French Montana says he and ex Khloé Kardashian “are always going to be friends.”

The rapper, 34, opened up about his past romance with the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 34, in an interview with Haute Living. “I feel like we had a real dope relationship — there was no bad blood, nobody did something to somebody that we couldn’t come back from,” he revealed to the outlet.

The star went on to share that the “love” he shared with Khloé “was real.”

“When the love was like that, it’s always going to be like that,” he said. “Friendship after a relationship is something that’s real hard to do, and I’m glad we’ve been able to do it.”

The rapper recently made an appearance at Khloé’s older sister Kourtney Kardashian‘s 40th birthday party.

Their April reunion sparked rumors that the pair may have rekindled their relationship, but a source previously told PEOPLE “they are not dating.”

“She is friendly with French, but they are not dating,” the source said.

Khloé and French parted ways in 2014 after a little under a year together.
