Julia Fox has insisted that her new romance with Kanye West is not a PR stunt, adding that her friends think their relationship ‘makes so much sense’.

When she spoke to acting colleague Niki Takesh on their podcast Forbidden Fruits, Julia, 31, shut down speculation that her and the 44-year-old rapper West’s hot and heavy romance was only for media attention.

When Takesh remarked that some of her friends have asked if Fox and West’s hookups were just a stunt, Julia replied, ‘There are always people who think every celebrity scandal is a setup. I personally do not do that ‘.

She added, according to People magazine: “I want the people who know both of us personally, like all the people we have in common, like friends in common, to have written to me like, ‘Oh my God, it does so much meaning ”. ‘

But despite being photographed and locking his lips on several dates, Fox insisted: ‘Because right now I’m just living in the moment and I have no expectations – there are no labels, none of that. It’s just people who make each other feel better. ‘

Julia was also quick to talk about her penchant for Pete Davidson, who is now dating West’s ex Kim Kardashian. She said she ‘loved’ her and Davidson’s 2019 recording for Paper magazine.

Kanye and the actress appear to have met each other for the first time on New Year’s Eve and have since packed up on the PDA during several public outings.

Two days later, they had a date in Miami at the Italian restaurant Carbone, which is apparently the hitmaker’s favorite.

At the time, a source told Page Six that the dinner date was not “something serious,” but the two were back for more later in the week when they attended the acclaimed Slave Play on Broadway in New York City.

They followed up on their evening at the theater with another dinner at Carbone, this time at the venue in New York.

Following reports that his ex Kim sees the ‘romance’ as an ‘attempt to make her jealous’, Ye is said to be documenting his many dates with his own media team.

Sources told Page Six that Kanye brought his own photographer with him when he and Julia, 31, watched the Broadway production Slave Play together Tuesday night.

He was also seen with his own snapper on a dinner date with the actress in Miami.

Another insider told the site that Kanye has taken the photographers with him as part of a larger project documenting his life.

They explained: ‘He has decided to take matters into his own hands. He has an incredible life, he meets the craziest people on the planet. He realized he might need the album of his life. ‘

However, sources claimed earlier in the week that Kim believes this is ‘a good thing’.

The SKIMS mogul is said to believe that Julia being a Kardashian supporter could mean positive things to their co-parenting relationship, according to a TMZ report.

Sources close to Kim told the publication that she is happy to see the Donda artist smile again and hope to see him with a good person.

Meanwhile, Kim, 41, and SNL comedian Pete, 28, appear to be going from strength to strength after embarking on a romance after Kim hosted Saturday Night Live in October.

Kim filed for divorce from Kanye in February 2020, and the couple share four children together, as they are currently co-parents; North, eight, Saint, six, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two.

It comes after Julie detailed her whirlwind romance with Kanye after the couple announced their romance.

In a new profile about the rising star from The Cut, the actress admitted that it ‘all happens so fast’ and added: ‘I take the universe and the current and see where it takes me’, before adding, ‘… where it takes us all. ‘

She also received praise from her friend Cat Marnell, who said: ‘She is a legitimate sorceress. She’s Michael Jordan’s vixen … She’s devastating, like a hurricane. ‘

Julia wrote a 217-word story on her first two dates with the rapper, which included a trip to New York City.

She describes their ‘instant connection’ after the meeting in Miami on New Year’s Eve to Interview Magazine and described the star’s generosity and ‘fun’ energy.

The article also featured a series of photos documenting their epic evening in the city, from the many kisses they shared, to the hotel suite full of clothes Kanye had surprised Julia with.

‘He made me and my friends laugh, dance and smile all night. We decided to keep the energy going and fly back to New York City to see Slave Play, ‘she whispered.

The Uncut Gems star continued: ‘Yes the plane landed at six o’clock and the show was at seven o’clock and he was there in TIME. I was impressed. After the play, we chose to have dinner at Carbone, which is one of my favorite restaurants. ‘

“At the restaurant, Ye directed an entire photoshoot for me while people were eating,” she added. ‘After dinner you had a surprise for me. I mean, I’m still in shock. You had a whole hotel suite full of clothes. ‘

She said the move was ‘every girl’s dream come true’ and ‘felt like a real Cinderella moment’.

‘I do not know how he did it or how he got it all on time. But I was so surprised. Like, who does such a thing on another date? Or any date! ‘ she wondered.

Fox concluded his post: ‘Everything with us has been so organic. I do not know where things are going, but if this is any indication of the future, I love the trip. ‘

Away from her thriving career, Julia shares an 11-month-old son, Valentino, with her private pilot estranged husband Peter Artemiev, whom she married in 2018.

Last month, Julia took to Instagram to shout out her estranged husband, accusing him of turning his back on her and their son, calling him a “dead beat alcoholic father.”

Julia ripped her ex off in a series of recent Instagram Stories posts, shared a photo of Artemiev, and wrote, ‘Have you seen this deadbeat dad?’ and said he is found ‘at most strip clubs, Lucien, Paul’s [Baby Grand], Casablanca, the streets, etc. ‘

Fox said it was ‘traumatic’ for her to review screenshots, videos and photos related to her allegations about Artemiev, including a clip in which he called her names, according to Page Six.

“I can not even do it anymore,” said Fox, who welcomed son Valentino with Artemiev in February 2021. “I just do not want my son to be outraged as he feels his father was absent or loved. and party more than him … this man left me with a 5 month old and a dog and a home and ALL the BILLS. That’s wrong !!! It’s not fair !!! ‘

In a separate post, a follower told Fox that her acting career suffered during the public vitriol. She said in response: ‘It’s MY SON’s LIFE we’re talking about – I do not care about my’ acting career ” ‘.

She added: ‘My son loves his father. I have accepted that his father refuses to present and I have made peace with it, but I am sure it will work for the public. ‘

The Instagram Stories posts have since expired.

Artemiev denied the allegations to Page Six when he said: ‘I was saddened to hear about the completely false statements on social media by Julia Fox, my co-parent, who is clearly having a hard time.’

He continued: ‘Out of respect for her privacy and to protect our child, I will not comment further.’
