Julia Fox slams Kanye West as a ‘baby’: ‘My son has to be first!’

After their short-lived fling fizzled out last year, actress Julia Fox has slammed Kanye West as a “baby”, saying he was too demanding for their relationship to be sustainable as she has to put her son before any man.

Julia Fox has slammed Kanye West as a “baby”.

The ‘Uncut Gems’ actress, 33, who has son Valentino, with her private pilot ex-husband Peter Artemiev and briefly dated rapper Kanye, 46, at the start of 2022, mocked her ex during an appearance on Wednesday’s (18.10.23) ‘The Drew Barrymore Show’.

She told the ‘E.T.’ actress, 48, about her “overwhelming” relationship with Kanye: “My son has to be first. It just became too much, like I didn’t sign up to have two babies, you know?”

Julia added she could only date Kanye – who has four children with his 42-year-old reality TV star ex Kim Kardashian – “for so long” before it became too much.

She said: “Ultimately I think he needed a full-time person and I just couldn’t be full-time.

“I had my son and then (Kanye would) wanna talk on the phone a lot.

“Ultimately I think he needed a full-time person and I just couldn’t be full-time.

“Like, I’d have to change diapers and so I bought a pair of AirPods so I could keep it in while I was doing mom stuff.

“It was just – it was so overwhelming and so unsustainable.

“I think I just realised very quickly it just wasn’t gonna be sustainable because ultimately I cannot put anybody else first.”

Julia was married to pilot Peter from 2018 to 2020 and she was first linked to Kanye when they were seen celebrating the New Year together in Miami.

Their romance has been making headlines again due to Julia’s new memoir ‘Down the Drain’, which came out on 10 October.

She goes into excruciating detail in the book about her and Kanye’s short-lived relationship, including tales about the texts and phone calls at the start of their relationship to their steamy first meeting.

Kanye showered her with gifts during their fling and even offered her a breast augmentation.

But Julia said she often had an uneasy feeling Kanye was using her as a “publicity stunt”.

Her fear was fuelled by an incident when Kanye gave her and her friends designer bags for her birthday and asked them to pose with their new accessories as he stood in the background “looking on with pride” – prompting Julia to split with him the following day.

Julia has previously been open about their doomed romance, telling

The New York Times in September “there, like, wasn’t any” sexual encounters with the rapper.

She added: “It wasn’t really about that.”

Julia also told The Los Angeles Times she felt Kanye had “weaponised” her, saying: “I really understood him on a visceral level… but I learned very quickly that I was being weaponised. I just felt like his little puppet.”

She also confirmed she refused to sign a non-disclosure agreement about their time together, saying: “I never have, and I never will. Unless it’s a professional opportunity, then sure.”
