Is Julia Fox being USED by Kanye? Rapper dating actress to 'get under Kim's skin'
'It’s a desperate play for attention. There’s no other explanation when he chooses … [Fox] to go public with,' an insider said
Kanye West is reportedly not over his estranged wife Kim Kardashian yet. Sources have said the ‘Donda’ singer is “clearly hurting” and his apparent relationship with Julia Fox is “a ploy to get under ex Kim Kardashian’s skin”. Insiders claimed to Page Six that his romance with the 31-year-old actress is the result of Kim moving on with Pete Davidson.
An insider said, “It’s a desperate play for attention. There’s no other explanation when he chooses … [Fox] to go public with.” Another one stated that West is deeply hurt after the ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star began a relationship with the 28-year-old comedian. Recently West had begged Kim to “run back to” him but also went on dates with numerous models. “He publicly fights for his family back, and then he’s linked to all these different girls. It’s very strange,” the insider added.
Who is Kanye West’s 'personal' photographer? Rapper documenting his dates with Julia Fox
The first pictures of West and Fox were taken by the former’s personal photographer when the two went on dates in Miami and New York in early January 2022. The pair was then snapped for a performance-art photoshoot for the magazine Interview. The ‘No Sudden Move’ star told the magazine that she “met Ye in Miami on New Year’s Eve and it was an instant connection.”
She continued, “His energy is so fun to be around. He had me and my friends laughing, dancing, and smiling all night. We decided to keep the energy going and fly back to New York City to see ‘Slave Play’. After the play we chose to do dinner at Carbone which is one of my favorite restaurants. Obviously,” before stating: “After dinner Ye had a surprise for me. I mean, I’m still in shock. Ye had an entire hotel suite full of clothes. It was every girl’s dream come true. It felt like a real Cinderella moment. I don’t know how he did it, or how he got all of it there in time. But I was so surprised. Like, who does things like this on a second date? Or any date! Everything with us has been so organic.”
“I don’t know where things are headed but if this is any indication of the future I’m loving the ride,” Fox added. But according to several sources, it’s just a repetition of the time when West and Kim were getting close. At the time, the rapper often used to style the socialite.
Meanwhile, quite ironically a few weeks ago, Fox had called herself a “die-hard, OG” fan of the Kardashians. During the December 17 episode of her podcast, ‘Forbidden Fruits,’ the ‘Uncut Gems’ actress asked her co-host Niki Takesh, “Can we talk about the Kim and Kanye divorce? Wait, can we talk about Kim and Pete Davidson, though?” She also said that she's “gonna miss ‘Keeping Up,’” whose last episode aired on E! in June 2021. The famous family is now planning to launch another series named ‘The Kardashians’ on Hulu soon.
Fox claimed on her podcast that “I have been watching ‘Keeping Up’ since it first came out in 2007 when watching it was embarrassing,” before adding, “I wanted them to be my family… You feel like you know them. It’s like you are happy for them when something good happens to them.”
