Kanye has made his first public appearance since being hospitalized for exhaustion. Friend and collaborator French Montana has delivered an update on Kanye’s condition: He’s “doing great.” The hospitalization occurred following a series of bizarre public outbursts on his Saint Pablo Tour, which has since been canceled through the New Year.

“He’s doing great. He’s a, he’s a strong guy,” Montana told ET. “He’s been through a lot and you know, this is just another hurdle in the way, you know what I’m saying? I mean I love everything he been doing, man. I feel like he’s speaking the truth, you know what I’m saying? I’m with him, that’s my big brother.”

West and Montana have something else in common: They’ve both enjoyed relationships with Kardashian sisters. West is married to Kim and Montana dated her sister Khloe Kardashian in 2014. ET asked whether he’s still in touch with West’s extended family of in-laws.

“Yeah, I mean I love them all,” he said. “They’re all my friends, forever—for life. That’s my family, you know, forever.”
