“He’s a wonderful person and a gentleman,” and that was the end of it. “Nothing really occurred; we were simply hanging out as friends,” Fox said, adding, “I wouldn’t say we were dating.”
After West, 44, remarked in November that “it’s time to put it to rest” and subsequently reconnected onstage with Drake, 35, for the “Free Larry Hoover” charity concert in December, she claimed that the former rivals had put their differences behind them.
“I think they’ve solved their problems,” Fox said. Obviously, when I initially began talking to Ye, I told him right away—I believe on the first day, before it got any further—because I’m just a straightforward guy.
Despite referring to West as “music’s most influential guy,” Drake has had a tumultuous connection with the Donda singer since 2007. Their loved ones have also been affected by the on-again, off-again conflict, which includes claims that Drake had a relationship with West’s divorced wife, Kim Kardashian, which she subsequently denied.
Fox has been upfront about her burgeoning affair with West, admitting in her Interview magazine column that they met in Miami on New Year’s Eve and had an “instant connection.” Juliaye is their couple moniker, which she just developed.
Despite his current connection with Fox, a source previously told PEOPLE that West “is still telling people that he wants Kim Kardashian, who filed for divorce last year, back and he is prepared to make suitable adjustments to do so.”
West is divorcing Kardashian, 41, with whom he has daughters North, 8, and Chicago, 4, as well as boys Saint, 6, and 2-year-old Psalm. Since October, the SKIMS founder has been romantically connected to Pete Davidson, 28.
Fox has a 1-year-old kid named Valentino with ex-husband Peter Artemiev.
