Julia Fox claims she only dated Kanye West earlier this year to keep him away from Kim Kardashian during their contentious divorce.
“I was just going to write about it in my book, and have y’all buy it, but I’ll just tell you guys for free,” Fox said in a clip posted Monday morning in response to a comment asking why she would date a “violent misogynist and anti-Semite.”
The model, who dated West from January to February, claimed she did not respond to West’s initial romantic advances.
“He was texting me. I wasn’t really answering,” Fox recalled. “I was like, ‘I don’t really want to hook up with a celebrity again.’ Like, nothing ever comes of it. … They’re kinda boring, like, they’re not what you think they’re going to be like.”
Julia went on to say that when she realized Kanye wasn’t going away, she realized she might be doing his ex-wife a favor by answering.
“Then I had this thought,” she explained. “I was like, ‘Oh my god, maybe I can get him off Kim’s case and get him to like me.’ And I knew if anyone could do it, it would be me because when I set my mind to something I do it.”
“Like, ‘Maybe I can distract him, like, just get him to like me,’” Fox added. “And I knew if anyone can do it, it’s me, because when I set my mind to something, I do it.”
The “Uncut Gems” star, 32, revealed that she has long Kim Kardashian and her sisters Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian.
“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.”
Fox further stated that Kanye “didn’t talk about his relationship” and “wasn’t on Twitter” at the time they started dating.
“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.”
She explained, “I had already been like, ‘Dude, I’m not gonna stick around for this s–t.’”
While she initially thought she could help the “Stronger” rapper, she “realized pretty quickly that he wasn’t gonna take [any] help.”
Fox called herself “delusional,” noting, “I sounded almost as dumb as you guys saying that I should have done something to stop him. Like, what?
“It didn’t work and now we’re here but that being said, I really deeply respect the man as an artist.”
