Julia Fox, the actress who dated Ye, formerly known as Kanye West a month after her breakup with Kim Kardashian, she said she was dating the rapper to get him to leave his ex-wife alone.
In a TikTok posted on Monday in response to a commentary criticizing Fox for his relationship with “a famously violent misogynist and antisemite,” Fox said “the man was being normal around me,” then they met and started talking.
She said Ye had been texting her for a while, but she wasn’t interested in “hooking up with a celebrity again,” so she didn’t give him much attention.
“But then I had this thought,” Fox recalled. “Maybe I could get him off Kim’s case. Maybe I can distract him, like, just get him to like me.”
She continued: “If anyone can do it, it’s me, because when I set my mind to something, I do it.”
“I’ve always had a love for Kim,” Fox said after explaining that the Kardashians bought items from her clothing line to sell in their stores years ago.
“By the time me and him got together, he hadn’t been doing anything out there yet,” Fox explained to her TikTok followers. “The only thing he had done was change the name in the song that said ‘Come back to me, Kimberly,'” she said.
Speaking of Fox, she took to TikTok to express her thoughts about the blatant racism occurring in the fashion industry. The Italian actress and model posted a video on the video-sharing application, claiming that white models have a much easier time at work than a model with a darker complexion. And she says that’s evident just by looking at how many white women, those who can be as short as 5 feet 2 can still reserve parades just based on nepotism.
“We all roll our eyes,” Julia said. “We all know the nepotism, we’re all, like, over it.” She continued by asking her followers how many times they had seen Black, Asian, or Brown women of a shorter size walking the runway. “I’ll wait,” she added before asserting that there aren’t any.
“And why is it that women of color have to be extraordinary to be in the running, but white girls get away with being f****g mediocre? Most of you are mediocre — yeah.” Julia later responded to a string of comments under her post, clarifying that she doesn’t have a problem with smaller-sized models, as long as every other short person was given the same opportunities.
