    Montana's gargantuan new home.

Rapper French Montana has an eye on his ex after purchasing Selena Gomez's former six-bedroom home in Hidden Hills, CA -- just down the way from former flame Khlo Kardashian (and her sister Kim), TMZ reports.

The Moroccan-born Montana has been recording mixtapes and providing guest verses on tracks since the mid-2000s, although he's released only one studio album: 2013's "Excuse My French," whose single "All Day" was nominated for two Grammys. A notorious exotic-animal enthusiast, Montana has owned two tigers and currently owns a pet monkey named Julius Caesar.

Montana scored a deal for his new pad: Gomez listed her home in the star-studded neighborhood in November for $4.5 million, but the rapper spent just $3.3 million to buy the 7,700-square-foot property.

Inside the 3-acre compound is every amenity a pampered rap superstar might desire, including parking for 10 cars, a home theater, and a large gym.

The master bedroom is currently painted purple (a Gomez touch?), and we're sure Montana will have his own take on the expansive space. With a fireplace and bay room, there's plenty of room to kick back. For further relaxation, there's a jaw-dropping spa with enough columns and arches to fill an entire Roman bathhouse.
