Before Julia Fox dated Kanye “Ye” West, Us Weekly reports that she married a pilot named Peter Artemiev in 2018. The pair’s relationship was short-lived and they split in February 2020. Much like their marriage, their courtship was swift, intense, and unconventional. In a January 2022 episode of her podcast with co-host Niki Takesh, “Forbidden Fruits,” Fox revealed that she had a shotgun wedding with Artemiev after only one month of dating.
“At the Little White Wedding Chapel [in Las Vegas], nobody knew, I was dressed like a cowgirl,” Fox shared. “And [Artemiev] wore cowboy boots, wew looked so f***ing cute. We were so in love. I literally dreamed him up and manifested him, like as a city girl from Manhattan I always wanted to date a Russian guy from Coney Island.”
Fox seems to make a habit of going all-in on her relationships if she feels the connection and timing is right. On her first date with Ye, for example, she participated in an intimate photoshoot at Carbone, before being whisked away to a hotel suite full of designer clothes, as BuzzFeed reported. When it came to Artemiev, the actor also knew what she wanted early on. “I was single for like four years prior to [dating Artemiev] and no guy could even get close to me. That man f***ing locked it down and married me in a month,” she recalled, via “Forbidden Fruits.”
