Julia Fox’s memoir takes readers Down the Drain along with her by way of her early work as a dominatrix and her 2019 breakout position in Uncut Gems. The e book, out now, concludes with a chapter of her life many are accustomed to, no less than as spectators: her relationship with Ye. Whereas Ye isn’t named within the memoir and is referred to solely as “the artist,” Fox supplies ample particulars that depart little doubt she is referring to her time with the controversial pop-culture determine, and they’re … illuminating.

Whereas Fox’s quick relationship with Ye dominated each tabloids and the web discourse, its thriller was a part of the intrigue. Paparazzi snaps and photograph shoots just like the one which appeared in Interview journal depicted the pair as a fashion-forward energy couple. By her personal account, nevertheless, Fox’s relationship with Ye was awkward, irritating, and, she now suspects, a one-sided publicity stunt involving Birkins, unsolicited boob-job gives, and, like seemingly everybody else in Hollywood, enjoying Uno. Beneath, some notable moments Fox shared about their relationship:

“I get a textual content from an outdated good friend asking if he can cross my quantity alongside to a well-known artist who’s been asking about me,” Fox writes. “I don’t suppose a lot of it at first. I’ve connected with celebrities earlier than and I already know they’re solely after one factor.”

Nevertheless, this introduction resulted in texts and hourslong cellphone calls between the pair, culminating in a New 12 months’s Eve meetup in Miami that became a dayslong go to capped by dinner at Carbone.

“He very bluntly asks me, ‘Would you wish to be my girlfriend?’” Fox writes. “I immediately burst out laughing. He can’t be critical. A photographer circles the desk, snapping candid pictures of us midsentence. He follows up with: ‘How would you are feeling about taking our relationship public?’”

A unique model of this story appeared in Interview journal. Whereas Fox says she submitted a “detailed paragraph recounting step-by-step how we met,” Ye despatched again “a totally new model that sounds nothing like me and is totally fabricated.” On a three-way name with one in every of his assistants, they ultimately landed on a model within the center that later appeared within the journal. “However the seed of doubt had been planted in my thoughts, and I can’t shake the sensation,” Fox writes.

After their New 12 months’s Eve assembly, Fox says she woke as much as “dozens of missed calls and texts” from Ye. He invitations her to his room, the place they “spend the day enjoying Uno and a sport that entails highlighting constructive phrases within the dictionary and coming to the belief that there aren’t many.” Steamy!

Throughout their first dinner date at Carbone, Ye reportedly requested for extra candles for the desk, “rearranging them, making a half-moon across the perimeter of the desk.” He then, Fox writes, after eradicating the additional glasses and silverware, moved your complete desk “three ft to the best so we will get a greater view of the slab of concrete on the aspect of the constructing.” Here’s what seems to be the slab of concrete on the aspect of the constructing.

After dinner at Carbone with concrete, they head again to Ye’s lodge and Fox places on A24’s Zola, starring Taylour Paige, Riley Keough, Nicholas Braun, and Colman Domingo. Ye apparently “falls in love with it,” which prompts him to e book himself and Fox tickets to Slave Play (in New York Metropolis), additionally written by Jeremy O. Harris, whom Fox then introduces to Ye through textual content.

This isn’t stunning to Kardashian followers, who noticed Ye’s affect on ex-wife Kim’s style over time. With Fox, he was notably aggressive, going as far as to covertly name in one in every of her stylists in the midst of a date to provide her new outfit choices as a result of he didn’t like what Fox was sporting (in case you can consider it, this anecdote additionally takes place at Carbone).

Fox’s stylists had been her two mates, Tammy and Liana, whom Ye employed after she confirmed him their work. When the pair cut up, Tammy and Liana continued working for Ye, occurring to model his subsequent girlfriend. Finally, this created a rift of their friendships. Whereas Liana stop working for Ye after a dialogue with Fox, Tammy continued.

“I block her quantity,” Fox writes. “I can’t settle for that my good friend of ten years would select him over me … for clout.”

In the course of the photograph shoot that may go on to seem in Interview journal, Fox says she remarked that she couldn’t put on one of many the outfits as a result of “it’s not fairly proper.” In response, Fox says Ye provided to get her a boob job.

“The artist’s phrases minimize by way of the air, sharp and sudden,” she writes. “I take a look at myself within the mirror, taking in my post-baby physique. They’re not so unhealthy, I believe to myself.”

Fox refused the boob job however says Ye’s supply “sticks to me like a bit of lint on my garments, and I can’t shake off the uncomfortable feeling.”

Whereas Ye and Fox’s January 2022 dinner with Madonna was portrayed within the media as Ye introducing Fox to his mates, Fox writes that it was she who had plans with Madonna — and Ye tagged alongside.

“He accompanies me to a dinner I had beforehand deliberate with Madonna,” she writes. “He introduces me to everybody as his new girlfriend.”

As their relationship progressed, Fox started to suspect that she was extra prop than companion. “The one time he engages is when the digicam is on us,” she writes, “when he’ll seize me and kiss me passionately.” A lot of her vital moments with Ye had been documented by his private photographers, and in no less than one occasion, Ye had Fox and her mates re-create their response to his gifting them Birkin baggage a number of occasions so the cameras might get one of the best shot.

“As we publish like puppets, I query his true intentions, feeling that this grand gesture is nothing greater than a publicity stunt,” she writes. “I’m disconnected from the second. I attempt to discover gratitude for the lavish items, however the feeling of insincerity lingers.”

Early on of their relationship, Ye promised Fox a “million-dollar deal” with an Italian denim firm and negotiated it on her behalf. Nevertheless, following their cut up — which occurred over the cellphone, reportedly initiated by Fox however intensified by Ye saying he spoke together with his “ex-wife,” who shared details about Fox being a former drug addict — the deal was dropped.

“‘It’s contingent on you being his girlfriend,’ I’m knowledgeable,” she writes. Beforehand, Fox says she misplaced a industrial job with the manufacturing firm citing “ties with the artist’s estranged spouse.” Fortunately for Fox, nevertheless, she refused to signal Ye’s NDA, giving her clearance to money out on all these tales in a e book.
