Kanye West’s new girlfriend Julia Fox is backing the rapper and still wants to continue their relationship even after his recent dramas, it has been reported.
The 44-year-old star admitted to punching autographs this week, claiming that his ex-wife Kim Kardashian’s security “prevented” him from seeing his daughter North, eight.
But actress Julia, 31, is undeterred, according to TMZ, who was told by a source she is “comforting” him in the wake of the ongoing drama with Kim and is under investigation for battery following the fan incident.

The insider added that she “knew she would have to help him navigate his divorce” – after Kanye shadowed Kim’s “new boyfriend” Pete Davidson.
Julia and Kanye have been inseparable since the start of their whirlwind romance at the beginning of the year.
On Friday, Kanye admitted to punching an autograph seeker who allegedly incited him outside a West Hollywood club earlier this week as the rapper is under investigation for battery.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, West said he was outside the Soho Warehouse at 3 a.m. Thursday when a man who had been chasing him for autographs for the past few days allegedly provoked him.

“I say, ‘You don’t know what I’m dealing with right now,'” West said, referring to images of him snapping at the unknown man.
“I just finished these two songs, I came out of the studio, and this guy, he just had a real attitude, like, ‘What are you going to do? And do you see that?”
“I’m just telling you, that blue COVID mask won’t stop that knockout, you know what I mean?”
He added that at the time he was angry with Kim, who filed for divorce and is now dating Pete, and with a cousin who hadn’t told Kardashian that he wanted to visit one of their children at school.

“Security doesn’t come between me and my kids. And my kids won’t be on TikTok without my permission,” Kanye said, repeating his message to Kardashian.
He also said he was upset about her budding romance with Davidson.
“How are you going to blame me for behaving and kissing the guy you’re dating right in front of me. Everyone says ‘that’s cool,’ and I hear there’s a new friend in the house that I can’t even go to.”
West claims that the man he hit was not a fan of his, but someone who was trying to make money by selling autographs he received from the rapper on January 10.
“This is like the paparazzi, this is not a fan. This is someone who uses your image, who probably never listened to your songs.’
In dramatic footage of the aftermath of the incident, West yells “Get away from me” to his cousin, who tried to calm him down as the autograph seeker lies on the floor, clutching his head in pain.
Witnesses told TMZ that West punched the man twice in the head and once in the neck, knocking him down and the fan hitting his head on the sidewalk.

You heard his cousin say to the rapper, “I’m your family,” as she tried to grab his hand and let him relax.
‘No, get off me! No hands, no hands,’ West shouts.
“You should have talked to her,” he adds, now revealing that he was angry with his cousin for not telling his estranged wife that he wanted to visit their child at school.
He eventually blamed his nephew for his bad temper that made him furious after the altercation, which was captured on video by confused bystanders.
He said he eventually admitted to the attack because he was tired of portraying the incident in the media and wanted to take control of the story.
“This comes from the horse’s mouth. I’ve told you all before, you’re not fit to be in charge of my story,” West told Entertainment Tonight’s Jason Lee.
“I’ve told you before, I’ll take my story. I am writing my story. Why don’t you all do something, you know what I mean, except try to take someone down.”

The Los Angeles Police Department is currently investigating the case and has not yet made any arrests, but has identified West as a suspect.
Earlier in the night of the incident, West had been out with his rumored new girlfriend Julia Fox at Delilah in West Hollywood for a star-studded dinner date after spending the evening with Madonna and Floyd Mayweather.
The group seemed elated after Diana Ross’ son Evan Ross shared video footage of them on Instagram.
