According to Julia Fox, she only dated Kanye West at the beginning of the year in order to keep him away from Kim Kardashian during their messy divorce.
“I had this thought, and I was like, ‘Oh my God. Maybe I can get him off of Kim’s case,’” said the actress in a TikTok video shared on Monday following being accused of “dating a famously violent misogynist and anti-Semite.”
“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 32-year-old “Uncut Gems” star revealed that she has long admired reality star Kourtney Kardashian and her sisters Khloé and Kourtney Kardashian. The model, who dated West for two months in January and February, also insisted that she didn’t react to the Grammy winner’s initial romantic advances. To keep him away from Kim, she allegedly began dating the rapper after the 45-year-old called her out and even shouted at her for having poor manners.
In February, the Playboy model and West called it quits after almost six weeks of dating. Later the same month, she described herself as a “No. 1 hustler” and emphasized via Instagram Stories that she “wasn’t in love with that man.” Fox continued by stating that she is “proud” of herself for quitting at the “first sign of a red flag” in an interview with ES Magazine in September.
