Kanye West’s former girlfriend and actor Julia Fox and rapper Azealia Banks got into a war of words on social media and the conflict between the two has gone viral.
It all reportedly began after Banks called out Fox and branded her as a ‘low rate escort’. The 30-year-old rapper even went on to call her son a ‘crackbaby’, prompting the 'Uncut Gems' star to claim that the 'Count Contessa' hitmaker once asked her for the phone number of a drug dealer and leaked screengrabs from the text exchange.
The 32-year-old actor who shared son Valentino with ex Peter Artemiev, immediately shut down claims of shedding tears following her split with West and ending their romance while Banks reposted Fox's Instagram statement and claimed the latter was a sex worker.
"We already know the tea Foolia! [You] came to Miami looking for sex work, [the] same lawyer was in contract with Ye and it was a weak PR stunt from the jump," the '212' rapper wrote. "What did you hustle him for?" Banks asked Fox. "A bag and some Lucien's? You absolutely did not come up because if this is how women who 'always date billionaires' behave when shit goes south, threatening tell-all books... You can kiss your days as a low-rate escort goodbye, sis."
She continued, "The things you have made public in regards to your drug abuse (shit he probably had no clue about in the beginning) are not what he needs associated with him in any custody battle that may arise in court during divorce proceedings."
Banks branded Fox a ‘liability’ in yet another rant, saying that "the fact [she] thought [Kanye would] pick [her] over his children just reeks of entitlement, a lack of any real motherly instinct, and proves that [she is] in fact, a woman child." She added, "We won't be purchasing your book, I wouldn't write it if I were you. It'll make [you] look racist and bitter. You are not Karrine Steffans level of legendary. You've already told your secrets, sis. It's over."
Later, the rapper addressed rumours of her having a crush on West. "Babes, Kanye has tried to sign me four times. I've repeatedly rejected him," she wrote to Fox.
"Kanye has a crush on me, but I like his white friends more tbh," claiming the father of four owes her "A LOT of money." Banks revealed in the texts how Fox had warned her not to "talk s**t" about her son." Nonetheless, she typed alongside the message, "Okay your son is a crackbaby....what next" and later uploaded a photo showing Fox sitting on the floor in lingerie while appearing to inject herself in the arm with a needle.
Responding to Banks’ claims, Fox leaked a screenshot of messages exchanged between them.
In one of the texts, Banks allegedly asks her, "Julia who sells molly and Percocet in NYC?" to which Fox responds, "Hi love sry I was sleeping!!! let me ask around cuz I deleted all the dealers from my phone when my sis OD'd."
The actress said she was forced to unveil the exchange after she was repeatedly called a junkie online following Banks' "crackbaby" slur.
"So it has come to my attention that this troll keeps calling me a junkie umm sis do u recall @azealiabanks," Fox wrote alongside the screengrab.
Later in the post, she opened up about her addiction issues. "I'm open about my issues with addiction because I want to destigmatize it! Not all addicts are 'junkies'," she wrote. "That is so horrible to say. It's a real f*cking disease. And I've also been open about my recovery journey!!! But nobody wants to mention that right..... If this troll says one more thing about my parenting or my son..." She added, "I was too nice to her cuz I felt sorry for her but now I realize why she spends all the holidays alone. Nobody wants that energy sis!!!"
