Julia Fox claims she only dated Kanye West to ‘distract him’ from Kim Kardashian

Uncut Gems actress and model Julia Fox opened up about her relationship with controversial rapper Kanye West.

Julia created a video in response to a comment on an earlier post on TikTok which read: "I wish you weren't dating a famously violent misogynist and anti-Semite".

In the video, she claimed she only dated Kanye to "distract him" from his ex-wife Kim Kardashian, who he had publicly trolled multiple times in the past and throughout his short-lived relationship with Julia.

"I had this thought, and I was like, 'Oh my God. Maybe I can get him off of Kim’s case'," Julia explained.

"Like, 'Maybe I can distract him, like, 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."

Julia admitted that at the start of their whirlwind romance, the pair "only talked about clothes" and Kanye didn't have any social media accounts.

She told her followers: "We only talked about clothes and weird ideas and plans for the future and our hopes and dreams for childhood and education and, like, it was really beautiful, guys."

Julia confessed that Kanye's attack on Kim and her then-boyfriend comedian Pete Davidson was where she drew the line.

"The moment he started tweeting, I was out", she added.

"I'd already been like 'Dude, I'm not going to stick around for this s**t and also I realised pretty quickly that he wasn't going to take my help".

Despite Kanye's comments and behaviour, Julia confirmed that she still "deeply respects" the rapper and refuses to "reduce his whole career to his really bad moments".

She concluded her video, saying: "It didn’t work 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 s–t on that. I don’t want to reduce his whole career to his really bad moments."

Julia also revealed she's working on a tell-all book, in which she was originally going to describe her reasons for dating Kanye, but instead opted to tell her fans "for free".
