Julia Fox could make millions following her split with Kanye West after seeing her Google search trends escalate by almost 100 percent following their chance meeting on New Year’s Eve.
The once little known actress, 32, has become a household name of sorts following a short-lived two-month romance with the beleaguered rapper and fashion designer, from whom she split in February.
Industry insiders now claim mother-of-one Julia can now expect to earn an estimated $100,000 for every public appearance she makes going forward, as well as a predicted $50,000 for every endorsed social media post.
Having walked the LaQuan fashion show runway in New York earlier this week the former dominatrix has seen her star meteorically rise as a consequence of her whirlwind romance with West, which prompted inevitable headlines around the world.
Wow! Julia Fox could make millions following her split with Kanye West after seeing her Google search trends escalate by almost 100 percent following their chance meeting on New Year’s Eve
But insiders warn she ‘will need to do something tangible’ very soon in order to keep herself in the spotlight, while predicting she’s in a position to charge a jaw-dropping $50,000 for a single Instagram post.
Her profile’s follower count on the social media platform has risen to a whopping 1.2 million since the beginning of the year – and she’s reportedly been scouted by Madonna to portray her friend Debi Mazar in her upcoming biopic.
Prof Jonathan Shalit OBE, Chairman of InterTalent Rights Group, told MailOnline: ‘Kanye’s dating of Julia for a short while has catapulted her stardom and earning power from hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars.
‘The association with Kanye is the best thing ever for Julia’s career. She was not totally the star that the association with Kanye has made her.

‘Kanye’s using of Julia to get back at Kim Kardashian has won her a massive vote!
‘She’ll get a fee of around $100,000 to attend an event and, for Instagram posts, $50,000 a time.
‘Kanye will certainly have bumped her by 50% – but she will need to do something tangible this year to avoid the Kanye spoke fading away.’

The Stronger hitmaker has been accused of using Julia to make his ex-wife Kim Kardashian jealous, who he married in 2014 before splitting in 2021. They share children North, eight, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, two.
Julia has previously insisted she’s not one ‘to wait for things to be handed to me’ and, after just handful of appearances with Kanye, saw her fame skyrocket.
Born in Italy to her Italian mum and American dad, after her parents split she spent the first six years of her life being raised by her grandfather in Sirona before making the move to be with her father in New York.
The model has also talked about her ‘unstable’ upbringing which saw her move from borough to borough. At one point, she was homeless.
She also admitted to Rolling Stone in a 2020 interview that she stole clothes to try and emulate the wealthy women she saw around Manhattan, eventually getting arrested for shoplifting at Bloomingdale’s.
She admitted: ‘You’re seeing this really extravagant display of wealth, and you’re trying to look like that, but you have to do it by stealing.’

At 15, she ran away with her drug-dealer boyfriend but because of the free spirited lifestyle her father allowed her no one realised she was missing for three weeks.
In her late teens she worked as a dominatrix, earning money and building her confidence while still in high school. She dabbled in art and started a knitwear business before setting her heart on acting.
She landed her first acting role in Adam Sandler’s 2019 Netflix hit Uncut Gems, with the part of Adam’s girlfriend Julia written for her.
She had struck up a friendship via social media with the filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie, who pushed for her to get the role even after producers Martin Scorsese and Scott Rudin argued for a bigger name.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, Julia explained how ‘Josh would hit me up every few months and ask me for suggestions on the character. Of course, I molded her to be what I wanted her to be, which conveniently was also what Josh wanted her to be.’

Next up for Julia is the lead role in the recently announced Upper Cut: Highlights of My Hollywood Life, an adaptation of the internationally bestselling memoir by Carrie White.
The film tells the story of the ‘First Lady of Hairdressing’ and her addiction and recovery. White was the most high-profile hair stylist of her day, working on shoots with Marlon Brando, Elizabeth Taylor, Elvis and more.
But behind the glamorous career, her world was fuelled by champagne and vodka, pills, cocaine, and heroin. The movie is due to start filming this year.
Away from her blossoming career, Julia shares a son, Valentino, 11 months with her private pilot husband Peter Artemiev, whom she married in 2018.

