Julia Fox opened up about her brief two-month romance and split with Kanye West in a recent interview with ES Magazine.
The Italian-American actress shared that rapper had a lot of “unresolved issues” which is why she split from Ye. She also added that she was “proud” to have initiated the break-up.
“The unresolved issues that he was dealing with… 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,” the 32-year-old said about Kanye, 45.
In another interview with The New York Times published in March, Fox suggested that their busy schedules played a factor in their breakup.
“I tried my best to make it work. I already had a jam-packed life. How do I fit this really big personality into this already full life? It just wasn’t sustainable. I lost like 15 lbs. in that month.”
Fox also addressed claims that accused her for using the relationship for personal gain. She told that ES that it was actually Ye who approached her through a mutual friend.
“That’s such bulls—. He got my number through a mutual friend, period.”
After agreeing that there was “a good amount” of what ES described as a “romantic spark” between the two, Fox said that she took the relationship “day by day” to see “where it went.”
Talking about the red flags she noticed, Fox elucidated that “real life set in and the lifestyle wasn’t sustainable. I couldn’t fly away once a week. And I tapped out at the first sign of a red flag.”
The model also hinted that West’s very public divorce from ex-wife Kim Kardashian was another major cause for the split. However, the model and actor confessed that she was proud to have taken this step.
“I’m proud of myself for that,” Fox told to ES. “Pre-Valentino [her son with Peter Artemiev] Julia would have definitely stuck it out and been there for longer.”
Fox and West met in Miami on New Year’s Eve, and on Valentine’s Day, a rep for the mother of one confirmed to PEOPLE in a statement, “Julia and Kanye remain good friends and collaborators but they are no longer together.”
