Julia Fox was launched into the limelight following her romance with rap icon, Kanye West. Though the pair’s controversial relationship didn’t last long, Julia continues to be on headlines. Recently, Julia revealed more details about her whirlwind romance with Ye.
The Uncut Gems actress opened up about the criticism she’s received after being linked to the Donda musician in an recent interview with The New York Times. Fox told the outlet, “It’s not real, It’s only happening on the internet. I’m not actively engaging with it. I don’t feel it. I’m still 1,000 percent me.” She added,
Nothing’s changed, except, I will say, having been around Kanye was like a crash course on how to be famous.”
When the actress was asked if they were “exclusive,” Fox said, “I don’t think so,” before denying they dated for attention. She added, “I mean, there were definitely elements of it that were real.” The star also brushed off claims she interviewed to be West’s girlfriend as “ridiculous.”
She slammed speculations that she signed a nondisclosure agreement. As for whether she and West were officially “boyfriend” and “girlfriend,” Fox clarified,
“I don’t think those words ever came out of my mouth, actually. It definitely felt like I was his girlfriend. But it also felt like I was being cast in the role of his girlfriend — and he was casting me. He was the orchestrator of it all. It really did feel like a movie.”
Fox also called Ye, “the ultimate stunt queen,” and displayed confidence in Kanye as she said she’s not worried West will expose the specifics of their romance. Fox added, “I don’t think that he would want to open that door with me,” She seemingly threated retaliation when she said,
“If you come for me, I’m going to come for you. And I’m really good at coming for people. I just go straight for the jugular. I don’t think he would be dumb enough to do that.”
Fox said she met West when she was “ready to re-enter society” after welcoming son Valentino in 2020. She thanked Ye for the “priceless exposure” he gave her, specifically in the fashion industry. Still, Fox is hopeful that she’ll “eventually surpass the Kanye narrative.”
