French Montana and Khloe Kardashian either sunk to a new low -- or were totally brilliant -- in their use of a panhandler to shield them from cameras this weekend.
You gotta watch this video of them leaving Crustacean -- as Khloe darts for her SUV, she stops to give the panhandler some money ... she even takes a photo with him.
Generous, right? Well, watch what happens in the background as she mugs with the guy.
Unclear WHY these two are still hiding -- WE ALL KNOW YOU'RE BANGING! At least the homeless guy got paid.
