On Air With Ryan Seacrest

Julia Fox and Ye attend the Kenzo Fall/Winter 2022/2023 show as part of Paris Fashion Week on January 23, 2022 in Paris, France.

Julia Fox is opening up about her short-lived romance with Kanye West.  In a new interview with ES Magazine, the Uncut Gems actress told the publication about their one-month-long relationship from January to February this year.

When asked if the relationship was just a ploy to remain in the limelight, Fox, 32, says chuckling, “That’s such bulls—. He got my number through a mutual friend, period.”

In terms of a romantic spark between them, there was “a good amount,” she says. “I was just going day by day and seeing where it went. It was just like, he still wants to hang out with me today, let’s do it. And then real life set in and the lifestyle wasn’t sustainable. I couldn’t fly away once a week. And I tapped out at the first sign of a red flag.”

When asked what exactly the red flag with Ye was, Fox took a moment to think about her answer: “The unresolved issues that he was dealing with. It just seems like he had a lot to work on, and I just don’t have time for it, or energy. I don’t have the bandwidth or emotional capacity for it. I’m proud of myself for that. Pre-Valentino Julia would have definitely stuck it out and been there for longer.”

Fox shares one-year-old son Valentino with her ex-husband, Peter Artemiev. She told the publication that motherhood completely changed her “overgrown teenager” lifestyle. Growing up in New York City, Fox developed a heroin addiction at 17 years old and nearly overdosed. Until Valentino was born at the beginning of 2021, “I went from going to sleep whenever I want, waking up when – ever I want, doing whatever I want, to, ‘Oh, no. That’s over. Wake up at seven, strict schedules, feedings.’ But you just love your kid so much that you do it. And you’re happy to, in a weird way.”

Being a single mother brought Fox into her “f— men era, or f— the patriarchy, rather. Because I know men are victims of the patriarchy as well. But I’ve realized since having Valentino that women really do get the s— end of the stick.”

She added that men (famous men included) approach her all the time, but there’s sometihng in her head that tells her “don’t do it. Because there’s more for me. If I go down that route, I know where that goes: into submission, into surveillance, into jealousy and insecurity. I want to shine. And I know that most relationships I’ve gotten into, men have dimmed my shine, big time. I’m so susceptible to that, and I’m old enough now where I cannot repeat my mistakes over and over.” She says she isn’t currently dating because “there’s just nothing for me there. Maybe in the future, if I want companionship.”
