Drake is now with Julia Fox as his divorce with Kim Kardashian carries on. The couple seems happy, but they both had lives before meeting each other. It turns out that one of Ye’s oldest frenemies got to Fox first.
Julia Fox is embroiled in one of hip-most hop’s acrimonious feuds. According to sources, Fox, 31, has informed West, 44, about her “Hotline Fling” with Drake, who lavished her with gifts including two Birkin bags, and Ye is not pleased.
Page Six has revealed that the actress had a hot-and-heavy covert romance with Drake a year before she began dating his onetime archenemy Kanye West. According to reports, the “Marvin’s Room” rapper, 35, originally contacted Fox via Instagram DM to express his gratitude for her role in the 2019 Adam Sandler thriller “Uncut Gems.”
Insiders believe Fox reconnected with Drake on the social media app after her relationship with her longtime partner, Peter Artemiev, fell apart later that year. According to sources, they met up in February 2020 in New York, and the Toronto-born performer took Fox and a friend to the Bowery Hotel for cocktails.
Page Six was told Drake then paid a visit to Fox at work the next day at Bloomingdale’s, where she was doing a promotional stint. The enamored couple’s whirlwind affair continued when Fox travelled to Los Angeles a few days after Valentine’s Day, where Drake presented her with two of the iconic Birkin bags, which range in price from $20,000 to $500,000.
Fox is said to have stayed at Drake’s massive 50,000-square-foot house, but her trip was cut short because to the COVID-19 pandemic. Fox then restarted her relationship with pilot Artemiev, with whom she had a 1-year-old son, putting her rapper romance behind her.
Of course, after meeting in Miami on New Year’s Eve, Fox, who has since split with her baby daddy once more, began dating West. It’s his first public relationship since his eight-year marriage to Kim Kardashian ended in divorce. He and Fox were seen in identical clothes at the haute couture presentations in Paris this week.
The feud intensified when rapper Pusha T disclosed Drake has a son and accused him of being a “deadbeat” father on a single on an album produced by West. Drake has recently admitted the child’s existence, calling him Adonis, but denying that he is a “deadbeat.”
Drake then claimed that West was the one who told Pusha about Drake’s son, which West denies. At the end of 2021, they battled for hip-hop supremacy when West released “Donda,” which debuted with 313,000 album sales. Then, with 595,300 album copies, Drake’s “Certified Lover Boy” became the year’s top-debuting album.
However, the once-enmity couple appeared to have buried the hatchet recently, performing together at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum’s “Free Larry Hoover” fundraiser concert on Dec. 9. Drake and Fox’s representatives declined to comment.
