Romance is in the air this Valentine’s Day, but not so much for American rapper Kanye “Ye” West and now ex-girlfriend actress Julia Fox. Sparks may have been brilliant in their first meeting at a Miami party on December 31 of the previous year, but it’s now gone as confirmed by the Uncut Gems actress’ rep on Page Six, saying that the two have parted ways although they still remain as “good friends”. The now ex-couple was in an open relationship and dated for about six weeks.
The split was said to have happened after Super Bowl Sunday which Fox (32) and West (44) attended along with North and Saint – the rapper’s children with SKIMS founder and Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum, Kim Kardashian (41) who is now happily seeing SNL cast member Pete Davidson (28). West was seen wearing a black full-face mask at the game, and this getup did not escape from comments and reactions on social media, especially from movie director Judd Apatow. The post made by Apatow was then shared on Page Six’s Instagram reel to which Julia Fox responded with some faces with tears of joy emojis. Aside from this mockery on social media, West was also booed by the game’s spectators.
Hours before the big game, Kanye took to Instagram to diss his estranged wife’s boyfriend and fellow rapper Kid Cudi in since-deleted posts. He captioned on a paparazzi pic of Kim and Pete “LOOK AT THIS D–KHEAD”, adding “I WONDER IF INSTAGRAM GONNA SHUT DOWN MY PAGE FOR DISSING HILARY CLINTON’S EX BOYFRIEND.”
Kanye also posted a screenshot of a private conversation with Pete Davidson, and captioned it “No you will never meet my children” when Davidson expressed his interest in meeting the kids. The heated posts didn’t stop there though for Kanye also posted a selfie as evidence that his account had not been hacked. The most recent one is a picture of the SKIMS founder with a caption expressing his hope of them getting back together after Kim filed for divorce last February 2021, and also took to Instagram on February 4 to publicly acknowledge Kanye’s hurtful attacks.
As for Kid Cudi, Kanye declared on Instagram that the rapper is out of his latest upcoming album “DONDA 2” because of his amicable relations with “you know who” who is none other than Kim’s current beau, Pete Davidson.
With regards to their split and reports of her tearing up because of the breakup, Fox shared in her since-deleted Instagram story that she “hasn’t cried since 1997” and that she wouldn’t shed tears “over THIS!!!”, referring to the split.
