Khloe Kardashian and French Montana are on a break, eight months after the reality star started dating the rapper, Us Weekly reported.
A source told the publication: “The relationship got too heavy and Khloe needed to take a step back.”
Another insider says French Montana, 29, was too “needy” for Khloe Kardashian, 30.

Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner “did not approve and told Khloe all the time”, an insider said. Previous reports also claimed that sister Kim Kardashian and stepdad Bruce Jenner were “very skeptical” of French Montana and worried he was using Khloe for fame.
Khloe Kardashian herself didn’t seem too concerned about French Montana’s motives, though, even after he admitted he wanted to “capitalize” on the attention. French Montana later said his words had been taken out of context and gushed that he’d do anything for his lady love.
“She supports me with everything I do,” French Montana told Access Hollywood Live in August.
“When it comes to her career, I don’t think about it. If she needs me to do something, I do it.”
In recent interview with Billboard Magazine, rapper French Montana admitted he wanted to take advantage of the spotlight dating Khloe Kardashian brought him.
French Montana’s remarks sparked outrage among Kardashian fans after he said: “I want to capitalize on it.”
“I’ll get a fan base from everywhere. I just hope I’ll be able to connect with everything that’s going on.”

French Montana’s comments, which came a few days after Khloe Kardashian appeared in his Don’t Panic music video, caused fans to lash out, especially considering Kardashian has dealt publicly with the painful divorce from Lamar Odom on the most recent season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
However, Khloe Kardashian doesn’t seem offended by French Montana’s comments.
On Sunday, Khloe Kardashian tweeted: “It’s amusing to me that Y’all think I don’t see it. I was the first one to see it. I just don’t care.”
