Julia Fox says she was ‘delusional’ when dating Kanye West
Julia Fox claims she dated Kanye West to ‘get him off Kim Kardashian’s case’ in bizarre video – but admits she was ‘delusional to think she could help embattled star’
Julia Fox has claimed her short-lived romance with disgraced Kanye West stemmed from a desire to help him move on from ex-wife Kim Kardashian.
The Uncut Gems actress, 32, who dated West, 45, for less than two months beginning in January this year, said she was ‘delusional’ to have ever thought she could help the rapper but ‘wanted to get him off Kim’s case.’
West recently returned to Twitter after drawing widespread backlash over multiple anti-Semitic rants across social media last month, sending his career and net worth into freefall.
‘First of all, the man was being normal around me and not only that but the Kardashians, when I had a fashion line 10 years ago they actually bought our clothes and sold them in their stores and so I’ve always had a love for Kim especially and even Kourtney especially and like all of them pretty much.
‘But, no, like the big three: Khloé, Kim, Kourtney. Those are my girls. Anyway, so by the time me and him got together, it was like, he hadn’t been doing anything, you know, like out there yet.
‘He, the only thing he had done was change the name in the song and said like, “Come back to me, Kimberly.” That was like really the only thing when we met.
‘But I remember just being like, ugh, he was texting me, I wasn’t really answering. I was like I don’t really want to talk [with] this celebrity again. You know what I mean?
‘Nothing ever comes of it. They’re kind of boring. They’re not what you think they’re going to be like. But he kept going and going and he was like you have bad text etiquette and I was like, “Oh my god, Kanye’s yelling at me. What do I do?”‘
‘But then I had this thought: I was like, “Oh my god, maybe I can get him off of Kim’s case. Maybe I can distract him, just get him to like me and I knew if anyone can do it, it’s me because when I set my mind to something, I do it.’
‘And I will say that that month that we spent together, he wasn’t on Twitter first of all. He wasn’t on any forms of social media. He didn’t even talk about his relationship.
