Despite recent photos of the two looking close, Amber Rose has denied that she is dating French Montana. The model took to Instagram to address rumors pertaining to her love life and the extent of her relationship with the rapper.

On Tuesday, Rose shared a photo of herself and the “MC4” rapper smiling at each other during a fun night out. Although the photo looks like the two could have an intimate connection, Rose explained that she and French Montana care for each other in a strictly platonic way.

“When ur friends genuinely love you because ur personality is amazing and ur heart is even more beautiful but the internet sexualizes every male friend you have,” she captioned the photo along with a heart eyes emoji.

The rapper seemed to feel the same because he liked Rose’s post explaining their friendship. Prior to that post, Rose shared a photo of the two posing for the camera, referring to the rapper as her “Bruva 4 life.”

Rumors begin to swirl about the two being more than friends when they were photographed hanging out at the beach in Miami and frolicking in the water over the weekend, according to Daily Mail. During their beach session, the two greeted one another with a hug and kiss on the cheek.

They then proceeded to head into the water and were all smiles while splashing around in the ocean. At one point, French Montana placed his arm the model and Rose could later be seen playfully holding on to the rapper’s fist.

Although the two may have seemed cozy, Rose was later seen hugging a mystery, muscular gentleman who looked pleased to be spending time with the model.

This is not the first time Rose and French Montana have been romantically linked to one another. In 2014, it was rumored that the two were dating, however, TMZ later reported that the model was actually seeing the rapper’s brother Zack.

French Montana and Rose were photographed going to several clubs and outings together but that was only because the rapper is close to his brother and the two tend to party at the same places together. On her part, Rose was trying to keep her romance quiet due to her ongoing custody battle with ex-husband Wiz Khalifa at the time.

Prior to being linked to the rapper, Rose has dated her “Dancing With the Stars” partner Val Chmerkovskiy and rapper Machine Gun Kelly. The Instagram model was also linked to NBA player James Harden, however, the reported romance was short lived.

French Montana also has himself quite the record in the dating department. Following his highly publicized romance with “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Khloe Kardashian, the rapper later moved on to “Rich Kids of Beverly Hills” star Dorothy Wang and also dated Iggy Azalea for a short time.

Despite years of speculation, Rose and French Montana have always insisted that they are friends. Considering their dating histories, friendship may be all they need from one another. It’s clear neither party needs help in the romance department.
