Kanye West’s Julia Fox showmance is ‘a ploy to get under Kim Kardashian’s skin’

Kanye West and new flame, Julia Fox enjoy a night out on Broadway and head to dinner at Carbone

Kanye West has been dating Julia Fox since New Year’s Eve, basically. That’s when they met, and they’ve been somewhat inseparable ever since. She’s an actress and she’s very pretty, and she’s also milking this for all its worth. I hate-respect what she’s doing, honestly. Like, would I enter into a very public showmance with a man who has dealt with significant mental health issues for years? Probably not, but Julia is doing Julia. She’s going to come out of this with something: new clothes, a modeling contract, more acting jobs, something. While Julia is doing the most to “sell” her romance with Kanye – including writing about this mess in Interview Magazine – I believe they’re both “in” on what’s really happening. Especially since Kanye is apparently still hellbent on winning back Kim Kardashian.

Kanye West is “clearly hurting” and his romance with actress Julia Fox is “a ploy to get under ex Kim Kardashian’s skin,” sources say. West’s whirlwind affair with New York cool girl Fox was sparked by Kardashian’s relationship with “Saturday Night Live” star Pete Davidson, sources exclusively claim to Page Six.

“It’s a desperate play for attention. There’s no other explanation when he chooses … [Fox] to go public with,” one source said. Another source insisted West is in pain after Kardashian moved on with Davidson. The rapper has called for his ex to “run back to” him, even while he has still stepped out with a series of models.

“He publicly fights for his family back, and then he’s linked to all these different girls. It’s very strange,” the source said.

West and the “Uncut Gems” star Fox were first snapped by the rapper’s own photographer on dates in Miami and New York early this month. Then, in a steamy performance-art photo shoot, for Interview, Fox said they had an “instant connection” after meeting on New Year’s Eve and gushed about West surprising her with a hotel suite full of clothes for a date night.

Multiple insiders described it as a throwback to the beginning of “Kimye,” when fashion insider West transformed — and often styled — Kardashian. Ironically, Fox has described herself as a “die-hard, OG fan” of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”

Everyone has their agenda here, except maybe Pete Davidson? I think Pete actually likes Kim and there’s no big ploy (on his part) to do anything other than spend time with Kim. Kim’s agenda is to show Kanye and the world that she’s moved on, that she’s still sexy, that she can be with a guy who adores her. Kanye’s agenda is to make Kim jealous AND to show the world that his thing isn’t just about Jesus/preacher sh-t. Julia’s agenda is to get more fame, more work, more stuff. The only person who is unhappy with the way things stand is Kanye, and I halfway believe HE believes he’s just doing one big stunt anyway.

    This is all very yucky and embarrassing.

    What the hell kind of pants are those??

    Kim’s agenda is to get more attention than Kourtney/Travis. Julia is a hustler and a great choice on Kanye’s part. I say get all the perks girl.

  5. Ks says:

    “To get under Kim’s skims”

  6. Veronica Rhodes says:

    He’s definitely getting under her skin or she would not have tan to pagesix.

  7. AmelieOriginal says:

    Is her thong strap showing in those photos? I thought we left exposed thong straps in late 90s/early 2000s where they belonged

    And this whole thing is so desperate, Kanye picks some random D list actor and tries to make Kim jealous by showering her with free clothes which he used to do with her, before the novelty wore off? Kim would only be jealous if he bagged a household A-list name. Pete Davidson is maybe not A-list (B-list?) but he’s semi famous with millennials and Generation Z and she managed to pick someone who can keep her relevant pop culture wise first and this bothers Kanye immensely.

  8. Mac says:

    I somehow doubt deliberately trying to provoke Kim will work out the way Kanye thinks it will.

  9. CE says:

    It is so odd to me that Pete’s claim to fame is who he’s currently f*cking, and he gets passed around like a hot potato. I’m no prude but this thing yucks me out.
    I’m over Kanye for the rest of my life and would prefer never to hear about him again. He’s a bad guy and subverted democracy.

