Actress and film director Julia Fox is making headlines after apparently establishing a relationship with Kanye West, which has left many fans wondering about the rapper’s supposed new partner.
Reports of a relationship between Fox, 31, and West, 44, first circulated in late December when TMZ shared photos of the two together at a restaurant in Miami, Florida. At the time, the publication noted that sources with knowledge of the relationship claimed that it is “nothing serious” and that West is “enjoying the single life.”
However, a source later claimed, on January 1, 2022, to Page Six that Fox and West are dating. “Both have just come out of their previous relationships, and have helped each other recover immensely,” the source said.
The alleged couple appeared to confirm reports of a relationship this week, after they were photographed together in New York City on Jan. 4, when they were seen leaving a performance of the Tony Award-nominated show, Slave Play, at the August Wilson Theater. The couple and their friends not only had the opportunity to talk to the cast after the show but also went to dinner together at Greenwich Village, People reported.
A source close to West also spoke to People about Fox and claimed the rapper was “excited” that she was there. “Julia stayed for the whole subsequent talk. She was very supportive and hung out and seemed very happy to be with him,” the source added.
Fox has become known as a model, and at 31 has appeared in numerous photoshoots, including a recent one in Paper magazine with comedian Pete Davidson. She has also produced her own photography books and, in 2017, presented her own artistic program, RIP Julia Fox. She is also a director and producer and has made her own short film, Fantasy Girls.
Fox debuted as an actress in the 2019 thriller, Uncut Gems. She later starred in three films released in 2020 and in Steven Soderbergh’s film No Sudden Move, which was released in 2021.
However, it has been expressed that action is not its only area of interest. “I feel like when you’re someone creative, you can express it through so many mediums,” he told Paper in 2019.
“Acting only turns out to be what it is now, but it’s also been fashion, it’s been art, it’s been photography, it’s been writing, it’s been direction,” he added.
He also stressed that one of his dreams is to direct a film or series for Netflix, for which he hopes to write his own script.
“People who have read them think they’re really good,” Fox told Paper about directing and writing his own script. “So I hope that when I get an agent I will meet someone who believes in me in that sense. That’s the dream: to have a TV series on Netflix or something.”
According to Fox, she and her ex are not on good terms, as the actor recently called Atremiev for his parenting habits and claimed he was a “useless father.”
Aside from her career, Fox also has a one-year-old son, Valentino, who she shares with her ex-husband, Peter Artemiev.
