Is it bad/weird that I’m (24/F) still friends with my ex (24/M)?

I’m not intentionally painting a one-sided picture. I feel as though I wouldn’t have developed feelings for the guy I am now dating if my ex had not treated me the way he did, considering I’d been friends with my current boyfriend for the entirety of my and my ex’s relationship without developing any romantic feelings for the first four and a half years that we were dating. Of course it doesn’t excuse the fact that I eventually did have those feelings, but I’ve realized that, acknowledged it, and apologized for it. The reasons I feel uncomfortable with being friends with him have to do with him and the fact that I never received an apology for his behavior and I’m worried that he is still trying to manipulate me.
