Julia Fox, 31, confessed she is a fan of Kanye West’s ex-wife Kim Kardashian, 41, and her family just weeks before meeting and dating him. During an episode of her Spotify podcast Forbidden Fruits, the Uncut Gems actress brought up the subject when discussing Kim’s hot new relationship with Pete Davidson, 28, and Kimye’s ongoing divorce.
“Can we talk about the Kim and Kanye divorce? Wait, can we talk about Kim and Pete Davidson, though?” she asked, before admitting that she’s been a fan of the Kardashians’ now-defunct E! reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians since the beginning. “I have been watching Keeping Up since it first came out in 2007 when watching it was embarrassing,” she hilariously went on.
She went on to say that she “wanted” Kris Jenner’s family, which includes Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall, and Kylie, to “be my family,” describing herself as a “die-hard, OG fan.” The influencer revealed that she feels like she knows them. “it’s like you are happy for them when something good happens to them,” she chimed in.
Julia met Kanye (also known as Ye) just two weeks later while out in Miami for New Year’s Eve. “I met Ye in Miami on New Year’s Eve and it was an instant connection. His energy is so fun to be around,” she wrote in an interview with Interview magazine about their first meeting, which included plenty of sexual PDA images. “He had me and my friends laughing, dancing, and smiling all night.”
The brunette bombshell was out on a dinner date the next day at Italian hotspot Carbone in South Beach (she wrote the eatery is “one of her favourite restaurants” while discussing their second date at Carbone’s original NYC location while discussing their second date at Carbone’s original NYC location).
Kanye blew Julia away on their second date, which included a trip to see Jeremy O. Harris’ Slave Play and a Balenciaga makeover, all of which Kanye photographed with a photographer. “At the restaurant, Ye directed an entire photoshoot for me while people dined! The whole restaurant loved it and cheered us on while it was happening,” she wrote in the brief essay.
She continued that Kanye had a surprise for her after dinner and revealed that she is still reeling it in. Julia added that he had an entire hotel suite full of clothes and it was every girl’s dream come true. She explained that it felt like a Cinderella moment and she does not know how he did it.
