Mere weeks before Julia Fox, 31, met and went on dates with Kanye West, 44, the actress admitted she’s a fan of his ex Kim Kardashian, 41, and her family. The Uncut Gems actress got onto the topic while chatting about Kim’s hot new relationship with Pete Davidson, 28, and Kimye’s on-going divorce during an episode of her Spotify podcast Forbidden Fruits.
“Can we talk about the Kim and Kanye divorce? Wait, can we talk about Kim and Pete Davidson, though?” she began, before confessing she’s been a viewer of the families now-wrapped E! reality series Keeping Up With The Kardashians since day one. “I have been watching Keeping Up since it first came out in 2007 when watching it was embarrassing,” she hilariously went on.
She added that she “wanted” Kris Jenner’s clan, that also includes Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall and Kylie, “to be my family,” explaining that she’s a “die-hard, OG fan.” Julia went on, “You feel like you know them…it’s like you are happy for them when something good happens to them.”
A mere two weeks later, Julia met Kanye (know just Ye) 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 about their initial meeting in Interview magazine that also included plenty of sexy PDA photos. “He had me and my friends laughing, dancing, and smiling all night.” Just a day later, the brunette bombshell was out on a dinner date at Italian hot spot Carbone in South Beach (she wrote the eatery is “one of her favorite restaurants” while discussing their second date at Carbone’s original NYC location).
Kanye swept Julia off her feet with their second date that also included an outing to Jeremy O. Harris‘ Slave Play, along with a Balenciaga makeover — all of which Kanye had documented with a photographer. “At the restaurant, Ye directed an entire photo shoot for me while people dined! The whole restaurant loved it and cheered us on while it was happening,” she added in the short essay. “After dinner Ye had a surprise for me. I mean, I’m still in shock. Ye had an entire hotel suite full of clothes,” she revealed. “It was every girl’s dream come true. It felt like a real Cinderella moment. I don’t know how he did it, or how he got all of it there in time.”
