Kanye West has been named a suspect in an alleged battery charge, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) has said.
The rapper is being investigated after an incident was reported in the early hours of Thursday morning (January 13) in Los Angeles.
It appears West was socializing with singer Madonna, boxer Floyd Mayweather and his actress girlfriend Julia Fox hours before the alleged offense.
But who is Julia Fox, and how long have the couple been together?
Here’s everything you need to know about her.
Who is Julia Fox?
The 31-year-old is an Italian-American actress, artist, model and filmmaker, best known for her debut performance in the 2019 film Uncut Gems alongside Adam Sandler.
Prior to her role in Uncut Gems, Fox was a clothing designer and launched a successful women’s knitwear line called Franziska Fox.
She has also worked as a painter and exhibiting photographer and self-published two photography books in 2015 and 2016.
In 2017, Fox held an art exhibition titled “RIP Julia Fox'”, which featured silk canvases painted with her own blood. She has also worked as a dominatrix and posed for the latest nude issue of Playboy magazine in 2015.
Fox is already married, having married private pilot Peter Artemiev in 2018.
The couple reportedly split in 2020, but in February 2021 it was announced that Fox had given birth to their son, Valentino, and they were pictured together at events through June 2021.
How long have West and Fox been dating?
In January 2022, Fox confirmed her romance with Kanye West and detailed their first dates in a blog post for Interview Magazine.
The pair met on New Years Eve in Miami and were later pictured together attending the Tony Award-nominated Slave Play on Broadway.
“After the play, we chose to dine at Le Carbone, which is one of my favorite restaurants,” she said.
“The whole restaurant loved it and cheered us on as it happened,” she added.
Fox, who is Italian-American, also shared a series of photos from their second date in which the couple were seen kissing passionately as she tried on clothes.
“You had an entire hotel suite full of clothes,” she revealed. “It was every girl’s dream come true. It felt like a real Cinderella moment.
Fox said she didn’t know where their relationship was going “but if it’s any indication of the future, I love the ride.”
What happened to Kim Kardashian?
The reality TV star filed for divorce from West in February 2021, citing irreconcilable differences that “continued to exist” between the two, following their extravagant 2014 wedding.
She is now dating comedian Pete Davidson.
Has West been arrested?
In a statement, the LAPD said, “This morning at 3 a.m. officers responded to Santa Fe Ave and Bay Street. A battery report has been completed with Kanye West as a named suspect.
“No arrests have been made and the incident is being investigated by our Newton Division.”
On the same day, it was announced that West would headline the 2022 Coachella Music Festival alongside Harry Styles and Billie Eilish.
The global megastar, 44, will fill the Sunday slots at the world-renowned event, which takes place in the Southern California desert.
