Were rappers Trina (real name Katrina Laverne Taylor) and French Montana (real name Karim Kharbouch) ever REALLY a couple? According to the Miami-bred rapper, the answer is no. In an interview with Mara the Socialite, Trina denies that the two were ever an item. She says:

I was not in a relationship, I have not been in a relationship in a very long time, and me and the person that I was around [French], we was friends. Me, I’m a person that believes in building a very solid, strong friendship before a relationship.

And that’s just the end of that – I never came in the public and said this is my man, I’m in a relationship, and vice versa.
