Julia Fox deleted a slew of Instagram photos over the weekend — all the ones featuring Kanye West, sparking rumors of a breakup. Not only did Fox, 32, purge Ye, 44, from her feed (with the exception of two posts), Cosmopolitan reports that she also unfollowed several accounts that were dedicated to reposting photos of her and West.
Fox cleared it all up on her Instagram Story, saying that she was getting ahead of any trolls, who had already started to claim that she was only posting photos of herself where she looked great. “Guys relax, I unfollowed the fan accounts because I was tired of seeing myself. Suddenly Instagram was not a fun place anymore,” she said. “I took the f—ing photos down because I read the comments and everyone was like, ‘Oh my god, you clearly only posted photos you looked good in.'”
One of the remaining photos of West was accompanied with a caption that pointed out how good she looked for her birthday (February 2): “YES IM AWARE I ONLY CHOSE PHOTOS THAT I LOOK GOOD IN 💅🏻”
Sources close to Page Six confirmed that Ye and Fox are still an item and reiterated that she was just trying to get rid of mean comments, saying, “she deleted the photos because commenters were being really mean and she didn’t want to deal.”
Though West and Fox are firmly on solid ground, the same can’t be said about West and his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian. As we earlier reported, he decided to publicly air his grievances about North West being on TikTok, which garnered an online back-and-forth with Kim on Instagram.
Another source told Page Six that the Uncut Gems actress is understanding of Ye’s situation, as she’s been through it herself. “Julia’s been in the same predicament, so she understands that divorces are messy and when kids are involved it makes it almost impossible. She just wants them to resolve their issues.”
