Julia Fox claims she dated Kanye West to ‘distract him’ from marital split

‘I thought I could get him off Kim’s case!’ Julia Fox claims she dated Kanye West to ‘distract him’ from marital split but admits she was ‘delusional to think she could help him’

Julia Fox has claimed her short-lived romance with disgraced Kanye West stemmed from a desire to help him move on from ex-wife Kim Kardashian.

The Uncut Gems actress, 32, who dated West, 45, for less than two months beginning in January this year, said she was ‘delusional’ to have ever thought she could help the rapper but ‘wanted to get him off Kim’s case.’

West recently returned to Twitter after drawing widespread backlash over multiple anti-Semitic rants across social media last month, sending his career and net worth into freefall.

Taking to TikTok on Monday, Julia spoke to a fan who asked her why she dated ‘a famously violent misogynist and anti-Semite’ – with the star adding she was in a relationship with West before his career downfall.

Julia said: ‘OK, since — I was just going to write about it in my book and then have y’all buy it, but I’ll just tell you guys for free. 

‘First of all, the man was being normal around me and not only that but the Kardashians, when I had a fashion line 10 years ago they actually bought our clothes and sold them in their stores and so I’ve always had a love for Kim especially and even Kourtney especially and like all of them pretty much. 

‘But, no, like the big three: Khloé, Kim, Kourtney. Those are my girls. Anyway, so by the time me and him got together, it was like, he hadn’t been doing anything, you know, like out there yet.

She said: 'But then I had this thought: I was like, "Oh my god, maybe I can get him off of Kim’s case. Maybe I can distract him, just get him to like me and I knew if anyone can do it, it’s me because when I set my mind to something, I do it' (pictured January 2022)

‘He, the only thing he had done was change the name in the song and said like, “Come back to me, Kimberly.” That was like really the only thing when we met.

‘But I remember just being like, ugh, he was texting me, I wasn’t really answering. I was like I don’t really want to talk [with] this celebrity again. You know what I mean? 

‘Nothing ever comes of it. They’re kind of boring. They’re not what you think they’re going to be like. But he kept going and going and he was like you have bad text etiquette and I was like, “Oh my god, Kanye’s yelling at me. What do I do?”‘

‘And I will say that that month that we spent together, he wasn’t on Twitter first of all. He wasn’t on any forms of social media. He didn’t even talk about his relationship.

‘We only really talked about clothes and weird ideas and plans for the future and our hopes and dreams for childhood and education. And it was really beautiful, guys.

‘The moment he started tweeting, I was out… I’d already been like, ‘Dude, I’m not going to stick around for this s**t.’ 

‘And also, I realized pretty quickly that he wasn’t going to take my help. I was like, “I want to help him. I want to help him.” 

‘I sounded almost as dumb as you guys, saying that I should’ve done something to stop him from saying — like, what? But anyway, I was delusional. I thought I could help him. 

‘Anyway it didn’t work and now we’re here. But that being said, really, deeply respect the man as an artist. I don’t want to s**t on that. I don’t want to reduce his whole career to his really bad moments, you know?’ 

Kim married Kanye in Florence, Italy in 2014, and welcomed four children with him: daughters North, nine, Chicago, four, and sons Saint, six, and Psalm, three. She ultimately filed to end the marriage in February 2021.

He and Julia confirmed their split after West shared a slew of Instagram posts declaring ‘I wish my wife were with me’ and pining for his family to be reunited.   

Fox, who appeared with Adam Sandler in 2019’s Uncut Gems, previously described her romance with West as ‘organic’ and ‘natural,’ and off to a strong beginning.

‘Time will tell, you’ll just see,’ she said. ‘Obviously, it looks a certain way, but people don’t know the conversations happening behind the scenes, and you know, I’ve been around.’

Fox said it was ‘unfortunate’ that people have compared her to Kardashian, saying their only similarities have been fashionable ones.
