HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA - DECEMBER 11: Julia Fox attends the premiere of A24's "Uncut Gems" at The Dome at Arclight Hollywood on December 11, 2019 in Hollywood, California.

Julia Fox has hit back at critics who have accused her of dating Kanye West for "clout" and "money."

During the Friday episode of her and Niki Takesh's podcast "Forbidden Fruits," Fox, 31, shut down speculation that she had any ulterior motives for getting involved with the rich rapper, making it clear that dating billionaires is nothing new to her.

"People are like ‘Oh, you’re only in it for the fame, you’re in it for the clout, you’re in it for the money.’ Honey, I’ve dated billionaires my entire adult life, let’s keep it real," Fox said. "It’s funny 'cause I’m getting all of this attention, but I really couldn’t care."

The "Uncut Gems" star said that she only cares about making her art and "putting things into the world." She encouraged everyone to watch her movie or read her book rather than follow her whereabouts with West. 

"That is more thrilling to me now than eyes on me. I couldn't care less," she continued.

West's new lady love also opened up about the star-studded dinner she attended with the "Heartless" rapper, Madonna and other celebrities. According to Fox, the other guests, including Evan Ross, Floyd Mayweather and ex Tampa Bay Buccaneers player Antonio Brown, crashed the event.

"There was a lot going on. Madonna was there. I was actually supposed to be at dinner for just Madonna and I … and all of these other celebs crashed," Fox added.

Fox has been linked to the Grammy winner since they met on New Year's Eve. She confirmed her romantic relationship with West in a PDA-packed photoshoot and candid essay for Interview magazine.

In a previous episode of her podcast, Fox said she is "just living in the moment" and doesn't "have any expectations" when it comes to her relationship with West. 

"There's no labels, none of that. It's just people that make each other feel better. It's really like such a Gemini/Aquarius connection. It's very inspirational. Our minds, we both work very fast; we keep up with each other, which is cool," she explained.

Fox went on to praise the "Donda" artist as a "doer" who can make "any idea can become reality."

"Anything is possible, any dream is possible. And I love that! And he's just such a doer. He's like, 'Let's do it now. Don't wait,'" Fox said of the rapper. "It's honestly just an honor to be in [his] presence and to be able to experience history happening."
