Khloe Kardashian and French Montana are going through a lot of effort to try and and show people they aren't banging ... which TOTALLY means they are.
KK and FM hit up Hooray Henry's in West Hollywood Wednesday night, but took ridiculous steps to exit separately. First it was Khloe, blowing off our photog's questions and heading into her SUV.
Then, as if he was waiting for the precise moment when Khloe got inside her car, French emerged from the club -- skirting our questions as he walked to his car ... where Scott Disick was dutifully waiting inside.
Funny side note ... watch as Scott yells at French when French tries to get in the driver's seat. You can barely see Scott behind French's MASSIVE bodyguards.
As TMZ first reported, the pair spent last weekend together -- Khloe helped French look for houses in LA, before the pair spent Saturday night at a strip club in Phoenix.
As the old saying goes -- where there's smoke ... there's banging.
