French Montana says the public's perception of his girlfriend Khloe Kardashian doesn't chime with the reality.

The 'Ain't Worried About Nothin' rapper has been seeing Khloe, 30, for several weeks, and he insists she is very different to how she is portrayed in reality TV show 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians'.

He told the New York Daily News newspaper: ''That's my Koko. She's a real cool down to earth person. I don't think a lot of people get to meet her to find that out.''

Montana, 29, also vehemently refuted suggestions he is dating Khloe as a means of boosting his own profile.

He said: ''I don't look at it like that. She's the funniest person ever.''

Montana also defended the rest of the Kardashian clan, saying: ''When you're in the limelight and you're in that kind of position in life you're always going to have haters.

''I feel like once you get to know [the Kardashians], they're really like (some) of the dopest people ever.''

Khloe makes a guest appearance in Montana's latest music video 'Don't Panic', which debuted on Wednesday [13.08.14].

Montana said: ''It's the first video she ever did and it got a little spike.''
