In the latest episode of her podcast, Forbidden Fruits with Julia Fox and Niki Takesh, Julia gave a moment to the allegations she had been receiving in the media.

She said: "It's funny cause I'm getting all of this attention, but I really couldn't care. People are like 'Oh, you're only in it for the fame, you're in it for the clout, you're in it for the money.'

"Honey, I've dated billionaires my entire adult life, let's keep it real," she laughed off the accusation.

Speaking on the increased media attention, Fox seemed to see the silver lining of the limelight: "Watch my movie, read my book. That is more thrilling to me now than eyes on me."

In an earlier episode of Forbidden Fruits, the actress and filmmaker spoke briefly about her new flame, saying: "I'm just living in the moment and I don't have any expectations. There's no labels."

The actress cleared up that her relationship with the 'Stronger' singer was not a PR stunt despite the whirring claims: "There's always people that think that every single celebrity scandal is a set-up. I personally don't."

The mum-of-one also gave an insight into her burgeoning romance with the rapper when she penned a short essay for Interview Magazine.

Kanye surprised his new beau with a photoshoot for the publication, in which he styled, and several steamy snaps were published with Julia's words.

She wrote: "Everything with us has been so organic. I don’t know where things are headed but if this is any indication of the future I’m loving the ride."
