The hip hop rumor mill has been swirling all year with talk that Bad Boy rapper and NYC native French Montana is coupled up with thicky-thick Miami rapstress Trina.
Despite being photographed hanging out together on numerous occasions, both Trina and French Montana have danced around confirming their relationship status, but Trina finally decided to clear it all up in a recent interview with Mara The Socialite of 4UMF.
Check out what she had to say below:
On French Montana dating rumors:
“I’m not a couple with nobody. French Montana is an amazing person; he’s a great person, he’s been a great inspiration to me since he came into my life as far as working, business, career. He showed me some different things that honestly, I didn’t really get the last couple of years of my career. I was at a very pivotal moment, like a very bad space and him being a guy, he’s not a guy that listens to a Trina music, you know. So for me to go into the studio to work with him, to do a record for him, and he’s like really putting out something new, and I’m like, ‘ummm, I don’t know. I’m just not really motivated right now.’ And he was like, ‘I don’t understand what that means.’ And then one of my girls was like, ‘play him your new stuff.’ And I was like, ‘no, no, no, no.’ And he begged me, and I did, and he was impressed.
It was just a different type of chemistry, and once I played it, he was like, ‘yo, you need to put this out now.’ It gave me like a different sense of reassurance, and I like that about him. He’s a very positive person, he’s a great, fun person to be around, and that’s what I love about him. I guess when people see you with somebody, they automatically think that you’re together. If we were together, if we become together, I think you guys would know.”
On what she’s looking for in a relationship:
I’m not looking for a boyfriend, I’m not looking for somebody to date – I’m not a dater, I never was good at dating, but if I decide to get into something, then you’ll know. I’m looking for a serious situation. A husband, a family, a life beyond everything that I’ve lived in my life, and that’s where I am in my life where that’s concerned.
Hmmm. So it sounds like maybe French just wasn’t trying to step up to the plate and make Trina wifey…..we still wouldn’t be surprised to hear them give it another shot in the near future though.
Trina also addressed the slander that she received from fans and critics after doing a tribute to her fellow female rapstress Nicki Minaj during the BMI Awards in NYC last month, complete with a blonde wig and Nicki-esque get up.
