There is a reason for every goodbye. Evidently, Khloe Kardashian's divorce from Lamar Odom may not be final yet, but it really is the end of the line for the basketball athlete as she was seen sporting a necklace which reads "Karim" in Arabic or her new beau French Montana's real name. Khloe and French may remain mysterious and continue to refuse to address their relationship, but their actions definitely speak louder than words.

Exactly, who is French Montana? Here are five things you have to know.

He is Morrocan

French is Morrocan. He was born in Rabat, Morocco on Nov 9, 1984. He lived with his parents for 13 years in Casablanca, which is the largest city in Morocco. His hobbies when he was growing up include playing football and rapping. Here's a YouTube video of French talking about a number of things and explaining his nationality.

He speaks several languages

In his latest album Excuse My French, he worked with Rick Ross, Macklemore and Khloe's future brother-in-law Kanye West.

He was once accused of ripping off a charity event

According to the New York Daily News, French ,along with rappers Fabolous and Meek Mill as well as reality VH1 star Olivia Longott, was paid to perform at a charity event in an effort to put an end to violence. John Ruiz, who works as the chief executive officer of the said foundation hosting the charity, revealed that French and the rest of them fled as soon as they got paid worth $48,500. It was only Meek Mill who reportedly returned the money.

He is married with one kid

French married Deen Kharbouch in 2007. Two years later, Deen gave birth to their first son Kruz. In 2012, French and Deen separated. Before French started seeing Khloe, he was in an on-and-off relationship with rapper Trina. When French moved to Los Angeles to work on his second album, his relationship with Trina withered, and then came Khloe.

Khloe and French kept mum on the topic of their romantic lives. Khloe wearing French's name "Karim" in Arabic could really mean something. Is it truly goodbye for Lamar?
