After telling Billboard that he wanted to "capitalize" on his reality star girlfriend's fame, French, 29, told Access Hollywood Live in an interview on Tuesday, Aug.19, that his comment was taken out of context. "I was so mad about that," he said. "If I'm with somebody, I'm not with them for that reason."
In fact, the "Don't Panic" rapper, who first stepped out with Kardashian, 30, this past April, admitted he has a love-hate relationship with reality TV.
"I hate being on camera … Sometimes you're not ready for it and it's too much pressure, but I [also] love it. But I hate how it happened… all the commotion," he said in reference to Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
The CEO of Cocaine City Records went on to gush that there's nothing he wouldn't do for his lady love. "She supports me with everything I do. When it comes to her career, I don't think about it. If she needs me to do something, I do it," he told Access Hollywood.
The rapper credits his near-death experience for acknowledging every move he makes. "After you go through something like that, you ain't making no mistakes," he said of the time he survived a gunshot to the head in 2003 after leaving a New York recording studio. "You calculate every move you do. I just feel like it was karma. When you do negative stuff in your life, it always comes back to you. I feel like that's what it was."
