Julia Fox opened up about her brief relationship with Kanye West while attending the premiere of The Batman in New York City on March 1. “It was the best thing that could have happened to me,” Julia told Entertainment Tonight. “It was like hitting a reset button. It kind of brought a spark back into my life that I had kind of forgotten about.” She also confirmed that she and Kanye are “still friends” following their split.

Kanye and Julia started dating after meeting at a New Year’s Eve party. They were hot and heavy for a month and a half, with Kanye even lavishing the actress with a Birkin bag on her birthday at the beginning of February. After several PDA-filled outings, though, Julia confirmed on Feb. 14 that she and Kanye had split. However, a rep for Julia revealed that they “remain good friends and collaborators” after the breakup.

Since ending things with Julia, Kanye has been spending an ample amount of time with 24-year-old Chaney Jones, who noticeably resembles his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian. On March 1, Kanye seemingly confirmed his relationship with Cheney by re-posting a photo of them on Instagram with a “heart” emoji as the caption. Chaney commented on the post with, “My love,” and the same heart emoji, as well.

Meanwhile, amidst all this, Kim has been hoping to “terminate” her marriage to Kanye as soon as possible. Although the two still have to work out the specifics of their divorce settlement, Kim is hoping to restore her “legally single” status as the logistics are figured out. However, Kanye has objected to some of the terms in Kim’s filings, and the exes’ lawyers are expected in court on March 2 to hash things out. There has been no shortage of drama between Kim and Kanye over the last few weeks, with him calling her out on social media multiple times, and her claiming that these posts have caused her “emotional distress.”

Julia certainly appears to be thriving after her split from Kanye, though, as she attended the star studded premiere of The Batman solo on March 1. For now, she’s staying single, too. “I don’t even have the time to, like, brush my hair,” she admitted. “I mean, if I meet someone, yes. If nature plays its course and someone comes along, I’d be more than happy to entertain that. But I’m not looking for anything right now.”
