Julia Fox has spoken out about the criticism she's facing for her past relationship with Kanye West.
Not only has Uncut Gems star Julia Fox apparently not been getting any jobs since her brief stint dating Kanye West, but she's continued to face barrels of online hate.
Why? The 'Praise God' rapper has since made antisemitic comments online, was spotted in a 'White Lives Matter' T-shirt at Paris Fashion Week and has spread a conspiracy theory about the death of George Floyd, among many other controversies.
A TikToker commented on one of Fox's posts stating: "I just wish you weren't dating a famously violent misogynist and antisemite."
While she was 'just going to write about it in [her] book' and have everyone buy it, Fox has responded to the backlash and filled fans in about her relationship with West for free.
In the video, Fox justifies that 'first of all' Ye was 'being normal around [her]'.
She continues: "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. So I've always had a love for Kim especially and even Kourtney - all of them pretty much. But you know, the big three: Khloe, 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 out there yet, the only thing he'd done was change the name in the song and said, 'Come back to me Kimberly'.
"That was really the only thing when we met."
Fox alleges their relationship first started when Ye texted her and 'kept going and going,' 'yelled' at her and accused her of having 'bad text etiquette'.
"But then I had this thought and I was like, 'Oh my god maybe I can get him off of Kim's case. Maybe I can distract him and get him to like me'.
"And I knew, I was like anyone can do it, and it's me, because when I set my mind to something I do it," the actor says.
Fox also justifies that during the month she and Ye spent together, the musician 'wasn't on Twitter' or 'any forms of social media'.
"He didn't even really talk about his relationship. We only really talked about clothes, and weird ideas, plans for the future and our hopes and dreams for childhood and education and it was really beautiful, guys.
"The moment he started tweeting I was out," she says.
Fox claims her and Ye weren't together as long as the media thought they were either, because reports came out a week later than when events actually unravelled.
She resolved: "I'd already been like dude, I'm not going to stick around for this s**t. And I realised pretty quickly he wasn't going to take my help. I sound almost as dumb as you guys.
"[...] That being said, I really deeply respect the man as an artist. I don't want to s**t on that, I don't want to reduce his whole career to his really bad moments you know? But that being said, I stand with the Jewish community, period."
