During a recent interview on The Drew Barrymore Show, Julia Fox, aged 33, candidly disclosed her involvement with the renowned rapper Kanye West, aged 46, describing it as akin to tending to a second child.
Encounter With The Ephemeral Connection
The accomplished actress, who was romantically linked to West for a brief period of one month, appeared on the show to promote her newly released memoir, titled Down the Drain, where she delved into her experience with the fleeting relationship.
Fox elaborated on her decision to end the romance, stating, I could only sustain it for a limited duration as I firmly believe that he required someone who could devote their entire time and attention to him, which unfortunately I was unable to provide.
The Nature Of The Situation Was Rendered
She elaborated further, stating, The responsibility of being a mother to my son, Valentino, required my complete attention, while at the same time, West would often initiate lengthy telephone conversations.

However, the overwhelming nature of the situation rendered it unsustainable.
Julia, who co-parents her two-year-old son Valentino with her former partner Peter Artemiev, emphasized that her child is her utmost priority. My son must always come first.
