The Uncut Gems actress delved into their fling in the pages of her new memoir, Down The Drain, claiming that she only jumped into a relationship with the 46-year-old to get him ‘off the Skims designer’s case’.
During a book talk with Richie Shazam held at the Metrograph in New York on Thursday, it was revealed that the 33-year-old had a secret bond with the reality stars due to her fashion line, Franziska Fox.
Speaking to the crowd about how they dedicated their efforts for the brand, Julia told the crowd: ‘We used to have all our samples in the trunk and just drive around the tristate area to stores, hustling the clothes to stores.’
Close friend Richie, who served as the ‘representative’, recalled: ‘I had a tie on.
‘I’m just also a really good scammer. I remember when we were at the tail end, this is a little unknown tidbit, one of the last orders that was placed – because I hit them up – were the Kardashians.
‘They placed an order for our clothing line because they wore our pieces all the time. They helped our business stay alive because they placed an order and we were sold at the DASH store, when that was a thing.
‘We were in our early 20s, we didn’t really know what we were doing. I just cold called them because they were wearing our clothes so much. It ended up working out and that’s the thing of being persistent, we were very persistent.’
‘And shameless,’ Julia interjected, as Richie added: ‘We had nothing to lose.’
Julia went on to date Kanye from last January to February, and has remained a permanent fixture in the spotlight ever since.
Ahead of her book release, which has sped up the New York Times Bestseller list, she admitted that she went ‘very lightly’ on the details surrounding their fling, as she didn’t want any bad blood with the Grammy-winner – who she described as ‘the artist’.
In a previous TikTok, she delved into their romance and claimed that she had only continued dating him so that he would leave Kim alone publicly.
‘By the time me and him got together, he hadn’t been doing anything “out there” yet. The only thing he had done was change the [lyrics] of the song and said, “Come back to me Kimberley.” That was the only thing when we met.’
‘He was texting me, I wasn’t really answering,’ she continued. ‘But then I had this thought – maybe I can get him off of Kim’s case! Maybe I can distract him and just get him to like me.
‘I knew if anyone can do it, it’s me. Because when I set my mind to something I do it.’
