Kim Kardashian and ex-husband Kanye West may be trying to break up romantically, but their new partners have overlapping backgrounds.
Amid the news that Ye is dating Julia Fox, a Paper magazine The 2019 cover shoot resurfaced with the 31-year-old actress as Barbie alongside Pete Davidson as Ken.
Davidson’s new relationship with Kardashian has heated up recently, and the two are currently enjoying a romantic getaway after the Bahamas vacation. Ironically, the cover of Pete’s Paper was for their Break the Internet series which was first made famous by Kim in 2014.
Six Degrees: As Kanye West was dating Julia Fox, a 2019 Paper Magazine cover photoshoot resurfaced with the 31-year-old actress as Barbie alongside Pete Davidson as Ken
In November 2019, Pete Davidson sat down for a candid interview with Paper and posed for a series of daring snaps as a tattooed Ken doll alongside a gorgeous model playing her Barbie.
The model turned out to be actress Julia Fox, who is currently romantically linked to the ex of Pete’s current girlfriend – Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, respectively.
During the interview, which took place shortly after his relationship with Margaret Qualley ended (after dating Kate Beckinsale and becoming engaged to Ariana Grande), Pete opened up about love.
“My love language, when I’m in a relationship, is that I treat the person with whom I am like a princess,” he said at the time. “I’m trying to go as far as I can, because that’s what you’re supposed to do?”
“If you’re in a relationship with someone, you’re just supposed to make that person feel as special as possible. But sometimes when you put that much on someone it overwhelms them, and then they don’t know if they could get close.
Julia Fox’s burgeoning romance with Ye led to the overhaul of Davidson’s over two-year-old play.
The actress served as a model for the set and was not interviewed as part of the play, and it is not clear whether she and Pete knew each other outside of the project.
Earlier this week, Ye and Fox were spotted enjoying an evening on Broadway in New York City to see Jeremy O. Harris’s critically acclaimed Slave Play at the August Wilson Theater.

Kanye and Julia then surfaced at Carbone in Manhattan, which happens to be his ex-wife Kim Kardashian’s favorite restaurant in New York City.
Kim filed for divorce in early 2021 after six years of marriage and four children together, and the reality TV star has already started moving with SNL star Pete Davidson.
The couple were first linked in October and things are getting more serious with Kim and Pete spotted boarding a private jet to the Bahamas together this week.
Ever since the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is based in Los Angeles with her four children and Pete lives in New York City, where he performs for SNL, the two have traveled back and forth to spend time together on the coast. .

They were previously seen spending time together on December 18, which also marked the last episode of SNL before a hiatus. Due to the increase in COVID-19 cases brought on by the Omicron variant, most of the cast on the show missed the episode for safety reasons, so Pete was given the night off.
He took Kim to one of his favorite movie theaters in Staten Island and rented a screening room so they could have a private screening of Ridley Scott’s latest film House Of Gucci, which stars Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Al Pacino and Jared Leto, among others.
The couple have gotten so comfortable over the past few weeks that Kim also hasn’t bothered Pete pulling out his luxurious Rolls-Royce himself for some last-minute Christmas shopping.
During one of his outings, he was seen shopping for high-end jewelry, although it’s not clear if they were meant for Kim.
Page Six previously reported that Kris was “obsessed” with Pete and the whole family seems to have enjoyed spending time with him over the past few months.
Kris even threw him a birthday party in November, which was attended by Public Enemy hype man Flavor Flav.