In December, Julia took to Instagram to call out her estranged husband, accusing him of turning his back on her and their son, and calling him a ‘dead beat alcoholic drug addict dad.’
Julia ripped her ex in a series of recent Instagram Stories posts, sharing an image of Peter and writing, ‘Have you seen this deadbeat dad?’ and said he be found ‘at most strip clubs, Lucien, Paul’s [Baby Grand], Casablanca, the streets etc.’
She said that it was ‘traumatic’ for her to review the screenshots, videos and photos related to her claims about the pilot, including a clip in which he was calling her names, according to Page Six.
‘I can’t even do it anymore,’ she began.

‘I just don’t want my son f***ed up cuz he feels like his dad was absent or loved alcohol and partying more than him … this man left me with a 5 month old and a dog and a home and ALL THE BILLS. It’s wrong!!! It’s not fair!!!’
In a separate post, a follower told Julia that her acting career could suffer amid the public vitriol. She said in response, ‘This is MY SON’S LIFE we are talking about – I don’t give a f*** about my ‘acting career.”’
She added: ‘My son loves his dad. I’ve accepted that his Dad refuses to present and I’ve made peace with it but I’m sure as s*** gonna work the public.’
The Instagram Stories posts have since expired.
Peter denied the allegations to Page Six, as he said, ‘I was saddened to learn of the utterly false statements made on social media by Julia Fox, my co-parent, who is clearly struggling.’

He continued: ‘Out of respect for her privacy and to protect our child, I will not comment further.’
An insider told the outlet of the Brooklyn native: ‘From what I know, he loves his kid and I don’t think he’s a horrible father.’
Julia confirmed her separation from Kanye on Monday in a post denying she was in tears after their break-up, and admitted she was never ‘in love’ with the rapper.
Rather than be upset, she referred to herself as a ‘#1 hustler’ and hinted that she now plans to write a tell-all book about the short-lived romance.
Julia told fans in a note: ‘Y’all would love if I was soooo upset! 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?!’
Doubling down on her denial of being upset, Julia added: ‘and for the record the only time I cried in 2022 was on Feb 6th on my dead BFF bday.’
Julia was referring to the tragic death of good friend and celebrity manager Chris Huvane.
She finished her statement by writing: ‘Anyway If u want the full tea ur gonna have to buy the book when it comes out :)’

Julia later spoke out about their ‘difficult’ romance in more detail in an interview with The Cut.
She explained: ‘When I’m with Ye. But even when I’m with my son, it’s also very difficult. It feels like you’re just going with the flow, but the flow is very hectic, if that makes sense.
‘It’s a lot of last-minute decisions or deciding to go somewhere at the last minute and activating when needed.’
She added: ‘I’ve never been operating at the level that Ye is. I never wanted to be super-megafamous. It’s a life-ender for some celebrities. They become reclusive and paranoid and hide. I refuse to not live authentically.’

It comes after an unearthed Instagram comment from Julia, captured by HollywoodUnlocked, showed her claim the Grammy winner had encouraged her to reveal details about their relationship.
A fan had blasted the filmmaker in a comment telling her: ‘You talked about the man in the press like you all were married. Just desperate for the attention. Wasn’t even 15mins, maybe like 2 mins of fame.
But she fired back at the troll, writing: ‘He f***ing wanted me to!!!!’
After Kanye and Julia struck up a romance at the beginning of the year, sources claimed it was a ploy to make his ex ‘jealous.’
‘Kanye is trying to make Kim jealous by being very public with Julia,’ one source claimed to Entertainment Tonight.

