Actress Julia Fox has claimed she only dated controversial rapper Kanye West earlier this year to get him away from Kim Kardashian amid their contentious divorce.
Fox made the claim in a video she shared on TikTok on Monday, Nov. 21, in response to accusations of “dating a misogynist and anti-Semite with a reputation for violence.”
“I had this thought, and I was like, ‘Oh my God. Maybe I can get him out of the Kim thing.
“Like, ‘Maybe I can distract him, like, just make him like me. And I knew if anyone could do it, it was me, because when I had something on my mind, I do.
Fox also revealed that she’s been a longtime fan of the reality TV star and sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Khloé Kardashian.
“When I had a fashion line 10 years ago, they would buy our clothes and resell them in their [Dash] stores, so I always had, like, a love for Kim.
“Like, the big three. Khloé, Kim, Kourtney, these are my girls.
The model, who dated West from January to February, also claimed not to have responded to the Grammy winner’s early romantic advances.
“He was texting me. I wasn’t really replying.
“I was like, ‘I don’t really want to reconnect with a celebrity.’ Like, nothing ever comes of it…. They’re kinda boring, like, they’re not what you think they’re going to be.
Fox further alleged that the 45-year-old called her and even yelled at her for having bad etiquette, which is when she decided to date the rapper to get him away from. Kim, 42 years old.
The actress also said that Kanye “wasn’t on Twitter” at the time and “didn’t talk about his relationship.”
“We only talked about clothes and weird ideas and plans for the future and our childhood and upbringing hopes and dreams and, like, it was really beautiful, guys.”
The actress also claimed that when Kanye started targeting Kim and her then-boyfriend Pete Davidson on social media, she decided she “was out.”
“I had already said, ‘Man, I’m not going to stay for this. “”
Fox also told her followers that she initially thought she could help Kanye, but “realized pretty quickly that he wasn’t going to take it. [any] to help.”
She also said she was “delusional” to have had a relationship with Kanye. The model added;
“I sounded almost as stupid as you saying I should have done something to stop him. Like what?
“It didn’t work out and now we’re here, but that being said, I really deeply respect the man as an artist,” she continued. “I don’t want to shit on it. I don’t want to reduce his whole career to his very bad moments.