  10. Soph says:

    Someone should get Kanye some dolls instead. Perhaps collab with Barbie? Perfect match. He gets to dress up silent compliant plastic women and real women won’t have to deal with Kanye.

    Win win.

  11. Mia4s says:

    Yeah…Julia knows what she’s doing….no one should feel bad for or sorry for her.

    I’d find this all funnier if there weren’t a lot of children involved (including her child). Overall there is a major lack of adults in this situation. 🙄

    • Emma says:

      They have children, but they’re not involving the children at all in this.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        How do you know? You know Kim loves to drag her kids everywhere including her Momager getting involved. Kim is just trying to topple Kourtneys current relationship, as @ Normades stated.

  12. mellie says:

    Her pants are gross, but what’s he doing? Has he been out working on a farm? Because I grew up on a farm and those boots look like something we would wear to clean out stalls…actually that whole outfit looks like something I’d have thrown on when I’d go out and work in the barn.

  13. Winoforever says:

    The last photo is giving big “I just met a 5’7 guy who’s just my type” vibes.

  14. ARHUS says:

    Her outfit is so bad.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      It’s truly disgusting and it’s not doing her any favors. In fact, the exact opposite. Pull up your pants girl!

  15. jferber says:

    I love your “hate-respect” for Julia, Kaiser. Yes, I hate-respect what she’s doing, too. I wonder if she can have Kanye throw in the $83,000 face lift that Mark Jacobs got that I’m obsessed with (yes, she looks good NOW). Sorry, but I’m reluctantly with her. I doubt there’s anything physical between them and if she can scoop up whatever material/surgical goods, fame, contracts, etc., why the hell not? For real.


    Julia is an odd duck. She’s had exhibitions of her artwork where she’s made paintings with her own blood. She has also been photographed in Playboy. Those two things aren’t mutually exclusive by any means, I just can’t get a read on her, other than that I think she thinks she’s very edgy but is also willing to play the game for any and all attention.

    Kanye is pissed Kim is the one who filed for divorce. She left him not the other way around. That’s whats egging him on. Kim got divorced and is dating Pete because Keeping up with the Kardashians ended. Yeah I know they have a new show but has anyone heard anything about it. It’s not keeping her name in the papers so she has to do something. I don’t listen to rap. How is Kanye’s new album doing? I haven’t heard anything about it except for his stunt listening sessions. So I’m sure he’s also trying to keep his name out there. Both their entire lives revolves around being in the news.

    Translation: Kim and Kris are leaking negative stories about Kayne and his new muse to Page Six because Kim is jealous and isn’t over Kayne.

    So the press is going to pretend as if this story didn’t come from Kris and Kim?

    The press needs to do better and stop treating the victim/hero narratives that Kris pays the press to write about her daughters as fact. What stands out about Kim and Kris’ latest “Kayne wants Kim back” leak is the hypocrisy. How dare Kayne move on, especially after Kris and Kim have been spinning that Kim has moved on/is over Kayne and won’t take him back and is having the time of her life with another man whose mental illness she and her family are publicly exploiting for storylines, headlines, and staged photo-ops. The Kardashians must think that they are the only ones who have the right to exploit men with mental illnesses.

    What about Kim’s actions demonstrate that she is happy “dating” Pete? Because Kris paid a tabloid to write it? Kim has spent her entire fake relationship with Pete leaking stories about Kayne and women whom she perceives as threats(first it was that she wasn’t jealous of Irina and the IG model, then it was Miley was trying to steal her PR boyfriend, and now it’s Kayne is trying to make her jealous by dating another woman because it isn’t her). Kayne must have a major project coming up and Kris and Kim want Julia out of the way so that they can exploit Kayne’s mental illness for headlines and photo-ops. The press needs to stop trying to normalize Kim(that’s how we ended up with Trump for 4 years) and acting like she is the victim or hero because she knew what type of person Kayne was when she inserted herself into his and Amber Roses’ relationship.

    The press needs to be more concerned about Pete’s mental state because Kris and Kim only target men when they are having manic episodes.
