American actress Julie Fox, has explained she dated rapper Kanye West to get his mind off his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian.
She stated this in a video on her TikTok account while reacting to a follower’s comment which reads: “I just wish you weren’t dating a famously violent misogynist and anti-Semite”.
But Fox in her response explained Ye was normal for the period they were together as she was able to successfully keep him off social media for one month.
She said they had time to themselves as they chatted about clothes, weird ideas, plans for the future and their hopes and dreams for childhood and education.
The “Uncut Gems” star noted it was a beautiful experience especially as the “Donda” rapper didn’t even talk about his relationship but everything changed the moment he somehow started tweeting.
Fox said: “First of all, the man was being normal around me and not only that but the Kardashians; when I had a fashion line ten years ago they actually bought our clothes and sold them in their stores. So, I’ve always had like a love for Kim.
“So, by the time me and him (Kanye) got together, it was like, he hadn’t been doing anything, you know, out there yet.
“But I remember just being like ‘Ugh!’ He was texting me, I wasn’t really answering, I was like ‘I don’t really want to date a celebrity again, nothing ever comes of it, they kinda boring.
“They are not what you think they are going to be like.’ But he kept going and going and he is like ‘You have 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, like maybe I can distract him, like just get him to like me.’
“I was like if anyone can do it, it’s me, because when I set my mind to something, I do it. And I will say that that month that we spent together, he wasn’t on Twitter, he wasn’t on any form of social media.
“He didn’t even talk about his relationship, we only really talked about clothes and like weird ideas and plans for the future and our hopes and dreams for childhood and education, it was really beautiful guys.
“The moment he started tweeting, I was out and that’s the thing. It’s like the media reported on our relationship like a week after it happened or something, so during that week I think you guys thought that we were together, but we weren’t.
“I’d already been like ‘Dude I’m not gonna stick around for this sh*t.’ And also I realised pretty quickly that he wasn’t going to take my help. I sounded almost as dumb as you guys saying that I should have done something to stop him from saying… like what?”
However, the 32-year-old media personality further claimed she was ‘delusional’ to have thought she could help West, pitching tent with the Jewish community amid the rapper’s travails.
“But anyway, I was delusional, I thought I could help him but it didn’t work and now we are here. But that said, I really deeply respect the man as an artist, don’t want to sh*t on that. I don’t want to reduce his whole career to his really bad moments. But that said, I stand with the Jewish community, period,” she added.
