Fox and Ye briefly dated at the beginning of 2022 after meeting at a New Years’ Eve 2021 party. In a new interview with The Los Angeles Times, Fox said that she initially thought the relationship “could be something real,” and previously said in a since-deleted TikTok that she thought that she could “distract” him from his now ex-wife Kim Kardashian.

“I thought ultimately I’d be helping a precarious situation, but I learned very quickly that I was being weaponized,” she told the LA Times. “I just felt like his little puppet.”

Fox made similar comments in another September interview with Rolling Stone, saying that she felt that Ye was “weaponizing me to get back at his ex-wife.” Kardashian filed for divorce from Ye in February 2021, and their divorce was finalized in November 2022.

According to Fox, her famous blog post about a date night with Ye published in Interview Magazine in January 2022 was mostly fiction, and written at the request of Ye’s team.

In an interview with the Evening Standard, Fox said that she left the relationship “at the first sign of a red flag,” telling the publication that Ye had “unresolved issues” that she didn’t have the capacity to deal with.

Ultimately though, Fox is looking to put her time with Ye behind her, telling the LA Times that she believes it caused her to lose out on professional opportunities.

“It really wasn’t that big of a deal, but other people made it such a big deal,” she told the LA Times.

Representatives for Ye did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
