(AllHipHop News) Veronica Clinton, the mother of the late Lionel “Chinx” Pickens, recently expressed her disappointment that her son’s label head French Montana has not reached out to her since the rapper was murdered in 2015.
French was a guest on The Wendy Williams Show this week, and the Coke Boys leader was asked about Clinton’s complaints.
“I love Chinx’s mom, but I think me and her never had a relationship,” said French. “I never spoke to her when he was alive. I might have spoke to her one time. The second time I spoke to her was at the funeral.”
Clinton did mention that she and French spoke at Chinx’s memorial service.
“I asked French, ‘Why did y’all do that to my child?’ He said, ‘Because he wouldn’t listen,’” claimed Clinton. “I told French, ‘You’re not his father, but I am his mother.’ And there were no more words after that.”
French gave Wendy a slightly different version of that conversation.
“She asked me, ‘What’s going on with my son?’ I said, ‘I can’t… I don’t know,'” recalled French. “I was like, ‘I told him to stay out the streets. Like don’t be driving around 4 in the morning just you by yourself or you with another person.’ She said, ‘You’re not his father.’ I said, ‘Okay.’ That was it.”
The Bronx rhymer also stated he never made any money off of Chinx. French then made the point that he helped his protégé build a better life for himself and his family.
“I think I did my job,” added French.
