Julia Fox Says She Chooses To Live In A Small Apartment So Her Son Doesn’t Grow Up To Be A Prick
Last week, Julia Fox gave us a TikTok tour of her surprisingly modest New York apartment, complete with clutter, a bed in the living room, and a wee mouse problem. Relatable (except switch out Ms. Fox’s single mouse for my 12,000 potato bugs). She shares her Upper East Side home with her 2-year-old son, Valentino. Page Six reports that yesterday, 32-year-old Julia made another TikTok in response to this comment on her original video: “Isn’t she worth like 30 million dollars?” Translation: why doesn’t Julia live in a mansion and/or penthouse like other famous types? Julia says it’s because she doesn’t want her son to grow up to be “a fuckin’ prick.”
Julia starts her TikTok off by saying she didn’t expect her apartment tour to go viral and that she’s definitely not worth 30 million dollars (“not even close”). She adds that she doesn’t think “any one person” should ever even need 30 million dollars. Then Julia explains her reasoning for staying in her apartment, which is “not that deep.” She says it’s been her son’s home all his life, and she wants to keep him humble:
Even though I could’ve probably afforded a bigger place… probably, cuz I am in New York, after all… um, you know, it’s about having that sense of normalcy for Valentino. I don’t want him to grow up and be, like, a fucking prick. You know what I mean? I want him to be in touch with the fucking real world. Because I grew up in the real world, believe it or not.
Julia also addresses the commenters who accused her of spending her money on “thousands of dollars worth of couture.” She clarifies that she borrows her couture fashions and wears a lot of “young designers who are just starting out”. Julia also claims “all those celebrity net worth [websites] are complete BS.” Here’s Julia’s TikTok about wealth, which she shot on vacation in the Bahamas:

Sorry, Valentino! Unlike your mom’s ex Kanye West’s kids, you’re being raised as a normal. Well, not normal-normal. Julia Fox’s version of normal. And I’ll bet that shit’s still pretty weird.
