Actress Julia Fox is in the media spotlight after being spotted on a date with Kanye West in Miami over the weekend, including renewed interest in a recent post she made on Instagram calling out her ex as a “dead beat dad.”
A source close to West initially told Page Six that the date was “nothing serious,” and Fox herself told paparazzi she didn’t know if she would see the rapper again following their dinner date. (However, they are now reportedly dating.)
The Uncut Gems actress had more to say when she recently ripped her ex, Peter Artemiev, for allegedly not taking his role as a parent to their young son seriously.
“Have you seen this dead beat dad?” Fox wrote over a picture of Artemiev. “He can be found at most strip clubs, Lucien, Paul’s bbg, Casablanca, the streets etc. Please REMIND him that he has a child to take care of!”
She also took aim at his friends who she feels enable him, “knowing damn well he is a dead beat alcoholic drug addict dad.”
Fox received a mixture of support and vitriol for the sentiment, which was posted to her Instagram stories towards the end of December.
One viewer complained that she should “stop trying to trap men that want nothing to do with a family,” and suggested her acting career would be over because of it.
However, Fox made it clear she prioritizes her son’s well-being over her acting, noting that he loves his dad and she has no qualms with calling Artemiev out for allegedly not being as active in his life as a father should be.
“I’ve accepted that his Dad refuses to [be] present and I’ve made peace with it but I’m sure as sh*t gonna work the public!!” she wrote.
