Julia Fox claims she dated Kanye West just so he would stop bothering Kim Kardashian

Julia Fox claims she dated Kanye West just so he would stop bothering Kim Kardashian

It turns out Fox was taking one for the team when she dated the controversial rapper.

Julia Fox is clearing the air about her romance with controversial rapper Kanye West.

The 'Donda' rapper has since made multiple antisemitic comments on social media, 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, as well as several other controversies in recent months.

The Uncut Gems actor took to TikTok to give her 1.3 million followers the low down on her relationship with West, who now prefers to be called Ye.

Fox dropped several bombshells while responding to a comment on one of her other videos that said: "I just wish you weren’t dating a famously violent misogynist and antisemite."

Fox said: "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."

"The man was being normal around me," she added.

Fox then claimed that she hooked up with West to try to distract him from harassing his ex-wife Kim Kardashian.

"I had this thought. I was like, ‘Oh my god, maybe I can get him off Kim’s case. Maybe I can distract him, like just get him to like me," she said.

"I knew if anyone can do it, it’s me. When I set my mind to something, I do it."

The model and actor also revealed that one of her primary goals in the short romance was to try and help West battle his demons, but that did not go according to plan.

"I realised pretty quickly that he wasn’t gonna take my help," she said, before taking a swipe at the person who left the comment.

"I sounded almost as dumb as you guys saying I should have done something to stop him. But I know, I was delusional, I thought I could help him."

She did go on to highlight that, when the celeb couple dated, West was yet to go on any controversial rants.

"He hadn’t been doing anything out there yet. I will say, that month we spent together, he wasn’t on Twitter," Fox said in the clip, which was uploaded to social media on Monday (November 21).

Fox added that West didn't use much social media while they were together, adding that they 'only really talked about clothes', 'weird ideas and plans for the future'.

But it was social media that eventually saw her walk out the door.

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

The Uncut Gems star added that she doesn't want to see his career be remembered by his 'really bad moments'.

"That being said, I stand with the Jewish community," she added.
