Their romance lasted for less than two months but Julia Fox and Kanye West’s short-lived relationship still continues to make headlines.
Indeed, the Uncut Gems star has since shared several eye-raising tidbits about the failed romance which began in January 2022 – shortly after the rapper’s split from estranged wife, Kim Kardashian.
In her most recent headline-grabbing revelation, the 32-year-old gave insight into the size of her former partner’s penis during her appearance on Sunday’s episode of Ziwe.
The day after that conversation aired, the PVT Chat star claimed that she only dated Kanye to ‘get him off Kim Kardashian’s case.’
Julia and Kanye met in Miami and were first spotted together over New Year’s weekend.
The actress subsequently confirmed her relationship with West in an Interview magazine piece in which she said they had an ‘instant connection.’
The couple dated until mid-February, with Julia telling The Cut that things were ‘much more amplified’ for her during her time dating the rapper.
In the months since the pair’s split, Julia has claimed that the relationship had a negative effect on her movie career, and revealed she ended things after spotting ‘red flags’.
Here, FEMAIL lays bare some of the most unexpected comments the No Sudden Move actress has made about the brief romance.

True size: Host Ziwe shrieked at the supposed size of West’s manhood and exclaimed, ‘Oh, my God!’
When Julia made an appearance in the second season of Ziwe on Sunday, the actress shared more information about her intimate time with Kanye than the host was expecting.
The comedian, 30, began to spread out her hands to try and guess the size of the musician’s penis length and said: ‘Tell me when to stop’.
Ziwe had her hands out past her shoulder when Fox stopped and said she should make the gap smaller until it was around a foot long.
‘Oh, my God!’ Ziwe exclaimed while the words ‘hate comes in all sizes’ were superimposed into the gap between her hands.
Julia could be seen giggling while Ziwe continued to showcase her surprise through her facial expressions.

TikTok queen: The Uncut Gems actress said she was ‘delusional’ to have ever thought she could help the rapper
In a TikTok video shared by the actress on Monday, Julia said she was ‘delusional’ to have ever thought she could help the rapper.
The admission came after a fan asked why she dated ‘a famously violent misogynist and anti-Semite’.
Julia responded: ‘OK, since — I was just going to write about it in my book and then have y’all buy it, but I’ll just tell you guys for free.
‘First of all, the man was being normal around me and not only that but the Kardashians, when I had a fashion line 10 years ago they actually bought our clothes and sold them in their stores and so I’ve always had a love for Kim especially and even Kourtney especially and like all of them pretty much.
Past love: Kanye married Kim in Florence, Italy in 2014, and welcomed four children together (pictured 2016)
‘But, no, like the big three: Khloé, Kim, Kourtney. Those are my girls. Anyway, so by the time me and him got together, it was like, he hadn’t been doing anything, you know, like out there yet.’
She continued: ‘He, the only thing he had done was change the name in the song and said like, “Come back to me, Kimberly.” That was like really the only thing when we met.
‘But I remember just being like, ugh, he was texting me, I wasn’t really answering. I was like I don’t really want to talk [with] this celebrity again. You know what I mean?
‘Nothing ever comes of it. They’re kind of boring. They’re not what you think they’re going to be like. But he kept going and going and he was like you have bad text etiquette and I was like, “Oh my god, Kanye’s yelling at me. What do I do?”‘
Julia added: ‘But then I had this thought: I was like, “Oh my god, maybe I can get him off of Kim’s case. Maybe I can distract him, just get him to like me and I knew if anyone can do it, it’s me because when I set my mind to something, I do it.’
‘And I will say that that month that we spent together, he wasn’t on Twitter first of all. He wasn’t on any forms of social media. He didn’t even talk about his relationship.
‘We only really talked about clothes and weird ideas and plans for the future and our hopes and dreams for childhood and education. And it was really beautiful, guys.
‘The moment he started tweeting, I was out… I’d already been like, ‘Dude, I’m not going to stick around for this s**t.’
‘And also, I realized pretty quickly that he wasn’t going to take my help. I was like, “I want to help him. I want to help him.”
‘I sounded almost as dumb as you guys, saying that I should’ve done something to stop him from saying — like, what? But anyway, I was delusional. I thought I could help him.
‘Anyway it didn’t work and now we’re here. But that being said, really, deeply respect the man as an artist. I don’t want to s**t on that. I don’t want to reduce his whole career to his really bad moments, you know?’
Bad romance: Julia says her relationship with Kanye impacted her career in a negative way

During her appearance on Emily Ratajkowski’s podcast, High Low with EmRata, Julia revealed the impact her short-lived relationship had on her career.
‘After the big relationship, I definitely noticed a shift in the acting way, not in a good way,’ she began. ‘I’m not getting as many offers as I was before, weirdly. There’s been a lot of weird drawbacks with reaching that level of notoriety.’
Fox added that before dating West she ‘was really typecasted as a pervy Italian girl and now I’m just like skinny and look sickly and it’s like, I don’t know.’
The Milan, Italy-born beauty added she felt that a portion of people in the entertainment business think she might be a ‘liability’ and ‘tabloid type of person.’
Fox, who appeared with Adam Sandler in 2019’s Uncut Gems, said that she was undeterred by temporary setbacks and just had ‘to trust the process.’
Fox, who appeared in last year’s Steven Soderbergh drama No Sudden Move, added: ‘It’s fine, I’m so busy. I think things come to you at the right time, so that’s why I’m really not stressing. I really don’t care.’
‘I’ve never been operating at the level that Ye is,’ she said. ‘I never wanted to be super-megafamous. It’s a life-ender for some celebrities. They become reclusive and paranoid and hide. I refuse to not live authentically.’
End of the line: Julia claims she ended the relationship after she started to spot ‘red flags’

Julia opened up about their very brief romance for ES Magazine, revealing that she was the one who initiated the split due to ‘red flags.’
‘It just seems like he had a lot to work on, and I just don’t have time for it, or energy,’ she said about her ex.
‘The unresolved issues that he was dealing with,’ she said when asked what the red flags she saw were.
‘It just seems like he had a lot to work on, and I just don’t have time for it, or energy. I don’t have the bandwidth or emotional capacity for it. I’m proud of myself for that,’ she added.
The mom-of-one – she shares son Valentino, 22 months, with ex-husband Peter Artemiev – added that she ‘would have definitely stuck it out and been there for longer’ prior to having her son.
