Rapper Trina made an appearance on Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club” this morning where she responded to recent comments made by her long-rumored ex-boyfriend, fellow hip-hop star French Montana. Montana assumed a relationship with reality star Khloe Kardashian earlier this year; and during a recent appearance on “The Wendy Williams Show,” he was asked about his breakup with Kardashian and his previous relationship with Trina. While proclaiming Kardashian to be his “baby,” Montana then seemed to go out of his way to downplay his relationship with Trina as “not that serious.”
Trina gave her side to “The Breakfast Club.”
“We really was not in a relationship. Let’s be clear about that. I never told him ‘I was your girl.’ And there’s a lot of reasons, I guess now we see why,” Trina shared.
She then seemed to direct her annoyance towards Montana himself.
“You just got a lot of growing up to do,” she said. “I could come up here and expose you and bash you, but I’m so much better than that.”
Trina also revealed that it has been about two years exactly since she met Montana on what she described as a “crazy” day in her life; Sean “Diddy” Combs’ birthday. She said that she and Montana struck up a friendship two years ago on Diddy’s birthday and things evolved from there.
“I think a relationship starts with a friendship,” she said. “We were on the same page but different pages. He was going through a divorce or whatever — that’s one of the reasons why I never got into a relationship with him. I was there with [him] while he was going through that. I’m the one that told you to step up to the plate as a man and make the right choice.
“When you came to Miami, you never slept in a hotel because you stayed in my house every single time,” Trina said, explaining how involved she was in Montana’s life. “The friend that I have the keys to your house still right now today, that kind of friend. The friend that everything you post on Instagram, your whole house — how it looks, I did that. The friend sends and imports furniture from Miami to New York, I did that. Let’s be clear on the ‘friend’ thing, since you want to be so messy about it. Because we were friends.”
“I’ve never talked about a relationship I was in, if I said I was a relationship,” Trina explained. “I’m always going to be the person that’s gonna be mature, regardless. I’ve taken the rap for almost everything and I really don’t say nothing — because I could really make these dudes look crazy.”
“First and foremost, nobody besides New York ever paid you no attention until me,” she added. “Let’s be clear.”
Trina also shared that Montana never told her he was seeing Kardashian.
“I found out like the rest of the world. It was all over the Internet, all over my Twitter and Instagram–everything,” Trina revealed. “It’s a little surprising when you’re living with somebody that they’re running around with somebody else.”
The 35-year old reiterated that she held no ill will towards Montana, but wanted everyone to know that they weren’t just a casual fling and she was always there with him as his career gained momentum.
“I flew the monkey here to New York City from Ft. Lauderdale,” Trina added, referencing Montana’s famous pet, Julius Caesar.
“I’m not going to bash you,” Trina said, again implying that she was addressing Montana himself. “To me–you were a great person, you were a cool person. We were friends and I got so much respect for you. But the way you do stuff–it’s disrespectful. Out of respect, you don’t handle situations like that.”
“I was there with you from the bottom to the grind, helping you get to where you need to be,” she said. “Helping you telling you this was good. I was there. I don’t feel no bad ways about you. Just don’t be a donkey. Right now, you’re on some real donkey s–t.”
“I never came to a radio station and said you were my man and I didn’t expect you to say I was your girl,” Trina added. “But don’t make it seem like I was just hanging on a coattail and I had the wrong idea about the relationship. Never. We was all clear on everything–me, you and everybody in our circle.”
