Julia Fox says she dated Kanye to 'distract him' so he wouldn't bother Kim K

Amid the wild rollercoaster of drama involving Kim Kardashian, Pete Davidson and Kanye West, there's Julia Fox. The "Uncut Gems" star dated West for about six weeks in early 2022, when he was divorcing Kardashian and pursuing her then-boyfriend Davidson on social media. Now, she's pouring tea on their relationship in light of the rapper's anti-Semitic comments. In a TikTok video posted on Nov. 21, Foxx claimed she dated West to give his ex-wife a break.

In the video, Fox responded to a follower asking why she dated "a misogynist and anti-Semite known for his violence," saying she plans to write about Weiss in her upcoming book Te’s story—or, as she calls it, her “masterpiece”—but decided not to tell us now for free. "First of all, this guy is normal around me," she said, before explaining that she developed a crush on Kardashian and her sisters, Kourtney and Khloe, because they used to stock her clothing line at Dash stores.

When West first pursued her, Fox claims the only thing he did at the time was invite Kardashian back to him at a concert in December. As he kept texting Fox, she had an interesting idea. "I was like, 'Oh my gosh. Maybe I can get him off Kim's case. Maybe I can distract him... and make him like me," she said. “I knew if anyone could do it, it was me, because when I set my mind to something, that’s what I do.”

Fox explained that West was not on social media at the time and barely talked about his relationship with Kardashian while they were dating. Instead, they talked about "clothes, weird thoughts, future plans, education, childhood" and other normal couple stuff. "This is really beautiful, guys," she said. “As soon as he started tweeting, I was out.”

Shortly after splitting from Fox, West's relationship with his ex-wife soured dramatically, with the pair mocking Kardashian in a new song and attacking her on social media after a disagreement over their children's education. He apologized for his emotional outburst during an interview with "Good Morning America" ​​in September. "This is the mother of my children," he said. “I apologize for any stress I caused, even in situations where I was frustrated... I need this person to be the least stressed, best, sound mind, calmest person possible to raise these kids. "

However, just a month after this interview, West's anti-Semitic comments surfaced, causing him to lose landmark deals with Adidas and Balenciaga that made him a billionaire. Kardashian spoke out against his comments, and Foxx ended her TikTok staunchly saying she stood with the Jewish community: "That being said, I stand with the Jewish community. Period."
