Julia Fox has apologised to her ex Peter Artemiev after publicly calling him a “deadbeat alcoholic”.

The Uncut Gems star has made headlines in recent weeks for dating Kanye West, but last month hit out at her former partner Artemiev, with whom she has a young son called Valentino.

“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,” Fox wrote, with Artemiev denying the “utterly false statements”.

Presenting her podcast Forbidden Fruits on Friday (14 January), Fox offered a statement of apology to her former partner.

“All I want to say is, I’m sorry,” she said.

“You’re not a deadbeat. I know that you’re not and I know that it wasn’t that you weren’t trying to see Valentino, it’s that you weren’t trying to see me.”

Fox alleged that she had written the post at a time when “everyone had Covid” and she hadn’t heard from him for over a month.

“I had no help at all whatsoever and my friend was out and saw Peter out and Peter was saying something along the lines of, ‘That b**** won’t let me see my son.’ And when that was relayed to me… my blood boiled. I just snapped.”

However, she confirmed that the pair were on better terms once again and that Valentino was with his father while they recorded the podcast.

Earlier this week, Fox ​​was forced to deny that her relationship with West was a PR stunt.
