When news broke that Kanye West and actress Julia Fox had started dating, many fans didn’t believe it. When the news was confirmed, many shifted to the team that thought West was using Fox to make his soon-to-be ex-wife, reality star Kim Kardashian jealous.
After all, he was very vocal about how much he loves Kim and wants to win her back, so how did he go from that to being in another relationship in a matter of days? Some have theorized that Kim’s very public relationship with comedian Pete Davidson might be what triggered West.
They think that by getting in a relationship with Fox, West is sending Kim a message that he, too, has moved on. Unfortunately, it seems like his plan didn’t work out quite the way he thought it would. Read on to find out more.
Fox Is A Huge Fan Of The Kardashians
The major wrench in what fans think is West’s plan to make Kim jealous is that Fox is a massive fan of Kim and the Kardashians. She is vocal about her admiration for the family and even recently spoke about it in one of her podcast’ episodes.
She said, “I’m gonna miss Keeping Up With the Kardashians. I have been watching Keeping Up since it first came out in 2007 when, like, watching it was embarrassing… I wanted them to be my family. You feel like you know them.”
The “Uncut Gems” actress also labeled herself as a die-hard fan of the family and shared that she has always felt like a family member. She also said, “It’s like you are happy for them when something good happens to them.”
Kim Is Thrilled About West And Fox
According to a recent post by TMZ, Kim is very aware that Fox is a huge Kardashian fan, and she’s happy about it. She has made it clear that she’s okay with whatever decisions West makes for himself as long as he is happy.
Sources close to the reality star told TMZ that she also doesn’t want any bad blood and just wants to maintain “positive vibes.” They also shared that Kim hopes Fox will understand and be less likely to create any drama as an OG fan of her and her family.
Kim is also hopeful that if West and Fox’s relationship progresses, it will make the co-parenting structure easier and more stable, especially as Fox is also a mother and will understand how important it is for Kim’s kids with West to be in a stable and peaceful environment.
Fox And Kanye’s Relationship Is Progressing
Although there isn’t much info about the details of Fox and West’s relationship, one thing is glaring- the two seem to be happy with each other. One thing fans do know is that West is prince charming to Fox, at least from what she revealed about their first two dates.
In a date night piece for Interview magazine, she spoke about how they met, their first and second date, and how he surprised her with clothes, shoes, and tons of other gifts. She also shared that she’s happy and excited about their relationship and her experiences with him.
Since then, Fox and West have been quiet and private about their time together, but they can’t hide it all. They were recently seen having lunch with NFL player Antonio Brown at Craig’s, a popular restaurant in LA.
Fans Think West Is Using Fox
Many fans of Kim have suggested that West’s sudden relationship with Fox was designed to make Kim jealous. They expressed that it’s odd that West was publicly insisting on how much he loves Kim and wants to work on their marriage just days before he was seen publicly with the actress.
He spoke about the divorce for the first time during his appearance on the Drink Champs podcast, where he insisted that Kim was still his wife, he never saw any divorce papers, and that the media is promoting lies to make money.
So, it’s difficult for fans to see someone who claimed to be still married and willing to work on his relationship suddenly be with another woman publicly. Many have also theorized that West and Fox’s relationship could be a planned stunt or that Fox is using West to get closer to her idols, the Kardashians.
