It’s Julia Fox‘s world, we’re just living in it.

In just a few short days, the Uncut Gems heroine and New York City scene-ster catapulted to the forefront of online discourse and tabloid headlines for her fledging relationship with none other than Kanye West.

News of the pairing came out of left field, making the entire affair even buzzier.

Shortly before Fox and West went public, the rapper asked his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, to “run back to me” during the “Free Larry Hoover” concert.

And just ahead of Christmas, Fox posted a series of no-holds-barred Instagram Stories explaining why she split from ex Peter Artemiev, who allegedly abandoned her and their one-year-old son, Valentino.

Fox and West’s relationship is as much as a surprise as Kardashian and Pete Davidson’s jaunt, a spectacle that’s sent equally forceful tremors through the pop culture sphere.

Unsurprisingly, plenty of onlookers are speculating that West’s new romance is a publicity stunt, an attempt to “get back” at Kardashian, pointing to an old Paper Magazine photoshoot starring Fox and Davidson as supposed proof.

Stunt or not, the coupling of two artists whose work tends to blur the line between public and private is the spectacle of a lifetime — and I’m more than happy to watch.

Below, a timeline of Julia Fox and Kanye West’s maybe real, maybe fake (does it even matter?) relationship.

January 6, 2022: Fox pens a brief article for Interview magazine confirming her and Ye’s romance.

Detailing their NYC date night, the actor writes that the DONDA provocateur “directed an entire photoshoot” for her at Carbone.

“After dinner… Ye had an entire hotel suite full of clothes. It was every girl’s dream come true. It felt like a real Cinderella moment… I don’t know where things are headed but if this is any indication of the future I’m loving the ride.”

As for that suite full of clothes? Despite dressing Fox exclusively in Balenciaga (save for that pair of Miaou thong pants), Ye presented his flame with Glenn Martens‘s first collection for Diesel.

January 7, 2022: Speaking to Brock Colyar of The Cut, Fox clears the air regarding her Instagram Stories about Artemiev.

“I obviously was not expecting all the publicity to come after I had come for my son’s father online,” she said. “My son’s dad loves his son more than anything in the world. He just has some issues that I shouldn’t have made public.”

Ending the chat on an optimistic note, Fox wrote in a text message to Colyar: “The overall message is that if ur in a toxic relationship, get out of it cuz u never who know or what could be waiting on the other side <3.”



Later that day, Ye posts a series of rather uneventful Instagram Stories showing Fox… walking down the street at night.
