Kim Kardashian isn’t the only one diving back into the dating pool amid her divorce from Kanye West. On Jan. 1, West was spotted out on a romantic dinner date with “Uncut Gems”
actor Julia Fox at Carbone in Miami. The following day, “Page Six” reported the rapper is “taking things to the next level” in his newfound relationship with Julia amid his divorce proceedings. “Julia and Ye are dating,” a source told the outlet. “They both just got out of their former relationships, and they’ve helped each other recover immensely. They’re kind of kindred spirits, and it’s cool to watch.”

Since going public as a couple (and reportedly being in a “open relationship,” per “Page Six”), West and Fox, aka “Juliye,” have been spotted out on multiple date nights, at Paris Fashion Week, and at the actor’s 32nd birthday dinner. Some have had doubts on the legitimacy of the couple’s relationship, but Fox addressed those folks during her appearance on the “Call Me Daddy” podcast on Feb. 8. “I call him my boyfriend and he calls me his girlfriend,” she says on the episode. She adds that their connection was “very organic” and “very natural.”

She also spoke on the “unfortunate” comparisons to West’s estranged wife, saying they began after the two wore some similar looks. “Women are always just being pitted against each other, and obviously there’s 10 years of history that they have prior,” Fox said of West and Kardashian’s relationship. “I’m not going to — I don’t want to ever step out of line and speak on something that I have no place speaking on.” As far as West’s marriage goes, Fox says she has no feelings of jealousy about the rapper allegedly trying to get his wife back. “It’s human, you know, but I also like to know that he’s with me now . . . that’s all that matters.”

Speculation around West’s dating life spurred just after Kardashian doubled down on going through with the couple’s divorce. The two are calling it quits on their relationship after almost seven years of marriage. Kardashian addressed her divorce in her cover story for the March 2022 issue of “Vogue,” saying, “For so long, I did what made other people happy. And I think in the last two years I decided, I’m going to make myself happy. And that feels really good.” She added: “And even if that created changes and caused my divorce, I think it’s important to be honest with yourself about what really makes you happy. I’ve chosen myself. I think it’s okay to choose you.”

Since Kardashian and West’s divorce announcement, the former has begun dating Pete Davidson after the two reportedly reconnected following her “Saturday Night Live” hosting gig this past October. As far as Fox’s marriage is concerned, she announced that she’d separated from her husband, Peter Artemiev, after posting a rant on her Instagram Stories this past December, alleging that he’s a “dead beat alcoholic drug addict dad.” She later retracted her statement on the “Call Me Daddy” podcast saying, “I definitely don’t think I should’ve reacted that way.”
