Julia Fox’s Shocking Reveal – She Dated Kanye West Only To Get Him Off Kim Kardashian’s Back
The actress explained the real reason she dated Kanye West in a TikTok video and finally cleared the air about where she stands with Kim Kardashian.
Actress and model Julia Fox has finally opened up about her short-lived relationship with Kanye West. On Monday, she took to TikTok after a user commented, “I just wish you weren’t dating a famously violent misogynist and anti-semite.”
That’s when the fashion muse broke her silence on her highly publicized yet brief relationship with Kanye West in January, the beginning of West’s strange antics since his split with wife Kim Kardashian.
Why Did Julia Fox Decide to Date Kanye?
Julia said in her TikTok video, “I was just going to write about it in my book…but I’ll just tell you guys for free. The man was being normal around me…” She detailed the time in Kanye’s life when he met her, and says that “he hadn’t been doing anything out there yet,” when they first crossed paths romantically.
Apparently, West, 45 pursued Fox, 32 first. She had just rose to fame after her critically acclaimed role in 2019’s Uncut Gems alongside Adam Sandler.

He kept “going and going,” the actress says. He even encouraged Julia Fox to reply saying she had ‘bad text etiquette.’ Fox says that initially, she was reluctant, fearing that talking to a celebrity as famous as Kanye West would be boring.
But then she says she had sudden change of heart and decided that she would attempt to get him to like her, and that would finally get him to leave Kim Kardashian alone. Fox says that she’s a very determined person, and at the time, she believed that whatever she set her mind to, she could do it.
Julia Fox Made An Attempt to Help Kanye
Maybe Fox was onto something? She says that during the month that they spent together, West wasn’t on “Twitter or any forms of social media” and he didn’t even talk about his relationship with her. “We only talked about clothes and weird ideas and plans and hopes and dreams for the future and our childhood and education.” Fox says that it was a beautiful time.
But soon enough, Kanye started tweeting again and that’s when she decided that she was not interested in the relationship anymore.
Fox insists that she was merely trying to help, and soon enough she realized that Kanye was not interested in her help, although that was the basis of her forming the relationship with him. “I was delusional and thought that I could help him,” she said. “But that didn’t work and now we’re here.”
Before she ended her TikTok, Fox made a point to credit Kanye West’s reputation as an artist, and said that she doesn’t want to “sh** on that,” and to reduce his whole career to his bad moments, but she expressed her solidarity with the Jewish community.
Did Julia Fox Feud With Kim Kardashian?
While the media has taken the opportunity to pit Julia Fox and Kanye’s ex-wife Kim Kardashian against one another, Julia decided to clear up the misconceptions and said some surprising things about her relationship with the famous family.
“When I had a fashion line ten years ago, they actually bought our clothes and sold them in their stores. So I’ve always had a love for Kim, especially. Even Kourtney especially…all of them…”
How Did Julia Fox and Kanye West Meet?
Luckily, Julia Fox was not shy to detail almost every aspect of her brief romance with Kanye. In January 2022, she self-published an article for Interview Magazine which caused a media frenzy.
In the article, titled, “Date Night,” Fox says that she met Kanye in Miami on New Year’s Eve and the pair shared an “instant connection.” She detailed that the rappers energy was “so fun to be around, and he had me and my friends laughing, dancing and smiling all night.”
In typical Kanye fashion, nothing about the date was ordinary. On their first dinner date, Kanye directed an entire photoshoot of Julia at the restaurant as people dined. Afterward, Kanye surprised Julia with an entire hotel suite full of clothes! Julia described the gesture as “a real Cinderella moment.”
Never Judge a Book By It’s Cover
Many were quick to say that Julia Fox ‘stole’ Kanye West from Kim Kardashian and used Kanye for fame, but it’s important to always take a step back before passing judgement.
Julia’s chance to clear the air has been highly overdue, and she wasn’t afraid to point out her vulnerabilities as well as the respect she has for Kim Kardashian and the rest of the Kardashians. Oftentimes, the media loves to pit two women against one another, and the truth is often never reported. While we think we know what’s going on behind the scenes, whether it be in a celebrity relationship or in our everyday lives, we truly never know.
