Actress Julia Fox has been backtracking on her comments suggesting that her rumored ex-boyfriend Kanye West is "harmless" and that he "would not hurt a fly". The 'Uncut Gems' star said in her latest TMZ interview, "I would like to point out that I had not seen the latest Instagram posts at the time of this video."

“Believe it or not, I have a life and a son, and I don’t have google alerts for this man!” the 32-year old actress said. Fox dated the 44-year old legendary rapper briefly this year after Kanye's ex-wife Kim Kardashian filed for divorce in February 2021.

On March 2, 2022, the SKIMS founder was declared single legally. Since October 2021, Kim Kardashian has been dating comedian Pete Davidson. During the third week of March, a TMZ reporter asked Julia Fox if she felt that Kim and her new beau Pete "should be worried" regarding their safety. This was in connection to Kanye's behavior online. Fox said, "No! No, no, no. Kanye’s harmless. I just think that’s his artistic creative expression."

She further stated, "I know it’s aggressive, but I think if it really came down to it, I don’t think Kanye would hurt a fly."

In the Instagram post that has been deleted since, Fox conveniently claimed that she was completely unaware of Kanye's behavior on Instagram. This included the racial slur that was directed towards Trevor Noah.



Speaking of Kanye's music video of the track 'Eazy', the actress alleged that she thought the reporter indicated the skinned monkey was a claymation version of Kim Kardashian's current love interest Pete Davidson. As per TMZ, Fox said, "I thought this question was in reference to the music video. Yeah, I could just not answer questions but then it would be ‘Julia is mad she salty’ etc and I’m not!” She added, “It’s a real catch 22 so please stop F’n asking me!”

She continued, "I wish I had the answers, but I do not. I would like to remain an Indie Queen. The mainstream life isn’t for me."
