking, there’s cleaning, there is washing clothes and cleaning up after your nasty self when you leave the shoes, drawers, everything all over the place.
On Being Engaged To Lil’ Wayne In The Past
Wayne is great person. He is a great guy as a man. I think when I was in the situation with Wayne so many years ago, I think we were both so young. I didn’t even think that we were in anything. We were friends, and we just hung out and we good but it’s like, there was a proposal, about to get married it was just so much happening. I was like, ‘This can’t be real.’ We were so young, I just felt all confused. I didn’t want to talk about it. It was just too much for me… but Wayne, I just have a lot of respect for him. We didn’t end on bad terms. We were just young and right now, to this day, we’re still friends.
On Why She Never Had A Baby by Wayne and Refuses to Be a Baby Mama
I’m not everybody else. That’s the reason why. I don’t want to be sitting around being somebody’s ‘baby mama,’ with the baby mama drama with no family. I have too many friends that have that life. That’s not my lifestyle. It needs to be a husband, a family and a forever after or there will be no baby, no none of that. I’m just not into that. I’m not the girl for that. I could’ve had several babies if that’s the case.
On Dating a Regular Guy for 5 Years and What She Likes in a Guy
Yeah, I dated a regular guy before. Not a drug dealer. A regular guy is a guy that has a job, a business or an entrepreneur and that’s doing their thing and is bringing home money. I don’t care. As long as you have a job, you’re not a bum.
I like attentiveness. I like the gifts and all that, that’s cool, but if you not around and you not there- I don’t like that. I dated regular. I dated a regular guy for 5 years. A great relationship. A regular job. Real estate. A business guy. Very regular, low key. It did not work out with us because I think, honestly, I was so into what I was doing with my life, we were so good and I got so hot and busy, he got so boring to me. It’s like the guy that don’t drink or don’t smoke, in the house… but my lifestyle was so elaborate that I could not be in the house at 8 o’clock and you just sitting there and I’m just ready to turn up. I was too young for that, too tied down, and I feel like it was my fault for that.
On Kenyon Martin and Being told She was “Too Good to be True”
Great situation, again, here we go with the guys- things happen. And you just think great- you know what it is with me with this situation? I’ve been told, it’s almost like, this is too good to be true. I can’t believe you’re going to be cooking when I get home, I can’t believe you’re going to be in the house, I can’t believe in none of these things. I just can’t believe it. And now that [I’m] there in the witness of it, I think you[men] get intimidated.
It’s like, you expected me to be turned up to 100 and doing a bunch of stuff and I’m not on that. So it’s like, ‘Oh, this is not the person that I thought it was going to be, like the freak of the week, that’s not the girl.’ So I think that sort of messes it up.
On who she’d f-ck, marry or kill between Kenyon Martin, Lil’ Wayne and French Montana
F*ck, Marry, Kill: F*ck Kenyon Martin, Marry Wayne, Kill the ‘other guy’ (French Montana).
Well go right ahead and kick the tea kettle over Trina!