‘He is trying to make a point. Julia thinks Kanye is really cool and is also just enjoying the ride while it lasts.’
However, things imploded between the pair just as the singer began to publicly declare his wish to one day reunite with his estranged wife.
He also made threats to Kim’s new boyfriend Pete Davidson and then sent her roses to her LA home, despite her filing for divorce from Kanye last year.
The Jesus Walks songster wrote in his Instagram post: ‘I’ve learned that using all caps makes people feel like I’m screaming at them. I’m working on my communication.’
‘I can benefit from a team of creative professionals, organizers, mobilizers and community leaders. Thank everybody for supporting me.’

‘I know sharing screen shots was jarring and came off as harassing Kim. I take accountability. I’m still learning in real time. I don’t have all the answers. To be good leader is to be a good listener.’
The backtrack comes a day after he shared screenshots from Kim where she pleaded with him to stop putting her current beau Pete in danger.
The superstar artist shared a shot from the 2001 film Baby Boy on Monday, in which Ving Rhames puts Tyrese Gibson in a violent chokehold, writing, ‘UPON MY WIFE’S REQUEST PLEASE NOBODY DO ANYTHING PHYSICAL TO SKETE IM GOING TO HANDLE THE SITUATION MYSELF.’
He posted a series of screenshot of texts from Kim saying he was making things uncomfortable for the SNL star.
In the texts, Kim said Kanye was ‘creating a dangerous and scary environment and someone will hurt Pete and this will be all your fault,’ later saying, ‘There are dangerous people out there and this is scary and it doesn’t have to be.’
Oh no! He also made threats to Kim’s new boyfriend Pete Davidson and then sent her roses to her LA home, despite her filing for divorce from Kanye last year (pictured in October 2021)
The Can’t Tell Me Nothing rapper replied to his estranged wife via text, ‘I will always do everything to protect you and our family forever. And I listened to you and told everyone to make sure nothing physical happens to Skete.’
In a subsequent post, Kim asked the Heartless vocalist why he couldn’t keep any of their conversations private, to which he responded, ‘Cause I got a text from my favorite person in the world.’
The Bound 2 rapper continued to the reality star, ‘I’m your number one fan … Why wouldn’t I tell everyone!!!!’
In his attack on Sunday, Kanye called the comedian a ‘d***head’ and shared a screengrab of his private text to him.
The SNL star had texted the rapper: ‘…you as a man I’d never get in the way of your children. That’s a promise. How you guys go about raising your kids is your business and not mine. I do hope [some] day I can meet them and we can all be friends.’
Conceding: The Jesus Walks songster wrote in his Instagram post: ‘I’ve learned that using all caps makes people feel like I’m screaming at them. I’m working on my communication’
Kanye – who suffers from bipolar disorder – shared a snap of Pete with his friend Machine Gun Kelly in their underwear captioned: ‘No you will never meet my children.’
He had ‘no comment’ about a rumor that Ariana Grande ended her four-month engagement to Pete over him allegedly sending intimate photos of the pair to her ex Mac Miller before his 2018 death.
Knye seemed especially outraged that the Staten Island native – who’s in the process of lasering off all 100 of his tattoos – once had his ‘hero’ Hillary Clinton inked on his calf.
‘When I tag people I’m just putting together the web. There are a group of people who run media and the election. Thank god for free speech.
‘Look at this d***head. I wonder if Instagram gonna shut down my page for dissing [Hillary] Clinton’s ex boyfriend.’
He added: ‘Y’all seen that tattoo but if I speak up then I’m crazy. I told you not going to use that one no more when a garbage man goes to work he gonna smell like trash but it’s time to take the trash out the house…You can Google the Hillary thing I’m not making this s*** up.’
The fashion designer earlier Monday attempted to win back his ex Kardashian with a grand gesture on Valentine’s Day amid their feud.
The Yeezy founder sent a massive arrangement of red roses to her house in a truck branded, ‘MY VISION IS KRYSTAL KLEAR.’
The delivery came hours after the rapper declared his love for Kim and their four children following news of his split from girlfriend Julia Fox.
Kanye has previously threatened to ‘beat Pete Davidson’s a**’ on a recent song from his upcoming album Donda 2.
