Azealia Banks Slams Julia Fox After Kanye West Breakup
Just days after announcing her split from Kanye West, Julia Fox found herself in a nasty feud with Azealia Banks.
On Tuesday night, the “212” rapper exposed her private text exchanges with the Uncut Gems actress, in which Banks called out her drug use and referred to Fox’s son as a “crackbaby.”
Fox warns Banks not to talk about her son. “Talk shit about my son again,” she wrote in one of the messages.
Fox also threatens to share a podcast where Banks allegedly “talks shit” about trans people.
In another text, Fox tells Banks, “You literally tried to say you’re [on] Beyoncé and Rihanna’s level [and] I have it recorded!!!!! Hahahaah we play it and laugh at u !!!!!”

In a separate message shared by Fox, Banks asks Fox if she knows anyone who sells molly and Percocet in New York City.
Julia wrote over the screenshot: “So it has come to my attention that this troll keeps calling me a junkie umm sis do u recall @azealiabanks.”
Julia also shared another text in which Azealia told Julia that she wants to stage a photo shoot with the paparazzi, and asked Julia if she could help her find a hotel room at a discount so she could shoot a last-minute video.
“I’m such a junkie and I’m so gross but here she is asking to get papped with me and then also asking me for a hotel plug,” Julia captioned the screenshot.
The actress addressed her past drug use in a since-deleted statement. “I’m open about my issues with addiction because I want to destigmatize it! Not al addicts are ‘junkies,'” she wrote.
“That is so horrible to say. It’s a real fu**ing 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…”
Fox 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!!!”
Banks also posted and deleted a photo of a woman who appears to be Fox shooting a drug into her arm with a needle with the word “Nausea” over it.
On Valentine’s Day, Fox announced that she and Ye had split after less than two months together.
“Y’all would love if I was soooo upset!” she wrote in an Instagram Story. “The media would love to paint a picture of me a sad lonely woman crying on a plane by myself but it’s NOT TRUE!! Why not see me for what I am which is a #1 hustler. I came up yall lol and not only that but Kanye and I are on good terms! I have love for him but I wasn’t in love w the man Jesus Christ what do u guys think I am 12 years old?!”
In response to her statement, Banks accused Fox of being a sex worker and questioned her relationship with Ye. “We already know the tea foolia! U came to Miami looking for sex work, same lawyer was in contract with Ye and it was a weak PR stunt from the jump. What did u hustle him for? 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.”
Earlier in the month, Banks called out Ye for “bullying” his daughter North and trying to “wreck the mental health” of Kim Kardashian. “Kanye is an abusive psychopath, it’s beyond mental illness,” she wrote.
