Julia Fox Says She Dated Kanye West To ‘Distract’ Him From Kim Kardashian

Julia Fox definitely has her causes.

The “Uncut Gems” actor had quite a bit to say when sharing why she determined to this point Ye shortly after his cut up from ex-wife Kim Kardashian. Fox was with the artist previously often known as Kanye West for lower than two months early this yr.

Her choice to talk her thoughts was sparked by a remark that one TikTook follower left her: “I just wish you weren’t dating a famously violent misogynist and antisemite.”

In response, Fox posted a video to the social media platform explaining that she dated the rapper to “distract” him from Kardashian. Fox insisted that he was behaving “normal” after they first met.

“The only thing he had done was change the name in the song and said, like, ‘Come back to me, Kimberly,’” Fox mentioned on TikTook. She was presumably referring to a December 2021 incident by which Ye modified the lyrics to his music “Runaway” at a Los Angeles present to say: “I need you to run right back, baby, more specifically, Kimberly.”

But the earliest inklings of what would later flip into Ye’s full-on harassment of his ex didn’t deter Fox from getting concerned with him. In reality, she mentioned she determined to this point Ye for Kardashian’s sake.

“But then I had this thought: I was like, ‘Oh, my God, maybe I can get him off of Kim’s case,” Fox mentioned. “Maybe I can distract him, just get him to like me and I knew if anyone can do it, it’s me.’”

Fox mentioned that after they first bought collectively her plan labored, and “he wasn’t on any forms of social media” and “didn’t even talk about his relationship.”

Fox claims this solely lasted for a few month, and “the moment he started tweeting” about his ex she was “out.”

“I wanted to help him,” she mentioned. “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.”

She ended her TikTook by addressing the “antisemite” little bit of her follower’s criticism.

“I don’t want to reduce his whole career to his really bad moments,” Fox mentioned. “But that being said, I stand with the Jewish community. Period.”

Ye was locked out of Twitter in October after a string of antisemitic posts, which he tried to justify with extra discriminatory opinions about Jews. His account has since been unlocked.
