Khloe Kardashian and French Montana have been spotted hanging all over from New York to Los Angeles in recent weeks … so does that mean the two are an item?

E! News’ Ken Baker called in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest on Wednesday morning to set the record straight.

“She is definitely 100% hanging out with French Montana, but the question everyone keeps asking is ‘Is this a rebound or is this real?’” Ken explains. “The best answer I can give you is it’s a ‘real rebound.’ People are going to call it a rebound because it’s the first person she’s hanging out with since the split from Lamar [Odom], so everyone wants to call it that. I don’t think Khloe even really knows. Everyone I talk to says Khloe is for the first time feeling really really happy. She had just a rough 2013, and she’s just been building herself up since then.

Ken — whose new book, How I Got Skinny, Famous, and Fell Madly in Love is available now here — also adds that Khloe has been wearing a necklace with her new guy’s name in Arabic, “so I’d say she’s pretty serious about him.”
